Approaching the northernmost extremes of Menorca, Cala de Cavalleria is two large arcs of yellow-orange sand, edged to either side by rocks and low hills beyond. Situated in a protected area, you won’t find the large-scale development that can be found on some of Menorca’s other beaches, though the beauty of Cala de Cavalleria ensures it still can get busy during the peak summer months.

Cala de Cavalleria offers nearby free parking, and runs for an impressive 500 metres around its bay. When the sea is calm, it’s possible to swim out and search for sea urchins around the rock that protrudes from the bay. When less calm, visitors can try their hands at surfing, though Cavalleria will never win the affections of true surfing aficionados – the waves simply aren’t large enough.

Cala Mica is just a ten-minute walk away along the Cami de Cavalls, and offers wonderful views back to Cavalleria, from where in looks like a large number three carved between sea and land.
