What not to miss in Menorca? its coves, you cannot visit Menorca without enjoying a day att he beach with your family.
All the coves in Menorca are beautiful, we recommend Cala Mesquida, in Mahón. It is characterized by its tranquility, even in the busiest periods on the island, and for its easy access. You can access it by car and you will soon arrive to the sandy beach with crystalline waters and about 300 mts. long. This beach is surrounded by nature and close to the town.
It is an ideal beach for children to bathe, as boats cannot anchor near the coast. The space available for bathing is very large.
It is very comfortable, parking is nearby and free, it has a lifeguard service, and there is a beach bar at the entrance of the cove, and also restaurants nearby in the town.
If you like snorkeling, having rocky bottoms and quite deep, you will enjoy its landscape.
In the afternoon, you can enjoy the sunset over the town with a lovely natural light that you will fall in love with. We recommend going up the hill on the left of the beach to enjoy beautiful views of the beach and the defense tower built by the English. It takes only 10 minutes to be there.
You can end the beach day with lunch or dinner at the Cap Roig restaurant, which is 5 minutes away by car.
