Algaiarens beach is located in the north of the island of Menorca, and it is formed by two virgin beaches: Tancats and Es Bot. It is not a very popular place that will, however, fulfil your summer expectations.
Algaiarens beach, Menorca. The local's favourite
Algaiarens beaches: Tancats
The closest beach to the parking area is Tancats, just a short 5-minute walk, making it a great option if you want to avoid the hikes that you need to take to other beaches. It is a white-sand, lovely beach with some of the most crystalline waters on the island.
Crispy-cold, turquoise waters await for you. Nothing more exhilarating than a swim in the sea to make you forget the crazy hot weather of Spain in summer.
Algaiarens beaches: Es Bot
If you follow the path from the parking to the right and cross the pine forest you will get to Es Bot beach. As you will go through a protected area you might even encounter sea turtles on the way!
Es Bot is a great option if Tancats is full. The walk is around 1 km from the parking area.

Pro tips for your visit to Algaiarens beach, Menorca.
Both Algaiarens’ beaches are some of the wildest beaches of Menorca. Luckily, they are not the most popular.
Both beaches are a very good option if you visit Menorca in summer and the other beaches are crowded. We visited on a weekday in July 2021, got there at around 10 am, and the place was pretty much empty.
While the waters are crystal clear, the area is not very interesting for snorkelling.
There are two parking areas. Skip the first one and follow to the second as is much closer to the beach.
The beach has no services so make sure to bring everything you need for your visit, especially if you plan on having an epic day!
