The best quiet beaches in Menorca. The 3 secluded calas we loved
- Algaiarens beach, the best of the quiet beaches in the north of Menorca
- Cala Viola. The best secluded beach we found
- Caleta de Elisabet, the most special of the quiet beaches we found in Menorca
Do not get me wrong, all the beaches of the Island are stunning.
However, the most popular ones get so crowded some of them close as early as 9am.
But not to worry!
We have done all the exploring to find the best quiet beaches in Menorca to experience the island as wildly and relaxingly as possible.
Algaiarens beach, the best of the quiet beaches in the north of Menorca
Located in the north of the island of Menorca, and formed by two virgin beaches: Tancats and Es Bot.
The waters are crystal clear, there is plenty of space and it is not a very popular place as only locals tend to visit.
The walk is short and the beach long so it is the perfect place if you do not want to wake up too early.
You can find all the information about it in this post>>
- If you need a place to stay in Menorca on a budget Hostal Sa Posada Set Cales, in Ciutadella’s city centre is a great option. Have a look here>
- If you can spend a bit more, Divina Suites Hotel Singular ,in a XVII century historic building in the heart of Ciutadella, has a lovely Mediterranean vibe. Have a look here>
Cala Viola. The best secluded beach we found
Located in the north of the Island the surrounding of Cala Viola are just spectacular.
Cala Viola is an area with three small beaches made of a mix of thick sand and rocks. It is a very relaxing area and it is likely that you will have the beach just for yourself – at least for a while – if you get there early.
Special shoes like the ones below are recommended as you will find many rocks in the water.
If you still want to visit the most popular beaches a great way to do it is by boat. Have a look at this boat tour.
Caleta de Elisabet, the most special of the quiet beaches we found in Menorca
If you explore to the right from Binimel·là beach you will find a wild area full of small beaches only locals know about.
Caleta de Elisabet is our favourite but you will also find other lovely options. We saw a beach in a cave and a secret beach only accessible if you know where to look. You can read all about the secret beach in this post>>
We got to Caleta Elisabet quite late and still found the beach as empty as you can see in the pic.
