Cala Mitjana | Best beaches in Menorca
Platja de Son Bou
Right in the middle between Ciutadella and Mahón, you can relax all day at the beach of Son Bou. This is another popular place, but quite different from the ones before. It’s a platja – a very long beach where you’ll find a restaurant, lifeguards, and sunbeds to rent. Often mentioned as one of the best beaches in Menorca, it’s a bit more touristy. But if you walk a bit, you’ll find a spot to have for yourself, as the beach is super long. We came just at the right time, around 3 p.m. when all the Spanish went for lunch, so we had lots of space.

After visiting the remarkably pretty old town of Binibeca, we were just looking for a beach close by to cool down. So without any expectation, we headed to Cala Binibeca. It’s easily accessible, just a few meters from the parking lot. Thus, we were so pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem – mentioned nowhere but for me easily one of the best beaches in Menorca. The small bay has some shallow, crystal-clear water as if you were swimming in a pool. Besides, there is a small beach bar where you can refresh yourself.

Fancy some cliff jumping? Then Caló Blanc is the place to go. It’s not really a beach, as there are mostly cliffs, that make you feel like you’re in Croatia. Definitely the most beautiful shades of blue over there. For those who don’t like sand sticking to their body at the beach, laying down on the cliffs can be a better option. That’s why it shouldn’t be missed among the best beaches in Menorca.
Another stunning beach worth seeing is Es Grau – a long, shallow beach. Besides, kayaking is also a popular thing over there. You can book tours with a guide that last around 2 hours and stop by the historic cliff caves. Because the water is not deep in Es Grau, it’s supposed to be one of the best beaches in Menorca for families.

Cala d’es Talaier
This is another bay in the southwest of the island, attracting lots of Spanish girls for topless sunbathing. This is quite popular all over the island, by the way. As mentioned above, all beaches in Menorca offer blue water and an afternoon well spent.
Another paradisiacal beach with calm water and a gentle slope into the water is Son Saura. This southern beach is loved by locals as well as by tourists.
