Travel with Kids: Best Menorca’s Beaches
With more than 200 Km of coast, Menorca is an ideal beach destination to enjoy with kids. Without a doubt, the least known island of the Balearic Islands, is the most calm and has breathtaking landscapes and beaches.
As Menorca has not being very exploited, it is easy to find nature and to access the beaches sometimes you have to walk a little between trees and natural roads
So in this post we would like to talk about three great beaches to enjoy with your little ones.
In Cala Galdana you have it all! It is an urbanized beach that has a wonderful landscape, rental of umbrellas and sun loungers, restaurants, beach clubs and even water sports. In our opinion, this is the best Menorca beach to go with kids.
It is a large beach, but as it being very closed does not have much waves, so it is perfect for kids to play in the water.
If once here you feel like walking, we recommend hike on the Camí de Cavalls, a path that connects with pristine coves like Cala Mitjana (20 minutes walking).
If you are having a beach day in Cala Galdana and you want to eat fresh fish, a good option is restaurant El Mirador.
This is one of the most popular virgin beaches in Menorca due to its white sand, fantastic turquoise waters and easy access. Since to get here, you can do it by car without having to walk too much. It is recommended to arrive early to be able to park in the parking lot of the beach.
It is an extensive beach surrounded by pine trees, so it is also possible to find shade.
Cala Mitjana It is not an urbanized beach, so we recommend bringing water and food in case you want to have lunch there. There are tables and benches under the pines. So if what you fancy is a picnic on the beach, Cala Mitjana is an ideal place in Menorca.
Cala Macarella is a beautiful unspoilt beach of Menorca, with turquoise water.
To get to this beach you have to walk a little more than in the two previous ones (around 15 minutes), since you have to park the car in one of its two parking. If you are traveling with children, we recommend to arrive early to leave the car in the nearest parking, to walk less.
Cala Macarella has a very popular Chiringuito (beach bar) serving good food. this is the only one restaurant in the beach and as this is a very popular beach it is best to eat early to find a table.
If once here, you want to explore the area, do not miss the walk to Cala Macarelleta. It is not the easiest hike (we don’t recommend strollers here), but worth doing because from this cliff you will have one of the best views of Menorca Island.
