Cala Morell - Location
Cala Morell is located on the north west coast of the island, 12km east of the beautiful old city of Ciutadella. Approximately 50 mins., from the Airport.
A small quiet fishing village resort and residential area on the north west coast. Best known for the extensive man made (Bronze and Iron ages) cave dwellings nearby that give a real sense of cave "living" ( though many caves were also for burial ). A good place to combine with a visit to the beautiful virgin beach of Algaiarens and walks through the very attractive valleys of Vall de Algaiarens.
It is a rugged natural area with dramatic coastline. Tourism has been limited here adding to its authentic Menorca appeal. There is a little Bar restaurant with views over the bay by the beach.
If you stay here it is a good place for contemplation plus you can organise a bus/tax system for late pm evenings trips to Ciutadella.

See and Do
Cala Morell Caves
Some are sophisticated with central roof columns and 'windows'. Some are obviously younger and larger, cut with more advanced metal tools, but the smaller older ones gives a view into another world. Artifacts are now on show in the Museu de Menorca.
3 Km away is Son Angel a farm that provides all types of riding experiences. Its also on the way to the fabulous virgin beach of Algairiens, so you can combine the two for a wonderful days' experience.
Is a farm offering horserides for all. For bookings call Antonio Bosch 609833902
On the road to virgin beach playa Algaiarens so combine the two!
There is a beautiful valley area of Algairiens east of the resort, with very picturesque valley and forest walks to the coast and beach Cala Algairiens.

Menorca Holiday Tip
Mahon will mostly be written on timetables, front of busus and signposts as Mao, it's correct local name. Also posted in the local papers eg Ultima Hora Menorca, Menorca towards the back pages are most of the island's bus timetables. You will nearly always find a copy of this in a cafe bar ( any day in season will do ) - make notes, please don't take paper as its there for all to read. If you are staying longer than a week take a trip on this good network and see some of the other resorts/towns first hand.
Cala Morell - Near by ( 12 km Bus 62 )
A taste of former elegant times with fine old spanish palaces, moorish influences, a wonderful old centre and a charming little harbour. Ciutadella was the original capital of the island lying at the western edge of the island looking out to its bigger neighbour Mallorca. A superb contrast to the beach and holiday resort. Great atmosphere and shopping and a place to wander the pedestrianised old city and its many narrow streets with hidden shops and Cafe treats. Also competes with Mahon for the title of the best music bars and venues on the island. The scene for the spectacular Sant Joan festival in June, when stunning native black horses parade through the streets and the brave try to "touch the horses' heart" as it rears in front of them.
Wi-Fi and Internet
