Guide to Menorca's Virgin Beaches

For serious and occasional walkers much of the accessible coastline of Menorca is ringed by the Cami de Cavalls offering a new way to explore and to discover yet more hidden beaches and secluded bays.

Our Tip means this beach features something extra special to recommend over the other's. It might be the snorkeling, setting , easy to get to.

Our interactive Beach Map will allow you to see all the island's virgin beaches and to locate any. Remember the island is small so if you are mobile you can visit a new beach every (half) day!

There is no such thing as a private beach on Menorca . They are all owned by the state and can be used by the public. Actually the entire coast line up to 6 meters inland is public property. However some of the coast line and remote beaches are only accessible by going through private land. You should respect this and keep to the tracks. Some land owners charge a small fee and restrict the visitor numbers which helps keeps the beaches in their pristine state. Dress appropriately and shut gates behind you. Respectful visitors are never turned away.

Protecting the Beaches for all

Please take a bag for your rubbish and take it away WITH YOU. DO NOT leave cigarette stubs!

Virgin Beaches

Getting to these beaches

Check out our detailed Individual Beach Guide for everything you could want to know.  Some have Car Parks set away from the beach with a further walk. The remotest beaches are only accessible only by sea or a long land trek.

You should ideally wear summer treking sandals for the ( sometimes ) 20-30 min. walks to reach them. Where Car parking is available provided by local land owners where indicated,but will be away from the coast for preservation reasons.

a Virgin Beach will have no or minimal buildings and is in it's natural state - it is not maintained and often will have no services ( eg toilets,places to buy food or drink )

The northern coast beaches are very varied, slightly larger than those in the south but are more exposed to the open sea on less calm days so will have more wind and waves. They typically have coarser sand of varying colours and a lot less natural shade options so bring your own!

The south coastline is dominated by finegrained white sandy inlets and bays often with pine forest fringed cliffs and surroundings - as they are formed from river valleys carved from softer limestone plateaus. Very Carribean like. More natural shade.

Beach Taxis

Several small friendly companies offer Water Taxis to remote beaches with the benefit of seeing the beautiful coastline on the trip Water Taxi Guide
