Beaches and coves of Menorca
Menorca has many paradisiacal beaches and coves, which is why the choice for this article has been difficult. However, from Insotel Hotel Group, we discover small charming places where you can enjoy the wonderful beaches of Menorca.
It is one of the most beautiful beaches of Menorca which landscape makes it different from the others. Its chain of islets makes it look like a natural pool, but the most characteristic it’s in its colours. The contrast between its crystal clear waters and reddish sand made Mike Oldfield himself fell in love with it, and turn the image into the cover of two of his records.
It is a small cove located north of Menorca, it has a wingspan of about 80 meters long and about 50 wide. It is surrounded by a lot of nature, cliffs with rocks of curious shapes that give this cove an attractive landscape without equal.
On its sides it has rocky bottoms with a large amount of marine fauna and a sandy area where you can see a variety of fish, which makes it a perfect place to dive or snorkel.

If you go through this cove we recommend you visit the “Cova d’en Xoroi”. Legend has it that a man came from the sea and used it as a refuge. Until one day, a young girl from a village near to the cave, whom was promise in marriage to another man, disappeared mysteriously.
After a few years, a winter after a heavy snowfall, traces appeared that led directly to the cave. Curious men followed these tracks and upon entering the cave discovered the missing girl with the shipwrecked Xoroi and their three children.
Xoroi, anguished, jumped into the sea and behind him was his firstborn son. When he died so suddenly, the mystery of his life went with him.
