Menorca is much more than the typical postcard of its turquoise blue waters, since for example, right in the west of the island, you can find a collection of beaches considered the best in the world.

In addition, there are sections of all distances. You can start from wherever you want and are adapted for all audiences with some excursions that can end at the beach. Some of the coves that you cannot miss without fail are:
- Cala Macarella and Macarelleta: Located in the Ciutadella municipality, they are chosen as the virgin beaches par excellence for their fine white sand, surrounded by pine trees on the beach. People talk wonders about this place so you cannot miss it.
- Cala Turqueta: According to what they say, their name is due not only to their turquoise waters, but also to the relationship they make with the Turkish landing. You cannot miss it as it is one of the most famous coves of the Balearic Islands.
- Son Saura: it is one of the largest beaches in Menorca, so much so that it is divided into two halves. It has fine sand, crystal clear waters and is shallow, so it is specially recommended if you want to go with children.
