Cala Galdana is the completest beach on the island. It offers full possibilities of leisure and accommodation. The sand is narrow also the turquoise water makes it one of the essentials in Menorca.

Cala Galdana, one famous beach in Menorca

Probably, it's one of the most known and familiar beaches on the island. It's inside the homonym town, seven kilometres far away from Ferreries.

It has a lot of hotels and buildings from the touristic boom in the 70s. So the hotels spoil a little bit this natural beach. However, it has pure blue water.

It's inside a bay, protected by big cliffs and ravines, with forests on the top of them. This fact made that cove covered from mostly all wind directions, except south (Migjorn).

The Beach

It measures 300 meters long and twenty meters in height. The sand is white and delicate, like Binigaus Beach and the rest of the coves.

The contrast of the landscape with the sea is fantastic. It's a perfect place to do a Photoshoot. It highlights a turquoise blue colour, typical of Menorca. The shadows of the boats are present if you go to the urbanization lookout.

It has a small promenade that goes through the shore. It also has a pine forest that will give you some shadow on sunny summer days.

Cala Galdana is a perfect area to stay!

Without a doubt, urbanization is one of the best places to stay during your holidays. It offers all kinds of villas and hotels at different prices, from luxury hotels with suites to cheap villas.

Cala Galdana Audax

If you are looking for a hotel with many services, this is a good choice. It's an adults' hotel with Spa, swimming pool and a delicious buffet restaurant. It has private parking and has a beach at 200 meters.

Melia Hotel

This hotel in Cala Galdana remains on the same beach shore. So probably is the best choice to enjoy the sea views from your room's terrace.

It has become one of the most popular hotels in Menorca, even though it's not in a total natural cove.

Rent a boat

We recommend it! One of the best things you can do is to explore Cala Galdana's surroundings. Many companies offer boat renting with cheap offers.

You can rent a boat which doesn't require a licence. However, you can also rent one bigger with its skipper in the same port. The location is between Audax Hotel and the bridge that goes to the beach.

You can also rent a kayak!

It's the cheapest option rather than renting a boat. The best point is that easy to drive, and you will be able to enter the most remote cliff corners.

The prices used to be per hour. It can be fantastic to explore the surroundings by kayak.

The surroundings have a lot of natural beaches and coves!

Cala Galdana is a mandatory stop to visit the best beaches in Menorca in the south.

If you go to the east, you can easily access Cala Mitjana and Cala Mitjaneta. Using the Camí de Cavalls path, you have parking on the road and a 10 minutes walk to the beaches.

If you decide to go to the West, you will find Cala Macarella and Cala Macarelleta, two fabulous beaches. However, they are pretty far away, and you will have to walk for almost an hour. If you want to only go to these beaches, consider going there from Ciutadella.
