Cala Macarella is one of the best-known coves in Menorca. The turquoise colour of the sea and the boats' shadows make this beach look like a postcard of the Balearic Islands.
Cala Macarella is very close to Cala Macarelleta and is probably one of the most famous beaches on the island for locals and visitors. Cliffs and nature surround this turquoise water beach.
May, June and September are the recommended months to visit it. You will avoid crowds of people and therefore enjoy one of the best beaches in Menorca.
In past years, the popular Macarella had two parking lots (one close to the beach and the other 900 meters away).
To avoid the overcrowding of the shore, the only possibility to arrive at the spot now is the public bus. You can take it from May to September from Ciutadella; it takes 25 minutes.
Renting a bicycle is another option you can consider. The journey through Sant Joan de Missa is pleasant. Remember to take some water with you!
However, the best option to reach Cala Macarella is by boat. From our website, we recommend you to take a boat from Cala Galdana or Ciutadella. It's a fantastic experience!
All options have their advantages and disadvantages. With the restriction of car access, the beach of Cala Macarella tends not to fill up so quickly. Nonetheless, it's interesting to go early in the morning anyway.
This beach in Menorca is more attractive for adults and couples. Despite this, have lifeguards; You can relax with your children as well.
Cafe Susy is a cafeteria and restaurant on the shore of Macarella. It is the only building on the beach.
Typical Menorcan meals, ice-creams and tapas are on the menu. We recommend going on time to get a table in the summer months. However, you can also take prepared food and eat on the beach.
