If you are looking for peace, this beach is for you. Very little known by tourism and with landscapes and an ideal sea for diving. Easy to get to and close from many other amazing beaches in the north.
Cala Rotja is a reduced beach away from the hustle and bustle of its older sister, Cavallería beach. For this reason, it is an excellent option if you check for a restful place to spend the day on the north coast of Menorca.
Its name is given by the reddish tone of its orography, formed by red clay stones. It is important not to get loam on your skin, something very touristy in Menorca, as it degrades the ground and is not scientifically proven to be positive for healthiness.
Cala Roja is a virgin shore without any service for bathers. It also doesn't have lifeguards, so don't forget to bring food and drinks (it's boiling in summer).
As you will see in the photos, it has a spectacular and shallow seabed. The sandbanks and Posidonia algae combines with large areas of rocks and stones. Undoubtedly, a privileged location to practice snorkelling because Cala Rotja is in the Marine Reserve of northern Menorca.
There are a lot of fish, and it will not be difficult for you to see challenging species, such as huge groups of barracudas or some Rays. Don't lose sight of some diving goggles!
If you have already been to Cala Cavallería, you will have been a few meters from this beach, and perhaps you have not even noticed that it was there: It's behind a mound.
Instead of running down the stairs of the main beach, just before you must catch the deviation to the right, you will be on the shore in a matter of 5 minutes.
Remember that to get to the spot; you should take the Tramuntana path, which fires up at the Fornells roundabout, where the ME-7 and ME-15 roads join. Once there, go straight until you turn onto the path that leads to Cavallería beach.
