Es Talaier has fabulous turquoise water!

Es Talaier is located just 11 kilometres from Ciutadella, and you can reach it by car. However, a better option is to do your hiking route along the Camí de Cavalls. The road leading to this cove is the same that goes to Cala en Turqueta; it is a 30-minute walk to the beach.

But, the best option is to arrive by Son Saura, a 15-minute walk with amazing views. Remember to bring enough water and food, as there are no services or bars. The parking lot is quite large, but it is better to go early, especially in July and August.

Where is this beach?

It's in the south of the island. Between Punta d'es Pinar and Punta de Na Bruna. A small bay protects the beach from all winds except those from the south. On the east, there is another small headland known as the Cau d'en Barra point.

The beach is relatively small and does not have a lot of sand. Settling on the rocks is not a bad idea if the coast is full of people. The stones used to pain, but you will indeed find a flatter area.

The sand is fine and very white!

It is typical on the beaches in the south of the island. Es Talaier has lovely sand, perfect for kids to play in it, building their sandcastles. However, it is usually a beach more frequented by adults and couples. It is because it is a remote cove!
