La Vall beach (Ciutadella)

Knowing Menorca through its beaches is one of the best experiences you can enjoy on the island. Near Ciutadella is La Vall beach, one of the best-known shores of the island. It's a small cove with crystal clear waters. We are going to show you everything you need to know about La Vall in Menorca.

How looks la Vall beach?

La Vall beach is a spot of fine white sand with pristine water, one of the cleanest in Menorca. It has two beaches, La Vall, with about 4,500 square meters of surface, and Es Bot, a little larger with nearly 6,000 square meters in total.

It is necessary to pass through a rocky area to move between them, although you can also leave the beach and enter the other from the inside. It is a beach where it is common to find Posidonia algae, which do not bother the swimmer and indicates the excellent state of conservation of the underwater ecosystem in the area.

It is one of the best-known coves in Menorca. However, visually it is not as attractive a priori as other coves in the south of Menorca.

Nevertheless, an exciting option when there are winds from the south and the beaches in the south have the roughest waters. It is important to note that in La Vall, it is common to find bathers practising nudism, although it is more frequent the further you walk to the right of the beach.

The first parking lot is about 500 meters from the beach access, and the other parking is about 300 meters away. It means walking between 5 and 10 minutes to reach the beach.

    Normally, there are no parking problems because it is difficult for the two parking to be complete. However, it is essential to drive on the access road to the parking lot carefully and at a low speed because cyclists frequently come across it.
