Es Pa Gros is a lovely hill on the beach of Sa Mesquida. If you visit the beach, do not hesitate to climb to its top, there is a sensational panoramic view of the beach and its town.
Sa Mesquida Beach has a small hill called Es Pa Gros; from there, you have a remarkable landscape of the village and the beach.
We recommend climbing until the top, because it's just 50 meters of altitude, and the panoramic views of the North of Menorca, also with turquoise waters, are enviable. You will go up quickly in less than 5 minutes.
Do not climb barefoot either with flip flops to avoid falling. There's a small marked road that you can access from a wooden walkway that crosses a tiny damp area. Also, it takes you to the beach behind Es Pa Gros, based on small flat stones.
Sa Mesquida is a summer beach for many of the residents of Mahón. Its calm atmosphere and its nature make it a mandatory stop in Menorca.
Sharks are present in Menorca and throughout the Mediterranean Sea. However, the overfishing of the last decades has diminished sharks sightings. Nevertheless, every year there is usually an appearance of a blue shark, normally dying on the shore.
