Cala en Porter

The extensive sandy area of this cove, patterned with parasols and rows of hammocks during the peak season, is a golden strip separating the sea and the wetlands where the ravine ends. It was one of the very first coves to be developed for tourism. Some natural caves in the cliff were fitted out for a discotheque, Cova d'en Xoroi, whose name comes from a beautiful but tragic legend from the area. A spectacular spot with spectacular views, it can also be visited during the day.

mesquida

Cala Mesquida

This 300 m long and 50 m wide sandy beach is the first one to be found when leaving Maó in a northerly direction. On arriving, the road passes between cottages that the local people began building as summer homes and which has become a picturesque centre. The beach is sandy and is framed by a rocky outcrop that rises to 68m above sea level, the Pa Gros, and an imposing defence tower built by the British at the end of the 18th century, due, no doubt, to the previous landing of French troops in 1871, the prologue to their occupation of the island. Behind this outcrop appears a second cove, less frequented because there is not much beach, called Sa Raconada Vella.

Es Canutells

Access by way of a small set of steps leads us to this beach of pale grey-coloured sand. Of 53 metres long and 90 wide, it is well protected from open sea and high winds.
Services: Water Sports, Bars, Sun loungers, Restaurants.
persili tortuga

Presili y Tortuga

There are two beaches that are 180 m long and 30 m wide; face east, Presili and Tortuga, included in the same area protected by the S'Albufera Natural Park and highly appreciated by those looking for corners "uncontaminated" by tourist installations. Behind the second beach there are dunes and some marshland. Further on from Tortuga, towards the south and passing the outcrop that separates them, you can reach the beautiful and little known cove of Morella Nou.

Es Grau

A fabulous 600 m long and 40 m wide beach, very shallow for the first metres on entering the sea, protected by the cottages of what was a small fishing village that has evolved with time into a lively second-home holiday resort. A boat ride from here will take you to the nearby Illa d'en Colom. A launch moors on the further away harbour for those wishing to visit the islet, which has two charming little beaches and is the refuge for an indigenous subspecies of lizard. The return trips are continuous from the morning until twilight from May onwards normally until the end of the summer. There are other beaches in the same area of Es Grau, interesting due to their isolation but very small, called Es Tamarells and Sa Torreta, accessible by continuing northwards along the coastal pathway.
