Cala Mesquida

A lovely unspoiled cove with plenty of new parking areas, close to the beach. This beach is popular with the locals on a weekend, but is less busy throughout the week. This is probably the closest beach to Mahon by road, its about a 7 minute drive.

Cala Macarella

An extremely picturesque pine-fringed cove. Approachable by car from the outer ring-road at Ciutadella, or by foot from Cala Galdana . Beach bar and sun beds, etc, for hire. Taking a 5 minute walk around the cliff to Macarelleta is well worth it. Don’t take anything with you then swim back.
