Cala Llucalari
Alaior
Cala Llucalari

Cala Llucalcari is situated at eight kilometres from Alaior (“the menorquin Montpellier”), located between Cap de ses Penyes and Cova de sa Calc.

This beach is the result of the confluence of a sea inlet and the mouth of a torrent between canyons. This coastal corner is characterized by having a small size (50 metres long and 30 metres large), and a gravel and sand surface, a rare vegetation on the right side (bushes) and a thicker vegetation typical for wetland at the rear, as well as by being located between cliffs, the rocks on the left side are quite high, abrupt and steep.

The southern area of Menorca is cut by about forty canyons, some of them irrigated by torrents, with a contrasting landscape, as well as a rich flora and fauna. The summits are dry because of their sunny exposition, whereas the sides are dark and wet because they are more protected.

The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are not good because this coastal corner is not very safe. The accessibility by car is easy until the nearby beaches Platges de Son Bou. The private car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings. You can also reach this beach with the public transport in the summer season. From Son Bou you can reach Cala Llucalcari on foot after a short one kilometre walk.

These characteristics explain that the beach is not very crowded by local visitors and tourists.
When the beach has a lifeguard service, you must follow the lifeguards? instructions and the warnings on flags. A red flag indicates dangerous swimming conditions and means that swimming is not permitted. A yellow flag indicates that precaution must be taken, but that swimming is permitted. A green flag indicates that swimming is permitted. An orange flag is used to indicate that the lifeguard is absent. Act cautiously when no lifeguard is present or the service is not available and enjoy the beach without taking any unnecessary risks.

For health and safety reasons, the municipal ordinances ban pets on beaches.
