Cala Mica

Cala Mica is situated at 11 kilometres from es Mercadal (located in front of the natural port with the same name, which continues for four kilometres toward the interior, popular for the lobster fishers and the stew), situated between Cala Ferragut and Punta des Marès, as well as between the beaches of Cavalleria and Binimel.là.

This quiet beach is the result of a shell-shaped sea inlet, open to the winds from the north.
This beach can only be reached on foot from Cavalleria, where you can park your private car in the surroundings. The accessibility by car is easy until Cavalleria following the signs and the deviations. From here you have to walk on a trail along the steep coast, with no vegetation and quite high rocks around, until Cala Mica.

These characteristics explain that the beach is not very crowded by local visitors and tourists. This coastal corner is very frequented by the fishers.

It is located near Cap de Cavalleria, a headland which is also the northernmost place of Menorca. This coast rises 80 metres above the sea level, it has a lighthouse on the top and from this rocky coast you can see Illot des Pas and Illa des Porros, quite flat, with a maximum height of 7,5 metres, which is separated by a strait called Es Pas.
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.

Municipality information Es Mercadal

The municipality of es Mercadal is situated in the geographic centre of Menorca, it grew next to the mount Toro (358 metres high, it is the highest mountain of the island). On the summit there is a defence tower (1558) and Santuari de la Verge del Toro (1670), patron saint of Menorca.

Once Menorca was conquered to the Moors (the footprint can be seen in the names of the rural fincas that begin with bini or al), by the Christian king Alfons III d'Aragó in 1287, some inhabitants from Girona established next to the mount Toro, raising a chapel for the patron saint of their town, Sant Narcís. King Jaume II established in 1301 the celebration of three menorcan markets around this parish.

The agricultural and farming sectors lead the municipal economy, guaranteeing the production of cheese with denomination of origin, the traditions and the preservation of this particular interior landscape of this island: green in the winter, stone walls and wooden barriers. There is also still a little industry of albarcas, the typical sandals of the farmers that are nowadays very popular for their design and simplicity.

The cultural variety includes the gastronomy, and especially the handcraft pastries (amargos, carquinyolis and guirlache), as well as Església de Sant Martín (Renaissance), the quiet streets with white houses (traditional architecture), the bridges over the torrent and the public water reservoir, still in use, built by the English governor Richard Kane.
The municipality has 17 beaches.
