Cala Escorxada
Es Migjorn Gran
Type of beach sand
Cala Escorxada

Cala Escorxada is situated at eight kilometres from es Migjorn Gran, located between Punta de Sant Antoni and de s'Avi. It belongs to the Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès which goes from Cala Mitjana to Binigaus.

This coastal stretch belongs to the municipality of es Migjorn Gran and has cliffs that rise up to 40 metres above the sea level, with sea inlets that are the origin of isolated, virgin and beautiful coves.

This beach is the result of a u-shaped sea inlet and the mouth of Torrent de sa Torre, and it is characterized by the not very big size, it has quite high rocks on the sides, covered by a thick pine wood that reaches the coastline. It has fine-grained white sand and is exposed to the winds from the southeast-south-southwest, it has a gentle breeze, quiet crystal clear water, and it is not very crowded by local visitors and tourists.

The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are excellent, if the wind is not blowing from the south, because it makes the swell grow due to the fact that the bay is very open.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs until Cala Mitjana. From here you will have to walk for 40 minutes to reach Cala Trebalúger. Then you have to walk another 40 minutes until you reach Cala Fustam. After 10 more minutes on the same track you will find the adjacent Cala Escorxada. Getting there on the seaway is also usual.

Municipality information Es Migjorn Gran

The municipality of es Migjorn Gran occupies the centre and southern area of Menorca (115 metres above the sea level). The word “migjorn” of its name indicates the cardinal point (“south” or “noon”), although it is also a reference to several menorcan territories, located around the village of Sant Climent (in the south of Ciutadella), where the water flows into the sea on the south coast.

This village was created in the second half of the 18th century around the church of Sant Cristòfol (1769-1775), located in the interior of the rural finca of Binicodrellet. This village was officially called like the chapel until 1988. The following year it became independent from the municipality of es Mercadal, and was then called es Migjorn Gran.

For all this time, this village has preserved the traditional taste of Menorca, and it has also still its old beauty. It is very quiet and calm, as you can feel when walking through the corners of the narrow streets, or looking at the beautiful houses, not more than two floors high.

Es Migjorn Gran is the richest territory of the Balearic Island in megalithic monuments, with a density of five prehistoric vestiges per square kilometre. Amongst the most important sites there is Cova des Coloms (of enormous size), sala hipóstila de Binigaus and the enormous talaiot of Sant Agustí Vell.

Joan Riudavets Moll (1889-2004) was born and died in this municipality. This migjorner was the most longeve person in the world in 2003, after his 114th birthday.
The municipality has 7 beaches.
