Binimel.la beach, little valued but a it must be visited!
Another of the beaches in the Northern Marine Reserve of Menorca. This beach belongs to the municipality of Mercadal and has reddish and very thick sand. The S'Alairó torrent reaches the beach in winter, where we can find some birds such as several species of ducks, coots and even some herons. Binimel-là is not usually excessively full, except on the busiest days of summer, is the mandatory parking to go to Cala Pregonda, this fact makes it possible to enjoy large areas of sand without many people. Another advantage of this beach is that it does not usually have boats anchored and is an ideal beach for snorkelling because of its rocky bottoms.
With its own parking and restaurant, this virgin beach has some services that make it a very comfortable beach because it is not necessary to carry food or walk a lot to get there. If you are looking for more tranquillity than you can find in Binimel.la, walking a little on the right bank (looking at the sea), you will find some small coves where with a little luck you will be able to enjoy privacy.
To get to Binimel.la, don't get lost, take the road towards Fornells until you reach an unmistakable roundabout where you can see three metal human silhouettes joined together. From this roundabout take the road towards Faro de Cavalleria (be careful because it is a narrow road where just two cars pass), and on this road you will find the directions to Binimel.la.
As always we recommend you to come to Ca s'Arader - www.casarader.com - and we will make sure you can find this wonderful corner of our northern coast. You will not be disappointed!

Ca s’Arader is named after Menorca’s artisan carpenters that used the wood from the indigenous wild olive tree to make all kinds of farming tools. In the olden days it was an essential role for the islands economy that was passed on from fathers to sons. Today, the few artisan carpenters or araders that are left, mostly make gates, tables, benches or stalls amongst other items.
