Cala Escorxada, one of our smallest and wildest coves!

Today, we are going to tell you about one of the smallest and wildest coves in the south of the island and one of the most difficult to access. A beautiful cove in the south of Menorca, a beautiful corner that is worth a visit as soon as you can.

A small cove of fine, white sand, with a clean, turquoise sea, so characteristic of the south of Menorca, its only "reasonable" access route is from Binigaus and the Santo Tomás car park. It takes more than an hour's walk along the Camí de Cavalls. If we want to access it from the other side (Cala Mitjana car park), we will need more than 2 hours.

Popularly known as "Sa platja des Duc", it is a beautiful cove without any kind of services, not recommended for hot and windy days, as the access can be exhausting. It is worth getting there by boat as the surroundings are incredible.

A shallow beach with extremely clean and transparent waters, it is an ideal beach to enjoy as a couple. It is part of an ANEI (Natural Area of Special Interest) that goes from Cala Mitjana Binigaus. The whole of this ANEI is a paradisiacal environment.

To get to this cove, you have to go the same way as if you were going to Binigaus, as I indicated in the previous blog. We have to go towards Es Migjorn Gran and from there follow the signs to Sant Tomàs, without entering the urbanization, on our arrival we find on the right the access to the car park and in front of the car park just above the beach of Sant Adeodato we find the famous restaurant "Es Brucs", highly recommended as a beach bar. From here take the camí de cavalls to the right (facing the sea or west).

If you come to Ca s'Arader, we will be happy to show you how to get to this beautiful cove with crystal clear waters!

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.
