 Cala Mica, another very unknown North Star!


Cala Mica is a relatively small, virgin beach, which is right next to the Cavalleria beaches (Playa de Cavalleria and Playa d'en Ferragut, we will talk about them in the next blog). Cala Mica, stands out for its particular shape of a shell, with thick sand and some pebbles, is a beach that is not very frequented but that will not leave you indifferent. If you are looking for a quiet place to enjoy the calm of very clean and crystalline waters and the possibility of snorkelling... Cala Mica, which is located within the Marine Reserve in the north of Minorca, is a good option.

It is a beach, like so many in Minorca, with no lifeguard or services, and it is an ideal place to get to know the most unknown Minorca. This cove is open to all the northern winds, Mestral, Tramuntana and Gregal, so these days it is better not to go as it is very exposed and not comfortable.


As you can get to Cala Mica; belonging to the municipality of Mercadal, it can only be reached on foot or by bicycle along the Camí de Cavalls. If you go by car, the only option is to park in the Cavalleria beach car park, and from there, walk. This is a small excursion without any difficulty and is approximately 1.5 km and 10/15 minutes from the end of Cavalleria beaches.

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.
