Cala Presili, always under surveillance and within sight of the Favaritx lighthouse!
Cala Presili, also known as Capifort beach, is located between the Favaritx lighthouse and Punta de Presili. An area of great wealth in flora and fauna, it is on the limits of the Natural Area of Special Interest of the natural park of s'Albufera des Grau. It is a beach without any kind of service and it is important not to leave any waste and to take advantage of the containers to deposit our rubbish when we find them. This last comment is due to the fact that this last weekend we have been able to see (unfortunately) rubbish left by people who are not very aware of this.
The first beach in the east of Menorca from the Favaritx lighthouse, at the mercy of the Levante and Gregal (north-easterly) winds, it is a beautiful sandy area whose sides are geologically very interesting and its vegetation, although very austere (low vegetation and without trees - the north winds (Tramontana and Gregal have a lot to do with it) is very hard vegetation with an important fauna that inhabits the area. Thanks to its location on the edge of the Albufera des Grau and the Morella ponds, which we will talk about in the next blog when we talk about Cala Tortuga.
The sandy seabed makes this beach an ideal place for anchoring boats in good weather (always bear in mind the easterly and xaloc (south-easterly) winds, which are quite frequent in summer). It is also an ideal area for snorkelling, especially on the small headlands that protrude from the sides of the beach.
Road access is easy at the beginning of summer because, following the road signs and detours, private vehicles can be parked free of charge in the surrounding area. The last stretch has to be done on foot, as it belongs to the natural park of S'Albufera des Grau, and vehicle access is limited. In summer (June, July and August) the access is closed and can only be reached by bus from Mahón.
A beautiful place to spend a nice day at the beach, at Ca s'Arader, www.casarader.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, it will be a pleasure to explain you how to get to this beautiful place. We are waiting for you!
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.
