Cala Tamarells del Norte and del Sur, some of the little unknown coves of eastern Menorca!
Continuing along the northeast coast of Menorca, along the Camí de Cavalls in the direction of Mahón, we come across a bay with a series of small coves, which are largely unknown and beautiful spots that, if you have the chance, are well worth a visit.
Isolated from civilisation, without any services or access by any vehicle (unauthorised), we find this small bay with 3 small coves of which we highlight Cala Tamarells del Norte and Cala Tamarells del Sur, coves that maintain their virgin character and that, if anyone has permission to change them, this is the mild and windy climate of this fantastic island of Menorca. These coves are not very crowded, especially in the hot months, and we recommend that you bring water, something to protect you from the sun and the desire to walk, although they are not very far away.
It is certainly worth it, parking in es Grau, there is an approximate distance of almost 3 km, except for a little hard climb, it is a path that does not have much difficulty. This small bay is located between Punta de Sa Pastera and Es Colomar (old watchtower). In these coves you can enjoy crystal clear waters, the tranquillity of accessing these small coves with few people and if you like snorkelling you will be able to observe the rocky seabed of the whole area. Although these coves have fine golden sand, sometimes you can find some seaweed brought by the winter storms.
These coves are protected from almost all winds, they are only affected by winds from the east and northeast, and form part of the ANEI (Natural Area of Special Interest) of the Albufera des Grau. A good option is to rent a kayak in es Grau and reach this beautiful place by sailing along the coast and under the protection of the island of Colom. This area is also rich in low vegetation, although there are some small pine woods along the way, and there is also an abundance of local fauna. As an orientation to get to this beautiful place, you can recognise it by an old watchtower located right there, on a rocky mound overlooking the sea (Es Colomar).

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.
