Cales des Sivinar de Mongofre, the best kept secret!
It is one of the best kept secrets of our island of Menorca, a beach with no access by land because it has to pass through a private estate (even if you could access it there is a long path and with the summer heat, not at all recommendable), without any kind of services, it has an exceptional sandy area with dunes. It is a beach of light golden beige sand, not very similar to the other beaches on the north coast, with a low presence of bathers because those who usually come only arrive by sea. Facing east-northeast it is a small bay where there is also a small sandy area just to the right, called s'Arenalet, and depending on the storms there is sometimes even a third sandy area (the whole group is popularly known as ses cales de Mongofre). Although the storms from the north manage to get in, the ones that affect it the most are the northeast and the east, which come right into the bay.
In my opinion it is the most beautiful beach in the north of Menorca without any doubt. If you have the chance to rent a boat in Fornells or Puerto Addaia, I recommend you to visit it, once there you will see a peculiar hut that belongs to the owners of the estate (as I have already commented in previous blogs, I ask for respect for the properties of individuals that we can find), it is a particular construction that the owners of the estate used for their personal enjoyment of the beach.
It is a perfect place to disconnect, because if you have come this far you can relax because you are in one of the most hidden corners of Menorca. There is nothing to stop you from enjoying a totally isolated and wild environment with a pine forest where you can sit in the shade. The waters are transparent and exceptionally clean. We recommend that if you go in a motorboat, you leave it at a certain distance from the beach because there are usually no buoys to mark the beach, as it is a matter of respect for the bathers and for the environment itself.
At hotel Ca s'Arader (www.casarader.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) we would love to tell you about this enigmatic place, where you will lose track of time and forget about everyday problems! Contact us, it will be a pleasure to help 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.
