Cales Morts, a place whose name I prefer not to remember!
A cove with a lot of pedestrian traffic and few visitors for bathing, it is another cove without any kind of services, an obligatory step towards the bay of Pregonda although few people stop here to see and enjoy its spectacularly transparent waters. A cove with little sand and mostly pebbles, it is located between Binimel.la and Pregonda Bay. This cove is very easily accessible from the Binimel.la car park and takes approximately 25 minutes to reach. It is an ideal place for snorkelling because its seabed is made of rocks and pebbles, which also forms part of the marine reserve of the north of Menorca.
The "sculptures-mountains" made of stones that are raised by walkers throughout the area of this cove also attract a lot of attention. It is like a way of giving life and testimony to this space that is very similar geologically to its neighbours, formed by clay soil. It is a cove at the expense of all the north winds, it receives the waves from the northeast as well as from the north and northwest. A corner where, during the winter, sometimes some debris can accumulate that is thrown into the sea by "bad" sailors (not at all respectful of the environment) from their boats, perhaps this has to do with its bad name! (Cales Morts – Dead Cove). Even so, its waters are spectacularly transparent.
If you decide to get to know Minorca, at Ca s'Arader - www.casarader.com - without realising it, we will advise you to pass through this almost perfect shell-shaped cove.

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.
