La Cala d'es pou d'en Caldes, a grey corner full of light!
Following the order of moving to the right looking north, after the Calas de Mongofra, we find the Cala d'es Pou d'en Caldés, its name refers to a well at the entrance to the cove. The well, which is in good condition, is right next to a typical Menorcan house. There is a small stream that flows into this cove, which has hardly any sand. A natural cove of pebbles and grey rocks, very little frequented, lacking any kind of services.
It is an ideal place for those looking for a quiet spot to relax and snorkel. This cove is affected by all the winds from the north quadrant and is not recommended on stormy days (before going, it is important to check the weather forecast) and above all it is not recommended for sailors as it is an area with many rocks, both to the right and to the left, and very exposed to all winds. If you are sailing, it is advisable to stay out of the small bay that forms this cove.
To get to this cove, (bearing in mind that since 2018 the Favaritx lighthouse is no longer accessible by car) you can only get there by bus from Mahón and get off at a bus stop that goes to Cala Tortuga. The cove is approximately a 30-minute walk along Camí de Cavalls.
At Ca s'Arader, we would love to recommend you how to get to this corner where you can travel back in time and see the typical Menorcan house in a totally unspoilt cove by the sea.

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.
