Continuing along the Camí de Cavalls towards the east of Menorca and in the direction of Mahón, we find the cove of Sa Torreta or Cala Rambles, it is a totally virgin beach without any kind of service and difficult to access due to time and distance (like the last coves and beaches we are seeing). Isolated and empty all year round due to its difficult access, it is located about 3 km away from the Grau. It is not advisable to go there in the middle of summer if you are not well prepared with food, water and good shade!
Access to this cove is recommended via es Grau and following the Camí de Cavalls, but it can also be reached by sea. Located in the protected area (ANEI= Natural Area of Special Interest) of the natural park of s'Albufera des Grau, it is a cove oriented to the Northeast and therefore protected from all winds, except the Northeast and Levante. Generally with a lot of seaweed (Posidonia) mixed with its sand due to the storms, it is a beach where if you are a little scrupulous you might not feel like lying down to sunbathe or spend a day relaxing. It is also an anchorage area where, if you are attentive, you can enjoy swimming and snorkelling in these clean and transparent waters of Menorca!
Next to this cove, as you can see in the photo (photo of the area downloaded from the internet with Google Earth), there is an area of sandbanks where the depth is very shallow and allows you to walk through the water, something similar to what we will see later on at the beach des Grau. It is a peculiar place that from our point of view is worth a visit. On the other hand, if you like history, you can try to visit the Talayotic settlement of Sa Torreta (scheduled visits on Thursdays from 9:00 to 13:00, about 20 minutes inland (we don't recommend it in the middle of summer because of the heat).
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.
