Cales Coves, Calescoves or Calacoves is situated at 10 kilometres from Alaior, located between morros de Ponent and de Llevant, as well as next to the villages Cala en Porter and Son Vitamina, and to the village Lloc Nou. A sinuous sea inlet has formed these two spectacular bays, which are isolated, virgin, quiet and quite small as well, one has an orientation toward northeast and the other one toward northwest. This coastal corner is characterized by being located between high and steep vertical cliffs, which were used by the first inhabitants of Menorca as necropolis (9th-7th century BC), as you can see in the 90 excavated coves in these rocks, which gave the name to this place. Another characteristic of this beach is the rocky surface and the low influx of visitors, because it is quite narrow and therefore uncomfortable. The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are excellent, and it is one of the best shelters in the summer for the boats that navigate around the south coast of Menorca, if there is no wind blowing from south-southwest. The ground is sandy in the centre and rocky on the sides, deep and clean, although there is not much place. If the navigator wants to anchor, he is recommended to do so in the north-eastern cove. The accessibility by car is easy following the signs and the deviations. The last part has to be done on a track in bad conditions. The private car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings. When the beach has a lifeguard service, you must follow the lifeguards' instructions and the warnings on flags. A red flag indicates dangerous swimming conditions and means that swimming is not permitted. A yellow flag indicates that precaution must be taken, but that swimming is permitted. A green flag indicates that swimming is permitted. An orange flag is used to indicate that the lifeguard is absent. Act cautiously when no lifeguard is present or the service is not available and enjoy the beach without taking any unnecessary risks. For health and safety reasons, the municipal ordinances ban pets on beaches.

    As for me - unforgettable place, just like from a dream or an adventure movie) And the view from the highest point is astonishing! I even didn't hesitate to come back to Cales Coves for the second time with my camera to take several pictures from the cliff. Don't forget your comfy shoes if you'd like to climb on the cliff and enjoy the panorama! :)
