Cavalleria is situated at nine kilometres from es Mercadal, located between Punta des Vernís and de Ferragut. This coastal stretch is sheltered by the impressive Cap de Cavalleria (the northernmost cape of Menorca, with cliffs that rise 80 metres above the sea level, with spectacular panoramic views; you can reach it from the beach walking along a trail). It belongs to Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès de Cavalleria. This sea inlet is characterized by being the origin of two virgin coves with fine-grained golden sand, it has the shape of a shell, it is quite big, with a system of dunes and a rare fixing vegetation at the rear, gentle slope, an orientation toward north, gentle breeze, the swell is moderate, and there is an area for mud baths on the right side; it is surrounded by medium-high cliffs and it is frequented by small boats. Nudism is usual. The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are not safe. Next to Punta des Vernís there is a reef, known as s'Escull d'en Vernís, and the strait is very dangerous. The best shelters are Port de Sanitja or Cala Torta. The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The last stretch is in bad conditions. The private car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings. These characteristics explain that the beach is not very crowded by local visitors and tourists.

    Scendendo lungo il percorso ci si trova di fronte ad un bivio: A destra, una piccola spiaggia selvaggia A sinistra, una spiaggia molto più grande facilmente raggiungibile attraverso un percorso in legno. Fra le due indubbiamente quella che merita di più è quella a destra: poco affollata e con un mare cristallino. Fantastici fanghi, in entrambe le spiagge!!

    Playa bastante grande, aguas limpias, hay que llevar sombrilla pues las sombras que hay son de las rocas y pocas, para mí el problema es que dejan a los turistas de barco en esta playa al menos dos horas y se inunda todo ayer llegaron dos a la vez y fue horrible, es por eso que solo doy 3 estrellas
