Platja des Tancats is situated at 11 kilometres from Ciutadella, located between Platja des Bot and Punta ses Fontanelles. The beaches of es Bot and es Tancats belong to Cala Algaiarens. This coastal area belongs to the impressive mountainous landscape of la Vall (3125 hectares), including la Falconera (207 metres high hill), thick pine trees, scrubland, agricultural land, lakes, system of dunes, spectacular cliffs and virgin beaches. This coastal stretch and the interior of Tramuntana de Menorca belongs to the Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves by the European Union and Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès by the Parlament de les Illes Balears. This isolated sea inlet is rectangular, quite big, it has vegetation in the surroundings, the beach is sandy and it is exposed to the winds from the northeast-north-northwest, a gentle breeze, calm water, a normal slope and it is very crowded by local visitors. The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are excellent, if you avoid the dangerous rocks located in front of the beach. This bay is sheltered from the winds from the second and third quadrants and it is deep enough to anchor. Nevertheless you are recommended to only navigate along the north coast of Menorca if the sea is calm because it is very difficult to find a shelter from the strong wind in this area. The accessibility by car is easy following the signs and the deviations. You will have to pay to leave your private car 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.
