Located on the north coast of Menorca, just 4 km from the city of Mahón and 7 km from Capdepera, Cala Mesquida was declared in 1991 Natural Area of Special Interest in the Balearic Islands.
You’ll fall in love with its beautiful tongue of fine sand 300m long, lapped by clear turquoise waters. The cove is framed in a natural environment of great beauty, also it has a small hill called Es Pa of about 68m high at whose right margin inhabits one of the largest colonies of gulls and cormorants on the islands. We also find a magnificent defense tower built by the British Empire.
It is a very popular beach and has a very friendly atmosphere due to its calm and shallow waters. It has some rocky bottom areas that make it ideal for diving and snorkeling. Ships cannot anchor here near the coast, which makes it perfect for those who enjoy swimming out to sea.
Cala Mesquida features a nice restaurant called Cala Mesquida as well, where you can drink refreshments or taste typical dishes of the island.
There is a car park about 300m from the beach. Just before the beach in urbanización Sa Mesquida, there is the famous Cap Roig restaurant, more than 30 years old. This restaurant is famous for its delicious Minorcan dishes and has exceptional views to Cala Mesquida.
