How to get

From Ciudadela, take the main road until you reach the town of Es Mercadal. From there, take the road towards 'Playas del Norte'. Following this road, further on you will come across the sign: 'Playa de Cavalleria', continue in this direction to go towards the lighthouse. You will see the access to the beach car park on your left. If you are coming from Maó you can either take the main road to Es Mercadal, or the road to Fornells.

The last one should close the gate:
In Menorca it is customary and a sign of acknowledgement of how to walk in the countryside by leave gates as you find them, whether they are open or closed. Our farmers know the needs of their livestock, and it is just as important that their animals can move around as it is that they do not escape.
