In these beaches we usually find water activities to do during a long day at the beach, as they are usually the rent of ayaks, boats with pedals and even inflatable structures where the fun is assured.
The nMenorca north is more rugged due to the erosion caused by the tramontana wind on the coast. The Menorca north coast beaches show a thicker and darker sand. Its vegetation is not as high as in the south, due to the strong winds that hit this part of the coast. If we want to discover authentic treasures without urbanizing, we can visit Cala Pregonda, Cala Algaiarens, Cala Pilar, Binimel·la, Cavalleria or Cala Morella. In the north coast there are not as many beaches with services as in the south, being less touristy.
