The beaches in Minorque are incredible and it’s the main attraction of the island, with its incredible crystal and turquoise water. Among its 75 beaches, we can find all kind of beaches, from sandy to rocky beaches, with plenty of services to virgin beaches, …
Because of the geography and the natural conditions of the island, there is a big difference between the south and the north coast. On the south we will find quiet beaches with white sand and extensive vegetation. On the north coast the beaches are wilder, located in bays or sheltered areas because of Tramontana winds. The beaches have less vegetation

We are going to highlight the top 5 beaches in Minorque, the most beautiful and singular beaches in the island. Don’t miss the opportunity to discover Minorque.
Cala Turqueta it’s probably the most famous beach. It’s known for its beautiful turquoise water and white sand. The beach is hidden between pines, but it’s easily accessible by foot (10 minutes walk). If you want to get a place in the sand you must go early.

Cala en Porter is an awesome beach surrounded by cliffs, it’s known for its incredible blue sea and very fine sand. The beach also has restaurants, showers,… and many facilities. Cala en Porter is one of the cleanest and quiet beaches in Minorque, undoubtedly the best beach to go with kids. It’s located close to the Cova d’en Xoroi, the prefect place for a drink.
Cala Pilar is a red virgin beach, on the north of the island. We get there after an uncomfortable walk (one hour). Before coming to Cala Pilar check the weather conditions, because sometimes the waves are very strong and it’s not possible to swim. Cala Pilar is a beautiful marine reserve with an amazing underwater life, so we recommend you to do snorkel.
Cala Pregonda, also in the north of the island is recommended by the inhabitants of Minorque. It’s a singular beach, different from other beaches on the island.
