Cala Morell is situated on the north coast of the island and is just 7km away from Ciutadella. This gorgeous cove is famous for its rocky blue coastline and has a reputation of being one of the best coves for diving and snorkelling in Menorca due to its underwater caves and less crowded beach.
This little bay is sheltered by cliffs on either side and is surrounded by typical whitewashed houses. It has a small area of coarse sand and several smooth rock platforms where you can enjoy the sun. For this reason, it is one of the most popular bays for snorkelling due to its shallow calm waters and many different species of sea life. The shape of this bay is very unique, it looks backwards ´ L´ therefore it is shielded from the southern and easterly winds.
Before reaching the sea, you will find the Necropolis of Cala Morell, in a small gully populated by pines and wild olive trees, a prehistoric cemetery made up of 14 burial caves hewn from the bare rock, which is worth visiting. The famous hiking trail “Cami de Cavalls” runs through Cala Morell which is one of the most popular walking routes on Menorca.
Since the village has very few local amenities; a restaurant and two bars, a hired car would be advised since there are no shops or supermarkets. The main town of Ciutadella is very close by where you can enjoy the shops, the local market or a variety of bars and restaurants and where all the main supermarkets are located.
The quietness and beauty of this rocky cove are the two main attractions to this area. It is a popular retreat for those seeking absolute serenity and relaxation making this one of the most exclusive areas on the island.
