Cala Pilar beach

Cala Pilar is a great place for those who want to relax away from the civilization. The beauty of this place won't leave anyone disappointed.

Beach description

Cala Pilar Beach doesn't see a lot of tourists, even during high season that lasts from April to October on Menorca. And the reason is simple: to get to the coastline covered in golden sand you'll need to take a tourist pathway that is about 1,8 km long.

When walking to this deserted beach, don't forget to wear comfortable shoes, as the walk from the closest parking lot to the coast will take about 40 minutes.

The beach is known for being tiny. The coastline is just 250 m long and 40 m wide. The territory is surrounded by two hills that form the bay with the cleanest water. Thanks to the water's transparency, the sea bottom is visible, which means that the risk of injuries due to the rock shards is minimal.

The sea isn't too calm here, as the strong winds may create quite high waves, so families with children rarely come here. The beach does attract surfers and divers though.

When is it better to go

The beach season on the coast of Spain falls on the period from May to October. The water and air temperature reaches the most comfortable levels, thereby guaranteeing tourists a perfect vacation.

Due to the landscape and the long distance from municipalities the infrastructure here is quite poor. When coming to this deserted coast, don't forget to bring an umbrella and some food with you, especially if you intend to spend the whole day here.

If you're planning to visit this beach, it's recommended to stay in one of the following hotels in Ciutadella:

But be ready to use public transport or drive yourself a lot every day, and then make a long walk from the parking lot to the beach.
