Pristine swaths of beaches between cliffs are Minorca's main contribution to beachy paradise. But which to choose?

Minorca's Castaway Coves

Far from the madding crowd

When it comes to sun/sand/surf, on Minorca it's mostly about the little coves - especially along the south coast - where you can enjoy a slice of barefoot paradise for a bit, far from the madding crowd. Finding the "perfect" one is well nigh impossible, given that there are dozens that are so vastly appealing, but it's fun to try, and here are a couple of suggestions to get you started. Cala Trebalúger on the east coast is a little bit of heaven at the end of a stream reaching the sea between a pair of steep cliffs; admittedly it's not the easiest to get to, but that of course is what gives it that lovely castaway feel! Or check out the south coast's Mitjana and Mitjaneta, a pair of pristine coves right near an old marés stone quarry along the road to Cala Galdana.
