Ciutadella – La Vall d’Algaiarens
- Start off from a roundabout at the entrance to the city with a magnificent sculpture of a horse. Go east along the Ciutadella to Maó road/ Me-1.
- At the first roundabout you see, next to a sports centre, take the 2nd exit, continuing along the Ciutadella to Maó road/ Me-1.
- A few metres on you’ll see another roundabout next to the Fire Station where you take the 2nd exit, again continuing along the Ciutadella to Maó road/Me-1.
- Repeat the process at the next roundabout, taking the 2nd exit and continuing along the Ciutadella to Maó road/Me-2.
- Approximately some 400 m further on you come to another roundabout. This time, take the 3rd exit and continue for approximately 900 m until you reach a new roundabout.
- At this roundabout, turn off at the 1st exit towards Cala Morell/ La Vall d’Algaiarens.
- Keep to the Cala Morell road for approximately 3.4 km until you reach a junction.
- Veer right here and continue along the main road, following directions to La Vall, for approximately 3.7 km.
- As you approach La Vall you’ll see that the carriageway narrows and the road surface gets rougher, slow down to allow for the state of the road surface and the level of traffic, looking out for cyclists and mopeds.
- La Vall d’Algaiarens has two parking sites, some 300 and 500 metres away from the beach respectively. When the first site fills it is closed and if you arrive late you have to park in the site further away. In either case, when parking your vehicle leave room on each side for you to get out and for someone else to park beside you.
- After parking you vehicle you only need to walk for a few minutes to get to one of the most beautiful beaches in the north of the island.
La Vall d’Algaiarens is located in one of the Natural Areas of Special Interest (ANEI) declared in Menorca. Flanked by a large pine wood it had 2 beaches: Es Tancats and Es Bot. Both are outstanding for their crystalline waters and exceptional sea bottoms. Beyond the Punta d’Enmig is the picturesque Cala Fontanelles cove, a frequent refuge for boats
