All the information about Cala Pregonda, the most famous cove in the north of Menorca.

How to get to Macarella?

There are different ways to get to Macarella. We remind you that it is 15km south of Ciutadella. The road to Macarella is well indicated throughout the town of Ciutadella.

  • By bus: *From June 1 to September 30 you can only get to the beach by bus.* Dueto the massification that had to reach Macarella creating security problems it was decided to create this bus line for the summer months. The truth is that it works very well. Obviously it is more convenient to take the car and go directly to the beach but when you get there you will be thankful that there are not as many people as there were 3 or 4 years ago. Tickets must be booked on this website:
  • Own vehicle: During the low season it is possible to arrive by own vehicle.
  • Walking from Cala Galdana or Cala’n turqueta: If you leave the car at either of these two beaches (much easier to leave the car in Cala Galdana) you can reach Macarella on foot. From Cala Galdana it is 5km. From Cala’n turqueta it is only 1.7 km but of a higher difficulty.
  • By Bike: You can reach Macarella (15km) by bike all year round.

How to get to Macarelleta?

When you have reached Macarella you must follow a small path located to the right of Macarella beach (facing the sea). A 10 minute walk along this path will take you to Macarelleta.

If you go from Cala’n turqueta by the Camí de Cavalls you will arrive earlier to Macarelleta.
