LOCATION: On the north-western coast of Menorca, just north of Ciutadella. It is one of four small picturesque coves that surround the Los Delfines tourist urbanization.
Description: Cala en Brut is a stunning deep turquoise blue cove, with mostly calm sea. Menorca’s own blue lagoon is distinguished by it’s lack of sandy beach, striking clear blue water, surrounded by rocky cliffs and sunbathing platforms on both sides. Access in and out of the water is via ladders. It’s a big natural swimming pool!
Perfect for: Competent swimmers and the adventurous that enjoy jumping from the platforms into the sea and exiting via the ladders. Also perfect for sunbathing, floating for hours in the water or snorkelling. It’s deep, with no sand and arrival is via steps only. Even if you don’t swim it’s a must-see photo opportunity. Simply Divine.
