Access 1 – In a car from the main road across Menorca from Mahon pass through Ferrerias on the way to Ciutadella take the left-hand exit marked for Cala Pilar. From Ciutadella on the way to Ferrerias you pass the Castillo Menorca (Castle & Karting Track) on your left then immediately afterwards on the descent take the right-hand exit marked for Cala Pilar. This road leads onto a track that leads to Sant Bernat, Al Putzer, Bini Canó, Sant Felip and Alfurí. The parking for Cala Pilar is free, however, there is a long walk of 1,8 kilometres (about one hour) to reach the cove.
Access 2 – Via the sea. If possible the best access is via boat, kayak or jet ski. Its a great family beach if you arrive by boat, the walk is too long for small children.
