Cala Tortuga / nude beaches in northern Menorca

Cala Tortuga: white sand, turquoise water

Cala Tortuga (or turtle beach) is a lovely spot, enough off the beaten track to dissuade all but the most determined of visitors. The fine white sandy beach is around 200m long and the turquoise waters shallow and inviting.

The scenery is pleasant, too, and there’s a picture-postcard view of the Favaritx lighthouse. It’s a very popular beach for nudist visitors.

Since 2018 the only access to the beach in the summer months has been by bus from Mahon.

No parking June-October

Any time

From June to October, the only way to reach Cala Presili and Cala Tortuga is by shuttle bus from Mahon bus station. Buses run from 0945 to 1915 (2000 in July and August) and you can by tickets online here

In April and May it’s possible to drive: Follow the PM-710 Mahon-Addaya road, turning off towards the coast at the signs for the Favaritx lighthouse. Follow the road until you reach a fork, and here turn right through a gate. About 200m before the lighthouse there is a roped-off parking area to the left. You will find signs a little further on, on the right, giving directions along the Cami de Cavalls to Presili and Tortuga; Presili is around a one-kilometre walk
