Insider's View

Menorca Insider It is, essentially, a resort for tourists, but Cala Morell doesn't feel touristy...

...it is filled with dinky, whitewashed apartments peering seawards...

Far from, well, anything really, Cala Morell doesn't just give the impression that it's an isolated resort - it is exactly that. On the way you'll spot few signs of life - the odd farm and herds of cows on flat roads that lead out to the coast - but little more. Cala Morell is one of a handful of places on Menorca's storm battered north coast that offers refuge from winter winds, with sheer cliffs protecting the crystal waters in the bay.

It is, essentially, a resort for tourists, but Cala Morell doesn't feel touristy in the English breakfast and sangria sense of the word. On the contrary, it is filled with dinky, whitewashed apartments peering seawards in the oldest part, and with newer - often architecturally adventurous - villas lining the roads that weave their way uphill. Beyond them, barren cliff tops are a testimony to bitter winters. The few trees you can see are bent double in submission to the north wind.

There is nothing in the way of nightlife, and I can only think of one restaurant, so bring a good book. This is a place to snorkel, to sunbathe on the many smooth stone platforms, to watch fishermen, to visit prehistoric caves, and to tone your thighs on the endless steps that connect the tiny (and at times, pebbly) beach to accommodation.

I wouldn't recommend staying here without a car. It's only a few miles on a bike to the longer, undeveloped beach Algaiarens, but visiting Ciutadella on a saddle is one sweaty ride under summer sun, and will feel too much like hard work for most.
