Cala Presili (also called Capifort) is the first beach where you arrive from the Favàritx lighthouse through the route of Camí de Cavalls. It doesn’t look like the beaches in north of Menorca. Its sand is white and fine and doesn’t have the characteristic red color of other beaches such as Cavalleria or Pregonda.
The beach is usually frequented by nudists and is within the limits of the Albufera des Grau. This means you arein a protected space, declared a Biosphere Reserve, so please respect the environment.
How To Get There
From both Ciutadella and Mao you must go to the Fàvaritx Lighthouse or to the Albufera des Grau. When you arrive at the road that leads you to the lighthouse you have to ignore the “private property” sign and go ahead. Around 200m before arriving at the lighthouse on the left side of the road there is a parking. A little further on the right there is the diversion of Camamil·la with the information signs of Cala Presili and Cala Tortuga. In front of the parking there is indicated the path of the Camí de Cavalls.
From the Camamil·la diversion, just in front of the parking, tou’ll see the signs to the beaches. To go to Presili you’ll have to walk less than 1 km through the Cami de Cavalls. When the path has to possible ways to continue, you can choose to go to Tortuga beach or to Presili. You can also make the route by bike (mountain bike) without difficulties.
If you would like to go to Cala Tortuga you have to walk one more kilometer from the diversion. But you need to know that it’s more crowded than Cala Presili. Personally I like more Cala Presili – Capifort
Once You Are There
As you may guessed there are’nt any kind of services in Cala Presili. If you go in summer do not forget to bring some water. On the beach you can enjoy a crystalline water and views to Favàritx lighthouse.
It’s a good place to practice the snorkel or scuba diving. If you also like hiking do not miss a visit to Cala Tortuga. You only need to follow the path that you made just before the deviating and walk 1200 meters. The views of the Cala Tortuga and the Bahia behind it are worthwhile!
