Located on the road that goes between Sant Climent and the South Coast, Es Canutells is a quiet beach surrounded by wonderful natural beauty. It is at the mouth of a ravine, between cliffs, and it still retains all of the past’s charms: its banks allow you to see some excavated caves, used by fishermen for storage purposes. Despite the fact that it has grown considerably over the last few years, the urban development around the beach still exude a great sense of tranquility. Here you will find facilities that allow you to enjoy a comfortable and pleasant stay: a bar/restaurant with a terrace overlooking the sea, offering you wonderful paellas and delicious tapas, and at a short 5 minute-walk away, a supermarket in which you will be able to get all for your basic necessities. There are also car rental offices and other activities as kayak and bikes rentals.
A short 17 minute drive away from Canutells, in the direction of Binibeca along the coast road, we find some incredible virgin coves, surrounded by dreamy areas, such as Binidalí, Biniparratx or Binisafua. There are other points of interest to be found close-by, such as the quiet and pleasant village of Sant Climent.

This is the famous Cova d’en Xoroi. It is a legendary natural grotto, which hangs over a cliff and which has been converted into a bar/lounge/disco. This is the ideal place to watch the magical Menorcan sunsets whilst sipping on a glass of wine, or enjoying one of its exclusive nocturnal parties. Its viewpoint allows you to take pleasure from spectacular views of the sea, at any time of the day.
