Binimel-là Cove

A very complete beach

Binimel-là is probably one of the most complete beaches on the north coast of Menorca.

Its easy access and services make it a very comfortable place to spend a pleasant day. The characteristics of the terrain make it a quiet place ideal for plans for almost everyone. And the flora and fauna that predominates in the area (where there are abundant remains of posidonia among which we can find ducks swimming in the lagoon or even some of the famous Mediterranean turtles that occupy the place) offer a picturesque landscape difficult to forget.

Sandy beaches predominate throughout the area and, if it were not for the fact that its terrain is quite rocky in its central part, and because you have to walk about 400 meters to reach it, it would be an ideal place to enjoy with the little ones (the only public with which, perhaps, other options would have to be considered).

Binimel-là is a totally virgin cove in which, except for some isolated buildings at its eastern end, there are no constructions that spoil the landscape.
