What to do near Cala’n Brut

Due to the conditions of the seabed, it is not advisable to anchor boats in Cala en Brut. However, you can rent a boat in Menorca and anchor in a nearby area to dive close to the beach. It is an increasingly common practice, especially for those curious and daring people who want to dive into the water from the cliffs of Cala en Brut.

If you are passing through the island with friends, don’t miss this opportunity! Fun and adrenaline are guaranteed.

It is usually full of young people, and not so young, brave people hooked on the adrenaline rush that a jump from “La Cueva” provides, people that when they try it, repeat because the scenery of Cala en Brut is perfect for cliff jumping. If this is your case, we recommend you not to take too many belongings to the beach, because between jumps they can be left for a long time on a platform with no one to control them and it is easy for some of them to disappear. It is not an area where theft is common, but as the saying goes, prevention is better than cure.

The great attraction of this cove are the jumps from cliffs, but not everyone dares, because the water is so clear that you can see the rocks of the seabed clearly, and it can be scary because they seem to be close, but there is nothing to worry about, because the distance is enough to jump without even being close to the rocks. We are talking about 4 or 5 meters deep, a considerable distance so as not to be in danger with respect to the rocks. However, it is always necessary to check the safety of the jump, calculate distances, impulse… the necessary measures to make a safe jump.

Doing a cliff jump requires guts, but doing it from La Cueva is only for the brave. A 10-meter drop that you have to know how to face, because if you enter the water wrong, you will probably get hurt a lot.

You will find La Cueva at the bottom of the cliff, and if you regret it, you can make your way back, there is no pressure.

It is also a perfect beach for snorkeling and diving. Its seabed full of algae, aquatic plants, rock and sand create a perfect marine habitat for the coexistence of many species that will be seen during the day. A beautiful ecosystem worth seeing, especially to teach the little ones to learn about the different species that exist in our Minorcan and Mediterranean waters.

How to get to Cala’n Brut by boat?

To reach Cala en Brut by boat, we must leave the port of Mahón heading SE. We will sail along the coast, leaving Illa del Rei to port.

We will continue out to the open sea, leaving the Punta de Sant Carles lighthouse to starboard.

Following the coastline in a southerly direction we will pass the outcrops of Na Girada and Punta Rafalet. We will continue skirting the island, which will take us in a SW direction and leave Punta Prima and Punta dels Marbres to starboard. At this point we will have the Illa de l’Aire on our port side.

Following the coastline, we will head in a NW direction and ascend passing Cabo Binibeca, Illot d’en Marçal, Cap d’en Font, Cap de ses Penyes, Illot de Binicodrell, Punta de Macarella, Punta des Tambors… until we reach Cap d’Artrutx (at the SW end of the island). From here we will ascend in NW direction towards the Cap de Banyos.

Before reaching it, we will see three entrances to the coast: one very narrow and elongated, another triangular in shape (which narrows as we go further into the coast), and another with a narrow and elongated shape but that forks into 2 towards the end.

It is in the second one (the triangular-shaped one) where we will find Cala’n Brut.
