Es Bot Beach
This week we are going to talk about one of the most beautiful beaches of Minorca, es Bot beach.
Platja des Bot is a beautiful white sand beach, situated at 12 kilometres from Ciutadella, located between Platja es Tancats and Punta Roja. The beaches of es Bot and es Tancats belong to Cala Algaiarens.
This coastal area belongs to the impressive mountainous landscape of la Vall, thick pine trees, scrubland, agricultural land, lakes, system of dunes, spectacular cliffs and virgin beaches.
This coastal stretch and the interior of Tramuntana de Menorca belongs to the Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves by the European Union and Àrea Natural d’Especial Interès.
The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are excellent. This bay is sheltered from the winds from the second and third quadrants and it is deep enough to anchor. Nevertheless you are recommended to only navigate along the north coast of Menorca if the sea is calm because it is very difficult to find a shelter from the strong wind in this area.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs and the deviations. You will have to pay to leave your private car in the surroundings. The last part has to be done on foot.
