This week we are going to talk about one of the most beautiful beaches of the island, Pregonda beach.
Cala Pregonda is situated at 10 kilometres from es Mercadal, located between Platja de Binimel.là and Cap de s’Alairó. In front of its coast you can see Illot and Esculls de Pregonda (habitat of the rare seagull Audouin). This beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful of Menorca.
The biggest problem of this beach is the distant from almost anywhere on the island, and mostly the long distance you have to walk from the car park to the beach (it takes about 30 minutes down a path where there is no shade).
The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are good if you are careful, the beach is closed by some small islands in the north, with a dangerous strait, and it is very open to the winds from the north. Nevertheless, it has a sandy ground at a depth of about three metres, and turquoise crystal clear water.
