Platja de Cavalleria is 9 km from Mercadal, between the Vernís and Ferragut points. It is sheltered by the imposing Cape of Cavalleria, the largest in Menorca with drops of 80 meters to sea-level and a lookout area with stunning panoramic views (there is a path leading to it from the beach). It is part of the Area of Special Interest of Cavalleria.

The bay has two magnificent unspoiled beaches of golden sand edged with impressive cliffs. Behind there is a dune system with some sparse vegetation. It faces north and is popular with boaters. Nudists also like these beaches. It is not advisable for boats to moor overnight as there are some dangerous reefs. Port de Sanitja or Cala Torta are better.

Access by road is easy and well marked, but the final section is rough and unsurfaced. There is free parking.

The beaches attract both locals and tourists.
