Cala Morrell, Menorca, Spain
An off the beaten track resort with small rocky coves. A quaint village ideal for rest and relaxation. Due to the lack of facilities, Cala Morrell is not recommended for families and young couples, more for those who intend on doing absolutely nothing.
There is a beach but it is quite small and can be pebbly in parts but the crystal clear waters in the cove make it perfect for scuba diving and snorkeling.
Things to Do
There really isn't anything to do in Cala Morrell but the resort is known for the Necropolis which is 14 man made caves. Dating back to the pretalayotic period, the caves were used as a burial ground. The caves are quite something and are a must see whilst in Cala Morell.
