One of the most rewarding walks is the one that will take you to Cala Trebalúger, where the green, the turquoise blue and the white color of the fine sand merge into one.
**It is not the most accessible cove in the south, but it is one of the most beautiful, so take note of how to make the most of your visit to Trebalúger to make the walk worthwhile. If you don't feel like walking, you can always join a boat trip: to it. I tell you all about it here.
How to get to Trebalúger Cove
I already told you that it is not the most accessible cove of the south coast. **You can only get there on foot but I assure you that the walk is worth it.
Where it is: south coast of Menorca, accessible on foot from Cala Mitjana - see in Google Maps:
It is clear that the car is the most practical way to move around Menorca on your vacations. It allows you flexibility and freedom of schedules, but you will have to take into account that not always the beaches are accessible by private vehicle. And that is the case of Trebalúger, which has no parking or path to it, forcing you to park a few kilometers away, specifically in Cala Galdana, about 40 minutes walk.
The parking lot of Cala Trebalúger
Cala Trebalúger does not have its own parking. If you want to get to the surroundings by car, the most practical way is to park in the parking lot of Cala Galdana and Cala Mitjana and start from there on foot.
How to get to Cala Trebalúger on foot
You will have no choice but to walk to Cala Trebalúger, wherever you come from. From Cala Galdana, for example, you can reach first Cala Mitjana in about 20 minutes on foot and then you will have another 20 minutes to Trebalúger. That's 40 minutes in total. From Cala Fustam, for example, it will take you about 25 minutes walking.
How to get to Cala Trebalúger by bus
The bus is always a good option because in high season it usually has very good frequency. The main coves are well connected with the main towns and will save you the time of parking.
