A magical sunset in Menorca

If you want a really special, unique and surprising plan then why not choose the Cova d'en Xoroi. It is a legendary natural cave that opens in the small Cala d'en Porter, in Menorca, and offers one of the best viewpoints of the Mediterranean. A place to escape as a couple and marvel at the beauty of this turquoise blue water. The cave has been used as a bar for more than half a century and, little by little, it has become the most exclusive chill out bar, which it is a perfect location to see a magical sunset in Menorca.

The subject of reports and specials segments in international magazines, the Cova d'en Xoroi has evolved from what was initially designed as a disco on the cliff of Cala en Porter to one of the most romantic and select places on the island.

Its perfect location on the seafront, just in front of the island of Mallorca, which can be appreciated perfectly on the clearest days, means it also boasts the most spectacular sunset on the island of Menorca.

Its magic is not only due to its incredible location but also due to the legend that accompanies this cave: it is said that the pirate Xoroi, was stationed there (others point out that he was Arabic). The mere presence of his figure terrified the Menorcans, during those times of Arab colonisation and it is said that there was only one group of brave men who set out to stand up to him.

Finally, after reaching the cave (through the very complicated access point), they managed to corral the pirate who, apparently, threw himself and his son into the sea to try to save himself. After that, he was never heard of again and his lair has become one of the most well known and most visited places on the planet.
