10 Things to Do in Ciutadella That You Shouldn't Miss

February 3, 2018 Enriqueta Cusson

You’ll find 17th-century, Italian-style buildings and an interesting old cathedral here. However, many travelers are drawn to Ciudadela’s lively nightlife and fiestas, including the Processo dels Tres Tocs on January 17 and a celebration of Sant Joan, the town’s patron saint, on June 23–24. They feature dancing, parades and pomada, a drink combining gin and lemon.

...but I think you'd struggle to get a whole day out of it. Four good larger slides, entry is not particularly cheap and if, like me, you are mainly watching the kids, it's an expensive watch. The sun beds, shades etc are all extra but take a towel and a mat and sit under a tree. We did two good hours but that was enough really.

Cala Blanca Beach

Reviewed By Brian W - Merthyr Tydfil, United Kingdom

This is a small sandy beach overlooked by several restaurants; you can hire loungers and parasols, but the charges are a little high; popular for swimming and snorkelling, although the water is not that clear in the shallows, and it is necessary to swim further out in the cove to get good visibility for snorkelling.

Cala Es Talaier

Reviewed By bas k - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

CALA DES TALAIER(cove of the watch-tower) is called after a nearby watch-tower(torre TALAIA D''ARTRUTX).On both my visits the beach at CALA DES TALAIER was much cleaner compared to the smelly posidonia-depostits at the larger PLATJA DE SON SAURER.If you want to do a short easy scenic strech of the CAMI DE CAVALLS I recommend taking a minibus to Turqueta and buy a ticket back in Ciutadella to use from son saurer .
This way you walk 1 hour to es talaier;have a swim and walk one more hour to son saurer parking and take the 17.45 bus to Ciutadella.

This beach is very quiet and just past it if you keep walking there are even more secluded spots. The water is lovely and the rocky outcrops make it look stunning. I spent an afternoon picking up rubbish at one of the small Beaches as rubbish does wash up and get stuck. On the walk to the beach there are scores/hundreds of small rocky piles which look epic!

Very quiet and peaceful area. It's possible to walk from the port to the ferry port along the coastline which takes about 45 minutes.

Playas de Algaiarens

Reviewed By alisonj682

We visited this week but were disappointed as although a sunny hot day the sea here was very rough. They had red flags on the first stretch of beach a d it was being used by surfers the second stretch also had big waves and there was also a lot of seaweed. We decided not to stay as have small children and we hoped for calm shallow water for them. It was even a bit too rough for me to attempt. It's just nature but just be aware that this beach can also be rough seas if you are heading here. It is a 10 min walk from first car park.

Long approach road, busy car park and then 15 minutes walk to beach. Didn't go as we found the road difficult with passing places and stone walls ready to hit the unwary

I found my walk around the quarries enjoyable. The depth of quarries in impressive, particularly the new quarries. Of course, there are also quarries still being exploited in the area that have similar features. The old quarries have Gardens that are pleasant though not exceptional. I have read reviews complaining about heat and cost. Not sure if I would have enjoyed this attraction so much at high season. As it is, in the low season it is free, there were just a few people walking about and the weather was very pleasant.,

Reviewed By andymwood - Sunderland

Its about a 20-25 minute drive from Citutadella along a windy road. Would make a demanding cycle. There is a car park is about a mile from the point itself. The walk along the path is impressive because it can be so quiet - no traffic, few birds - just silence. Splendid views as if you're on another planet.
When you reach the point - sheer cliffs, wide ocean views. You can't go in the lighthouse - don't expect a cafe or facilities. To reach the cliffs its hard, stony off road paths, take some rugged shoes. You can explore gun turrets and enjoy the views.
We went mid morning, Reading the reviews, will go back to check out the sunsets.
