Macarelleta, Menorca’s bay that illustrates the Nutella jars

Have you already seen Macarelleta on the shelves of the supermarkets?

Macarelleta, has been one of the 15 landscapes that has been chosen to illustrate the campaign of the well-known brand Nutella “lo Bueno lo tenemos en casa”.


And as the campaign states, we are fortunate to live in the Mediterranean paradise, in Menorca.

Macarelleta is one of the most renowned beaches in the south of the island, if you have have already been there, you will understand why.  As the well-known brand of chocolate and hazelnut spread emphasizes, Macarelleta is the typical postcard image. “It is a perfect area for snorkelling, it also hides a secret: a mysterious underwater cave.  If you visit Menorca, this beach is a must”.

Macarelleta can only be reached by foot or via boat, but its crystal turquoise seawaters, and the landscape that surrounds the bay, are worthwhile visiting.  As they mentioned at the brand’s press release; “The turquoise waters of Macarelleta have nothing to envy to those of the Caribbean”.

If you have not visited it yet, you can do so this summer.
