Interesting virgin beaches
You can travel by car to Playas de Cavallería and Binimel·la. Beginning at the latter beach, you can then take the Camí de Cavalls first to the famous Cala Pregonda and later, to many other small, peaceful coves.
The distance to the airport from the farthest city centre of this municipality, Playas de Fornells, is 30 km. The distance until the port of Mahón is 25 km and to the commercial port of Ciutadella, 35 km. The distance between Mercadal and the closest beach, Cala Tirant, is 7 km.
The bus has a regular line that runs through the island from Mahón to Ciutadella throughout the year. It stops at Mercadal approximately every 40 minutes (from Mondays to Saturdays. Bus travel frequency is reduced to six times a day on Sundays and holidays).
From June 15 to September 15, the line linking Mahón with Addaia, Arenal den Castell, Golf Course, Son Parc, Playas de Fornells, Fornells and Mercadal is reinforced, coming around 40-50 minutes. This line is reduced to practically nothing during the winter season.
