Audax Spa & Wellness Hotel Beach

I was wondering if anyone knows if the Audax Spa & Wellness Hotel Beach nest to the hotel will be overcrowded in the last week of July. From the pictures looks like the bach is a bit small!

Any thoughts?

Thanks

I wouldn't say the beach is small but it is a very popular beach with a lot of day visitors - weekends in particular are very busy. We visited in August and found that it gets extremely busy from around 11 in the morning, however you should be able to get a spot if you don't mind sitting a little further back from the shore. We found it was worth making the effort to go at around 9 am for a couple of hours as it was lovely and peaceful then. If you are going before the UK schools break up it may not be as busy perhaps??

No, I would hardly call the beach at Cala Galdana small either ( look at http://www.menorca.es/zw_webcam.php?zwcam=4 - the Audax is the hotel on the lefthand side of the bay) . The problem at weekends is that lots of locals go there too however, if you are happy to take a stroll along the cami de cavalls path along the headland in either direction you will find less commercialised and busy beaches

Firstly you need to use google maps ALWAYS when looking at resortsas it's all there to see

There is a simple reason the beach closest to the audax is fuller -it' the closest to car parks and the larger majority of hotel guests.The other end past Sol Galvines hotel in August is less full-is not a small beach.

Hi, just back from the Audax and loved it. The (not small) beach does get quite busy, but the hotel pool is one option (really lovely and a nice bar) or go down to the beach early or late in the day - from four pm it gets much quieter but is still hot and the swimming is blissful. We did walk to one of the beaches about 45 minutes from Cala Galdana (Macarella), that was quite busy too. One of the best options we found was a boat trip with swimming in secluded coves, really idyllic. Enjoy!

We have to agree that the best idea is to walk along the cliff top to one of the nearby bays. The sea is gorgeous, and whilst the shoreline can get a bit crowded at times - there is plenty of room.

The sea was so warm that it was lovely to go swimming in the Cala Galdana bay in early evening when most people were packing up to return to their hotels etc.

Even better to hire a little boat and explore the bays by water - and just anchor up and go swimming from the boat. Now that is something we will remember fondly ;)
