Spend a day exploring the Cap de Cavalleria
There is so much to see and do here. Visit the lighthouse and visitors' centre, feed the wild goats and marvel at the stunning views along the north coast. Once you have done that, park your car at the remains of the Roman villas and take a walk around the area. This is the Port of Sa Nitja, where the Romans landed when they invaded Menorca. Wander off the beaten tracks to see tombs, a basilica, remains of villas etc, that are all still being excavated. Afterwards, cool off on the local beaches that are great for snorkelling.
