From Es Mercadal
It is preferable to access El Mercadal from the easternmost roundabout, from the first we find from Mahón, as at these roundabouts we will see signs to the 'playas' (beaches). Just surround Es Mercadal on the East side, by the roundabouts, until you reach Camí de Tramontana.
Detour towards Pegonda or Binimel.la
We will get to a detour, a very wide and gravel road with signs indicating " Pregonda y Platja de Binimel.la". After 1,5 km we will reach the restaurant near Binimel.la where there is space for half a hundred cars on the road verges.
Camí de Cavalls
After parking, reach Binimel.la beach, continue along the coastline towards our left. Go past Cales Mortes, Pregondó, Pregonda, continue along Camí de Cavalls through a forest and cross a paved road (where Camí de Cavalls continues). Just immediately after crossing the road we will see Cala Barril
Last stretch of Camí de Cavalls
Continue along Camí de Cavalls from Cala Barril, go up a hill and continue for about 1 more km along a field with no shade. The total distance from the parking at Binimel.la to Es Vermells is 4 km. There is no walking access to the swimming area, it is only accesible by boat.
