Cova d'en Xoroi
Sa Cova d'en Xoroi

Touched by history, washed by the sea…

Just a few minutes away from Torralbenc, we drive to the south of the island, to an impressive natural space located in a beautiful cliff on the coast.

Steeped in mythology, this cavern opened from Tuesday to Sunday from 3:00 p.m, offers a viewpoint with spectacular views from where one can contemplate the sunset immersed in an unbeatable natural framework. At night, this space converts into a well-known club, where one can dance and enjoy a selection of cocktails under the stars.

But Sa Cova d’en Xoroi is much more than that. Its rocks, scented by the sea air, guard with their imposing beauty the legend of a love story.

The legend starts with Xoroi, a man from an unknown past, that came to Menorca from the sea and found refuge in the cave. Nobody knows how he came, perhaps he was the sole survivor from some shipwreck…

During this time, the surrounding houses in the countryside were often robbed. From one of these houses, a young woman disappeared. Months and the years went by and nothing more was known of the missing girl.

One day in the winter, the island was blanketed by unexpected snow. In the snow telltale footprints appeared. Armed men following the imprints went down into the Cave finding Xoroi, the young woman and their three kids.

Xoroi, on seeing himself surrounded and powerless, threw himself into the water. The sea that had brought Xoroi, closed over him guarding the mystery of his life.
