Does the bus to Macarelleta prohibit going by car?

No, both options coexist. However, in the busy months (especially July and August) the car park is already full at 9am. Therefore, even if you wanted to go by car you would have a hard time. For those who are in Menorca in less busy months or who get up early in the middle of the season, you will see that the car park is full by 9am. illuminated signs indicating when the car park is full.


Is there also transport to the beaches during the Covid season?

Yes, there are also. In fact, the pandemic only delayed the launch of the shuttle bus to Macarelleta and so many other beaches and coves. For example, in the summer of 2019 the bus transported 94,000 people from June to September.
