Lithica After having been used to quarry sandstone, the Quarries of S’Hostal, a landscape of monumental proportions with a three-dimensional, sculptural beauty, have been redeveloped by Líthica and are today a very popular cultural centre. The two distinct methods of quarrying the sandstone have created two contrasting areas: The old manually-worked quarries form a labyrinth of stone and vegetation between inclined walls and irregular shapes where the s’Hostal gardens are being developed to include a botanical circuit lined with native plants and a medieval garden. The modern quarries are vast, impressive spaces dominated by precise vertically dressed walls forming a cubical amphitheatre where concerts are held in the summer.

Cala Sant Esteve is situated at 2,5 kilometres from Es Castell de Menorca, surrounded by the Port Malborough (built by the English between 1710 and 1716) and Castell de Sant Felip (very important in the 18th century for the defence of the Port de Maó), as well as located between Torre d’en Penjat and Punta de Sant Carles, where there is Far de Maó and the access to the port with the same name. It is a big s-shaped sea inlet which goes toward west for a long distance, is the origin of this bathing area with no sand or rocks, with a steep slope. There are lots of summer residences in the surroundings, as well as a large number of small boats anchored along the sinuous coastline. This bathing area has an orientation toward northeast and the wind is moderate.
