Can I escape the major resorts in Menorca?

Yes, plenty of rural areas, especially on the North Coast, natural beaches with no public amenities or facilities, often only accessible by car and requires some walking along tracks, paths or trails. Cala Mesquida, Cala Tortuga, Cavalleria and South Coast, Cala Turqueta, Trebaluger, Macarella are great places to visit to get away from it all.
