The coastline of Minorca, less crowded than the other islands of the archipelago, is amongst Spain's less damaged in terms of tourism development. The north of Minorca possesses very steep landscapes and red sand or pebble beaches. In summer, the village of Fornells attracts wealthy customers where luxury boats drop anchor alongside the local fishing boats. From there, the road to Cape Cavalleria leads to a rocky promontory, home to the ruins of Sanitja, an ancient Phoenician village. Further west, the beaches of Pregonsa, Pilar, and La Vall d'Algaiarens are well preserved but more difficult to access.
