Introducing Holidays to Cala Blanca 2017 / 2018
The modern resort of Cala Blanca offers everything you could want from a Balearics beach holiday, including calm water perfect for swimming, a wide variety of places to eat and drink, and easy access to other points of interest around Menorca.
Cala Blanca is an excellent base and has enough local amenities to provide for your holiday, while former capital Ciutadella is nearby, with bigger and more plentiful shops, as well as historical and cultural sights and activities. You can also reach nearby Cala Santandria.
Surrounded by bars, cafés and restaurants, the beaches are small and set into a cove, with shallow waters gently lapping the golden sand. It’s ideal for young children to explore the sea safely, with the long and narrow strip of ocean serving as a natural swimming pool.
Water sports and diving are readily available, but there are also a couple of nearby water parks to choose from if you want a break from the sea - meaning you'll always have a place to keep cool and make the most of your holiday in Cala Blanca.

A visit to Ciutadella is a must, because the old capital is the best place to see the winding cobbled streets and historical architecture that really give you a feel of traditional Menorca. With Cala Blanca being such a modern resort, it’s easy to miss out on this experience otherwise. Ciutadella is also excellent for shopping, cafes and nightlife, and could even make a visit to the new capital of Mahon unnecessary.
The Festival of Sant Joan in Ciutadella is an annual event that brings many people to the old capital to see the traditional events which all involve magnificent Menorcan horses. Horses and their costumed riders race and joust for the crowds, and it’s considered good luck to touch the horses if you can. Fireworks finish off the festival for a real party atmosphere.
Life's a Beach
If you’re a novice diver or have never given it a try but always wanted to, you may never get a better introduction than that on offer at Cala Blanca. Head to one of the many diving schools in the area for some expert help – then you can start taking advantage of the peaceful, shallow waters for learning and fun.
Diving is a popular attraction off the coast of Cala Blanca, where the calm and clear sea offers easy underwater exploration.
If you’re keen to explore the island and have small children to entertain, it’s just 40 minutes in the car to the zoological park at Son Bou to see the kind of wildlife that kids will love, including kangaroos, monkeys, lemurs and parrots. You can top this off with a visit to the beach at Son Bou, which is bigger and busier than Cala Blanca but still a great place to swim, picnic and sunbathe.
The opportunity to swim in such an unusual and naturally convenient cove is the main attraction of Cala Blanca. This is particularly good for families with young children who want to ensure they stay as possible in the sea.
Kids will also love the Aqua Center Water Park and Aquarock Water Park, which are both a short drive away and have watery attractions as well as places to eat, drink and relax while the little ones are having fun.
