Holidays to Cala Canutells take you to a tiny village in Menorca. It’s the perfect spot for an away-from-it-all break, though you’re still just 10 minutes from the island capital.
The best of both worlds
Set in a steep gorge on Menorca’s southern tip, this one-time fishing hamlet retains its rustic feel. It’s a cosy destination, home to low-rise sugar-cube villas and hotels, and just a smattering of shops and bars. But with the island capital, Mahon, just a 10-minute drive away, you’ve no need for anything more.
A secluded beach
Stone steps lead you down to this secluded cove, which offers up golden sands and turquoise waters that are perfect for paddling. There's a beach bar that will sort you out with drinks and snacks. And when you fancy a livelier beach scene, Cala’n Porter’s big, horseshoe-shaped bay is a 15-minute drive away.
With its Georgian and Regency houses, narrow streets and Baroque church, Mahon is a good-looking town. The grand harbour splits the place in two – the south side houses the shops and historic old quarter, while the north is residential. The quayside is the place to head for bars and restaurants.
