A holiday trio
This purpose-built town first popped its head above the radar in the Eighties. It teamed up with close neighbours Cala’n Blanes and Los Delfines, and together they woke up this sleepy part of Menorca’s west coast. It may not be buzzing by Ibiza’s standards but the British bars and restaurants keep the nightlife lively. And the place comes with its own mini-train, so it’s a doddle to get around.
You’ve got a finger of golden sand that’s tipped by turquoise waters here. Rocky ridges on either side make great sunbathing platforms, and they also double up as dive-off spots for snorkellers. This little cove is great for children as the water stays calm and shallow a long way out. For a bit more space, head for the beach at Cala’n Blanes.
A family welcome
At Cala’n Forcat, the restaurants really appreciate that children have a low boredom threshold, so as well as offering menus that pass inspection by the younger ones, they also lay on play areas and bouncy castles. And the fun factor continues throughout town with trampolines, mini-golf, playgrounds and a waterpark.
Easy daytrips to Ciutadella
Ten minutes’ drive and you’re in Ciutadella, known as Vella I Bella – the Old and the Beautiful. As you walk the cobbled streets you’ll stumble upon elegant palaces – a reminder of the city’s former glory as the island’s capital – and myriad churches and museums. There’s also the cathedral, said to be the largest Gothic building in Menorca, and a marina lined with cafés and restaurants.
