Cala Blanca is one of the newest resorts in Menorca, having been purpose built in the early 1990s. However, that doesn’t mean if you book package holidays in Cala Blanca you will find it quiet. Far from it, Cala Blanca is one of Menorca’s most popular holiday destinations, but as most people come for the beaches and sunshine, it lacks the rowdiness of the resorts preferred by the fun-seekers and younger crowd. This doesn’t mean Cala Blanca lacks excitement, although you do have to look harder for it.
Most people who book package holidays in Cala Blanca do so for the beaches. Cala Blanca has two of them, Playa Cala Blanca and Cala Santandria, both of which comprise soft sand that slope into shallow waters. While Cala Blanca and Cala Santandria used to be regarded as separate resorts, the spread of hotels and facilities now means they have essentially merged, but this can lead to confusion for local taxi drivers, many of whom still hold with the distinctions. Playa Cala Blanca has the most amenities, with beachside cafes and bars, and you’ll also find water chutes and other children’s activities that make holidays in Cala Blanca very family friendly.
If you want a night out or wish to do a bit of shopping, there is a central tourist area, but you could always head to Los Delfines to the north, which is Menorca’s most lively resort. There are a few watersports on offer at the beaches, and the diving school is very popular so it is worth booking classes in advance. The nearby Son Angel farm offers horse riding and pony treks. The area is very scenic, which makes it a great place to take long walks. While it might not be the liveliest resort in Menorca, holidays in Cala Blanca are great for families, couples and those that are not that interested in an explosive nightlife.
