Three for one
Cala’n Forcat may be a small place in itself, but it comes as part of a handy 3-for-1 package on Menorca’s west coast. It’s teamed up with close neighbours Cala’n Blanes and Los Delfines to give you a decent slice of holiday action. Between the 3 you’ll get plenty of bars, shops and restaurants – and a great little beach share.
A trio of beaches
You’ve got a trio of sandy beaches to choose from. The busiest one is at Cala’n Blanes which is backed by shops and cafés, while the 2 more northerly coves are the quiet, unspoiled spots. They’ve all got calm, shallow waters which are great for kids and snorkellers.
Cala’n Forcat is all about families. It lines up trampolines, playgrounds, mini-golf and a waterpark to entertain pint-sized guests during the day. Most of the eating spots serve up bouncy castles and play areas along with the kids’ dishes, so evenings should be a cinch, too.
Close to Ciutadella
Ten minutes’ drive and you’re in Ciutadella, which used to be the capital of Menorca before Mahon took over. What you get here is a great mix of old cobbled streets and modern boutiques. The place is packed with cafés so plenty of pitstops are in order. And if you’re staying on for the evening, you’ll find some top-notch seafood restaurants along the harbour.
