With a boss beach, a famous coastal path and a popular cliff bar, Cala'n Porter holidays are a hit with the bucket-and-spade brigade.

Southern star

Cala’n Porter is parked on the cliffs above a top sandy beach, on the Balearic Island of Menorca’s sunny south coast. And this place has stood the test of time, being one of the earliest beach resorts to spring up on the island. It’s easy to nip across to the capital, Mahon, too, where the narrow streets are packed with boutiques and bars.

Knockout sands

Just like most of Menorca, Cala’n Porter’s beach is wrapped by forest-caked cliffs. It’s burrowed into the coastline, which means the waters are tot-friendly. Plus, in summer, there’s a mini-train to run you down there, so you don’t have to brave the 180 steps. It’s got all the essentials and more – think sunbeds, kayaks, play areas and a couple of bars. And there are extra eateries up in the town centre.

Bit of both

As it’s been in the game a while, Cala’n Porter knows how to work both the kid-friendly and couples' angles. It’s got the tennis courts and playgrounds for families, plus a stretch of the Cami de Cavalls – a path that covers the whole island – runs straight through town. Grown-ups, meanwhile, have a crowd-pleasing cave bar.
