Cala Blanca - The Place

As the name Cala Blanca implies, the beach here is made of fine white. The pine fringed cove of low limestone cliffs gives shelter to the beach which slopes gently into clear shallow water. The translucency of the water makes it perfect for diving and snorkelling. Refreshments are available at the many beachside bars and restaurants. A mini-train, which is a favourite with children, runs along the length of the resort. Cala Blanca has a well stocked shopping centre catering for the general needs of holidaymakers. There are also a good number of gift and souvenir shops where holiday mementos can be purchased. Those who holiday in Cala Blanca are fortunate in that they are only four kilometres away from the beautiful Catalan town of Cuidadela. The architecture of the old buildings reflects the wealth of its 17th century inhabitants. There are many extravagant palaces and great houses, each with their sculptured coats of arms above the entrance. Many now house museums. The square in the centre of the town, with its elegant 19th century buildings, is the place to take a coffee break in one of its many pavement cafes. Go down the narrow cobbled streets to the picturesque harbour and you will find excellent fish restaurants with the freshest of ingredients.

Cala Blanca Nightlife

Cala Blanca is a peaceful resort by night as well as by day. Evenings are fairly low key reflecting the popularity of the resort with families.

Cala Blanca Eating

Cala Blanca has many small bars and restaurants providing a wide variety of food to accommodate most tastes. There is great competition for diners from the many waterfront hotels and restaurants which means good value for customers. The Spanish affection for children is well known and they are warmly welcomed even in the more exclusive restaurants. The restaurant Los Toboganes on the sea front has a large waterslide to entertain children while their parents enjoy a meal in peace. Fish, locally caught, is a major part of the island’s cuisine. There is an abundance of prawns, mussels, red mullet and sea bass. Tapas bars are available to fill the gap between lunch and dinner which, in Minorca, can be fairly long. Local wines are pleasant and inexpensive.
