Cala n Forcat - The Place

Once a deserted headland on the western tip of Menorca, Cala n Forcat and its neighbours Cala n Blanes and Los Delfines were born in the eighties and are now very popular resorts, particularly with the British. Apart from one or two large hotel complexes, Cala n Forcat accommodation is many self-catering apartments. There are restaurants galore, many of them serving British fare for the less adventurous palate. Shopping is largely limited to groceries, beach items and holiday souvenirs. Since the old capital Cuitadella is only a short bus ride away, this matters little. Here you can enjoy the shops as well as the beauty of the architecture reflecting the glory of its past.

Holidays in Cala n Forcat are very child centred. The water park for instance is more suited to young children than those seeking heart-stopping thrills. The deep inlet sheltered by high rocks on one side and with bathing platforms on the other has very shallow, warm water, ideal for young paddlers and weak swimmers. Further out, conditions are perfect for snorkelling and diving.

A mini-train runs between Cala n Forcat and its neighbours which increases your choice of beaches and recreational activities.
