Cala En Blanes lies in the rocky west coast of Minorca five kilometres west of Cuitadella. Transfer time from the airport is between one and one and a quarter hours. Cala n Blanes is considered to be one of the best beaches on the west coast of the island. It is a lively resort by Minorcan standards and very popular with the British.
Cala En Blanes, on the western tip of Minorca, was once a deserted coastline of tiny coves and deep rocky inlets. Together with its neighbours Cala n Forcat and Los Delphines, it is one of Minorca's most recent resorts. Constructed in the 1980s to accommodate the increasing numbers of visitors to this popular island, these three resorts have almost merged into one. Pine trees and palms line the fine sandy beach which slopes very gently into the clearest of water. The craggy rocks to the sides shelter the cove from wind so the sea is also very calm. Conditions are perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving. There is a diving centre in the area which caters for both novice and experienced divers.
A mini train runs between Cala En Blanes and the neighbouring resorts. The resort has a number of themed bars aimed at British holiday maker. There is a water park in neighbouring CalaE n Forcat, mainly suited to younger children as the flumes are rather less than death defying. There is also a mini golf course. Cala En Blanes is essentially a family resort where people go to relax, soak up the sun and enjoy bathing in warm shallow waters. Take a short bus ride to Cuitadella, the former capital, and enjoy the beauty of the architecture reflecting the glory of its past.
