A Little Bit About Cala n’ Porter, Menorca

Just 15 minutes drive from the airport and 20 minutes from capital of Mahon makes it an easy destination to visit. It has a great village atmosphere with busy little bars and restaurants. It is the most beautiful cove to feast your eyes on with safe bathing for children where you can try snorkelling, kayaking or hire a little boat. There are fabulous walks around the Paseo Maritimo, over to Cales Coves, the next cove. Evening entertainment in and around the village is free to everyone. The famous nightclub, Cova d’en Xoroi is 10 minutes walk away and is perfect for a sunset cocktail.  The views from the caves are stunning out towards Majorca and definitely worth a visit during the day or night.  

Some of our favourite restaurants are Casa Tia Tapas, La Vela, El Pulpo & Samoa.  Great bars include Club Menorca, Ayashe Lounge and Aloha Cocktail Bar.  Sa Paissa is a great all rounder from breakfast to dinner and has great fun bands and entertainment during the evenings.

The famous ‘Cami De Cavalls’ coastal path is just 5 minutes from villa Casas Fiesta and surrounds the whole of Menorca.  It has existed since 1330 to protect and defend Menorca but, has recently been renovated and in 2010 opened to the public.  It is 185km in total and can be walked in stages with stunning rural and sea views.  From Cala n’ Porter you can walk one way to Son Bou (3hrs) and the other, towards Binissafuller (4hrs).

Mao / Mahon, the charming capital can be reached by bus from Cala n’ Porter in 20 minutes and has plenty to offer.  It boasts the biggest natural harbour in the Mediterranean and only second to Pearl Harbour in the world.  There are numerous wonderful restaurants along the harbour overlooking all the yachts.  Various highlights to see include the Iglesia de Santa Maria, Museum of Menorca, Xoriguer Gin Factory and many boat trips around the harbour or island depart from here.  If you fancy a change, Es Castell is only 10 minutes away and has a pretty little harbour, Cala Fonts which is full of restaurants serving local fresh fish and buzzing during the evening.
