Cala'n Blanes is situated on Menorca's rugged west coast and has the most popular beach in the area. The resort is close to the former capital of the island, Ciutadella, but 30 miles from the airport. Cala'n Blanes has grown, together with its neighbours, Cala'n Forcal and Los Delfines, to become Menorca's largest tourist area.
Accommodation, which is mostly apartments, has only been developed since the 1980's and the local shops reflect the self-catering nature of the resort. Apartamentos Siesta Park, Apartaments California, Eden Village, and Apartamentos Ses Orenetes are a few of the more popular hotels and apartments with coastal views.
The main beach in Cala'n Blanes is the nicest beach in this part of the island, which means it can get very crowded, particularly at weekends. There are more secluded small inlets and bays, but they tend to have rocky shores and deep waters. With car hire, tourists can explore the island's beaches to find the quietest and most picturesque on the whole island.
There are a lot of great attractions for both couples and families in Malta. Younger children should enjoy the Aqua Centre water-park, which is situated between the resort and Ciutadella. The park receives good reports for its cleanliness and the good value offered by its restaurant.
Ciutadella has enough local colour and traditional festivals for everyone! There are daily open-air markets in the Plaza del Mercat, plus those held on Fridays and Saturdays in the Plaza de Es Bon. Carnivals and fiestas take place throughout the year, the most spectacular of which is the Fiesta of Saint Joan, which is held on the 23rd and 24th of June. Other Saints' days and events, which commemorate historic episodes, are held from January onwards.
There are many restaurants, cafes and bars in Ciutadella and its neighbouring resorts. They offer a mix of local and international food and include snack bars and pizzerias.
Local car hire is available, however, it is a lot more expensive than if tourists prebook car hire online in advance of travel. The majority of tourists arrive at Menorca Airport. Car hire companies operating from desks in the arrival's hall include Hertz, Europcar, EasyCar, Avis, National, Auto Europe, Centauro and Owner's cars (a local firm). For more options and a greater choice of cars prebook online with us today.
Public transport services including taxi's. buses and shuttle services are fairly reliable around Cala'n Blanes, and to and from the island's airport, although getting to the more secluded parts of Malta may prove quite difficult and expensive.
