Overview

Los Delfines, Cala'n Forcat, Cala en Bruc and Cala en Blanes are all a collection of 'mini resorts' along this coastal stretch and merged with each other so you can walk to any other place. Los Delfines is the local 'resort name' for this area and is where the majority of bars,restaurants,supermarkets and entertainments are gathered - see interactive maps for details. The largest beach for this area is at Cala en Blanes, and again is a walk from any location or a ride on the resort 'train'. There are a few smaller beaches, Cala en Forcat, Calas Piques at the ends of long finger like inlets. The areas accommodation divides into package Holiday Hotels/Apartment Hotels and private villas. There is a wide variety of Bars and Restaurants across this whole area and for active children there is an Aquapark, where parents can also relax.

This is one of the most touristically developed areas on the island, but holiday villas are mostly located amongst the residential homes in quieter areas so you can have the best of both world - plenty of activities yet peace and quiet.

Facilities

Due to the 'competition' many bars, restaurants have free children's play areas to attract families with children and is a common characteristic of this whole area.

There is a local bus service into the nearby old capital of Ciutadella and a "resort" train picks up and drops off a various points with in the various neibouring resorts. The Los Delfines area itself is compact and can be easily explored on foot being predominantely flat apart from access points to the beaches which lie in inlets.

Beaches

Main Beach is at Cala en Blanes

Cala en Blanes Pre-season in Spring 2008
Shaded area at rear of beach

See Photo Guide for pictures

Cala en Blanes at the eastern edge is by far the largest of the three and also has a couple of beachside cafeBars. Most people will eventually head to Cala en Blanes in the peak season as the other two beaches become 'tight'.

Cala en Forcat towards the western end of the area. A long thin inlet with a relatively small sandy areas at the rear on three inlets. Along the inlets there are sunbathing platforms which helps with the crowding on the sandy area. No facilities directly on the beach but close to local facilites.

Calas Piques At the western edge. Mobile beach bar + toilets facilities and very small rough 'sandy' area. Long inlet for swimming.

Cala en Brut/Bruc in the middle. An attractivelly cove with no beach but tastefully done concrete sunbathing platforms and access points to the sea.

Menorca Holiday Tip

Mahon will mostly be written on timetables, signposts as Maó it's correct local name. Also posted in the local papers eg Ultima Hora Menorca, Menorca towards the back pages are most of the islands bus timetables. You will nearly always find a copy of this in a spanish cafe bar ( any day in season will do ) - make notes, please don't take paper as its there for all to read. If you are staying longer than a week take a trip on this good network and see some of the other resorts/towns first hand.

The bus does a round trip so look at full timetable for a particular bus stop's departure time.

    Ciutadella

    Eine elegante Geschmack vergangener Zeiten. Mit schönen alten Paläste , maurischen Einflüssen, eine wunderschöne Altstadt und einem charmanten kleinen Hafen.Ciutadella war die ursprüngliche Hauptstadt der Insel und liegt am westlichen Rand der Insel mit Blick auf seine größeren Nachbarn - Mallorca. Eine hervorragende Gegensatz zu den Strand und Badeorte.

    Ciutadella bietet tolle Atmosphäre und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Es ist einfach wunderschön durch der Altstadt Fußgängerzone mit ihren vielen engen Gassen, versteckten Geschäften und Cafes alles zu entdecken.

    Auch ständig im "Wettbewerb" mit Mahon für den Titel "Ort der besten Musik-Bars und Lokalen" auf der Insel! Der Schauplatz für die spektakuläre Sant Joan Fest im Juni - wenn fantastischen schwarzen einheimischen Pferden durch die Straßen gehen. Hier stehen die edlen menorquinischen Rösser, die von ihren Reitern zu waghalsigen Kunststücken angetrieben werden, im Mittelpunkt.

    Cala Morells

    A small quiet fishing village resort on the north west coast set in dramatic rocky coastlines. Best known for the extensive man made (Bronze and Iron ages) cave dwellings nearby that give a real sense of cave "living" ( though many caves were also for burial ). Some are sophisticated with central roof columns and 'windows'. Some are obviously younger and larger, cut with more advanced metal tools, but the smaller older ones gives a view into another world. A good place to combine with a visit to the beautiful virgin beach of Algaiarens and walks through the very attractive valleys of Vall de Algaiarens.
