Although it is not the perfect destination for those who are looking for a day at the beach in solitude, Cala Blanca is a very comfortable beach, especially if you stay around it, as there are many options to stay. Do you want to know in depth all the options Cala Blanca has to offer? Keep reading!
How to get to Cala Blanca
Cala Blanca is in the west of Menorca, only 5 minutes by car from Ciudadela. You will access in a very fast and comfortable way. I tell you all the options that exist below:
Less than 4 km from Ciudadela you will find Cala Blanca if you follow the road to Cap d'Artrutx. Being a fairly urbanized urban cove you can quickly find a place to park in one of its parking lots.
If you are staying in one of the hotels or apartments, the best thing to do is to walk to the beach. This beach is very comfortable and easy to access, which has made it very popular especially with families.
Thanks to its location, there are several bus lines that will take you close to the beach. I recommend you to consult the web page of transport of Menorca to find out which line suits you best and which are their schedules.
Visit Cala Blanca on a boat excursion
Cala Blanca is not one of the main tourist attractions on the island. Being an urban beach it doesn't have the charm of some of the unspoilt beaches found in the south of Menorca, so it's not so easy for boat tours to get here. My advice is to enjoy the beach, as it is easily accessible and that the day you want to take a boat tour, you do it to discover the best unspoiled coves of Menorca.
What to do in Cala Blanca
In Cala Blanca you can enjoy a comfortable and relaxing day at the beach. It is usually very crowded but its proximity to the various developments and hotels in the area usually makes it quite saturated. Perhaps it is not the best place for snorkeling, because despite its crystal clear waters, the large volume of people makes marine life is not particularly concentrated in this area. If you want to snorkel in Menorca it will be better to go in search of more natural virgin corners.
The best time to visit Cala Blanca
At Cala Blanca it is best to arrive early in the morning to find a good spot and spend the rest of the day quietly. It should not cost you much to park (and if you are staying there you will not have that problem) but throughout the day the beach is usually very crowded, so you will be grateful to have arrived early.
What services does Cala Blanca have
Cala Blanca has everything. It has several options to stay in the area (if you want you can check availability at Cala Blanca Apartments) and along the developments you will find green areas, playgrounds, supermarkets... The beach has a lifeguard service.
Where to eat in Cala Blanca
Around the area you will find different options for all tastes and budgets. I would highlight Cas Safra Gastrobar, the favorite of visitors to the area, but you will also find good quality in other bars and restaurants such as Miramar or Cala Blanca.
Visit Cala Blanca with children
Visit Cala Blanca with the whole family is a great option if you are looking for comfort to spend a day at the beach, with all kinds of services nearby. Accessing the cove is very easy and the little ones will appreciate staying in the area.
