Car Hire Menorca Cala'n Blanes


Cala’n Blanes is a famous resort on the west coast of Menorca, around 50km to the west of Mahon and the international airport. In recent times, Cala’n Blanes has merged with the surrounding resorts of Cala’n Forcat and Los Delfines, and is the greatest establishment on the island. It is also a recent construct, dating back to the late 1980s, in response to the high demand for accommodation on the island. You will find that most of the accommodation includes self-catered flats or private villas which are particularly preferred by families and couples, but hotel accommodation is also available in limited capacity.

Although it may be a little challenging getting to the resort unless it has been accounted for within a package holiday or if a taxi has been pre-booked for the journey, once you actually get there, you will find a very well maintained and organised public transport network. Not only is there a mini train that goes around the resort, but for journeys outside it’s parameter, a bus service is available, running at frequent intervals, often on the hour. Bus timings can be found on the internet or at bus stops themselves.

Upon reaching your accommodation, you can use local transport links which are well maintained. It is possible to get a mini train which goes around the resort in the day time and in the early evening. There is also a west coast bus service for travelling to the east from where further connections can be made, towards Mahon in particular.

Cala’n Blanes is a special favourite of the British which is why it is possible to get UK-based items from shops and supermarkets, as well other holiday necessities. If you are interested in designer labels or local craftwork, it is advised that you make your way to the nearby town of Ciutadella.

The coast around the resort is quite rugged and rocky, but the beach is the best on the island and extremely crowded during the summer months and especially on weekends. However, if a vibrant atmosphere is what you’re looking for, it is definitely the place to be.
