Cala'n Porter Menorca, is one of the islands earliest developed resorts, with its lovely beach cove looked over from some pretty high cliffs.
The village of Cala En Porter, otherwise referred to as Calan Porter or Cala'n Porter, is in the Menorca municipality of Alaior. It is on the south facing coast and its eastern side has many terrace bars, villas and apartments.
In the resort, you will find some great restaurants or well-equipped bars to take a refreshing beer or cocktail. You can't beat an 'Orange Megamix' which consists mainly of vodka and pure orange juice with ice. Bliss!
As Calan Porter is set in its very own cove, the clear waters attract many fish you can watch whilst snorkelling. Because the beach and sea are so shallow for over 100 meters, its a safe beach for young families looked after by lifeguards. When you come out of the sea there are also showers provided along the coast.
The only tricky bit is the walk down the steps, 180 of them when we last counted. This can make it a bit precarious for the very young/old. There is a longer route you can take next to the main road back to Cala'n Porter if you want an easier way back to the resort.
The usual umbrellas are for hire, cost us about €15 which included some sunbeds. This price tends to vary depending on what time in the season you go. You can also play volleyball, hire pedalos, canoes and there is a children's play area. Good amenities on this beach with toilets available and free car parking if you are visiting in a hire car.
If your staying at the resort, there are some great supermarkets, and some even do deliveries if your feeling lazy ;-)
As well as the bars and restaurants, well worth a visit to the nightclub Cova de en Xoroi, or more commonly known locally as The Caves.
This has to be one of the best nightclub locations in the Mediterranean as it is set up on the cliffs with astounding views and a great atmosphere.
Cala en Porter - Great Place!
All in all, Cala'n Porter has it all, and you can even get up and down the hill on its own town train that costs around €3 each way. The kids love it!
