About the Owner
Having holidayed in Cala'n Porter for 13 years we found our apartment in 2006. Menorca has some of the most beautiful beaches in the Med and swimming in the Cala'n Porter bay is pure pleasure. Over the years we had given our kids the opportunity to choose other locations for our annual summer break but they always chose to go back to a place they had come to view as a second home, where they knew their way around and felt absolutely safe, knew how the transport worked and had their own favourite activities. Now we get out there at least twice each year and they holiday there independently (even our son who lives in Australia). We're happy to share it with others when it's not being used by us
From the Owner
“Cala'n Porter is a safe, friendly resort only a short bus ride from the bustling capital and port of Mahon with its shops, markets and restaurants. When eating out do try the Menu del dia (Menu of the Day), they offer great value and children are always welcome and catered for. There are a couple of car hire places in Cala'n Porter if you want to explore the island and there is a copy of the Menorca Guide in the apartment for your use while you visit with us. The island has a fascinating geography and history so if you want more than just a 'beach' holiday it is ideal and there are dozens of unspoilt beaches to explore. All kinds of water sports can be found around the island, along with tennis, golf, go karting, and Trotting Race meetings. No-one should be bored!”
Activity and Interests
The beach is a 10 minute walk away by steps down the cliffside or 15 minutes by steep winding road.
Cala’n Porter is only a 15 minute drive from Mahon airport but because of its location does not suffer from any airport noise. Taxi fares from the airport are around 30 euros or you can arrange your own rental car to be available on arrival. Buses run regularly from the resort into Mahon linking with other bus services to various parts of the island. A timetable is available in the apartment.
On the beach at Calan' Porter there are sun lounges, parasols and pedaloes for hire. Son Parc golf course is within 30 minutes drive of the apartment. At nearby resorts and towns you will find a water sports park, scuba diving, sailing, horse riding, Go-karting, horse trotting races and various activities to suit all tastes. Details of all these activities can be found in the free tourist brochure available at the various bars and supermarkets.
Cala’n Porter town centre is only a few minutes walk from the apartment where there are supermarkets, bars, restaurants, a chemist and a selection of other speciality shops. The bars in the town offer evening entertainment and the Cova d’Xoroi caves offer late night Club entertainment but because of its location in the cliffside causes no inconvenience to those wanting an earlier night!

From the Owner
“The apartment is centrally located, close to all amenities but you are not disturbed by the more lively nightspots of the resort and the pool is great. Even in peak summer it doesn't get crowded and you can actually swim in it, rather than just splash about, so if you are using your holiday as a time to take some exercise a few laps each day will set you up. There is a secure paddling pool at one end and plenty of sun lounges available in shade provided by fixed umbrellas. The balcony affords a view over the gardens and pool and is a delightful place to enjoy an early evening drink and watch the sun disappear over the horizon. Or you could choose to enjoy that same drink by the pool or at one of the many bars in the town where major sporting events are televised.”
