Exceptional Mediterranean Sea views



Updated: 28-Nov-2016
Apartment in Cala en Porter, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Above The Beach

The apartment Binimarina is part of a quaint apartment block built into the cliff and accessed from the public steps to the wonderful beach of Cala en Porter. Because of its location, the view from its terrace is superb, during the all day, all year round. The Mediterranean Sea with its blue shades is perfectly framed by an uspoilt green cape. However, if steps are a problem this is not a suitable location.

About the Owner

Since we came to Menorca we have been in love with this mysterious, peaceful, secret island. Menorca is beautiful, well preserved, safe, clean and quiet.

An incredibly relaxing place with the best beaches in the Balearic islands. Criminality is negligible, there is a cult for cleanliness and nature is very well looked after.

Being an agricultural island, food can be fantastic.

Arriving from the plane you will enjoy the 'ancient drawing' made by dry stone walls that surround wild land, where everything seems to grow.

Lemon trees, luscious bouganvilleas, yucca trees, agaves and all the aromatics, like lavender, rosemary, mint, the wonderful capers plant and wild fleur-de-lis that adorn the unspoiled beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My mam and I stayed in this apartment for a week as a treat for my 30th birthday and we were blown away by the stunning views on the balcony. The apartment is in a perfect location less then five mins to the beach and the same Upto the bars and restaurants. My mam and I both loved relaxing on the gorgeous beach which was very quiet and and swimming quite far out in the crystal clear sea. The apartment is very homely and well equipped for people of all ages. We particularly liked the big walk in wardrobe and there was plenty of space for the two of us. We visited the cave bar/ nightclub and have to say was fantastic definitely worth a look, we walked there and you get some great views from the top ideal for a picture moment. I would also recommend the restaurant El Pulpo lush food we ended up going three times! Will definitely be back at some point only negative would be all those steps which can be quite hard in the heat of the day! Worth it for the view though!

My Response

Thank you very much for the precious tips on Cala en Porter. Steps could be exhausting but as you pointed out the view from the terrace is fantastic. I like particularly the stunning contrast between Mediterranean blue and deep green of the untouched cliff at the right side of Binimarina.

Balcony with a view

  • 5 of 5

Binimarina is a little piece of heaven. Sitting on the balcony with a drink in hand watching the sunset has to be one of the nicest things to do. In fact the balcony is always in the sun. Cala en porter is a delightful town with a beautiful azure coloured bay.There are numerous bars and restaurants to choose from in the town.

The apartment is charming and very comfortable and homely. It has everything you need for a lovely peaceful holiday.This was our second visit and we've already requested a booking for next year.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a wonderful, relaxing holiday in this apartment. The view really is exceptional as the listing says and we spent a lot of time just relaxing on the balcony. The apartment was lovely and clean and had all the equipment etc you need for your holiday .... the 'walk-in' wardrobe was a treat even though we didn't fill it ;-) I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment, but like the other reviews have mentioned, would just bare in mind the steps for access. Thank you Michaela for a lovely holiday.

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

Simply the best view over Cala'n Porter. The apartment was faultless and Michaela was most helpful with every detail covered.

We have no hesitation in recommending this fabulous apartment to anyone but be mindful there are a number of steps to climb!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comment and for stressing two very important factors. Number of steps to climb, and after that, as a reward, a breathtaking - and private- view over the Mediterranean.

La vista estupenda!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thought this apartment fitted its description so accurately. The view from the large and secluded balcony is as good as shown on the photographs. The sun shone onto the balcony from 9.00am to 8.00pm early September.) The living room is comfortable and with the view, but we did not need it as our weather was so good. The kitchen is well equipped and we used it for preparing breakfasts and lunches which we ate on the balcony, but ate out in the restaurants each night. The shower is powerful. The bed is large and comfortable. The support from the owner and her local contact was excellent. We love sea swimming and this beach suited us as it was safe and clean and although crowded at certain times there was a peaceful atmosphere. This was reflected also in the bars and restaurants where service and prices were very fair. It takes about 4 minutes to get to the beach and 8 minutes to get to the bars and restaurants and so as long as you are able to climb the steps it is ideally situated. A great place to be and we will return!

Fab time had by all

  • 5 of 5

We have just got home from a 2 week stay at the Binimarina. Michaela, the owner, was there when we arrived, we were early but she let us drop our bags in to the apartment and then we took ourselves off for a coffee while they finished sorting the apartment for us. When dropping off our bags, my daughter ran up to see her sleeping space quickly and was delighted with her area, claiming : "This is REALLY what I expected!"

The view really is breath taking and it is the most perfect location, right on top of the beach, which is beautiful. There are a few café/restaurants at the bottom of the stairs, but if you go to the top you come in to Cala en Porter where there numerous Bars / Restaurants / Supermarkets to choose from.

We will be back at some point as Cala en Porter itself is so lovely and unspoiled and everyone there is really friendly. Nicest / easiest holiday for quite a few years.

Owner's Response: Thank you Christine for your review: it describes perfectly the village. Cala en Porter is surrounded by unspoilt nature, and its position on top of a beautiful cliff offers stunning views of the bay with blue, transparent waters and a well organised sandy beach.
