Just a simple Google image search of Cala'n Forcat will bring up hundreds of photos of clear aqua waters, craggy cliffs and mind-blowing luxury resorts. Indeed, holidays to Cala'n Forcat are exactly that - and much more. On the very western tip of Menorca , Cala'n Forcat is a picturesque resort town popular with couples and families. The Balearic Islands have gained a reputation as a party paradise thanks to the best known island, Ibiza. However, Menorca is worlds away from the 24-hour clubs ' here you'll find still calm waters, soft sandy beaches and friendly locals. Cala'n Forcat is one of the busier towns on the island, giving you and the kids endless options of things to do - from watersports and aquaparks, to souvenir shopping and local restaurants.
Menorca's former capital of Ciutadella is just a 10 minute drive away from Cala'n Forcat and is a great day trip if you're looking to immerse yourself in Spanish culture. The main town has several historic cathedrals and palaces, while the ancient Old Town features distinctive Gothic-style buildings and medieval architecture. Stop for a fruit-laden sangria along the cobbled alleyways, or stay for a seafood feast at one of the delicious harbour front restaurants.
If you feel like venturing further afield, the capital of Mahon is also worth a visit. Mao, as it's known to locals, is famous for its harbour, the second largest natural deep water port in the world after Pearl Harbor. Mao is also an important environmental reserve, with 75% of the territory protected. If you're lucky, you might be able to spot endangered turtles, birds and other unusual animals.
Find the hidden beaches
Cala'n Forcat actually shares its prime coastal position with the towns of Cala'n Blanes and Los Delfines. There are three main beaches ' two coves at the northern end of the resort and one at Cala'n Blanes. Cala'n Blanes is undoubtedly the biggest (and busiest), while the other two are largely untouched. You'll have to climb down some rocky steps to reach the northern two, or else you can take the touristic mini-train through the town to Cala'n Blanes. The train ride itself is a great way to see all of Cala'n Forcat in one go. The water at all three beaches is calm and shallow - ideal for children and snorkelers.
Go to the aquaparks
There are two water parks near Cala'n Forcat, each with its own nerve-wracking collection of slides, water tunnels, whirlpools, go-karting tracks, trampolines and video arcades. The closest is the Aqua Center in Cala'n Blanes, while Aqua Rock is further south of Ciutadella in the seaside resort of Cala'n Bosch.
