Calan Porter Holidays & Hotels

Hotels in Calan Porter

Located on Menorca’s south coast, as far as fantastic holidays go Cala’n Porter has it all. Perched high up on the cliffs with stunning natural views all around it, this wonderful little family-friendly resort looks down to the inviting turquoise sea below.

It’s quite a small place, with only a 20 minute walk from end to end, with most of the bars, restaurants and shops right in the middle. It’s only a very short drive to the airport and capital, Mahon, too. A relaxed little town that’s ideal for young families as well as couples looking for a romantic break in the sun, accommodation here consists of a handful of mid-range hotels and self-catering apartments plus a number of beautiful whitewashed villas looking out over the bay.

Where to stay

Calan Porter beach

The stunning soft sand beach is about 200 steps down the hill from the resort centre, but there’s a little land train running up and down for those who are less mobile. The shore is sheltered by cliffs making it a real suntrap, whilst the sea remains shallow a very long way out so is ideal for children. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available to hire, and the prom that runs parallel with the beach offers a range of little cafes and restaurants. Accommodation here is focused very much around the beach and back up the hill with a good number of pretty villas and apartments to choose from.

Cales Coves

For something really secluded and away from it all, take a 30-minute stroll along the Cami de Cavalls (a well-signposted pretty coastal paths) and you’ll end up on cliffs above the Cales Coves - old burial caves that have been carved out of the rock. You can even work your way down there and have a good look inside! There’s a gorgeous, unspoilt little beach nearby dotted with quaint little villas, many with swimming pools, perfect for kicking back and relaxing in the sun with a good book and a stunning view.

What to see

Calan Porter is a sun-worshipper’s dream with its spectacular beach and wide range of watersports, there’s far more to it than that. In the summer time, head out and enjoy the Calan Porter Fiesta, a lively street party with a horse parade, marching bands, live music, belly dancing and even gospel singing all on show to enjoy. There’s entertainment, games and friendly footie matches for the kids too. It all winds up around midnight with some spectacular fireworks.


Calan Porter is more about family fun than boozy nights out but that certainly doesn’t make it boring! Bar hopping is easy as each place lines the main street. There are discos and karaoke aplenty, plus the hotels have it covered for tribute acts, cabaret and quiz nights. And if you do fancy dancing the night away, the Cova d'en Xoroi club has a resident DJ that will spin the decks ‘til dawn.

What to eat

The restaurants in Calan Porter all run along the main road through town called The Strip. Menus are varied with British favourites like fish and chips alongside Spanish tapas and yummy pizzas. Seafood is the order of the day here though, with local specialities including caldereta de llagosta (a delicious lobster stew) and sepia al forn (baked cuttlefish).

Don’t forget to check out Castillo Sancho Panza on Avinguda Central 75 - it’s a mock-style castle that even has battlements and turrets. Luckily, meals don’t cost a king’s ransom here, with 3-courses, coffee and half a bottle of wine coming in at under 20 euros. The barbecued steaks and seafood are to die for here, and the staff are super friendly.


Around 7pm every Monday and Thursday, the town centre comes alive with pop-up market stalls selling everything from beautiful clothes and souvenirs to handmade jewellery and locally-made shoes. Staying open right until ’til 11pm, why not wander around after dinner for some serious bargain hunting.

Still fantastic and visiting for over 20 years.

Calan Porter is a nice clean resort with plenty of restaurants and a fantastic beach. Close to the airport but no plane noise at all.

My home from home, it feels like.

I love Calan Porter. I love the feel of the place. For me, it isn't an over the top "holiday resort". More a seaside town, that you move to, even only for a week or two. A variety of bars and restaurants, all within easy reach. A nice position on the island, not too far from the airport, but far enough. A great base to explore the island. A fantstic beach, and some stunning views. And the unique Cova den Xoroi.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Easy to get too, easy to find your way around.

Suited our requirements

We know Cala'n Porter very well, and it suits our requirements in Menorca. It has good facilities, restaurants, etc., and although the beach can only be reached via a very steep road down the cliff by car (or numerous steps for the more adventurous), once there, it is worth the effort. Needs better parking facilities however. The resort is well located for the airport (15 minutes), and for getting to other towns on the island.

Calan Porter

Quite disappointed as you need a car to get around. The beach is not as wonderful as we have been told as is very small. Not much to do as only a few restaurants and shops mainly supermarkets.
