Surrounded by rocky inlets, sandy beaches, and pine trees, Cala Blanca is a dreamy sun and beach destination and the ideal spot for an unforgettable family holiday or for a relaxing island getaway. Come here to take a well-deserved break from the daily routine and to experience first-hand the best that western Menorca has to offer.
