Cala en Blanes is a tranquil cove popular with boaters and swimmers who bathe from the rocks on either side and from the charming small beach, which is shaded by palm trees. It’s a busy place in the summer months and a beach bar adds to the fun. Away from the beach is a bustling holiday resort with shops, supermarkets, bars and the like.
It is the proximity of Cala en Blanes to the centre of Ciutadella (a 12-minute drive) which makes it popular with the discerning holidaymaker. Ciutadella offers an excellent choice of bars and restaurants, and is truly a delight to explore with its narrow cobbled streets, ancient buildings, variety of shops selling local jewellery, food and leather goods, and colourful history. The historic port, with its little fishing boats and sleek yachts, is a great place to dine al fresco.
Mahon airport is a 45-minute drive from the villa.
