Family Snorkelling

The pristine waters of Menorca are a real holiday memory. They are amazingly clear so even with just a simple snorkel you will see lots, not murky haze. And because the water is in such good condition you'll see lots of fish too. Many, many of the resort beaches have shallow sandy bottoms fringed with rocks, ideal for young snorkellers. Organised trips can take you to spectacular places by boat for extra special Snorkel.

This stretch of coast features wrecks and caverns.

Diving

With few currents, warm crystal clear waters, many underwater caves and coral-clad rock formations, Menorca is recognised as one of the most enjoyable dive sites in the western Mediterranean.

Cycle Route Ideas

Like most of Menorca this is more Natural, so don't expect too many cycle lanes. Better to use the off road tracks and marked routes as the little roads that make up much of the country network have lots of blind corners.

Cala en Porter is surrounded by pristine countryside criss-crossed with a network of tiny paths ( including official signed routes)  camis and of course the increasingly famous Cami de Cavalls cosatal path which runs through cala en Porter

TIP western direction of Cami de Cavalls towards Son bou is more negotitable with mountain bike than eastwards to Es Canutells.

MTB in the valley behind the beach follow cami de cavalls route but turn - right see our maps

Calas Coves ( Calas Covas )

A beautiful picturesque spot, favoured by visiting yachts and dreamers. Best visited early mornings and evenings, where the light brings out the scenery. An exciting place for youngsters, dreamy of pirates as the local burial caves up in the limestone walls and rambling cove walks let their imaginations run free. Believed to be an ancient burial ground and was in fact the very first recognised port of Menorca as used by the Romans when they occupied the island. Can be reached on foot from Cala en Porter along various paths or park and walk at Son Vitamina (approx. 30 mins). Road down is NOT suitable for hire cars unless you want to pay for suspension damage! On the Cami di Cavalls route.
