Embrace Your Britishness
There are lots of British bars and restaurants to choose from in Cala’n Forcat, but because this is low key Menorca, thankfully they come without the off-putting lager lout reputation. And it’s not just the availability of chips that makes dining with kids a doddle here – lots of places lay on great children’s entertainment.
Sunbathe Like A Seal
Cala’n Forcat’s tiny beach may be small but its safe, shallow waters create a perfect bay to enjoy paddling and swimming with the kids. When you’ve finished your dip, grab a spot on the surrounding rocks for an afternoon snooze, seal-style – they make fantastic sunbathing platforms and bases for snorkelers.
Culture in Ciutadella
These days the capital of Menorca is Mahon, but the former capital of Ciutadella is widely considered to be far more beautiful. Culture vultures will love exploring the historic museums and churches, but if shopping for quality souvenirs is more your thing, just follow the cobbled streets until you find something tempting.
Splash the Day Away
The resorts of Cala’n Forcat, Cala’n Blanes and Los Delfines all run into each other, so no visit to Cala’n Forcat is complete without a day at the Aqua Center waterpark in Los Delfines. It might not keep hard-to-please teens happy all day but there’s plenty here for a full day out for younger families.
