Globales Club Almirante Farragut Hotel

Enjoying a cliff-top location while still being close to the beach, the Globales Almirante Farragut Hotel is a family-friendly haven with a difference. A large split-level pool, sunny terrace and excellent buffet restaurant ensure that days spent within the complex are comfortable and fun, but the location makes wider exploration so simple, too. A very short walk from the resort centre, the Globales Almirante Farragut Hotel also offers almost instant access to the beach through its landscaped gardens. Fresh, generous bedrooms guarantee a good night’s sleep, and although this is a large complex, it has a charmingly close-knit feel.

Overview of Cala’n Forcat

Holidays to Menorca are wonderful and are sometimes overshadowed by trips to the larger Majorca. Though small in size, Menorca has a great variety of regions to explore, balancing vibrant towns with sleepier villages to create the perfect blend of fun and relaxation. Found in the western part of Menorca, Cala’n Forcat is a fun and family-orientated resort that offers up an incredibly beautiful beach, great food and a host of things to do with kids. There’s a very welcoming and friendly vibe to this charming resort, though neighbouring towns are within easy reach for some different days out.

Things to do in Cala’n Forcat

The beach in Cala’n Forcat is a sight to behold. Nestled into a rocky inlet, it might be small, but it is so pretty that you won’t care about its size, even if it gets a little busy. A narrow stretch of sand leads down to beautifully clear and shallow waters and the wooden jetty usually has some quaint fishing boats moored to it, too. Cala’n Forcat really is all about the kids, as any stroll around town will prove. You’ll find a waterpark, multiple playgrounds, a mini-golf course and even a karting track that will spoil them for choice. The resort also has plenty of evening entertainment to enjoy. Tapas bars, restaurants serving international cuisine, British pubs and charming bars are all waiting to help you while away a few hours, but without the hustle and bustle of any large nightclubs.

Resort Summary

The beach here is small but offers something a little different from your usual holiday hotspot as its set in a long, rocky inlet ripe for snorkelling. The water stays shallow a long way out into the cove so is ideal for paddling and playing with young children. Further down there are platforms along the rocks for sunbathing and diving in to the sea.

Accessed by steps, the cove has a quaint walkway with hand-carved wooden railings, from which you can look down into the clear waters. There is a dive centre here whose instructors will teach anyone from beginners and take you on a trip to see the underwater caves, flora and fauna of western Menorca.
