With six pools, kids’ clubs, and plenty of family-friendly entertainment, parents and children will love the Talayot Apartments. For active types, there’s a football pitch, volleyball and mini-golf, while adrenaline-seeking youngsters can try out the go-carts. There’s also a playground where little ones can let off some steam. Food-wise, you’ll find plenty of choices – so there’s no need to worry about fussy eaters. You’ll find everything from paella and pizza, to pasta and salads, as well as child-friendly favourites such as burgers and hotdogs.

Overview of Menorca

Though Menorca is somewhat smaller than its big sister island, Majorca, its charm certainly makes up for this. With a chilled-out vibe, which attracts both couples and families, Menorca hits the spot with plentiful sunshine, pleasing beaches, and a winning atmosphere that’s conducive to relaxation. Menorca’s western shores offer an appealing cocktail of beach life and history. The former capital, Ciutadella, for example, is a popular day-trip, with its narrow streets and shady squares offering a glimpse of bygone times. Add to this, family-oriented resorts such as Cala’n Forcat, where the Talayot Apartments are situated, and it’s easy to see why holidays to Menorca have such enduring appeal.

Things to do in Cala’n Forcat

Stay at the Talayot Apartments and you’ll be just down the street from the resort centre of Cala’n Forcat, where you’ll find a small selection of cafes and restaurants. And there’s plenty to keep the kids happy, with amusements and bars welcoming of all ages. There’s also a mini train, which connects to Cala’n Blanes and Los Delfines if you feel like a change of scene. The main focus of the resort is the small-but-inviting beach, where diving is a popular pursuit.

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.
