A secluded strip of paradise

Cala'n Porter beach is sheltered by cliff faces from the breezes of the Mediterranean which means it is ideal if you're planning a family holiday to Menorca with little ones who love to paddle. The beach begins shallow and slowly deepens, so grown ups can go for a proper swim while kids splash around and build sand castles back at shore.

The beach is as wide as it is deep but good things come in small packages, and you can be confident you won't tire of Cala'n Porter beach in a hurry. If you make the trip – 200 steps down from the main resort – there's little reason to leave all the day as you'll be enjoying watersports, bars and great food at the restaurants lining the beach.

Leaving from the centre of Cala'n Porter, it runs regularly throughout the week until 8pm. You can take advantage of the clubs, bars and live music venues in Mahon and take a taxi back, which will cost no more than 10 or 15 euros.

They're perfect for that last minute souvenir or bottle of gin to take home with you. If you're looking for some truly great international and fusion, Mahon has you covered.
