Discover the secrets of Cala Blanca on this sea kayaking excursion in Menorca.
Considered one of the most beautiful shorelines the Balearic Islands have to offer, the little harbour of Fornells is a gateway to the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve – a dramatic landscape of towering cliffs, smuggler’s coves and deserted bays that can only be explored from the tide line. Head out on open-top kayaks for a paddle classic to the infamous Cala Blanca.
The activity base is situated in Fornells (not to be mistaken with Playas de Fornells) on the northern coast of Menorca. Close to the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Balearic Islands, this harbour town has a 2km stretch of beach from Cala Tirant to Cala Blanca on the south end of the bay.
Meet your guide at the activity base in Fornells for this sea kayaking excursion along the north Menorcan shoreline. Suited to groups of friends and families alike, this half-day excursion follows the cliff line to Cala Blanca on the southern end of the bay.
Starting off from the private harbour, your guide will demonstrate a few essential paddle techniques and safety points before you start travelling along the bay – learning more about the region’s cultural legacy and natural history. A landscape protected by UNESCO, the waters teem with marine life and the shore is punctuated with deep caves that are visible at low tide allowing you to paddle in and take a look around.
One of the highlights of this excursion is the secret beaches that make a great place to stop for a swim or go snorkelling thanks to the crystal clear visibility and safe, shallow waters. A scenic tour, return back to Fornells where you will moor up along the harbour, and your adventure will end.
A family-friendly guided tour organised at a leisurely pace, this trip is suitable for total beginners – using open-top kayaks. Both single and double seater kayaks are available – with doubles able to fit two small children.
