Cala Blanca is 5km from Ciutadella, between the wide bay of and s’Aigo Dolça. There is an urbanization of the same name, which originates from the colour of the sand. The beach is small and surrounded by low rocks. There are pine-trees and a little dune system at the back, and some cafes over the water. Holiday complexes and houses are all close by. There is a light breeze from the west and the water is clear and calm. This beach is very popular with both locals and tourists.

Mooring small boats is fine here. To the left side of the entrance there is an islet called Illot de Cala Blanca. The Cap d’Artrutx marina is 2.5 nautical miles away. There are a lot of interesting archaeological deposits and remains close by - the caves of Parella, grottos with stalactites and stalagnites and an interior lake, and the ruins of a naveta dating back to 2000 to1200 BC, which was the typical habitat between the pretalayotic and early talayotic era in western Menorca. These sites are not open to the public.

Access by road is easy and well marked . There is free parking and a bus service which stops close by.
