Essentially a holiday village, older and marginally more interesting than the modern (1990), purpose-built resort of Cala Blanca, to which Santandria is joined.
Hourly bus (daytime) between Cala'n Bosch, Ciudadela and Cala'n Forcat.
Location: On the W side of the island, 2 mls S of Ciudadela. 30 mls NW of Minorca's capital city Mahon and the airport.
Position: On a W-facing coast, on mainly level ground. A pine-fringed cove engulfed by a well-developed resort area.

Lovely, small coastal inlets of Cala Blanca, Santandria and Sa Caleta have fine, gently shelving sandy beaches protected by rocky sides.
Daytime: mainly beach based; minigolf.
Nightlife: night club; a few music bars, karaoke and British-style pubs; hotels organise occasional entertainment.
