Cala Bona – Majorca

 

Transfer Time – 1 Hours 15 minutes

Best For – Couples looking for a relaxing resort, family friendly too.

Cala Bona is a perfect holiday destination for those wishing to bask in the sunshine, or enjoy sitting alongside the harbour and watch the locals working away and watching the world go by. A beautiful resort with stunning scenery and some lovely walks.

The beach in Cala Bona is a selection of small, private coves offering seclusion, peace and quiet, soft golden sand, gently shelving into the Mediterranean. The beaches here are popular with divers and snorkellers, with the rocky coves a perfect location for underwater marine life. The beach is perfect for families too, with the gentle shallow waters, making it a safe environment for children to play. There is also plenty sun loungers and parasols for hire and a selection of beach side cafés, snack bars and restaurants to escape the midday sunshine and have a spot of lunch. Cala Millor is easily reached too for those looking for water sports, it is within walking distance, however, the local buses and taxis offer a cheap alternative.

The evenings in Cala Bona are generally relaxed, a meal overlooking the harbour, eating the fabulous choice of freshly caught fish or beautiful local produce and all washed down with one of the locally produced wines too. There are a good selection of international restaurants too, ranging from Chinese, Italian and Indian, to name but a few. There are a choice of pubs, bars and cocktails bars offering a lovely ambiance and a fairly friendly feel, perfect to round off your evenings. Again, for a livelier evening, Cala Millor is the neighbouring resort, with a much larger selection of cafés, restaurants, bars and even a nightclub or two.

There is a fabulous market, slightly inland from Cala Bona, in Son Servera, many locals even come here for local produce, and is a popular choice for holiday makers to pick up there holiday souvenirs. The resort of Cala Bona is perfectly located to get out and about and see the sights of Majorca. Maybe enjoy a boat trip around the island, enjoying many small coves and villages, only reached by boat, or take a trip to the Caves of Drach, see the amazing stalactites and stalagmites in an underground lake and visit the Port of Monte Cristo on the same trip. There is a fabulous water park nearby too, fun for all the family, young and old. Or take in the historical old town of Alcudia with its winding cobbled streets, museums and historical walls.

There is so much to do in Majorca, but many come to Cala Bona to do absolutely nothing, except enjoy the peace and quiet, lovely beaches and perfect little restaurants on an evening. Perfect things really do come in small packages.
