Cala Galdana is a lovely village situated on the south of the island of Menorca, It is an area of stunning scenery with pine clad tree’s and hills and steep valleys, just perfect for walkers or for those wanting to explore the stunning countryside around this region.

Daytimes in Cala Galdana are usually spent relaxing on the beach, the beach is perfect, with soft golden sand, gently shelving into crystal clear waters. The beach is sheltered by pine clad hills, making the water calm and shallow, simply perfect for little ones wanting a paddle. Many holidays also enjoy the snorkelling and diving around these parts with the water being crystal clear and warm. For those feeling more adventurous, there is an excellent water sports centre offering pedallos, water skiing, jet skiing, banana rides and ringos to name but a few. The beach remains uncrowded even during high season and there are plenty sun loungers and parasols to hire. There is also a good selection of beach bars, cafés and restaurants near the beach for a break from the midday sun.

Evenings in Cala Galdana are pretty low key. There are bars and cafés offering family friendly entertainment and occasional happy hours, but most people tend to spend their evenings enjoying a romantic meals in one of the restaurants, maybe al fresco and all washed down with local wine. For those who fancy something a little bit livelier, you can take a short trip into nearby Cala ‘n Bosch or Son Bou where the ambience is much busier and the choice much bigger. Shopping is a great thing to do on an evening once the temperatures have dropped, and nearby Ferreries has a wonderful late market where you can pick up some lovely holiday souvenirs and bargains.

Menorca has so many fabulous places to visit and Cala Galdana is well situated for getting out and about and seeing the island. Everyone should take in Mahon, it suits all, firstly the culture vultures who will love wandering around the cobbled streets, with ancient buildings, the medieval fortress and the museums and monuments. Then Mahon is big on shopping with many, many shops, boutiques and souvenir stalls and the marina is particularity popular for wining and dining too. There are water parks in resort and larger ones a short drive, providing young and young at heart with a fun day out. The location is perfect for going to see the “dancing horse” of Andalusia, a truly magnificent performance between man and beast. There’s so much to see, and something to suit everyone’s taste and budget.
