Although Majorca is well known for its purpose-built holiday resorts, Cala Bona is something different. Originally a small, fishing village, it’s grown to accommodate the demands from visitors and tourists, but retained most of its original charm and quirks. Away from the palm-fringed beach, you’ll find narrow, winding streets which might be a little challenging to drive through, but provide plenty of opportunity for discovering charming shops and cafés. Cala Bona still has a working harbour and you’ll often see fishermen repairing their nets or preparing for a trip, aided by a cup of strong coffee, with a dash of brandy thrown in for good measure! With a harbour peppered with bobbing boats, excellent restaurants, and some superb shopping to be had, Cala Bona holidays are ideal for families and couples who really want to get away from it all.
Things to do
The waterfront is the heart of Majorca's Cala Bona resort. This is where you’ll find the beach and a lively promenade peppered with shops, bars and eateries. There’s also the opportunity to book a boat-trip to see the underwater side of Majorca. Glass-bottomed boats are immensely popular, giving you a chance to see what’s under the waves without getting wet! For golfing enthusiasts, there are four golf clubs nearby, with the nearest only around 15 minutes away from the town centre. Just an hour away you’ll find Alcudia waterpark, packed with rides, slides, and vast swimming pools. For family-friendly fun a little closer to home, enjoy an unforgettable wildlife experience at Safari Zoo in Sa Coma.
With its hot, dry summers and mild winters, it’s a perfect holiday destination at any time of year.
