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. Come here to soak up the sun, book a boat trip, enjoy an al fresco meal, or simply to soak up some atmosphere. Just an hour away from the resort, Alcudia waterpark is a fun alternative to the beach. Or for family-friendly fun a little closer to home, enjoy an unforgettable wildlife experience at Safari Zoo in Sa Coma.
There are several things to do in Cala Bona if you’re with children. For a break from the beach, enjoy a family day out at Safari Zoo in Sa Coma. If you’ve hired a car, you can drive straight through the park’s open terrain where a variety of exotic animals are free to roam. Giraffes, zebras and gazelles are just some of the wildlife you can bump into, but the cheeky monkeys are a particular highlight. Visitors without a car can enjoy the experience from the park’s land train. On particularly hot days, Alcudia waterpark is the perfect place to cool off.
