Cala Bona, Majorca (Mallorca), Balearic Islands, Spain
Cala Bona Beach and a Seafront Cafe
Cala Bona Location
On the east coast of Majorca, approximately 80km from Palma
Cala Bona retains a colourful harbour, and its narrow streets are lined with attractive bars and open-air cafes. The 17th-century watch-tower on the Punta de n’Amer headland is in easy reach as a day-trip. Porto Cristo is a short drive south. There's a pretty harbour and plenty of waterside cafes, but that's not what brings the visitors - the magnificent Caves of Drach are just outside the village. Arta, to the north of Cala Bona, has one of the best views of Majorca from the fortress church at the top of the town.
Package holiday transfer time
1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes
Tourists of all nationalities are very welcome in pretty Cala Bona, and enjoy splashing about on the small beaches, tucked between rocky outcrops. When the sun sets, head for one of the many bars for a glass of wine, then pick a restaurant for dinner. Like its neighbours, Cala Bona is quieter in spring and late summer and life is never too vigorous, even in high season.
Cala Bona offers small beaches between rocky outcrops and although some are man-made, they offer fine stretches of golden sand for sunbathing
The weekly market at Son Servera is not to be missed.
Cala Bona Marina
Compared with many other resorts in Majorca, Cala Bona's nightlife is pretty low-key. Entertainment tends to be centred on the hotels or quieter bars. For those who need their fix of the bright lights, Cala Millor is only on the doorstep. Many of the British bars play host to evening entertainment. Test your knowledge at a quiz night, place your bets at a race or dazzle the crowd at karaoke.
Originally a small fishing village, Cala Bona still retains the old harbour as its focal point. Fisherman still ply the waters and bring home the catches of the day that regularly feature on local menus. Pass an evening relaxing in one of the open-air cafes that surround this pleasant and traditional heart of the resort
Cala Bona Seafront
Cala Bona, combined with its immediate neighbour Cala Millor, offers a massive range of eating options, from french fries at a good value fast-food joint to fresh fish at an expensive waterfront restaurant. Chinese, Italian and Indian cuisine can also be found - it's almost possible to enjoy a meal from a different continent each night of your stay.
