If you’re looking for a laid back Majorca holiday, one that includes rustic elements and a small-town feel with boutique shopping and local dining, then look no further than the resort of Cala Bona. Built in a relaxed fishing town that has been there for hundreds of years, right at the harbour, enjoy access to tiny beach enclaves, cafes, and lunches at waterfront spots that are nestled along the original winding streets.
Instead of the never-ending kilometres of beachfront that can go on forever, Cala Bona is more so known for a patchwork of small sandy spots that are divided by manmade rocky coves. In total, there are 2 kilometres of beachfront areas to work with, helping guests to find a little spot that is all their own, without the massive tourist influxes.
Coupled with a flair for modern style and twist, Cala Bona also includes pedestrianised sidewalks and travel routes, a modern centre with shops and bars, and access to amenities that will make your beach stay convenient and as enjoyable as possible. On the waterfront, stroll the promenade filled with shops, bars, and eateries that exist along the calm water’s edge.
As opposed to the Ibiza and Palma counterparts, Cala Bona is not filled with the neon lights and partying until the wee hours of the morning. Instead, enjoy time at harbour front bars and pubs, with soft music and live performances, as well as karaoke. If you fancy something more exciting, walk just 15 minutes to Cala Millor where you can enter the clubs and discos at your leisure.
Of course, don’t forget to take a day trip to the Caves of Drach on Majorca, where you can immerse yourself in a settling of stalagmites and stalactites that of course, provide a backdrop for some of the most beautiful photos ever taken.
Contrary to other bustling centres located on Majorca, Cala Bona has distinguished itself from the competition as a quieter, sleepier, and more relaxed Balearic Island getaway. That means you won’t find the DJs spinning until breakfast, or the clubs that spill out their foam parties in the street. But what you will find is:
Of course, don’t feel like you can’t have the crazy EDM night you always dreamed of. With just a quick walk to Cala Millor, you can dance the night away at some of the most iconic dance bars and venues in all of Majorca.
One of the best parts of Cala Bona is that it is quiet and serene at night, ensuring you will receive some of the most restful sleep of your life!
Cala Bona comes with plenty of authentic Spanish dining opportunities, boasting award-winning seafood restaurants and bars, sangria, paella for days, and fruity cocktails that are made with locally sourced ingredients:
Like the rest of Majorca, Cala Bona comes with its fair share of activities. Whether you want to stay local, drive 15-minutes away, or go on a day trip, there is plenty to see and do, both in and out, of the hot Spanish sun:
Between Cala Bona and Cala Millor, you have 2 kilometres of sandy beachfronts to work with. Unlike the neighbouring towns and cities, Cala Bona does not have expansive, massive untouched white beaches with no end in sight. Instead, the fishing village keeps things quainter with sporadic openings of small beaches, saddled with rocks and natural oceanic finds.
At Cala Bona, you’ll find a calmer ocean and current, making it a much more relaxed and laid back beaching experience. If you really spend time scouring the little beach enclaves at your fingertips, you can find coves and hidden hideaways that you can make all your own! Be sure to bring water shoes so as not to injure your feet on the beaches.
For easy day trips, you can make your way to Cala D’or and other destinations on Majorca that come with larger, more expansive beaches. Try the Alcudia Beach if you are looking to engage in surfing or water sports, like parasailing and skim boarding, or Ca’n Picafort Beach for 13 kilometres of white sand beach just staring back at you.
Remember: Cala Bona is a Spanish beach, which means it receives some of the hottest and most direct sunrays in Europe. Plan and pack accordingly so you are prepared for the intensity of the sun.
