The Best of the Bays
Cala Bona is situated on the east coast of the beautiful Balearic island of Majorca. Cala Bona means simply ‘the best bay’, though there is some local competition as its neighbour Cala Millor is referred to as ‘the better bay’! Connecting these two towns is a couple of kilometres of sandy beaches and together they form a much sought after resort. Cala Bona is a traditional fishing village that has gradually been developed into a tourist destination. The working fishing port is a sure sign that this area has retained its identity and heritage. Whether you want to simply lounge on a sandy beach or swim in the pristine blue seas around the isle, Cala Bona holidays are guaranteed to be memorable.
Where to Stay
Holidays to Cala Bona offer you a great choice of places to stay. While this is not a place for grandiose resort hotels, there are a few larger establishments that house an extensive range of top of the range facilities. All of the more established hotels have their own pools as well as various onsite entertainment facilities and extensive gardens. Many of the hotels have superb dining facilities, so if you fancy being moderately self-contained you can have a night in and enjoy a delicious meal from the comfort of your temporary home!
Chilling in Cala Bona
Holidays in Cala Bona are ideal for a relaxing beach break away from the hustle of the larger resorts found on the island of Majorca. Despite the great facilities here, the area has not been over developed, attributing to the gentle ambience of the resort. Along the coast at Cala Millor things are a bit more lively, providing the opportunity for a louder night out, though it is by no means a party town. The relatively unspoilt beauty of the area is appealing to many, as is the slow pace of life and the traditional identity of an Spanish island town. The area also hosts a great selection of water sports and a karting track for the more adventurous. Glass bottom boat tours are also a lovely way to view the aquatic scenery, as well as giving you the chance to dive into the beautiful blue sea. The temperature averages around 25C in high summer and it settles at around 21C throughout June and September. Despite being slightly out of the main season in October, the average is still a relatively pleasant 18C.
