If you like cosy bays, decent seafood and waterfront strolls, then you're barking up the right tree with Cala Bona holidays.

Beside the seaside

Cala Bona fits into a little nook in Majorca’s east coast. And this former fishing village knows how to work its seafront spot. All eyes are on the water – whether it’s swigging wine in a bar by the harbour or chillaxing on one of the sandy beaches. Plus, it’s buddied up with Cala Millor next door, which brings a beefed-up beach to the table.

Bona fide bays

When the first few tourists started to trickle in, this place shipped sand to its trio of coves. They’re all protected by manmade breakwaters, which keep the sea nice and calm, and R&R is top of the agenda. For strapping sands, neighbouring Cala Millor should do the trick. And the same goes for watersports and glass-bottomed boat trips.

Chilled days

If you’re not by the beach, chances are you’re harbourside. Cala Bona’s dinky marina’s brimming with bars and restaurants – from Thai kitchens and British pubs to seafood restaurants that deliver a proper taste of Spain. Tucked behind that, you’ve got every kid’s idea of heaven, Fantasy Park. A 10-minute drive south, there’s family-friendly Sa Coma, and you’ll reach the Caves of Drach a little further along.
