Holidays to Cala'n Bosch mean a pretty little beach, some smart shopping – and all sorts of fun for the kids.

A smarty pants

As purpose-built resorts go, Cala’n Bosch fits into the Balearic Island of Menorca’s southwest coast beautifully. What you’ve got here is whitewashed hotels and terracotta-topped villas that give the place that traditional Balearic feel. Its centrepiece is a smart marina ringed with restaurants and bars, though the cute-as-a-button beach gets plenty of the limelight, too.

Sandy beach

The beach at Cala’n Bosch is small but perfectly formed. You get fine white sands that shelve gently into the calm waters of a sheltered bay, so it’s a great spot for families. There are plenty of sunloungers around to hire and you’ve got food and drink places 2 minutes away at the marina. If you’re looking for watersports, though, Son Xoriguer Beach is just a 10-minute walk away.

Family focused

Cala’n Bosch is a good spot for families. Over by the marina you’ve got Goody Goody Park, which comes with indoor amusement games, a bouncy castle, ball pit, trampolines, bumper cars, the works. Then there’s the resort’s waterpark, Aquarock Menorca. And if you want more, just up the road you’ve got a paintballing place.

Close to Ciutadella

Twenty minutes’ drive and you’re in Ciutadella. It might not have the kudos of a capital any more – Mahon took over that job a while back – but it’s no slouch in the shop department. You’ve got modern boutiques here and if you fancy a pair of avarcas – those Menorcan leather and rubber sandals – you’ve certainly come to the right place.
