Cala Bona, Majorca

Cala Bona Resort Guide

Cala Bona is a lovely family resort, retaining the charm of its origins as a traditional fishing village, yet offering plenty of facilities for holiday makers of all ages.

Cala Bona

Like many of Majorca's popular resorts, Cala Bona was originally a traditional fishing village, and has transformed over the last few decades into a delightful family resort.

Situated on the east coast of Majorca, close to Cala Millor, the resort enjoys fabulous scenery and three gorgeous sandy beaches.

Cala Bona is about 65km (approximately 40 miles) from Palma Airport, and the journey over to this part of the east coast can take up to two hours.

Popular with British holiday makers, Cala Bona has plenty of attractions to keep everyone entertained, yet retains a traditional Spanish flavour, helped in part by the fact that it has retained a small working harbour. This also means that the seafood restaurants are amazing!

Cala Bona has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and it well suited to families.There are plenty of bars and restaurants of every variety. The promenade stretches all the way to Cala Millor too, with shops and bars along the way, or just enjoy the amazing views towards the Punta De'n Amer headland, which offers a remote and special viewpoint among Mallorcan flora, pines and craggy rocks.

Cala Bona means 'the good bay' and it certainly lives up to its name: stretching for 2km towards Cala Millor, the sand on each of the beaches is white and soft, and the sea is warm and crystal clear. The sand slopes gently into the sea here, so it's a great, safe place for families with young children. There are plenty of watersports facilities such as scuba diving, windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing and fishing, and you can hire sunbeds and parasols on the beach. You can take trips on glass bottomed boats from Cala Bona, so you can enjoy views into the sparkling clear sea.

If you enjoy exploring, Cala Bona has a few original narrow streets to explore, as well as the picturesque harbour area. There are also some protected areas of special environmental interest close by, for nature lovers.

For exploring a little further afield, it's possible to catch a bus from Cala Bona to Alcudia. If you have access to a car, you could take a day trip to Sa Coma, S'Illot or Porto Cristo, all of which are easily accessible from Cala Bona.


“Charming beach resort on the east coast, with a working harbour and tourist facilities aplenty.”
