While many of Spain’s resorts began their lives as fishing villages, Cala Bona in particular retains much of the sleepy, easygoing vibe of a small seafaring settlement. This is thanks largely to its charming harbour, which is still the focus point of the town. Even today, you’ll see a collection of ‘ilaüts’ – traditional Majorcan fishing vessels – bobbing among the other boats on the water.
Cala Bona holidays are also about beaches, of course. It has three – two sandy and one mostly rock – all offering serene, clear waters. Running parallel to the coast is a pleasant promenade, lined with various restaurants and cafés serving the likes of full English breakfasts to the many British holidaymakers. Continue along to the bigger and busier neighbouring resort of Cala Millor and you can enjoy a long, sandy beach and numerous buzzy nightspots – before returning to the peace and quiet of Cala Bona.
