Cala Galdana, known affectionately as the Queen of the Calas, is one of the most picturesque resorts in Menorca. On the south coast of the island, it’s a small, family-friendly set-up, built around a perfectly symmetrical horseshoe cove. Through the middle of the village runs the Algendar Gorge, which has a tiny port criss-crossed by wooden gangways.
Cala Galdana lays claim to Menorca’s best-looking beach. With shallow turquoise water, cashmere-soft white sand, and sheer limestone cliffs providing the backdrop, it’s got a real Caribbean feel to it. There are watersports and bars on the beach, and it’s backed by a long prom. Walk along the cliffs, though, and you’ll get to secluded Cala Mitjana, where the snorkelling is first-class.
Cala Galdana doesn’t have tonnes of rustic charm, but makes up for it with its family-friendly attractions. It has one of Menorca’s best horse shows at the Club Escola Menorquina. There’s a children’s disco every night under the stars. And you’ve got restaurants that offer up playgrounds, waterslides and a mini-golf.
Close to Ferreries
Just 10 minutes’ drive from Cala Galdana is Ferreries, a sleepy Balearic town that’s famous for its shoes and furniture. Three times a week it has a farmers’ market where you can pick up local cheese and honey. And on the outskirts of town is the Castle of Santa Agueda, a fort built by the Arabs in the 13th-century.
