Cala Galdana

Menorca’s finest

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.

Royal beach

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.

Modern town

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.
