Nicknamed "Queen of the Calas" and situated on the south-coast, Cala Galdana has one of the most beautiful serviced beaches on the island. Pine-clad cliffs enclose a large horseshoe bay with turqouise waters and gently shelving beach.Family oriented holiday resort, with beautiful surrounding countryside to explore and good watersports and boating trips.
Sitting in perhaps the island's most photographed cove Cala Galdana is a firm beach and resort favourite on Menorca. This beautiful cove was formed by the small river Algendar and today still defines the resort, splitting it literally into two distinct areas. On the westerly side, the main commercial area along with hotels and apartments extending up the hill. To the east is the main beach, which with the exception of a beach side hotel is an atractive set of residential and holidays villas overlooking the bay. This little river still flows into the sea at Cala Galdana and enhances the natural beauty and charm of the resort.
The beach at Cala Galdana is a clasic horshore looking up to attractive 200m high cliffs , the whole being part of pine woodland. The sand falls gently into the waters and while this makes it ideal for the small children the resort is also popular with couples 20-60.
On the beach are water sports - Water sking, snorkelling, kayaking, pedalos and is served by a number of beach side cafe Bar restaurants as well as public toilets and showers.
The commercial area has bars and restaurants for varying tastes and prices, including more authentic mediterranean cuisine. As they are mostly located together it is best to stroll and take the pick of the ones that take your fancy.There are regular bus services to Ciutadella ( 4 time daily ), Ferreries ( 9 times daily ) At Ferreries you can change to other island destinations. How about a late afternoon / evening trip to Ciutadella is a most to stroll around the romantic old city, people watch at the Cafe Bars, take in a Tapas or two, do some shopping and watching the locals enjoy their city.
