Modern purpose built holiday resort close to Ciutadella, the hub of which is centred around the Marina which has a distinct 'Riviera' feel about it. Relax in one of the many bars and restaurants surrounding the Marina and watch the boats coming and going. Lots for families to do with 1 of the island's two Waterparks located here.
Perhaps the most widely promoted resort on Menorca due to it having the highest concentration of tour operator
accommodation. Built in the 1980s, Cala en Bosch , Cala'n Bosch and Calan Bosch as it is also written is one of a
handful of resorts on the island purpose built for larger scale tourism. All this means it contains more
attractions than other resorts making it livelier than most, though lively is on a Menorcan scale, not Mallorca
or mainland Spain.
Most of the hotels in Cala en Bosch are clustered around and behind the Marina and in nearby Son Xoriguer. This leaves a quieter zone for holiday villas in the Cap D'Artrurtx area located at the entrance to Calan Bosch and south west of the Marina. Along with a small commercial area with bars, restaurants and childrens playpark Villa residents can enjoy the 'buzz' of the Marina, but leave it behind when they want more peaceful surroundings.
Cala en Bosch probably offers the most childrens entertainments on the island. There is an Aquapark with karting track and extensive ( for Menorca standards) varying childrens entertainments, indoors and outdoors. It is quite common for the prices of the childrens entertainment to seem quite high at first sight, but often the charge is for a day ticket or a large number of hours, so you can always return later in the evening before or after a drink/meal or snack at the Marina. Make sure you get a stamp to allow them back in later.
The area in and around Calan Bosch is totally flat so there is all manner of pedal driven two and four wheeler, single seater, multi seater cycles for hire dotted around the commercial centres for hire . There is a 10km cycle route to Ciutadella where you can also visit other beaches on this strip of the western coast to cool off. Active watersports fans should head to the beach area at Son Xoriguer to the east of Cala en Bosch. There you will find banana boat rides, HobbieCat hire windsurfer ( tuition available ) and you can waterski ( peak season only ).
Boat trips from Calan Bosch Marina Boats from the attractive Marina offers trips along the south coast so mums can experience a little bit of beach paradise too.
Cala en Bosch melts into neighbouring Son Xoriguer with each having its own 'house beach'.
