Menorca's main tourist resort, holidays in Cala'n Bosch are geared towards families and couples who enjoy the luxury of lovely beaches, water-based activities and a low key, laid back ambience. Prettily landscaped with whitewashed private villas dotted around and a few large hotels, the area is fairly quiet and not overly built-up. With a natural cove lapping a glistening golden beach, Cala'n Bosch is the clever traveller's choice for totally relaxing beach holidays.
Built round a natural marina which is ringed with cafes, shops, bars and lovely restaurants, this is the focal point for long, lazy evenings of good food and cordial conversation. It is also a delightful lunch spot where people watching is an absolute art form! Call in to any of the local cafes for a quick coffee or cool drink, enjoy some welcome shade or the balmy heat of the afternoon sun and you just might forget to leave....
The beach is small but safe with soft, powdery sand and the translucent waters are ideal for swimming or hectic pedalo rides! Another beach at Son Xoriguer (around the headland) is more geared towards watersports activities with scuba diving and windsurfing the most popular pastimes. It is also possible to have sailing lessons here or you can even book a Hobie-Cat catamaran or try a water-skiing session in high season. Apart from a small waterpark with chutes and water slides, there is the fun of Goody Goody Park, purpose-built for the little ones, where they can burn off their endless energy with a Bouncy Castle, trampolines and bumper cars.
As Menorca is such a small island, it is really easy to explore. A hire car is a great way to get around and stop at the villages or hamlets that take your fancy; alternatively, there are plenty of local excursions that touch on the main points of interests on the island. Don't miss a visit to Ciudadela, the ancient capital of Menorca, which exists since the 4th century. A mixture of Gothic and Baroque architecture creates a delightful forum for narrow streets with a Cathedral, museums and attractive local houses. In general, the island is full of history with many archaeological gems, so move around to discover the most of Menorca and enjoy its combination of beach beauty and rustic charm.
