Cala Galdana Introduction

Cala Galdana, lying in the south coast of Minorca, is said to be one of the most beautiful coves on the island. This picturesque resort has a beautiful pine clad horse shoe shaped bay. The shelter given by the tall limestone cliffs surrounding the bay causes a raise in temperature making Cala Galdana slightly warmer than its nearest neighbours. It is also less breezy. Although only twenty two miles from the airport, (as the crow flies), the transfer time is roughly forty five minutes.

Why go to Cala Galdana

Choose a Cala Galdana holiday and relax in summer sunshine in one of Minorca’s most beautiful resorts. With water sports and boating expeditions, coastal walks and bus trips Cala Galdana has much to interest holiday makers.

A Cala Galdana holiday is very popular with families, particularly those who have small children. The safe waters of the sandy beach make it an ideal venue. While the view from the hotels and apartments on the top of the cliffs is magnificent, visitors must remember that there are many steps down to the beach, making the return journey rather arduous. Those with very small children and those with mobility problems must choose their accommodation carefully.

When To Go To Cala Galdana

The holiday season in Cala Galdana begins in April and lasts until late October with temperatures ranging from the twenties to the mid thirties.

Cala Galdana - The Place

Cala Galdana is situated centrally on the southern coast eleven kilometres from the inland town of Ferreries. Cala Galdana is known as the queen of the bays because of its great natural beauty. Photographs of this bay are often used to promote tourism on the island. The beach of fine golden sand, gently sloping into crystal clear waters, is ideal for families with children. The beach is accessed by a wooden bridge or by steps. The charming bay, enclosed by fragrant pine trees clinging to lofty cliffs, is perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving. As well as opportunities for wind surfing and sailing, there are also speed boats for hire. Boat trips are also available and are a good way to explore the coastline. One of Minorca’s few rivers, the Barranc d’Algendar, runs through Cala Galdana into the sea. It has a marina at its mouth which holds a number of small boats. The river dries up to almost nothing during the heat of the parched summer. For those who like isolation there are a number of coastal walks leading to secluded coves and beaches. Local buses go to Ferreries, a small town eleven kilometres inland, several times a day although the timetable is a little erratic. Refreshments are available at the many beachside bars and restaurants. The small commercial centre caters for the general needs of the holiday maker. There are a good number of gift and souvenir shops where holiday mementos can be purchased.
