With so much to do in Cala Bona, you'll forget you're in a functioning fishing town and not in a busy metropolis.

Beach and bike

Cala Bona has several small white sand and shingle beaches that are surrounded by rocky coves – each one is a beautiful spot to take in the views of the Mediterranean Sea. A popular way to find the right one for you is to explore by bike.

There are several bike rental shops around the marina that allow you to hire a bike for the day. Head out on the cycle track that covers the length of the promenade and enjoy discovering the beaches at your own pace.

Out on the water

For ocean lovers who dream of taking to the high seas, Cala Bona is the place to visit. If you head down to the harbour you can purchase a ticket for a boat trip. Options cover hopping aboard a glass-bottomed catamaran, taking a seat on a speed boat or bagging a place on a sea-rider to tour the area. You'll be able to sail up and down the coastline and take in all of the spectacular views that eastern Majorca has to offer.

A bite to eat

Cala Bona's fishing industry is in full swing, and even with the rise of the tourist population, fishing remains this town's number one industry. With so much fresh fish being caught in the area, it's no wonder that the town's seafood restaurants are some of the best in Spain.

You'll find numerous local authentic restaurants around the marina serving up seafood specialities like steamed mussels, prawns and paella. Don't worry if you're not a seafood fanatic, the influx of international visitors has brought with it cuisines from all over the world including British, Italian and Indian.

If you're in the mood for something light to munch on, there are plenty of cafes and bakeries serving up sandwiches and pastries. Stop by Julie's Sweets and Sandwiches or Stanley's Tea Room for some scrumptious eats and a cup of tea.

Even on an All Inclusive Majorca trip, Cala Bona has too many great dining choices on offer to stay in your hotel throughout your holiday - it's well worth exploring the options outside too.

Caving and diving

One of the most popular places to visit from Cala Bona is the Caves of Drach, just 20 minutes away in Porto Cristo. If you love adventure you'll have a great time sailing through the underground lakes and looking up at the softly-lit cave. There is even classical music playing to add to the ambience.

Cala Bona not only has caving experiences but diving ones too. If you're eager to explore the ocean floor and see all the marine life this part of Majorca has to offer, sign up for Cala Bona's diving school. Many diving experts will tell you that Cala Bona is one of the diving spots in Spain. The diving school offers dives to suit all abilities, from snorkelling to sea cave explorations, and the school will even pick you up from your hotel and drop you off after your day in the water.

Nearby towns

Cala Bona is well-equipped with activities and outdoor excursions, but if you're looking for some alternative entertainment neighbouring Cala Millor is on hand, just a 10-minute walk away.

Cala Millor has a large selection of shops where you can find souvenirs as well as pick up some new clothes, jewellery and beach gear. It also has a six-kilometre-long white sand coast to unwind on after all that shopping, with tons of water sports available. You can sun yourself on the beach and then go out for dinner at one of the several restaurants along Cala Millor's promenade.

Balloon rides

You can even tick hot-air ballooning off your bucket list while in Cala Bona. It's worth every penny as you float above Majorca's scenic expanses and take in the views over the island's olive groves and hillsides. As you snap some pics from a breathtakingly high angle and look down on all of the miniature houses and people, you'll be able to see Alcudia to the north and Palma and Magaluf to the south.
