Melia Cala Galdana

The Melia Cala Galdana is as close to the beach as it gets. It’s perched right on a sandy cove, between two hills covered with palm trees.

The hotel makes the most of its envy-inducing position. There’s a stylish beach club that comes with a restaurant, a sunbathing terrace and an infinity pool.

Inside, the interiors are contemporary, with natural shades throughout. Outside, waterfalls decorate the large pool, which comes wrapped in a roomy wood-decked sun terrace topped with loungers. There’s even a hot tub for a splash of luxury.

Overview of Cala Galdana

Menorca is the most laid-back and traditional of the Balearic Islands. Compared to neighbouring Majorca and Ibiza, it’s been relatively untouched by tourism, and is a great place for a traditional Spanish break.

There’s still plenty to see and do on a holiday to Menorca though, with miles of coastline to explore. Top hotels like the Melia Cala Galdana line the coast, so it’s easy to enjoy the island’s natural beauty, secret beaches and historic architecture. For days out, head to Mahon or Ciutadella, which are the island’s two main cities.
