It’s a quiet relaxing resort with tranquil atmosphere that ideally suited for couples and families after a peaceful holiday.

The stunning south-west coastline is home to the beautiful Menorcan resort of Cala’n Bosch or Cala Bosc, located just 5 miles south of the islands second largest city Ciutadella.

It’s a stunning holiday resort and one of Menorca’s best family holiday destinations with some great accommodation options, lots of restaurants, gorgeous beaches, plenty of exciting attractions and a little culture nearby.

Whether your holidaying alone, a couple or bringing the family it’s a well-developed resort that’s accommodates a wide range of activities to suite all tastes. Kids can enjoy the glorious beach with soft white sand and shallow clear turquoise waters, whilst teenagers and those more energetic can experience flyboarding, paragliding, sea kayaking and jet skis.

In the heart of Cala Bosch is a wonderful marina that sweeps inland connected to the sea via a narrow channel. It’s perfect for strolling around viewing all the speed boats and fishing boats anchored and where you’ll find some great restaurants, bars, shops and places you can book a boat trip or activity.

If you are travelling with your family don’t miss the Aquarock waterpark and go karting track, as well as the Goody Goody park situated on the Marina.

Things to do in Cala'n Bosch

Cala’n Bosch is in an ideal location to explore those Menorca attractions situated on the west side of the island, such as the town of Cuitadella, Far d'Artrutx lighthouse, Quarries of S'Hostal or the ancient prehistoric settlement at Son Catlar.

The numerous water sports on offer at Cala’n Bosch is one of the highlights to visiting the resort, whether its jet powered flyboarding, sea kayaking, snorkelling or not to be missed are the boat trips along some stunning coastline and gorgeous secluded beaches, such as Son Saura and Cala Turqueta. We recommended the company Don Pancho for boat trips.

There are two stages of the coastline pathway known as Cami de Cavalls that can be used by walkers or mountain bikes both of easy difficulty from Ciutadella to Cap d’Artrutx (7.4 miles) and Cala en Turqueta to Cap d’Artrutx (8 miles), we recommend you catch a bus to Ciutadella, then onto Cala en Turqueta and walk back to Cala’n Bosch, but take plenty of water, there are no shops on route.

For shorter walks from Cala’n Bosch more suited for kids, try following the coastline path eastwards where you’ll discover the beach at Son Xoriguer then onto the sea cave at Sa cova des pardals. Alternately, follow the coast westwards to the Cap d’Artrutx lighthouse which offers spectacular sunsets over the sea with views to Majorca.

Within Cala’n Bosh you’ll find the main shopping complex for the entire resort located behind the marina, here you’ll find a wide range of shops, car and bike hire companies, a pharmacy, doctors, and a couple of well stocked supermarkets. There are also supermarkets located either side of the iconic bridge that crosses the narrow sea channel.

We would also recommend a short drive or bus journey to the beautiful historic town of Cuitadella and wandering around its narrow streets near the Santa Maria Cathedral. You’ll find lots of individual shops selling everything from high street designer brands to beautifully locally crafted items. There’s also a market on Friday and Saturday mornings and every evening during the summer on the ports steps.
