Cala'n Bosch, Menorca, Spain
Cala'n Bosch is located in the far southwest corner of the island and is one of the biggest and liveliest resorts in Menorca. The resort is centred around the attractive marina where visitors will find a wide selection of restaurants and bars.
There are 2 beaches in the resort, Cala'n Bosch beach and Son Xoriguer beach. Cala'n Bosch is the bigger of the two and offers fine white sand that gently slopes into the warm shallow waters, perfect for young children. The marina is just 2 minutes from the beach so there are plenty of bars and restaurants close by. There is a range of watersports offered here and there are good opportunities for snorkeling round the nearby rocks. Son Xoriguer beach is good too and is popular for watersports, offering sailing lessons, windsurfing and water skiing.
Things to Do
There are many boat trips that sail away from the marina. Many of the trips will sail around the unspoilt coves and deserted beaches and give you the opportunity to swim and snorkel or just relax on the beautiful beaches. There are also fishing trips and dolphin spotting trips available.
Although diving is very popular here, you can also participate in windsurfing, surfing, canoeing, jet skiing, water skiing and parasailing so there is a great choice of action packed activities.
Kids will be well entertained with bouncy castles, trampolines and crazy golf.
