•Things to do in Cala Bona. Over to one of our happy holidaymakers: “We definitely want to come back. It was lovely. Horseriding available just up the road at Rancho Willy's - highly recommended. We enjoy two x 1 1/2 hour hacks up into the hills, through sugar canes etc. Beautiful scenery... The sea is shallow for quite a distance so great for the kids. Cala Bona so pretty at night time. The harbour area is just gorgeous and there is a little fair with go karts and trampolines with harness that catapults the children into the air and back down onto the trampoline again. They were bouncing higher than the trees it was brilliant. There is so much to do and we had a wonderful wonderful time.”
