Cala Galdana

Written and updated by Nigel Clarkson March 23 2024

The Cala Galdana horseshoe bay and super smooth sandy beach with a calm sea.

Cala Galdana has got to be one of the most picturesque resorts on the island. It's a great place to stay and we love the beach, the restaurants, the friendliness and the laid-back environment.


The perfect holiday break for families and couples alike and we have stay so many times.

Cala Galdana Beach

It is so peaceful with just the right amount of things going on along with places to eat, drink and get some groceries from the supermarkets.


There are many Villas set on the hillside looking down to the beach and the bay. The only large high-rise buildings/complexes are situated on the main beachfront. They are hotels, Minura Cala Galdana & Apartamentos d'Aljandar, Artiem Audax and the Meliá Cala Galdana.


On every visit, we always marvel at some of the spectacular Villas that have the most perfect view across the beach and the sea. Many are perched on the cliff tops on the south side of the Cala Galdana Bay. We have our eye on one such villa with Villa Plus, but it is expensive but worth every penny. Maybe one day!

Finding a taxi in Cala Galdana

The Cala Galdana taxi rank is along the main street near to the restaurants and marina


There is a taxi rank for 2 cars on the Passatge Riu near the boats and restaurants and when I have passed the rank, there has always been a taxi there available for hire.

Cala Galdana Activities and Tours

Boat Cruise South Menorca - Cala Galdana
Snorkelling - Cala Galdana


There are supermarkets in and around the main seafront area where you can buy most of your essentials if staying in a villa or apartment.

There is one going up the one-way street hill, Costa Mirador, near the Audax Supermercat Serpentona, and another further up in the Flora Mar buildings.  Supermercat


We also used the Ci Fe Supermercado 2000, situated on the beach strip of restaurants near Galdana Gardens. UK newspapers can be purchased there (Picture from Google Maps) and one on the road out of Cala Galdana - Supermarket Cala Mitjana

There is another one on the same street just around the corner in Galdana Gardens - Supermarket Algendar which gets an excellent rating from Google
