Cala Galdana is one of the prettiest coves on the island in which to enjoy nautical sports such as light sailing, diving, motor boating, etc. Excursions on foot that will take you in 20 minutes to adjacent, still unspoilt, coves cala Mitjana y cala Macarella.

Cala Galdana
The resort is purpose-built surrounded by dramatic scenery of limestone cliffs, pine-clad hills and crystal-clear waters.

The main drag runs for ½ mile along the valley, roughly following the river, and it is here that much of the accommodation as well as the main commercial centre is located.

Accommodation continues up the hillside for around 600 yards (although the winding road makes it seem farther) and there is a secondary residential area with no commercial centre over Galdana Bridge on the S side of the river.

Although this area overlooks the beach, the steep incline has forced a lot of development away from the beach itself. The whole area is becoming increasingly protected to preserve its natural beauty with only a couple of monstrosities marring the landscape.

In terms of accommodation there is a choice of middle- to upper-category hotels, apartments and villas. The beach here is broad, deep, gently shelving of fine light sand and clear waters backed by shady pine trees. Access to beach is via a wooden bridge or steps. There is a second even more picturesque beach 30-minute walk away at Cala Mitjana.
