Tucked along the east coast of Majorca, Cala Bona is found near the Tramuntana Mountains, which offers the perfect playground for those who want an active break.
Being one of the most rural coastlines when compared with the West and South, it provides a mass of pine forestland and craggy shores, which active visitors will have fun exploring.
