Cala Bona is a small seaside quarter in the municipality of Son Servera characterised by its traditional fishing port and the tranquil, relaxing atmosphere of the pavement terraces of its bars and restaurants, where there were once only the fishermen’s houses and their small port.
Located to the south of Port Verd and the north of Cala Millor, it is connected to both areas by a very pleasant seafront promenade. Today the quarter has residential areas and first rate hotels that attract above all families and older holidaymakers who come here for the tranquillity, safety and welcoming atmosphere. It also has supermarkets, shops, taxis, a public bus service, a tourist information office, etc.
In the small port you can see the traditional Mallorcan fishing boats known as llaüts; they are built of wood and are between 3 and 5 metres long. Originally they were wind-powered with lateen sails, but now they have diesel motors. They are still used as fishing boats by both professional and amateur fishermen and also as leisure craft.
There are three rocky beaches protected by artificial breakwaters. Cala Bona’s main beach has been certified by AENOR with the UNE 170001 Universal Accessibility Standard.
Cala Bona has maintained its traditions and right in the middle of the holiday season, on 16 July, its seafarers celebrate the day of their patron saint, Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
