Sandy days and harbour nights
Stealing a prime spot on Menorca’s south-west tip, Cala'n Bosch serves up luxury waterfront hotels along a pretty-as-a-postcard beach. It’s a fabulous sweep of sand dipping into Photoshop-blue waters, with sheltered swimming spots and plenty of handy facilities for a day by the sea.
A second beach, Son Xoriguer, sits next door on the other side of a headland. This one’s a popular watersports zone, with a top diving school where you can explore Menorca’s glass-clear waters.
Life in Cala’n Bosch is focused around its picturesque marina, home to the resort’s cluster of bars, cafés and seafood restaurants. It’s the best place to linger after dark, when a low-key nightlife scene kicks into gear and a number of craft stalls spring up, filled with souvenirs and Menorcan specialties.

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
