Cala Bona, within the municipal district of Son Servera, forms a continuous development along the coast together with Cala Millor. The promenade of Cala Millor extends north along the coast as far as the port of Cala Bona – a small fishing harbour that has been in use since times gone by and which now contains pleasure craft and is the departure point for tourist excursions along the coast. Around the port there are restaurants where diners can enjoy fresh fish. The town mainly comprises hotels and apartments, though there are many houses as well.

At Cala Bona there are three beaches, which are next to each other and protected by breakwaters, keeping the water calm and creating ideal conditions for swimming. Put together they are about 470m long and there is a lifeguard service as well as sun lounger, parasol and pedal boat rental facilities.

Port Roig: after the port of Cala Bona, following the coast north, you reach this beach with reddish sand and a couple of low-rise hotels. The beach is 200m long and 50m wide.
Services: restaurant; sun loungers, parasols and pedal boats for hire.

Cala Sa Marjal is the only beach which hasn´t been built up on the bay of Cala Millor; it is located just before the luxury residential development of Costa dels Pins, next to the road. During the summer months there is a tourist train which stops here. It is 600m long and 15m wide, with fine sand.
Services: a bar which serves food; sun loungers, parasols and pedal boats for rent.

Port Nou and Port Vell

Port Nou is the name given to a stretch of coastline with a sandy beach and rocks, including a series of small residential developments, which continues north from Cala Bona. This forms a line of constructions along the coast, starting in the south at Punta de n´Amer and finishing at the beach of Sa Marjal, which is part of the zone known as Port Vell. The oldest houses are those next to the sea, next to a small oratory, and there are also some apartment blocks and hotels; these are generally low-rise buildings which blend in well with the landscape, and they have preserved part of the tamarisk and pine vegetation in front of the sea.
