Re: Cala n Bosch to Cala Blanca

Walked this stretch in August from CB to CnB. Couple of hours would do it although I usually walk early morning before it gets too warm. Fairly level rocky path except at CnB area which is built up with roads. Not the most interesting stretch of CDC with nothing by way of beaches but scenic all the ...

Re: April in Cala Blanca

Seem to be a few accommodation options and have managed to find flights. Realise it might not be beach weather every day but the only worry is not being able to find a meal and a beer!

Re: April in Cala Blanca

Looking at accommodation near the Cala. Any information as to whether bars and restaurants around the Cala - Miramar, Sa Cova, Mediterranean, Hola, etc might be open mid April greatly appreciated!

April in Cala Blanca

Wondering if anybody can tell me what CB is like in mid April? Thinking of booking an early trip for next year but would there be anybody around and any bars open so early in the season. Thought CB would be good as not far into Ciutadella if it is quiet or not beach weather but would be better still...

Re: Bars and restaurants

Thanks Trevx, had a look on google maps and starting to understand the layout. For accommodation, to have the Cala and bars/restaurants closish to hand it look as if the area around Maribel apartments might work well? Would maybe look for decent sized apartments or small villa in that vicinity - any...

Bars and restaurants

Thinking about a change from South coast resorts to Cala Blanca for next year. How does CB compare to Say Son Bou or Binibeca in terms of number and quality of places to eat and drink?
