Calan Bosch Beach

Cala en Bosch and Son Xoriguer each have their own beach. Cala en Bosch beach is close to the Marina area and around the headland is the neighbouring beach of Son Xoriguer. Cala en Bosch is much the bigger of the two, has fine white sandy and is part of inlet which calms the waters for the smaller children and provides good snorkelling with it's rocks along the bay sides. The beach at Son Xoriguer is where the watersports can be found.

(updated June 2024)

The combined resorts of Cala en Bosch ( Cap d'Artrutx ) and Son Xoriguer are located on the south west tip of Menorca. With views over to neighbouring Majorca it lies just 10km south of the beautiful old city of Ciutadella, which is reachable via a regular bus service. Also known by all these names: Cala D'en Bosch, Cala n Bosch or Cala en Bosc and Cap d'Artrutx.

A livelier resort ( by Menorca's standards ) , the main commercial area of which is centred around a man made marina. There are a wide variety of Bars and Restaurants in the Cala en Bosch also a handful in Cap D'artrutx and directly behind Son Xoriguer beach.

Built in the 1980s, Cala en Bosch / Son Xoriguer is one of only a few resorts on Menorca purpose built for tourism and as such it has the most hotels and greatest number of Holiday visitors making it livelier than most resorts. In Cala'n Bosch you will find the most better quaility family hotels with on site facilities for younger children on Menorca which makes it very popular . Conversely it is not so typical of the Menorca described in many guides. There is a definite and quieter area for Villas and Apartments at the area locally called Cap D'artrux which is 10-20m slow walk to/from the marina.

Being a purpose built holiday resort it contains all you need from a holiday resort and benefits by having the central Marina area. Neighbouring Son Xoriguer has perhaps become too dominated by hotels while Cala en Bosch ( Cap D' Artrutx ) still offers private villa accommodation away from the "buzz"/ noise giving you the best of both worlds.

Calan Bosch - Top See and Do

lots more what to see and do ideas

Cala'n Bosch - Marina

A man made marina provides the hub of Cala en Bosch with the majority of Bars and Restaurants clustered around it's three sides-This creates a buzy atmosphere evenings but similarly hotels next to the Marina will have to accept this background noise.

Shopping and Supermarkets

There are plenty of supermarkets around Cala en Bosch which also offer cycle hire, beach and summer wear. There is a small shopping centre at the Marina with a wider range of clothes, shoes. However Ciutadella is within easy reach where you will be spoilt with individual shops in the old city's attractive streets. ( very few awful chain stores! ). There is a summer market ( but frankly it is awful and full of tat ) - visiit the evening and Artisan markets in Ciutadella instead.

Holiday Tips

Larger Supermarkets :

Calan Bosch - Nightlife

As with most resorts in Menorca, evening entertainment here is generally to be found in the resort Bars rather than Dance clubs but nothing that would ever compare to the neon jungle of the resorts along the south coast of Majorca or Ibiza. Mahon and Ciutadella however offer something for everyone, but with none of the "binge drink clubbing" to be found on Ibizia and Majorca. Menorca is NOT Majorca but that is why many people come here!

The Bars and Restaurants around the marina come alive at night providing a choice of entertainment for all ages and tastes. In high season you can find street artists and traders offering their handicrafts and jewellry. There are a couple of bars that offer Karaoke- see full list

Taxis ( late night ) back from Ciutadella max. 22 Euro

Nightlife in Cala'n Bosch

Live tribute acts tour the island and are on stage at advertised locations - Free to watch if you buy a drink and some can be very entertaining.

There are several bars with late opening dotted round the resort each with a different feel and style.

A sunset stroll along the cosatlline promenande at Cap D'rtrux

Organised evening entertainment here is generally to be found in the resort hotels and some Bars. Ciutadella offers alot more with something for everyone, but with none of the "bing drink clubbing" to be found on Ibizia and Majorca. Menorca is not Majorca but that is why many people come here!

Restaurants in Cala'n Bosch

Cala en Bosch has a very mixed bag of restaurants across all styles and price levels. IMO no standout local cuisine restaurant. Kaypa offers a change with Peruvian. Plenty of fixed price menus and a la carte options. The majority are around the Marina. I would stroll and choose with your eyes Some very good restaurants can be found in Ciutadella old city and harbour, bus ride away. ...our curated Cala'n Bosch Bar and Restaurants guide

Cala'n Bosch See and Do

A purpose built holiday resort Cala'n Bosch offers the most touristic facilities of any menorcan resort. Plus water sports, bike, boatrips and hire from the marina and beach at Son Xoriguer ( just east of Cala en Bosch ) Calan Bosch does not have the same quality of natural scenery of Menorca's typical south coast resorts. If you want more of what menorca's is known for you need to head eastwards and along the southern coast line. Ciutadella has an abundance of attractions and is an easy bus-ride away.

Does Cala'n Bosch have enough shops?

Menorca beach resorts have no/few local residents so you will need to goto to local towns for anything beyond summer beach wear,tourist items and beach toys/inflatables and souvenir items.

Several browsing shops with summer clothes, toys, beach item. Better shopping in Ciutadella old city centre and Summer Night markets in Ciutadella
