Cala Bona

I am going to the Protur Aparthotel Bonaire in 6 weeks. I was just wondering what there is to do outside Cala Bona? Are there any places to visit by local bus or taxi relatively close? I have a 4 and 2 year old in tow.

Many thanks.

Cala Millor (right next door, lovely pedestrian promenade all the way), By bus; caves at Arta or Port Cristo, Castles at Capdepera (nice!) and Arta.

plenty of water sports, boating, bike/scooter rental, horse rides etc. at Cala Millor beach, Sa Coma...

Hi, there should be plenty of kids activities in the Bonaire during the day for your 4 year old and think your 2year old will be able to use the crèche and drop in club but not a 100% sure on the latter. There are bus stops directly outside the hotel which travel locally and also around the island. There is also a "Noddy" train which runs up and around the local area and goes as far as Sa Coma which is good fun for the kids and is relatively cheap. The harbour is a 5 minute walk from the hotel, where you can go on various boat trips up and down the coast.

Your kids are at a the perfect age to enjoy the Bonaire and Cala Bona. Have a great holiday!

Thank you Mallorcat. Roughly how long would it take to walk to Cala Millor from the Bonaire do you think?

Chunks dad, Noddy train sounds brilliant, can't wait. How far is Sa Coma? Would you recommend any trips?

Thanks.

Depends on how leisurely you are, but Cala Millor is a large resort. To reach the northern end of the Cala Millor strip, maybe 5-10 minutes, to reach the center of the Cala Millor promenade, maybe 20min - half hour. Sa Coma is a much longer walk, maybe 40 min - 1 hour, but it's a lovely walk. Don't recommend it with kids unless you are used to walking that far.

Also (depending on your kids) the Manacor market on Monday mornings is worth taking the bus. And if you want, you can take the train (cheap) from Manacor directly into central Palma (and back) for some sightseeing. But again - that's a big day for the kids.

Noddy train to Sa Coma would probably take about 25 minutes. You can also get off at Cala Millor which has a lovely long sandy beach. Cala Millor is between Cala Bona and Sa Coma. There's also a safari park towards Sa Coma. You can get a bus there I believe and you don't need a car to get around it as the park have their own buses. Our kids enjoyed hiring a four wheeler bike and riding along the pedestrianised/bike friendly prom between the three resorts. Bike shop is about a ten minute walk from the Bonaire. If you head to Smithys pub in the harbour then you're only 2 minutes away. Pirates show was one of the best trips we did. Think your kids might be bit to young for that show though.
