Cala d'Or, Cala en Bosch or Albufiera?

Can anyone please help? Looking for a weeks late booking at end august for me my husband and our 15 year old daughter. We love Lindos but are looking for somewhere a little cheaper and nearer in flight time. We are looking for somewhere pretty with a nice marina if possible, good tavernas but not too comercialised. Can anyone please advise which location would be more suited? Thanks TA.

Went to Albufeira in August last year and thought it was too busy. Liked the place, but not as much as Cala D`or. Going to Cala D`or in two weeks for our fourth visit. I find it relaxing but not too quiet. Loads of restaurants to choose from in pedestrianised area, also around Marina. If you have young kids, the beaches here are very sheltered and safe but get very busy too.

Can`t comment on Cala en Bosch as never been.

I have been to all 3 cala n Bosch probably suits you better if you want a marina and not too lively. Although the others are nice and cala d'or offers a very nice marina which is peaceful although the centre of cala d'or and albuferia are both livelier than cala n Bosch in my opinion.

Hope this helps.

I would say Cala D'or would suit you best with a 15 year old. It has more going on in an evening than calan bosch, which although pretty, is small and quiet. Havent been to Albuferia (its on my list!) so cant say on that one. Ive been to Lindos and loved it too! If you have any questions get in touch!

Been to all 3 . Would say Cala D'or would be best . Albufeira could be ok if you chose right location . Cala Bosch not as good as the others .

Hi, Been to Cala d'or & Cala n Bosch - preferred Cala n Bosch - but Cala d'or was nice too - bigger & more spaced out with a lovely marina & pedestrianised area (although they are about 1/4mile apart, we ate more in the pedestrianised area as seemed to be more pricey down by the marina)

Cala n Bosch had a lovely marina with restaurants surrounding it! quieter - lovely! , but then everyone to their own,

Hope this helps
