cala galdana (cdg) is a beautiful,small,quite resort on menorca's south coast.it boasts a beautiful,clean,shallow horse shoe shaped bay.
nightlife is very low key here,it's mostly hotel based though there is evening entertainment in the "square" with tribute shows and a handful of bars.
there are some lovely coastal path walks that take you to four amazing secluded beaches,two either side of cdg.
we stayed at the sol galavines hotel which is right on the beach,great hotel for location,food,entertainment ect.the hotel also has a tidy little gym and if you sign for the keys you can use it early in the morning,nice to have a run and swim before breakfast.
imo menorca is a quite,laid back island,as is cdg.if you want a chill out break this place is ideal,we will certainly be returning one day.

Yes it looks a nice quiet place, I remember quite a few years back a friend went there (I think it was Cala Galdana) and came back
with the story that two chair beds and parasol were 19 euro's a day. I understand they have reduced the price since.

Did you find they were expensive?

yes that was the going rate when we were there delboy,what a rip off.we prefer the pool,it was lovely and quite on our visit.
most folk bought lilo's for about e7 and used then for the beach,as i would have as there is no way i would have paid that much for a sunbed.

Thanks for posting that Yosef, I have never been to Menorca but it looks like the sort of place we like.

Just out of interest, I notice in some of your pictures it looks rather overcast and nor too sunny. The reason I mention this that many of the pictures taken with Mrs H's Casio camera make it look overcast even when it is mainly blue skies.

We were on holiday with the in-laws a couple of years ago and we were both taking similar pictures using our own cameras. Then we compared pictures Mrs H's ones looked overcast on many shots yet my father in laws pictures taken at the same places at the same time showed a vivid blue sky.

He had a Panasonic camera, on of the reasons I ended up buying one. Our pictures this year were fantastic in comparison.

We will have to start looking for a place that sells Tetley's for Daryn, that is the tea variety not the beer. wink beer drinker

Nice one yosef, we've been to Minorca and really enjoyed it, think the resort we stayed at was Cala Blanca. We did a day trip to Cala Bosch (or something like that) and the water was just about as crystal clear as you can get.

We went in the 90's (pre digital camera days) and the pics will be in the loft now under a couple of carpets and half a dozen teddy bears Very Happy

Rep from me yozef, thanks for the info & photos. Thinking of returning to Minorca (or Menorca?) next year, went to Cala Blanca in 2005 & visited Ciutadella and Cala Bosch but never made it to CDG. Liked the island well enough to consider going back.
Cheers HH.
