Cala Bona has grown from a tiny traditional fishing village into an important holiday resort on Majorca's quieter east coast. The original village of Cala Bona is still on view as Cala Bona still has a number of the narrow streets. The harbour is an interesting part of the resort of Cala Bona. The harbour has been refurbished recently and now provides a number of harbourside cafes, bars and eateries. A number of local tourist excursions are available by the harbour.

Cala Bona includes a number of smallish sandy beaches sheltered between man made rocky breakwaters forming calm, sheltered waters ideal for swimming and paddling in relative safety. Over the last few years these lagoons seem to have formed a natural trap for the local seaweed to accumulate both in the water and on the beach. Son Severa council have started to deal with this problem by undertaking a seaweed removal program to prevent it accumulating. Cala Bona's beaches are now generally in fine fettle as a result of the council's efforts.
