Cala Galdana o Cala Santa Galdana es una playa situada en la costa sur de Menorca. Pertenece al término municipal de Ferrerías. En su entorno se sitúan dos urbanizaciones, separadas por el Torrent d'Algendar: Cala Galdana, perteneciente a Ferrerías, y Serpentona, que pertenece a Ciudadela, ambas construidas durante el desarrollo turístico de los años 60.

La playa, de unos 300 metros de longitud y 40 de ancho, se caracteriza por su arena blanca y fina, propia del sur de la isla, y su abundante vegetación. Además, se trata de una playa muy segura para el baño gracias a su forma de concha, y dispone de varios servicios como socorrista, Cruz Roja y duchas públicas, ofertas de alquiler de hamacas y sombrillas, y deportes náuticos como lanchas, kayaks e hidropedales, cosa que provoca que sea una de las playas más frecuentadas de Menorca durante los meses de verano, tanto por turistas como por la propia gente de la isla.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
