Resort Guides - Cala Ratjada


Cala Ratjada

Cala Ratjada is a lively resort on a rocky peninsula on the north-east coast of Majorca. It is a small town in its own right with a busy harbour and a modern marina. Ferries to Menorca sail from the port. Unlike purpose-built resorts, Cala Ratjada retains its authentic island atmosphere. The resort benefits from several beaches in the locality. The town beach is fairly small but Cala Agulla, reached by a short walk, is a favourite with families as it shelves gently into the sea. Cala Mesquida, where the seas are heavy, attracts surfers and water sport enthusiasts. The resort is a good base for walkers as there are plenty of marked hiking trails both inland and along the coastal paths. Early and late season, when the weather is more temperate, is popular with walkers. Golfers also enjoy it here as they have a choice of courses.

Cala Ratjada has a range of accommodation that caters for most budgets. Its hotels and apartments provide good, modern amenities as well as friendly and attentive service.
