Cala Ratjada local guide

Hotel and accommodation offers in Cala Ratjada

Cala Ratjada offers a great variation of holiday rentals and great hotels. There should be suitable options to choose from, for any holidaymaker who wants to enjoy all the great beaches and life here in Cala Ratjada.

Cala Ratjada is located on the very north-eastern nose of Majorca. The area combines the charming harbour of Cala Ratjada itself, Cala Gat, Son Moll and Cala Agulla.

Cala Ratjada is an old and very charming area. Just 50 years ago, the town had not yet seen tourism, and today this is the main income source. This makes Cala Ratjada a wonderful combination between a charming harbour and a state of the art holiday resort.

If you want a change of scenery, or simply want to see something unique, do yourself a favor and head to the neighbouring town of Capdepera, just 1 mile away. Here, you will see the Castell de Capdepera, a medieval castle located on top of the mountain. From up here, you ca take in some amazing panoramic views over the coastal line, and on a clear day (most are), you can see Menorca.

A short drive from Cala Ratjada, you can reach the area of Canyamel, where you can enjoy the amazing stalactite caves “Cuevas de Artà”, where Julius Verne found his inpiration for “Journey to the Center of the Earth“. Also in Canyamel, you can find the old defense tower “Torre de Canyamel”, where a very good restaurant is to be found as well.

Originally a fishing village, Cala Ratjada has long traditions making excellent seafood. The restaurants alongside the old fishing habour, serves a great variety of interesting dishes with fish and shellfish. This is a great place to go for the Paella!

The price level in Cala Rtjada, is somewhat to expect in a tourist resort, just above average in the “fancy” area by the harbour, and about average in the withdrawn streets of the town.

Cala Ratjada offers walking, horseback riding, cycling, tennis, golf, ballooning and many other fun activities to enjoy with your travel partner(s). 3 amazing beaches are waiting for you, with clear water, silky soft sand, plenty of space, and a great deal of fun activities, such as jet skies, water scooter, paragliding, surfing, beach volley etc. If you can manage to get up early during your holiday, you should definitely consider a sunrise boat trip, where you get to see dolphins. The trips starts at 6 a.m (yes it is early), and you should be back in Cala Ratjada around noon.
