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.

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somewhat to expect in a tourist resort, just above average in the "fancy" area by the harbour, and about average in the withdrawn streets of the town.
