Cala Ratjada (East)
A beautiful promenade, fantastic beaches and cool clubs, but also unspoilt natural landscapes characterise the lively town of Cala Ratjada. The town of Cala Ratjada is the main harbour and coastal development of the municipality of Capdepera and is built on a small rocky peninsula at the north-eastern tip of the island, about 65 km from the capital Palma. This part of the island is the closest point to the neighbouring island of Menorca, and on a clear day it is possible to see the old Menorcan capital of Ciutadella from the harbour area. One of the characteristics of this part of Mallorca is the spectacular irregular coastline and numerous sandy coves. In total, the municipality of Capdepera has almost 42 km of coastline and most of its beaches and coves have been awarded the prestigious European Union Blue Flag for their cleanliness, facilities and water quality. Among these beaches are the famous Cala Agulla, Son Moll and Cala Mesquida. The beautiful beach Cala Gat is smaller than Son Moll with only 50 m long and 25 m wide. This stretch of the north-eastern coastline around Cala Mesquida and Cala Agulla has been recognised for its special ecological and environmental value. The Town Council of the Balearic Islands has declared the area a bird sanctuary of special protection. Capdepera is a picturesque village between two mountains with a medieval castle, without doubt this municipality is one of the best places to visit in Mallorca.
