Mallorca

A charming resort of two halves

A popular resort on Majorca’s easterly tip, Cala Ratjada holidays offer visitors a wonderfully diverse experience. On one side of the peninsula you have the town’s charming old harbour, which is still occupied by traditional Majorcan ‘llaut’ fishing boats. On the other, you’ll find the stunning Cala Agulla – a long sandy bay surrounded by unspoiled nature. Holidays to Cala Ratjada combine natural beauty with plenty of tourist-oriented amenities and some fabulous beaches.

The summer crowds create a real buzz among the town’s string of seafood restaurants and quaint cafés, while a waterfront promenade stretches from the resort’s main beach, Cala Moll, to the smaller more secluded Cala Gat, both offering fine white sand and clear, calm water. Be sure to take a stroll to the other side of the peninsula, too, where you’ll find laid-back eateries and further picturesque swimming spots.

Your Cala Ratjada questions, answered

While Cala Ratjada is popular with families, its secluded coastline and lively clutch of nightspots means there’s plenty to appeal to all types of visitor.

If you’re seeking guaranteed sunshine, late June to August is best. If you want there to be smaller crowds, a month either side of this is still beach-friendly.

With a wide choice of hotels available across the resort, there is something to suit all budgets – although most places sit in the middle-to-upscale range.
