Cala Ratjada is a pleasant resort on the rocky north-east coast of Majorca. It has a busy harbour and a large modern marina. The sandy beach is fairly small but Cala Agulla, which is within walking distance, is much larger. This is a favourite with families. Other small beaches are Cala Guya and Cala Mesquida but these shelve fairly steeply into the sea so are not suitable for small children. Cala Mesquida is popular with surfers as the seas here are heavier and waves are higher. The countryside in this area makes ideal hiking country with walking trails through wooded hills and along coastal paths. There are great views in all directions. The northeast of Majorca also has a choice of golf courses. Early and late season, when the climate is more temperate, sees the arrival of many golfers and hikers. Boat trips are available from the harbour. You can explore the coast or even take a day trip to Menorca.
Cala Ratjada, once an unassuming fishing village, is a lively resort with a range of accommodation to suit most budgets. Its modern hotels provide good amenities and service is excellent. There is a good provision of restaurants and shops, particularly around the harbour area. If you have a conservative palate, there are pubs serving typical bar meals as well as restaurants serving international cuisine. For shoppers, there is a weekly market in the town square, Placa del Pins. You'll also find a market each Wednesday in neighbouring Capdepera. This village has the ruins of a thirteenth-century castle. Nightlife is a vibrant affair where the party atmosphere continues from dusk until dawn.
