Cala Ratjada is in the extreme North East corner of Mallorca, on a rocky coastline within easy reach of several beaches. Like the majority of resorts around mallorca Cala Ratjada was originally a small fishing village, only becoming popular with tourists in more recent years. There are still local fishermen, along with pleasure craft and a regular boat service to the nearby island of Menorca. The majority of activity is around the quay, with its many bars and restaurants. There is a promenade to the Son Moll beach which continues past the port to the small beach of Cala Gat. Son Moll beach is 175m long and most of the hotels and apartments are concentrated around here. There are numerous restaurants and sunbeds, umbrellas and pedaloes are available. There is also a lifeguard on this beach. Cala Gat is only 70m long and in a more residential area. There is an open air bar and sunbeds and umbrellas are available. Shopping facilities are good, especially clothes and shoes, and Cala Ratjada offers various sporting facilities including golf, cycling and diving. Up on a hill you can find the Palace of Can March, built on the site of the 15th Century "Torre Cega", with it's collection of sculpture in the grounds. The gardens are open to the public when you pre-book through the tourist information centre. Taking the road up to the lighthouse brings you to the most easterly spot in Mallorca. The lighthouse was built in 1861 and the views are exceptional. Pay a visit to Cafeteria Maritimo which overlooks the port then take a walk north overlooking e sea until you reach the stunning little bay of Cala Gat, a truly hidden gem as far as best beaches of the area is concerned. If you fancy a few days of peace and tranquility stay at the Cala Gat Hotel. Things to do around Cala Ratjada:
