Cala Ratjada Holidays

Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View home to a busy tourist harbour and there are many cafes, bars and restaurants to be found along the promenade

Cala Rajada is a busy resort but tends to be more popular with German and French tourists than it is with the British.

There are plenty of facilities on the beaches but they are quite small and can get quite crowded. The resort is home to a busy tourist harbour and there are many cafes, bars and restaurants to be found along the promenade.

Activities in the resort include watersports, golfing, cycling and birdwatching due to the beach coves and rocky shoreline. The airport can be found about 70km away.

Insider's View

Majorca Insider the wild and craggy coastline here is spectacular with its pine clad hills, and fine beaches and hidden coves

Sometimes this busy fishing port and resort gets a bad rap for being too commercialised and too large but I beg to differ. Undoubtedly Cala Ratjada was one of the first prominent resorts spawned on the north east side of the island but for that very reason it has every facility on hand from excellent restaurants and hotels to shops and nightlife. The wild and craggy coastline here is spectacular with pine clad hills, and fine beaches and hidden coves. If you're feeling frisky you can even pop by Cala Torta, the nudist beach, although that's not quite my style!

There is so much to do in Cala Ratjada and it acts as a natural hub for boat trips, either just across the bay or to the island of Menorca. The waterfront near the harbour offers every kind of bar and restaurant, my personal favourites being Café Noah's with its sea views and delicious Mediterranean fare and Café Oliva run by Dutchman, Richard Cornips, for the best coffee and excellent tapas selection. Aside from a lively market held on Saturdays in Plaça del Pins, it's worth noting the many festivals with music and firework displays taking place in the town such as the celebration of Patron Saint, Son Roc, on 16, August and the festival of the fishermen on 15 July.

Still, if you want to get away from the hubbub, you can avoid cramped beaches such as Son Moll, and head for the cove of Cala Gat or Cala Agulla across the headland with its backcloth of pines and clear waters and white sand. Rancho Bonanza offers some fun organised pony rides around the area and for walkers and gardeners, a lovely trip is to Sa Torre Cega-literally meaning Blind Tower-which is just on the edge of the port. Run by the March Foundation, visitors can take a peek inside the main house on the site of the original tower and stroll around the glorious Mediterranean sculpture garden in which you can discover a Henry Moore and even an Auguste Rodin masterpiece. During the Spring and Summer months the Foundation organises a number of superb jazz concerts so keep an eye out for local press information. In nearby Capdepera, providing you time it right, there is a wonderful annual medieval market which takes place during the third week of May and a visit to the landmark castle is a must.

If you're feeling flush, visit Ses Rotges, an elegant restaurant with French menu and romantic patio, offering scrumptious fare or Los Olivo's for excellent meat and fish dishes served on a lovely terrace.
