Cala Ratjada, found in the North East Coast of Mallorca, is a great place to spend a holiday as it has plenty of tours, excursions and boat trips on offer for families, couples and groups.

Our first recommendation in Cala Ratjada is to take a walk through its harbour, which still retains its traditional character, giving the port its own unique charm. In Cala Ratjada's harbour you will find a mix of fishing boats, Mallorcan "llauts" and tourist vessels. From Cala Ratjada there is an endless number of full day boat trips, catamaran trips with lunch and glass-bottom boat trips of just a few hours around the bay. From Cala Ratjada there are boat and catamaran trips to hidden beaches, secluded coves and to the Llevant Nature Park. There is even a ferry which goes to Menorca and a sunrise catamaran tour that takes you to see dolphins in the wild. In the port of Cala Ratjada we also recommend choosing one of the harbour restaurants to have seafood while enjoying a great view of the port and the sea.
In Cala Ratjada there are numerous small beaches, in the resort itself and also around the resort. Sometimes a good idea is to rent a bike and let explore the surrounding so you can find some hidden gems. Some interesting places are Cala mesquida, Cala Torta or Cala Agulla. For people that would like to visit other beaches or coves in the area we suggest Son Moll or Cala Gat, neither of which are far from Cala Ratjada. Otherwise, 15 minutes away is the breathtaking cove of Cala Agulla with a gorgeous sandy beach and crystal clear waters. Combine a walk with a swim at the beach with a visit to Cala Mesquida or Font de sa Cala.
In Cala Ratjada there is a great selection of hiking routes for those who like the outdoors. Over the last few years the Cala Ratjada Hotel Association and the town council have developed a programme to promote walking trails in and around Cala Ratjada to attract visitors out of high season. As a result there is a wider offering of treks for all levels from easy to difficult, from short to long. Two beautiful walks which are suitable for all levels are from Cala Ratjada to Font de sa Cala and from Cala Ratjada to Cala Mesquida.
Another point of interest in Cala Ratjada is the Torre Cega, a regoinalist-style building surrounded by large gardens, where there was once a watchtower. It now belongs to the Fundación March and on display is an important collection of comtemporary sculptures and splendid gardens.
Just on the outskirts of Cala Ratjada we find its lighthouse, which is also worth a visit and can be reach on foot or by car from Cala Ratjada and is especially noteworthy for its excellent panoramas.
Two of the most interesting villages close to Cala Ratjada and well worth a visit are Arta and Capdepera. Arta has a very interesting weekly market on Tuesday, and Capdepera is home to one of Mallorca's castles.
