A low key, family friendly beach with breath-taking scenery in the northeast of Mallorca.

featured in Beaches Updated

Surrounded by glorious pine forest and the mountains of the Llevant Natural Park, this scenic beach is around 500 metres long and 50 metres wide. Enjoying its ‘Blue Flag' status, Cala Agulla offers bright, fine sand and clear water with a turquoise hue. This beautiful spot attracts both tourists and locals alike with its wild beauty and combination of sand dunes, pine trees and desert plants.

Here you’ll find sun beds and parasols available to rent, lifeguards on duty, as well as public toilets and outdoor showers. Bear in mind that wheelchair and stroller access is limited as there is a short, sandy walk between the street and beach. Likewise, there is no covered area or boardwalk, so be sure to bring your sun hats and beach shoes to protect you from the summer heat.

There are casual beach bars spread across the beach, and a restaurant with seated dining offering a selection of sandwiches, snacks and ice cream. For further dining options, Cala Lliteres is only 200 metres away.

If you’re looking to continue your holiday vibes well into the evening, just over 1 kilometre away is holiday hub - Cala Ratjada. It’s town centre offers several bars and clubs for those wanting to let their hair down.

Again, Cala Ratjada is one of the most picturesque holiday resort towns on the island, where you’ll find a selection of hotels and accommodation options.

Setting & Location

Located on the Artá peninsula, Cala Agulla is situated in a protected area close to the town of Capdepera and holiday resort Cala Ratjada in the northeast of Mallorca (a popular destination for Scandinavian tourists and Germans).

Remaining largely unspoilt, it’s the largest beach on the eastern tip of the island, measuring around 500 metres long and averaging approximately 50m in depth.

Water Safety & Clarity

Shallow, clear waters allow for gentle paddling and swimming. Lifeguards are on duty during the busier summer months. The water conditions are well labelled with flags, but high winds often cause larger waves, so continue to be mindful of the current conditions.

Beach Quality

The sand here is the type you’d happily sprinkle between your toes; fine and golden, perfect for sunbathing, beach games and sandcastle building. Being one of Mallorca's 'Blue-Flag' beaches, Cala Agulla is a clean and eco-responsible beach with designated areas for recycling and rubbish.

Watersports Nearby

The golden sand you’ll find here is excellent for beach sports, especially volleyball which you’ll see often with their two provided nets. In addition, there are pedalos, SUP paddle boards, kayaks, and snorkelling gear to rent, along with a banana boat during the tourist season.

Boat trips and diving trips around the local coastline are also easily sourced from beachside kiosks.


Cala Agulla is easily accessible by car with plenty of paid parking available. Some tourist buses will venture here, or you can affordably taxi from the nearby town of Capdepera. If you’re lucky enough to be arriving by boat, there are several moorings available at a greater depth but be aware of anchoring too close as there are large rocky areas in the shallows.
