Cala Ratjada is a purpose built holiday resort in the north east of Mallorca, popular with northern Europeans.
If you choose to walk on towards Cala Gat, the promenade gets quieter, the restaurants and bars stop and you are left with a wonderful sense of peace and tranquillity. Follow the coast round and you will find shady benches dotted along the promenade to stop and appreciate your surroundings. After a little while longer you reach Cala Gat, this is obviously where the locals go and you can see why. The beach is not as busy as Cala Moll and the area surrounding it is absolutely stunning. The cove is ensconced at the centre of some amazing rock formations offering plenty of diving platforms for the young bucks willing to prove their bravery! There is a lovely little beach bar with a very relaxed, laid-back vibe.

Setting & Location
Cala Moll is the busiest of the two beaches and lies to the south of the town. It is a nice sandy beach with access to plenty of bars and restaurants all along the coastal path.
Water Safety & Clarity
The sea is clear and a beautiful aquamarine colour but my word is it busy! Littered with hundreds of people floating about on lilos, and as for finding a spot on the beach itself, you can almost forget it during the high season.
Nice sandy beach to the south of Cala Ratjada.
It is a lovely walk from Cala Moll northwards around the bays, past lots of restaurants and bars serving every conceivable type of cuisine with every kind of atmosphere, from the hippy chic and ultra-modern, to rustic and traditional. The promenade takes you past La Ferradura, a tiny little cove, rocky but empty, leading in to the same beautiful sea. All along the path you can access the most amazing rock formations that are handy sunbathing platforms that lead you down into the cool waters. There are excellent snorkelling opportunities all along this rocky coastline. Eventually you will reach the harbour and the centre of the town. Here you can see the fishing boats and yachts whilst you enjoy a refreshing drink or meal at one of the many establishments around the harbour.
