The lovely resort of Cala Ratjada is located on a small rocky peninsula on the north east side of Mallorca in Spain. It was originally a small fishing port and whilst the pretty old harbour does still exist it is now the home of luxury yachts as well as small fishing vessels. Cala Ratjada actually translates as Bay of Rays because of the numerous picturesque coves of golden sand and the warm sunny climate which characterize the village.
You wont find the large expanses of crowded beach which are typical of other destinations on the island, as sun worshippers who holiday here come for the pretty nooks and secret bays which you can explore for miles or until you find your own private little heaven.
Indeed, this region has been recognised as an area of exceptional natural beauty and ecological significance, and parts of it have been awarded nature reserve and bird sanctuary status. This means that much of the rocky coastline and surrounding countryside is still relatively unspoilt, and the beaches are still framed by pine forests where in other areas they have been torn down to make way for development.
With airport taxis and airport shuttles from Palma Majorca Airport only 78 kilometres, this is the ideal choice for a short or long break!
