The area

Fish and fishermen

Cala Ratjada owes its name to one of the most popular catches of 19th century fishermen: the ‘ratjada’ (skate). Two centuries later, the small port situated in the farthest Northeastern corner of Mallorca, is a town with a full range of services and a gastronomic offering that ensure that visitors enjoy a perfect holiday.

Coves and sandy beaches

The Natural Park of Llevant and its 40 km of coastline make this area one of the most sought after by those in search of the peace and calm of its beaches and coves, some of them only accessed after a long hike.

A coastline which is also a true lifeblood for the Mediterranean, as much of its waters fall within the Marine Reserve of Llevant. Its great biodiversity, the posidonia sea meadows and turquoise waters make it ideal for underwater pursuits. 80 km away from Palma, the capital city of the island, means Cala Ratjada attracts family and nature tourism alike.

Longstanding history

As well as the services and facilities geared to enjoy the coast, Capdepera, where Ses Rotges is located, has a magnificent historical and cultural offering. It is built around the medieval castle, a fortification that dates back to the 14th century built to protect the population from the continuous pirate attacks. It had up to 125 houses within its ramparts  and is today owned by the City Council of Capdepera, which organises a magical Medieval Market every May.
