Cala Ratjada is located on the north-eastern side of the island of Mallorca, some 75 kilometres from the capital, Palma. It is the main and most developed coastal port in the Capdepera district.
Cala Ratjada is a very well-established complex and forms part of one of the islandís main tourist spots. It is a much sought-after destination by German tourists.
Before tourism set foot on its shores in the 1960s, Cala Ratjada was a small fishing port. The original port still exists and there is a lasting fishing tradition, but today the port is also a centre for water sports and recreation.
Cala Ratjada is the nearest point between Mallorca and Menorca, and it is therefore an important port for tourist trips to the neighbouring island.
