CALA RATJADA PORT

With around 200 berths, the port of Cala Ratjada is one of the most important ports in the northeast of the Balearic island of Mallorca. Many boats dock here, especially in the summer months.

Cala Ratjada is the starting point of many types of boats; it starts in the early morning hours, the many small and large fishing boats cast off. Around 7 - 8 o'clock in the morning they come back with their freshly caught load. The catch is sold to the surrounding restaurants and fish shops via the local "fisherman's exchange".

Also the excursion absolutely worth seeing”In search of dolphins” starts here in the port. On this very special excursion you can experience a beautiful sunrise and of course the dolphins, which are usually around the fishing boats.

Then there are numerous other boat trips that depart from the port of Cala Ratjada throughout the day. Like the fast ones speed boats, the Excursion with a catamaran in one of the many small bays of the northeast coast or the "Glass Bottom Boats" that go to Portocristo. The well-known party boat, which has been very popular with the younger generation in recent years, also leaves here every day.

Unfortunately, in the winter of 2016, the protective dyke wall was severely damaged. The storm that raged across the Mallorcan coast caused considerable damage to property, with costs estimated at around €350,000. Nevertheless, a visit to the small harbor is definitely recommended. A walk along the water leads past the many small restaurants, most of which not only have delicious food to choose from, but also a fantastic sea view. The path leads up to the lighthouse and on the way there you inevitably come to the small sandy bay Cala Gat over. A small beach bar is also open here in the summer months. Just sitting here and enjoying the evening with a romantic sundowner before heading back to the hotel or apartment.
