Cala Ratjada got few sandy beaches like Cala Agulla situated at 1,8 kilometres from Capdepera. This beach, Cala Moltó and Cala Mesquida were declared in 1991 Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès by the Parlament de les Illes Balears.
This fact explains that this coastal area is well preserved, surrounded by a thick pine wood with some huge trees, and it has not been developed. This coast is a small by, surrounded by low rocky areas and covered by a very fine-grained sand, and this is why it is the biggest sandy area of this municipality.
Its size might be larger or smaller depending on the sea currents and the moment of the year: if the wind blows from the west, the swell makes the beach grow, whereas if it blows from the east or north, the opposite happens. The air coming from the north might be a problem for anchoring boats on a sandy and stony ground, with a depth of five metres. You have to be very careful as the anchor might move.
The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic de Cala Ratjada at 2.9 nautical miles. The accessibility by car is easy. You have to take the deviation toward Cala Agulla on the road between Capdepera and Cala Ratjada, which finishes on a pay-parking area (2,1 euros), open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. These characteristics and the accessibility explain that the beach is very crowded by local visitors and tourists and it is the most popular beach amongst the residents of Cala Ratjada.
