Easy

This delightful easy circular walk is full of variety and Mallorcan charm! Cala Ratjada is not necessarily known for its walking, but on this route we discover a small corner of the island with a stunning coastline, a very active fishing port, and a lovely coastal resort with a very different atmosphere to those in the south-west or north western parts of the island.

We set off from the pretty port of Cala Ratjada following the coastal path to Cala Gat and heading up to the light house via a narrow coastal path. There is a tiny bit of scrambling involved along this path that has deteriorated in places, but we get lovely views along the way, and it's a great spot from which to watch the cormorants dive for their prey.

We continue around the headland of Cap de Capdepera, passing the ruined Torre de Embucada and enjoying spectacular views of Menorca on a clear day. Crossing some open heath-land we then meander along easy sandy paths through pine woods, and zig-zagging through some "urbanisations" we finally arrive at the S-E end of Cala Agulla. From here we take a lovely shaded, sandy path through the woods back to where we started in the bustling Port of Cala Ratjada.
