    If you get bored getting burnt on the beach you can visit Capdepera, a small town 2km away from Cala Ratjada.

    It’s a quiet small town that houses a medieval castle (that dates from 1333) on the top of the hill while modern city spreads downhill.

    We loved visiting Capdepera because it was during the medieval festival that takes place on the third weekend of may. That weekend Capdepera gets packed with visitors that come and enjoy local products that were typical in that era, most of the small streets are full with stalls that sell for low prices beer, shrimps, fried squid etc while folk medieval music comes from every corner, usually from violin players. Walking inside the festival (it’s like a huge open market actually) and eating from different stalls we easily filled our hunger but also got happy with the beers although it was challenging going up and down the hilly town through the winding alleys :)

    I guess all the other days Capdepera must be very quiet but I wouldn’t miss the chance to see it anyway. Inside the town there’s also a central square (Placa Orient) where you can find some café/restaurants and a near by church.

    Cala Ratjada is just another seaside resort with not much interest for the average tourist, it is just a place for those who seek just a resort of this kind with the beach a stone throw away. We noticed a lot of germans around but that is something normal everywhere in Mallorca the last years.

    What you can do here is swimming at the main beach(Platja de Son Moll) but it gets crowded so you may want to try some others but you drive a bit to the north for them (Cala Guya, Cala Agulla, Cala Mesquida). The general area that belong to Capdepera municipality coves a 42km long coastline including many nice and clean beaches, all of them with Blue Flag.

    Apart from swimming you can also walk along the the promenade (Avinguda America), there you can find numerous cafes/restaurants, ideal for a small or long break with just the sea in front of you watching the people passing by. You can also walk to the lighthouse of Capdepera (2km away) that was built in 1861 and has a nice view over the town.

    Last but not least don’t miss the market that takes place every Saturday. On july 16 you can attened the fiesta of the patron saint of Cala Ratjada, La Virgin del Carmen, which is the patron saint of the sailors.

    Otherwise known as Faro del Cap de Capdepera, the landmark of Cala Ratjada is its white lighthouse. It is on the Cap de Capdepera about 2 km far away from the city centre. The view over the port and city is well woth the walk.
