Cala Ratjada boasts some particularly beautiful beaches. The beach Son Moll offers a wide variety of beach activities and watersports from the more traditional beach volleyball to the more daring banana boat rides but if speeding around clinging to an inflatable isn’t what you want from your holiday in Cala Ratjada, a visit to Cala Agulla will take you away from the commotion of beachside frolicking.
You could be forgiven for not wanting to leave the seashore, but with countless exciting activities throughout the area, it’s well worth tearing yourself away. For the exercise-inclined, you could spend your holiday in Cala Ratjada horse-riding, playing tennis, cycling or golfing on any of the four local courses. For something slightly less exuberant, a hike through the surrounding forest area is unmissable.
