Traditional fishing harbours, beaches with crystalline waters, fairs, nature, and the chance to visit some Talaiotic settlements are just a few of the things that Cala Rajada and the Llevant area of Mallorca have to offer.
Cala Rajada retains the character of the original fishing port, with the typical “llauts’, a traditional Mallorcan boat, dotted around the harbour, and let’s not forget the beautiful coves that will be the backdrop to many of your holiday snaps. Don’t miss the nineteenth-century lighthouse from where you’ll get an unforgettable panoramic view of the Llevant area of the island. If you look carefully, on a clear day you can see the neighbouring island of Menorca, as this is the most easterly point of the island and the closest to Ciutadella port.
Let Llevant surprise you
It would be difficult to travel along the 40 kilometres of coastline around Capdepera without visiting one of its white sand beaches and having a dip in the transparent waters of the Mediterranean. This area also boasts incredible natural surroundings. Cala Rajada, Cala Mesquida, Font de sa Cala, and Canyamel are four of the coastal towns which offer a variety of attractive options for visitors. Capdepera has a beautiful old town, and every year plays host to the traditional Medieval Fair. Breathtakingly gorgeous views of the town and the bay are seasoned with local produce, agriculture, livestock, industry, and delicious Mallorcan cuisine between the 19th and 21st of May (dates may vary) around the city walls and Capdepera castle, a fortified structure built in the fourteenth century on the orders of King Jaume II, declared a Site of Cultural Interest (BIC), that is open to visitors all year round. The entrance fee goes towards the conservation of the cultural heritage of the Capdepera area. If you love visiting fairs, the area also hosts the Fira de la Llampuga, between the 13th and 15th of October, and the nearby Fira d’Artà is celebrated at the beginning of September.
This incomparable natural area offers unique settings such as the beaches at Cala Gat, Sa Pedruscada, Playa Son Moll, Cala Agulla, Cala Mesquida, Font de sa Cala, Cala Mitjana, Cala Torta, or the Llevant Peninsula Nature Reserve. This nature reserve has increased its protected area tenfold and is now the most extensive nature reserve in Mallorca and the Balearic Islands.
