Flora and fauna
Majorca’s eastern peninsula is made up of a wide range of habitats.
Parc de Llevant is a 1,700 hectare nature reserve that provides special protection for birds, and is home to colonies of Audouin’s gulls, Eleonora’s falcons, booted eagles and sparrowhawks. It is also renowned for its colonies of Hermann’s tortoises.
Also well worthy of note in this region is the wealth of flora. Visitors will be able to admire pine and holm oak forests, as well as the vegetation typically associated with Majorca’s characteristic garigue.
The local cuisine is renowned for its mouth-watering flavours and variety. Traditional dishes include frit de porc (stir-fried pork, potatoes and peppers), tumbet (Majorca’s version of ratatouille), arròs brut (a meat and vegetable rice dish) and sopes mallorquines (vegetables and meat simmered slowly with bread to soak up the stock).
Sobrassada is Majorca’s best-known cured meat, made from pork, bacon and paprika.
Historia y cultura
One of the island’s greatest archaeological jewels is to be found in the borough of Artà, just 15 km from Cala Rajada.
The Talaiot settlement of Ses Païses is a prehistoric site dating back more than 3,000 years.
Other local sites of interest include the imposing Torre de Canyamel, a huge 12th century fortified tower, the medieval Capdepera Castle and Betlem Shrine, which offers breathtaking views over Alcúdia Bay.
Leisure and free time
This stretch of Majorca’s coastline is a paradise for outdoor activities such as sailing, windsurfing, beach volleyball, canoeing, water skiing, fishing and scuba diving, and also boasts outstanding facilities for playing football, tennis, basketball and golf.
Cycling fans will love the wide choice of cycling tourism routes that are the ideal way of discovering new and surprising natural landscapes. Cala Rajada is also the starting point of several signposted hiking, trekking and Nordic Walking trails that make their way both inland and along the coast.
The beaches and surroundings
Its 40 km coastline is dotted with superb beaches bathed by crystalline waters, including Cala Agulla, Cala Lliteres, Cala Moltó, Son Moll and Cala Mesquida. Cala Rajada lighthouse is the easternmost point of the island, and the closest to the port of Ciutadella, and from where it is possible to catch a glimpse of Minorca’s coastline.
Cala Rajada lies in Majorca’s north-eastern region. Today, this former fishing village has become the principal coastal resort in the borough of Capdepera.
