Set in a beautiful bay on Mallorca’s northeastern coast is the Blue Flag award winning beach of Cala Agulla. With a good-sized stretch of white sand, crystalline blue water and an unspoilt backdrop of mountainous landscape this is one of the island’s most picturesque beaches.
A short distance to the south of Cala Agulla is the resort of Cala Ratjada. Although well out of sight this does contribute a steady stream of beachgoers to the mix, meaning it is rarely quiet here. The rest of the surrounds are all part of the Llevant Peninsula Natural Park, a beautiful 1,700 hectare area of rugged hills, pine forests and coastline. This has kept development to a minimum and helps keep Cala Agulla special.
With its Blue Flag status this is a great family beach. The usually calm sea is watched over by lifeguards and there are plenty of facilities at hand. It is also a good spot for watersports such as kayaking and stand up paddle boarding, which along with pedalos are available to rent on the beach. If the wind does pick up then you will probably spot a few kite-surfers out.
Cala Agulla is easily reached by car and there is plenty of parking here. The beach is located just 2 km from the medieval town of Capdepera, which is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
