Cala Moltó

Cala Moltó is situated at three kilometres from Cala Ratjada. This beach, Cala Agulla and Cala Mesquida were declared in 1991 Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès by the Parlament de les Illes Balears.

This quite small coastal area is located behind Punta des Gulló, and it has a characteristic shape and a rocky ground. This natural setting is only spoilt by some escars and a bunker of the Civil War, the rest takes the visitor back to the paradise of quiet isolation surrounded by some pine trees shaped by the wind.

The coast is open to the winds blowing from the northeast and east and you are not recommended to anchor here on a sandy and stony ground with a depth of five metres. You will have to be very careful. The wind might change direction suddenly, with a risk of running aground, and this is why you are recommended to anchor away from the coast. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic Cala Ratjada, at three nautical miles.

The accessibility by car is easy. You have to take the deviation toward Cala Agulla on the road between Capdepera and Cala Ratjada, which finishes on a pay-parking area (2,1 euros), open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. the last half kilometre until the beach has to be done on foot.

These characteristics and the accessibility explain that the beach is not very crowded by local visitors and tourists, and nudism is normal.
From Cala Moltó you can start a 10 kilometres walk between pine trees and scrubland toward Cala Mesquida.

Municipality information Capdepera

The municipality of Capdepera is situated in the northeast of Majorca, and it is the most eastern area. the name is given by the Latin word Caput petrae (“stone head”). King Jaume II named it town in 1300. It suffered pirate attacks between the 14th and 17th centuries.

In the interior western and southern area you will find Muntanyes de Sos Sastres (Puig des Racó, 385 metres high) and Serra de Sant Jordi, which belong to Serres de Llevant. Between these and the coastal mountains there are the valleys of sa Mesquida and Canyamel, with water resources, agricultural activity and arqueological sites. The coastline of Capdepera is more than 25 kilometres long, and it is formed by a low rocky coast, and it has the second most important port by quantity of fish of the Balearic archipelago, Cala Ratjada.
