Cala Agulla

Cala Agulla is situated at 1,8 kilometres from Capdepera. This beach, Cala Moltó and Cala Mesquida were declared in 1991 Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès by the Parlament de les Illes Balears. This fact explains that this coastal area is well preserved, surrounded by a thick pine wood with some huge trees, and it has not been developed. This coast is a small by, surrounded by low rocky areas and covered by a very fine-grained sand, and this is why it is the biggest sandy area of this municipality.

Its size might be larger or smaller depending on the sea currents and the moment of the year: if the wind blows from the west, the swell makes the beach grow, whereas if it blows from the east or north, the opposite happens.

The air coming from the north might be a problem for anchoring boats on a sandy and stony ground, with a depth of five metres. You have to be very careful as the anchor might move. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic de Cala Ratjada at 2.9 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.

These characteristics and the accessibility explain that the beach is very crowded by local visitors and tourists and it is the most popular beach amongst the residents of Cala Ratjada.

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. In this area there are lots of marine and migratory birds, the Mediterranean land turtle and the urchin.

The tourism began to lead the economy in the seventies of the 20th century, replacing the agricultural and farming activities which had no big infrastructures, and provoking a migratory current from the mainland which explains the increase of a young population and a density that is higher than the average of the Balearic Islands (170 inhabitants per sqm).
