Es Carregador

Es Carregador is situated at five kilometres from Cala Ratjada and located on the opposite of Punta na Baixa and in front of the sea inlet which leads to the cove of n'Aguait.

This piece of coast is formed by four coves with coarse gravel and some sand, hidden behind a barrier of tamarisks that reach the coastline with rocks and seaweed of greenish and bluish colours.

These coves are also used as landing ramps for small boats. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic Cala Ratjada, at 1,6 nautical miles.

The accessibility by car is rather complicated if you do not know the way. The private car can be left on a platform. From here you will start a half kilometres walk along the coast until you reach the first cove, the rest of them follow each other. You are recommended to use the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located at half a kilometre from the coast. You will pass some small fishers houses and some old holiday houses, built some decades ago.

From es Carregador you can start a short walk until the port of Cala Ratjada. It is a distance of more or less eight kilometres return along the coast.

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.
