Cala Rotja

Cala Roja is situated at nine kilometres from Artà, between na Terres and Cova dels Alberdans.

From this beautiful beach there will be again a flat coastline, in coincidence with the valley of Torrent de Canyamel, which gives the name to a beach nearby as well as to a village.
Until this geographical point the coast is characterized by the mountains, with a very shaped profile between the nearby Punta des Pi and na Terres. Nevertheless, this sea entrance, which is divided into two parts by a rocky headland, is surrounded by medium-high cliffs.

The water in this marine area between the nearby Cala Roja and Cap des Pinar are really excellent for diving and speleodiving, you will be able to see the rocky prolongation of the walls of three tunnels (Cala Roja), a submarine cave at a depth of seven metres (Punta des Pi), a lot of crevices, galleries, open spaces and a large variety of underwater fauna until a depth of 20 metres (in the area of sa Bategora des Gegant and rock that emerges in front of these cliffs) or the cave Cova del Congre at a depth of 20 metres (Cap des Pinar).

The proximity to Torre de Canyamel makes it possible to reach on foot the defence tower of the 13th century which is one of the most populars in Majorca because of its windows with Roman arch, battlements and other particularities.

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.
The landscape goes from the interior to the sea. 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).
The cultural variety includes Coves de s'Ermità, the talaiotic village of es Claper des Gegants, Torre de Canyamel, Església de Sant Bartomeu, Castell and Far de Capdepera, Torre Cega-Palau de Can March.
