Summary of the Beach Inspectors

The beach of Cala Gat in the popular resort of Cala Ratjada on the eastern tip of Majorca is always worth a visit. You can walk here easily along the beautiful promenade from the port in Cala Ratjada and plunge into the refreshing water. Then, if you wish, you can continue your walk through the shady forest to the lighthouse at Punta de Capdepera, the easternmost point of the Balearic Island. The beach of Cala Gat offers you brilliantly clear, turquoise waters and fine sand. There’s a small beach bar where you can fortify yourself for the return trip.

Cala Gat - Small, fine-sanded bay at the eastern end of Majorca

On the eastern tip of Mallorca, quite close to the popular resort of Cala Ratjada lies Cala Gat beach. The small bay is mostly surrounded by forest. A very nice promenade runs here along the water from the port of Cala Ratjada. If you want to come by car rather than on foot you can find shady parking spots along the road in the forest.

A few well-constructed stone steps lead down to the small area of fine sand. In summer it can get very crowded here and places to lie are in short supply. The beach bar is rather small and unspectacular, but serves its purpose. Here you can hire loungers, drink delicious cocktails and obtain snacks. The few shady spots are sought after and in order to get hold of one you should either come early or bring your own sunshade on the day.

The water is almost unbelievably clear and shimmers a brilliant shade of turquoise. The completely stone-free, sandy seabed makes it a pleasure to plunge into the refreshing water. If you prefer things a little more daring, to the right of the beach below the promenade you will find rocks from which you can jump directly into the deeper water from a height of several metres.

Cala Gat means 'the bay of cats'. You won't encounter its four-legged namesakes right on the beach, but above the wooded hinterland they are present in large numbers, making Cala Gat worth a visit for animal lovers as well as for walkers, who find shelter from the midday sun on the forest paths. A visit to this beautiful bay can be nicely combined with a trip to the lighthouse at Punta de Capdepera, the easternmost point of Mallorca.
