Majorca is not all beaches and tacky tourist outlets. As you go to the north–eastern side of the island, Majorca undergoes a remarkable transformation; changing from high-rise apartment blocks and hotels to the calmer shores around Cala Ratjada, where your hotel is located. You are now firmly in Mallorca, with its Hispanic spelling and atmosphere, rather than in the land of its Anglo-Saxon translation! You have the chance to explore the real Mallorca from your base at the Hotel Bella Playa, just a few metres from the stunning beach of Cala Agulla.

  • 7 nights hb in Cala Ratjada, North-East Mallorca
  • Three included walks
  • Walk directly from the hotel

DAY ONE: Flight to Palma. On arrival, you will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel, the Bella Playa, for seven nights half board accommodation. Transfer time 50 minutes.

DAYS TWO TO SEVEN: There are three walks arranged especially for Preferred Travel Services Customers (details below). In addition, the hotel has its own programme of outings (daily except Sunday), including our featured walks and other additional activities such as a bike ride to Arta (bike hire approx £9).

Walk 1: Cala Ratjada introductory walk. You will head into the dunes of Cala Agulla, and then go around the peninsula of Cala Ratjada, via Cala Lliteras before arriving at the lighthouse, located at an altitude of 70m, and from where you can see the neighbouring island of Menorca. Then you follow the coast down to beautiful Cala Gat and on to Cala Ratjada port. The distance to here is 6 miles: the walk will finish at the port and our experience is that almost all customers will indeed be happy to finish there. However, your walking guides will assist anyone who wishes to extend the walk, by continuing in the direction of Font de Sa Cala, a further 2 miles each way.

Walk 2: The mountains of S’heretat and Sa Cove Negre hill. You head first along the coast to Na Taconera, and then cross the hills and take a stony path up to 230m in altitude, before descending to Capdepera, where there is the chance to visit the castle. 7 miles approx.

Walk 3: You head through the pine forest and cross the Es Munt Gros dunes, before going along the coast to the Punta des Boc (80m high). You will return along a cobbled path passing through Cala Molto and Cala Agulla. This walk is 11 miles long. A shorter version may also be available.

Nearby is the ascent to the Son Jaumell watchtower, 270m up – you may wish to return this way on a free day and do the climb.From Cala Ratjada there are bus services to Palma and other places on the island. Near Canyamel can be found the Arta Caves, full of amazing rock formations such as the ‘Queen of Pillars’. The caves were a place of refuge for 2,000 Arabs in 1229 when hiding from King Jaume I when the Christians conquered Mallorca.

DAY EIGHT: Free time until your departure transfer to the airport for your flight home.

This was a fabulous holiday, excellent walks, giving ideas for further exploration. The hotel is very superior and elegant, great position, lovely food and help yourself to picnic for lunch. Gorgeous beach. Can't wait to book for Autumn and Next Spring.

Mrs L, West Yorkshire

After each walk we would go into the spa and reinvigorate ourselves. The spa was excellent. We also thought the bar staff very friendly and efficient. Totally delightful. Many thanks to Kico, Julio and Hayo for making our holiday so pleasurable. Brilliant organisation, very informative and good fun!

Mrs H, Exeter

Great hotel, food and service. Interesting walks in a lovely part of Mallorca. Really appreciated learning about the history and ecology of the area from our knowledgeable walking guides. Great holiday!

Mrs H, Edinburgh

Just returned from the walking holiday in Mallorca and would like to extend our appreciation for arranging such a memorable time for us. Everything went according to plan; the weather was perfect for walking and everyone in our group got on well with each other. Bella Playa Hotel could not be better.

Mr and Mrs B, Hants

My friend and I have just returned from a terrific walking holiday in Mallorca. All arrangements went to plan and the walks were excellent and varied. The hotel facilities were very good and food was superior to comparable hotels that I have stayed in.

Mrs A, Glasgow

My sister and I have just experienced a fabulous walking holiday in Mallorca staying at the Bella Playa hotel in Cala Ratjada. It was our first walking holiday being keen walking enthusiasts living very close to our Lake District. We absolutely loved it, especially with the help of the excellent guides. We made lots of new friends. We are already talking about next year. Thinking of Cyprus this time.
