The Port of Deportivo de Cala Ratjada is located in the northeastern part of the island of Majorca, in the municipality of Capdepera.
It is part of an ancient fishing port core, which has been renovated and adapted to the needs of modern sporting activities since the 1960s. Inside the port area is also the Club Náutico de Cala Ratjada, a sailing club founded in 1975.
The port is public property. The moorings within the port area are 215 and are managed partly by the Government of the Balearic Islands and partly (more precisely, by a number of 85) by the Club Náutico de Cala Ratjada. Of these mooring berths, fourteen are reserved for crossing riders.
The stop for boats longer than 12 meters is always along the pier in public management. The permitted length for boats entering the harbor is between 4 and 18 meters. At the port mouth the draft is 7 meters, while decreases in dock, only accepting boats which have a draft of between 1.80 and 4 meters. The swells waves coming from the south and south-east can make mooring difficult, reaching even to compromise the access to the port.
The convenient location to reach the nearby island of Menorca makes it a very popular port every season of the year, especially in the summer season.
