Virgin beach surrounded by pine trees
Cala Agulla is a beach of sand and rocks located in the municipality of Capdepera and very close to the urban center of Cala Rajada. With 560m in length and about 50m in width it is the largest sandy area in the municipality. Its sand is white and fine, alternating with some areas of rocks, and the waters are clean and crystal clear.
As a curiosity, depending on how the wind blows the beach can increase or decrease its width by up to 10 m: if it blows from the west, the beach widens, and if it blows from the east, it narrows.
It is located within a Natural Area of Special Interest, which has limited the urbanization of the environment, keeping it virtually virgin.
The waters are usually very calm and there is not much depth, so it is very suitable to go with small children. However, being oriented to the north, sometimes a strong wind can rise, so you have to be attentive to weather conditions and respect the instructions of the lifeguards.
It is surrounded by pine trees so if you get tired of the water you can enjoy a walk in nature in the shade. To the north is Cala Moltó, a rock cove smaller than Cala Agulla, but quieter, and where you can practice nudism.
In the central summer months (July and August) it can be somewhat saturated with tourists (especially Germans staying in Cala Ratjada), so if you are looking for some tranquility it is better to enjoy Cala Agulla in early or late summer. September and October are still good months to visit this beach.
It is easily accessible by road from Capdepera following the Ma-15 in the direction of Cala Rajada and taking the detour to Cala Agulla, 1.6 km away. There is parking fee (€5 per day per car, €2.5 for motorcycles; if you are going to leave to return later, you must notify).
You can also go by bus, several lines pass through Cala Ratjada, and you can very easily reach Cala Agulla, 1 km away.
It has lifeguard service, showers, toilets and rental of umbrellas and hammocks (although there is plenty of room to put your own towel and umbrella). There are also kiosks, bars and beach bars where they serve refreshments and snacks, and a restaurant where you can enjoy varied food for around €15-20 per diner.
Regarding sports and other activities that can be done in Cala Agulla, there are beach volleyball nets, and you can rent pedal boats, kayaks and paddle surf boards.
Scuba diving trips are also organized from Cala Agulla, although the beach itself is not suitable for practicing this sport because of its shallow depth.
It has several pedestrian and equestrian trails that connect Cala Agulla with other nearby coves (Cala Moltó and Cala Rajada are the closest, but you can also reach Cala Mesquida.
Cala Agulla is the starting point and arrival of an excursion that runs along the less traveled coast of Capdepera: Es Gulló, Cala Moltó, Cala Mesquida, the watchtower of Son Jaumell, and return to Cala Agulla. It is a route of about 8 km that can be done in about 3 hours.
In the surroundings of the same Cala Agulla there are several rustic farms that are offered as holiday rentals. If you are looking for hotels, apartments or other accommodation, the closest is in Cala Ratjada, where there is a wide variety of accommodation of all types and prices.
