This article is part of a series in which I am reviewing the local climbing spots on Mallorca from my beginner / intermediate climber point of view.
The bay is flanked by a series of about six meter cliffs and caves to the right side (looking out to sea). The first climbs can be found at about the same high as the yellow buoys in the water. Further out in the caves there is definitely potential for more.
I found the rock here quite slippery (as it gets sprayed with sea water all the time) and the climbing therefore harder than the holds might suggest.
There is some information on UKClimbing as well - however the climbs described there are a bit unsafe for my liking due to rocks in the „landing zone“.
Overall not an area for serious climbing but still good for some fun and games.
You can park your car above the beach in the settlement on the way to the Cala Ratjada lighthouse and walk down in a few minutes.
The good, the bad and the ugly
A very pretty beach that also has a small bar. The climbing itself is fun and there might be possibilities for new lines.
The beach is quite busy and small - not great if you want to avoid crowds. The climbing spots are close to the coastal promenade: Good for photos but you also put on a show for the tourists walking there while climbing.
PS: On this visit we did not take the best pictures as one of us had to stay on the crowded beach.
