Located in the northeast of Mallorca, you will find Cala Agulla close to Capdepera and Cala Ratjada.
The beach itself is located on a little inlet with lots of vegetation and trees around it. The inlet makes the beach a protected area from any rough winds, and therefore the sea is mostly calm here.
You can visit Cala Molto from here, a spectacular cave that is about 5 minute’s walk away.

Paraiso de Barbassa offers lunch based on maritime fish dishes and other specialities from Mallorca.
