I told you about my beach holidays on Majorca and so far I just showed two photos of a beach. It seems I spent more time sightseeing than sunbathing! One of the best beaches I have seen on Majorca was Cala Mesquida (in this photo) which is located in the north east part of the island in the Cala Ratjada area.

Guidebooks mention that Cala Ratjada and surroundings are like Little Bavaria. Indeed, we didn’t hear there any other language than German. It is a bit ironic. I spent seven years in Germany and I remember some comments addressed to foreigners, saying “if you are in Germany you should speak German”. I didn’t mind because I speak German, but it was not easy for other scientists. But the tourists there didn’t bother trying to speak Spanish. Few of them stopped us on the street and started to speak German straight away. Never mind that, I always wanted to learn foreign languages anyway.

Cala Mesquida was one of the most amazing beaches I have seen on the island. In fact, it may be the best beach for families with children on Majorca. The sand was really clean and fine and water clean and shallow. The whole setting amazing. BUT the wind was very strong with huge waves approaching, so they raised the red flag prohibiting the entry to the sea. Ironic again because formally it is declared a blue flag beach. Later on, I read in a guidebook that this beach is known for strong winds all year round...

The name Cala Mesquida reminds me another picture in my gallery entitled Mezquita. Click here to see it.
