Nudist Beaches in Capdepera
The town of Capdepera lies about 3 kilometres inland on the north eastern tip of Majorca and is the closest point to the neighbouring island of Menorca. Overlooked by the Sierra de Llevant mountains, the town and its castle served as a major fortification against potential pirate attacks. In later years a another 4 watchtowers were built to further ward off attacks. For centuries the fortifications served their purpose and the townsfolk lived a relatively trouble free existence. Eventually as attempted raids failed and dwindled the townsfolk began to relocate at the bottom of the hill outside the fortifications, resulting in modern day Capdepera. The town’s original fishing port is now the tourist resort of Cala Rachada.
Capdepera is situated about an hours drive from Palma de Majorca airport and as of yet there is no public transport between the two. The airport has car hire companies, booking in advance is always the safer option, or there are many taxis outside the terminal that will take you to Capdepera and Cala Rachada for around 90€. Travel times may vary, depending on how heavy the traffic is and taxi prices are not set in stone. Another thing worth keeping in mind is that child seats in Spain seem to be a matter of choice so those travelling with small children should always stipulate that one or more are needed when pre booking either a hire car or taxi.
Bratwurst & Sauerkraut anyone ?.. Yes you guessed it, Capdepera and its port area of Cala Rachada are extremely popular with German holidaymakers, especially during the winter months when many take extended holidays in the area. The tourist resort around the port area has a good selection of hotels, shops, bars and restaurants and there are many small beaches to choose from. During the summer months the main beach can get busy and it is not very child friendly in the sense that the beach shelves steeply into the sea, becoming deep in just a few metres. Further to the north the beaches tend to be less busy, and for the adventurous, there are 2 official nudist beaches in Capdepera.
