Cala Ratjada is a well-established resort and port on the beautiful northeast coast of Majorca that up until recently was virtually undiscovered by British tourists. As a result, it is completely unspoilt, allowing you to enjoy delightful coastal promenades, as well as an abundance of traditional restaurants and tapas bars. Not to be missed is a haggle in the excellent Saturday market in the old town; a great opportunity to treat yourself to some leather goods or pick up a souvenir! The area is beautiful with a dramatic coastline and many sandy bays, perfect for wonderful coastal walks. Walkers will enjoy our organised weekly group walks in the surrounding countryside, and golfers will appreciate the choice of golf courses in the area.
Join us for a guided excursion around the north of this beautiful island. We stop in the popular Port d'Alcudia with its beautiful clean beach, and long, flat beach promenade abundant with shops and cafés, contrasting its old Roman site, and perfectly restored city walls and ancient houses. We continue to the beautiful old town, resort and harbour of Puerto Pollensa.The hotel offers excellent facilities including a large indoor pool with hydro jets, saunas and steam rooms, as well as a lovely outdoor pool and terraces.
Please Note: Flight-inclusive packages are available at an extra cost, with flights from London Gatwick and other regional UK departure airports and one piece of checked-in luggage included.
Today we fly from the UK to Palma. You will be transferred to your hotel, alternatively, if you have made your own travel arrangements, we will meet you at the hotel.
At the start of your bridge holiday, you’ll be invited to join our bridge director and host for a welcome meeting in the hotel. Any single travellers will have the opportunity to find a partner for the bridge room.
Our bridge programmes will vary according to the length of your break, and, in addition to playing bridge, we try to include interesting bridge seminars, hosted by your EBU-qualified director.
Your duplicate bridge will be available every evening between 7:45pm and 11:15pm. We endeavour to vary these evening sessions, balancing between teams and pairs and featuring at least one Swiss event during a two-week break.
Bridge will also be offered some afternoons between 2:30pm and 4:45pm. These sessions are normally given over to open pairs/teams.
Masterpoints are awarded on evening bridge sessions, and on day sessions with over 5 tables.
During your bridge holiday, nothing is obligatory, and you can play in as many or as few bridge sessions as you wish. We don’t forget you are on holiday and our bridge programmes also allow time to relax, giving the opportunity for you to explore the surrounding area.
