Wonderful place to relax...walk on the beack or along the dunes path. Just beware if you are offended by nudity stay close to the Son Bou end! Very clean, crystal clear sea.

Great beach, white sand, clear water, beach equipment available on payment. It worths the walk to reach it.

We were in walking distance of the beach so never had to use the parking facilities. The beach was very popular and the car park always seemed very busy so I'd suggest it'd be an early (ish)start to guarantee a parking spot... More
