Platja des Caragol
Platja des Caragol is situated at seven kilometres from ses Salines, and it is the most southern beach of Majorca, together with Cala en Tugores, with a rocky strip between them. The beach can be reached from the lighthouse of ses Salines, walking for 1,5 kilometres along the sea.
Es Caragol has white sand, dunes for over one kilometre toward the interior, it is not crowded at all and it is adjacent to the small island of Can Curt toward west and sa Punta Negra on the eastern side, where you can see an escar (artificial dry dock), used by fishers, and a jetty for the passenger launches.
The coast here is not very high, with slopes that range between 0,5 and two metres, under a sandbank which goes toward the sea for 200 metres, open to southeast-south-southwest and full of small islands.
These characteristics of the coast are the reason why the navigators should be careful, keeping an eye on the depth and remaining at half a mile from the coast. Nevertheless, it is possible to anchor on a sandy ground with some rocks, with a depth that ranges from three to six metres. The nearest port facilities are located at Port Colònia de Sant Jordi, at 4,2 nautical miles.
On es Caragol you will see some bunkers of the Civil War and nearby there is the finca sa Vall, private property of the March family, with a coastal strip which belongs to this Àrea Natural d’Especial Interès (3.778 hectares up to 68 metres above the sea level).
Cala Millor is situated at three kilometres from Son Servera and is the south-western border of the municipality of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar. Of its 1800 metres in length, 1.320 belong to Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, the rest belongs to Son Servera, although the visitor can’t notice it, except if looking at the coastline, which is older and more saturated in Sant Llorenç, and calle Sol Neixent is the limit between both municipalities.
Cala Pi is named by the surrounding pine trees and the torrent that flows into its water. It is situated 17 kilometres from Llucmajor and four from the talayotic village of Capocorb, declared Monumento Histórico-Artístico Nacional in 1931, which can be visited after paying a ticket.
This beach goes into the interior for half a kilometre between two vertical walls of more than 30 metres, and the visitor is received by a defence tower of the 16th century. The sand is fine, with only little slope, where we sometimes can find seaweed, and in the surroundings there is a residential area.
The navigators must know that this sandy area is the most sheltered of this area of the majorcan coast, open to south and southeast, when the wind blows from south it is difficult to exit, and near the entrance there are three stones on port side. This is why the boats should enter from the central part to anchor, if they come early and if they are not too big, because there is a depth of from two and five metres on a sandy ground. The nearest port, Club Nàutic s’Estanyol de Migjorn, is situated at four and a half nautical miles.
The accessibility by car is easy and there is a free parking area for private cars. The bus stop is very close. You will have to go down some steep stairs to reach Cala Pi. The influx of local and tourist visitors is not very massive.
