Must see in Majorca
Platja de Palma
Platja de Palma is the biggest piece of coast of the capital of the Balearic archipelago (4,6 kilometres long, divided into 15 beaches), situated 14 kilometres east from this town, although the last part belongs to the municipality of Llucmajor.
The name of Platja de Palma was established by sociedad Mar de Mallorca, which used to exploit the beach (sun loungers, umbrellas, bars and refreshment stalls), to unify by one name Cala Estància, Can Pastilla and s’Arenal.
The coast has fine-grained sand and gentle slope, which makes bathing easier for small children. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic s’Arenal, at 2,5 nautical miles toward west.
The natural vegetation of the dunes ecosystem which retains the sand was destructed and nearly disappeared in 1989. therefore 400.000 tons of sand where introduced to give the beach the spectacular present dimensions.
Parallel to the coast there is the biggest concentration of hotels in Majorca and one of the most importants in the Mediterranean area. Between 1960 and 1968 the biggest part of these hotels were built and at the end of the 20th century the coastline was redesigned, with palms along a new promenade and road traffic was limited.
This beach is the best example for mass tourism at Majorca, with a very high occupancy and the gathering of thousands of tourists and residents. The accessibility by car is easy. There is no parking area for private cars next to the coast. This is why we recommend the public transport, the nearest bus stop is located at 50 metres.
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).
Platja de Muro
Platja de Muro is situated at three kilometres from the centre of Port d’Alcúdia, and at 15 kilometres from the centre of Muro, between the breakwater of s’Oberta del Parc Natural de s’Albufera, (which can be visited for free) and the natural border toward Platja d’Alcúdia, which is the prolongation of it. We have to say that the general name Platja de Muro is used for the 5,2 kilometres of coastline which belong to the municipality with the same name.
This quiet beach with fine-grained sand and which is not very deep for the relief of the parents and the tourist who crowd this place. You have to walk quite a lot before the water gets deeper. At the rear you will find the system of dunes and the different trails, with some pine trees and juniper woods, as well as the development of villages and hotels, a quality tourism with good hotels, most of the visitors are families.
The extensive sandy grounds, the very gentle slope the presence of sandbanks and the fact that it is open to the winds of the first quadrant explain that running aground is possible. This is why the navigator should stay away from the coast. The water is transparent, the swell is moderate or quiet, the sand is fine-grained and golden, ideal for all types of visitors.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The private car can be left for free in the streets that take to this beach. The nearest bus stop is located at about a hundred metres from this beach if you chose the public transport.
