Lovely little protected beach only a short drive from Alcúdia. Stunning views across the bay. Well worth the trip so the kids can swim.

This is one of the best bays in Alcudia and we visit often,unfortunatly it has possibly the worst beach bar in Mallorca. Staff are rude and aggressive and dont want to serve tourists, Recomend the beach but take your own refreshments.
