We found this beach to be crowded, with only a small area of sand to sit on. The worst thing was the sea was full of pieces of plastic wrapper. After visiting twice we decided not to go again.

This beach has all you need, but I would recommend bringing your own refreshments. If you are in the area, this would be your best option.

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.
