One of the most popular beaches of the south coast by virtue of the towering presence of the imposing island of Es Vedra and her little sister, Es Vedranella.
The sandy beach runs in a wide sweep of a couple hundred metres between the towering cliffs that surround the bay and, despite the massive size of the magical island offshore, the beach still gets good waves from the open sea when the wind comes from the south.
This could be because the island is actually several kilometres offshore.
Only the foolhardy should attempt to swim to the islands, the rest of you should join us at one of the two restaurants on the sand, or make the journey to the excellent ‘Es Boldado’ restaurant perched on the cliffs at the western end of the beach.
Tomorrow is Cala d’en Serra
