    Beautiful but so crowded in the summer
    The beach is beautiful but like most beaches in Mallorca, it gets very crowded in the summer making it a bit uncomfortable to be in - everyone is practically on top of each other! The water is clear and beautiful, safe to swim in and very shallow. It is lifeguarded. I wouldn't recommend if you have younger children because there's not much space for them to run around in the summer since it's so crowded. The beach is in a town so there's shops and restaurants nearby and there's a beach bar and cafe on the beach. Overall I recommend if you're in the area but there are better beaches on the island.

    Busy Beach
    Gorgeous beach. A little tricky to stumble upon. Way too many people! Especially for a Friday afternoon. There was a a restaurant and you can rent umbrellas. It is gorgeous but every square inch of beach is covered in people. The water is also pretty cold in May

Small and easy to walk around, there's a little beach which was cute, plenty of food places and suitable for a quiet breakaway for a few days

Nice and clean beach. Not enough umbrellas and sunbeds, even in the beginning of October, so I can imagine how it looks during the peak of the summer season...
Warm and clean sea, suitable for kids.
Nice beach bar

Fine sandy beach. A bit crowded. Sunset and sunrise lovers should avoid it, as these phenomena cannot be observed from this beach. A very annoying thing is that the water, very clean in the morning, after lunch fills up with a lot of rubbish, packaging debris, household waste, pieces of plastic etc.

Beach is small but never felt crowded, town is small and tired but lovely peaceful and safe. The sea is quite cool at that time of year but not unbearable and nice to counterbalance with the hot sun.

We visited this beach today, considering it is only April and isn’t ‘holiday season’ yet, this is quite crowded for the time of year. The beach/bay give amazing views and the water is a lovely clear light blue colour. There were ladies walking around offering massages, we opted for a upper body massage for €10 and it was amazing! The lady did around 15-20 minutes each of us, so a tip was definitely warranted. There’s a restaurant and a bar along the edge of the beach and some shops closer to the main road too.

A lovely bay with nice quiet beach and a relaxed vibe. A classic holiday brochure destination. Not much "frontage" or public areas to speak of, lots of private residences and exclusive developments have bagged the best spaces so if you are looking to be able to enjoy long walks along the seafront this is not the place for you. A busy road lies behind lined with the usual collection of restaurants, cafes and necessary shops. Not much of interest unless you visit the Joan Miro centre.

Overall a lovely beach, there are many restaurants and shops nearby. My only problem is that it is so crowded because the beach is so small. Everyone is practically on top of one another, so I would personally think twice if you are with young kids who like to play in the sand. Other than that, the water is beautiful and it is a lovely beach.
