Today, the resort boats some 16,000 beds in 61 hotels and an additional 65 self-service apartments. The major appeal is the intricate maze of caves and coves, typical of yacht charter Mallorca’s rocky eastern shore, which culminates with the 6 km long beach stretching in all its glory. For many, this is the best island on yacht charter Mallorca island so it’s definitely worth a trip.
Nearby, the resort of Cala Bona offers equally great sun bathing opportunities, as well as a chance for a day trip and can be easily reached since the two share a common promenade to the north. The more adventurous, can try to visit the nearby resorts of Sa Coma and S’Illot or the famous Caves of Drach.
