Sheltered bay at the tiny resort of Cala Tarida with the longest and widest beach of fine white sand on this side of the island. The clean, clear waters over a sandy bottom are shallow to quite a way out on the right, deeper and more rocky to the left. The colours of the sea here are truly magnificent; turquoise, azure blue and emerald green.
There's a selection of interestingly shaped rocks to swim out to for a solitary sunbathe. No shade so take coverups. Very popular family beach.
Facilities: Some fabulous beach bars and restaurants enable you to choose from a snack to a 3-course meal. Ferry boat to San Antonio.
