Cala Mondrago
The area is particularly suited to those looking for peace and quiet, twitchers, beachcombers and those of an independent nature with a love of the outdoors. The area attracts day-trippers and locals at weekends.

In terms of accommodation there are 2 small privately run 1-star hostals; 1 small privately owned self-catering apartment block and an all-inclusive property 2 mls away. The area has 2 fine sandy beaches: s'Amarador, which is adjacent to a car park, flanked by rocky pine-clad slopes and packed with loungers; there are 2 snack bar/restaurants. The unspoilt Mondrago Beach, reached by a low path (220 yds) curving round a rocky coastline, is over 220 yds wide and 75 yds deep and backed by small dunes, pine forests and marshland. Both beaches can get extremely crowded with day-trippers and, at weekends, coolbox-carrying locals. Main attractions include walking, hiking, bird-watching, cycling and horse-riding. There is a small picnic area with barbecue and children's playground. The area has nothing in terms of nightlife. In terms of 'food' there are 2 basic beach snack bar/restaurants and a selection of fish restaurants on harbourside at Porto Petro (2½ mls).
