  • Es Migjorn

In the south we find one of the longest stretches of sand on the island, the beach of Es Migjorn. Take a walk down its five kilometres of length and you’ll find tranquil corners, areas with rock and sand, and a variety of restaurants in the form of beach cafés. On it you’ll find the Riu La Mola hotel, the perfect place to stay while enjoying this privileged enclave.
