Platja de Muro - Es Comú

Platja de Muro – es Comú is situated at one kilometre from Can Picafort and at 10,5 kilometres from Muro, between Casetes des Capellans, where this extensive beach begins, and the municipality of Muro, and Platja des Braç, where most of the touristic activity is.
This very long sandy area is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and virgin beaches of the bay of Alcúdia, belonging to the municipality. It is charaterized by the fine-grained clear sand, populated by juniper woods, very rare in the Balearic Islands, and pines that fix a system of dunes unique in this archipelago, which continues for hundreds of metres toward the interior until it reaches the road and where there are still a lot of trails to access this beach.

The area called es Comú de Muro is Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès within the Parc Natural de s'Albufera, with a recreational area in the interior.
The water is transparent, the swell is moderate or quiet, and the fine-grained golden sand is ideal for all types of visitors.

The accessibility by car is difficult on foot or by car, because the area of the pine wood is closed for the traffic, except at both ends where there are streets. In the surroundings there is the wetland of Parc Natural de s'Albufera, where you can see different types of birds and other animal species.

You can also reach this beach by bus. The nearest bus stop is located at about a hundred metres from this sandy area.

These characteristics explain that the beach of Platja de Muro – es Comú is not very crowded, the visitors are normally local families.

Municipality information Muro

The municipality of Muro is situated in the northeast of Majorca, and the name is given by the Latin and mozarab word murus –which means wall-. King Jaume II promoted in 1330 the concentration of inhabitants in this area.

Its flat landscape (Turons de Sant Jeroni, 129 metres high) has a coastal area, wetland, l'Albufera Gran, as well as irrigated and unirrigated agricultural land, irrigated by Torrent de Muro or Vinagrella. Cane, orchids, marine iris, marine thistle, pine trees and others are the kind of vegetation that populates this territory.

L'Albufera Gran (2.584 hectares and 32 kilometres of perimeter) has an enormous ecological importance (230 species of birds), as well as subsistence (hunting and fishing) and historical (the Roman bridge of Pol.lentia used to be in Estany des Ponts). In 1988 it was declared the first official natural reserve by the Govern de les Illes Balears.

Muro and sa Pobla are the majorcan villages that are best known for their agriculture, although the tourism began to lead the economy of the municipality in the sixties of the 20th century, replacing the agricultural activity and the extraction of sandstone, which used to be the dominating activities.

Its cultural variety includes the 48 arqueological sites. You should visit Ca na Cotxera (talaiotic village), Església Parroquial de Sant Joan Baptista, Esglesieta de la Sang, Convent de Santa Anna, where there is still a small procession organ, Pont de Morell, Possessió de Son Perera Vell and Plaça de Toros, in a former marès quarry.
The municipality has 4 beaches.
