Na Patana also known as Punta de na Patana

Na Patana or Punta de na Patana is situated at 14 kilometres from Santa Margalida, between Punta des Fenicis, ses Pedreres and Arenal de ses Assussenes.

This small corner and the triangular headland are characterized by the limestone platforms, and they have a low coastline, are not very deep, they are rocky and are not very populated. The system of dunes (Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès Dunes de Son Real: area of 1.114 hectares –coastal strip which is two kilometres large and five kilometres long, including the wetlands of the torrents of Son Real and Son Bauló-, protected by the Parlament de les Illes Balears since 1991), as well as the thick and virgin pine wood in the village (Pinar des Revellar) that continue at the rear of this coastal corner.

From Punta de na Patana you can walk to visit the necrópolis de Punta des Fenicis (dated from the 8th century BC), unique and formed by some hundred aristocratic tombs, some of them are small talaiots or navetes. You can also visit the rests of the batería de Son Bauló (18th century), located on the western end of Arenal de ses Assussenes.

The marine and underwater conditions are not good for anchoring boats and approach with too much swell and wind toward land, because next to the coast the ground is not very deep and there are some flagstones. The nearest port facilities are located at Port Esportiu de Can Picafort.

Municipality information Santa Margalida

The municipality of Santa Margalida is situated in the northeast of Majorca. The name is given by this saintliness. The existence of the hagio-toponymic church is known since 1243.

The landscape is quite flat, with some canyons and torrents and there are some hills which are not very high (sa Teulada, 116 metres). The interior area occupies the biggest part of the extension of this municipality (unirrigated agricultural land and forest), whereas the coast goes toward the interior for two kilometres with a system of dunes and is nine kilometres long. The ecological richness in the area between Son Real and Son Serra (1114 hectares) explains that it was declared Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès by the Parlament de les Illes Balears in 1991.

This municipality has the most arqueological sites of Majorca per square metre (153), which indicates a strong human presence during the prehistory, whereas many margaliders emigrated toward America and Algeria during the 19th century. In the seventies of the following century the sector of service, tourism and construction began to lead the economy, replacing the agriculture and farming as well as the crisis.

Its cultural variety includes the Necrópolis de Son Real (national historical monument since 1964), the dolmen tomb of Son Bauló, Illot des Porros, Església de Santa Margalida, Casal de Santa Eulària, the possessió (rural finca) of Son Serra, Pou d'Hero.
