Cala sa Marjal also known as Es Ribells

Cala sa Marjal is situated at 4,1 kilometres from Son Servera. It is the widest beach of the bay of Son Servera, between sa Punta de n'Amer and Cap des Pinar, the only sandy area of this municipality with few residential constructions. It belongs to the general denomination of Costa dels Pins.

This long and not very wide beach has fine, greyish sand. This last characteristic is due to the huge quantity of organic rests of posidonia. Behind this beach we will find a big pine wood.

Anchoring boats is easy when wind from the fourth quadrant blows, in front of the landing stage of the village of Costa dels Pins, on a sandy and stony ground with a depth that ranges from two to four metres. The nearest port facilities are located at Port Esportiu de Cala Bona, at 1,3 nautical miles.

The morphological characteristics and the touristic activity explain that this coastal area is very popular amongst local and tourist families who decide to spend the summer here. This sandy area of the eastern Majorca has a medium occupancy of both types of visitors.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. You can park your private car for free in the surroundings of this beach of the bay of Son Servera. You will have to look for parking between the bushes on this esplanade. You can also reach the beach with a touristic mini-train which does the route during the summer.

Municipality information Son Servera

The municipality of Son Servera is situated in the northeast of Majorca. The name is given by the Latin word serva (name of a fruit) or an orthographic change of the family name Cervera (the Christian king Jaume I d'Aragó, after conquering Majorca in 1229, gave this territory to Jaume Cervera, a captain of his army). This municipality became definitely independent from Artà in 1837.

The landscape goes from the interior to the sea. The high interior area occupies the northern region of Serres de Llevant (Puig de Pinet, 354 metres high), with valleys, meadows and valley bottoms, with an important ecological richness, so that these 1.963 hectares were declared Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès by the Parlament de les Illes Balears in 1999. The coastal area is also known as Badia de Son Servera, which continues for two kilometres toward the interior, and is seven kilometres long. Since the sixties of the 20th century, the tourism began to lead the economy, replacing the agricultural and farming activity. This change explains the demographic explosion, as a result of the birth rate and migration from the mainland. The construction and restaurant activities are also very important in this municipality.

Its cultural variety includes Coves de Son Sard, Pula (talaiots, cases and molí), Església de Sant Joan Baptista, Pont d’en Calet, Molí de can Xesc, Ca s’Hereu or Torre des Port Nou.
The municipality has 5 beaches.
