S'Arenalet des Verger o d'Aubarca is situated at 12,5 kilometres from Artà. It is one of the less frequented beaches of Majorca and only visited by the most dared local visitors for the following reasons.
This beautiful virgin coast belongs to the possessió de Aubarca, which comes from the Arab al-Bascat which means banks, where we can find Torre des Matzoc or d'Aubarca or de sa Falconera or de Sant Ferran, built in 1751, in order to watch and defend, circular, and located at 67 metres above the sea level.
This enormous white sandy area has still the presence of the marine turtle and a rocky mound in the central part of the wide coast.
The marine and underwater conditions are good for anchoring boats but you will have to be careful because it might be dangerous due to the fact that the beach is very open to the winds that blow from the northwest-north-northeast. The ground is sandy, extensive and not very deep. The most difficult navigation point is es Faralló de s'Aubarca, at 0,4 nautical miles from the coast, between Cap des Freu and Cap de Ferrutx. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic de Cala Ratjada, at 13,5 nautical miles.
The accessibility by car is complicated. You will have to cross some private fincas. This is why you are recommended to go on foot or by bicycle and protect from the sun. This is the easier way to pass the closed barrier which you will find on the last 5,5 kilometres that take to this sandy area.
