Ses Covetes is situated at 11 kilometres from Campos. The inhabitants use to say that the name (“small caves” in English) comes from the funeral caves of the talayotic age found in the surroundings.
This calm beach, which is located between sa Ràpita and es Trenc, is a small area with white, fine-grained sand, gentle slope and divided into two areas: the one next to sa Ràpita has fine-grained sand, is two hectometres long and there are swimmers, whereas es Freu is a rocky area, less crowded, more picturesque and is only 50 metres long.
The construction of a controversial village was begun on the rocky area, but then stopped through judicial channel due to the fact that it belongs to the Àrea Natural Protegida between es Trenc and es Salobrar de Campos. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic sa Ràpita, at one nautical mile.
The beach is not too crowded. If you are coming by private car, you can park for free on an area next to the beach, and the nearest bus stop is at about a hundred metres.
The historical note takes us to the marès quarries where the pieces for the construction of the defence walls of Palma were extracted, and to the thermal spring of 38 °C, already known by the Romans, which can relieve dermatological and bone diseases, nowadays exploited by Estación Termal de Sant Joan de la Fontsanta.
