Ses Covetes

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.

Municipality information Campos

The municipality of Campos is situated in the southern and south-eastern region of Majorca (Migjorn). The name of Mozarab origin comes from the flat landscape surrounded by hills and adjacent to the sea. King Jaume II named it town in 1300.

As the etymology indicates, Campos is a municipality which is quite flat (ses Gometes, 121 metres). There is an important system of dunes in es Trenc, which separates the second most important wetland of Majorca, es Salobrar (330 hectares of extension), from the Mediterranean Sea. In 1984 this area (1492 hectares) was declared as Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès because of the scientific richness and the landscape. The farming and the dairy activity used to predominate in Campos until the seventies of the 20th century, when the fabrication, commerce and transport of construction materials began to lead the economy.

The cycling routes allow to access the most important arquitecture and landscape corners of the village and the rest of the municipality. You should visit Balnerari de la Font Santa to take a bath in the only thermal springs of the Balearic archipelago. The clorurosodic water of 38,7°C helps to treat rheumatism, neuralgias, paralyses, visceral obstructions, osteoarthritis, nephritis and skin diseases.

On Thursdays and Saturdays you are recommended to visit the street market to know the typical products, the people and the habits. Here you can also find the ingredients for the typical dish, the cazuela de caza.
The municipality has 8 beaches.
