The beach is mainly visited by residents of ses Salines, Palma and other villages nearby, they have a holiday house here, and since the construction of the coastal promenade there are also more tourists.

The accessibility by car is easy to es Dolç, although you will have to park quite far away and walk 250 metres to reach this beach, the same distance as to the nearest bus stop. At about three hundred metres from the coast you can see the small island of na Guardis (with Punic and Ebusitan rests) and other small islands that are the natural barrier to preserve the cleanliness of the sand and the marine ground.
