S'Amarador

S'Amarador is situated at six kilometres from s'Alqueria Blanca and it belongs to Cala Mondragó, one of the most beautiful and big majorcan sea inlets, which is divided into two parts, s'Amarador and Cala de ses Fonts de n'Alís.

The depth of both coves reaches six metres on a sandy ground and they are exposed to the winds from the east and southeast. The nearest port facilities are located at Reial Club Marítim Portopetro, at 2,1 nautical miles.

Cala Mondragó was declared, in 1992, Natural Parc (785 hectares and it can be visited from Monday to Sunday) by the Parlament de les Illes Balears, and in 1995 Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès para las Aves by the European Community.

S'Amarador is a beach of fine-grained sand, with gentle slope, and a vegetation that fixes the system of dunes (pines, thistles and others). It is closed by a pond with water that comes from the torrent that flows into the sea at this sandy area, where the land turtle is being reintroduced since 1985.

This beautiful beach is less crowded that sa Font de n’Alis nearby, because it has few touristy facilities and it is impossible to get here by train from Cala d'Or.

The accessibility by car is easy. You can leave your car for free on a big parking area at five minutes from this sandy area, and this is why the beach has a medium influx of families. The beach can also be reached on foot from sa Font de n'Alis, walking for 400 metres along the coastline.

Municipality information Santanyí

The municipality of Santanyí is situated in the southeast of Majorca, Cap de ses Salines is the most southern territory of the island which is at 150 kilometres from Africa (it suffered the north African pirate attacks between the 14th and 17th centuries). The origin of the name is uncertain (three options, Latin, Arab or Mozarab). King Jaume II named it town in 1300.
The landscape goes from the interior to the sea, between unirrigated agricultural land and natural vegetation. This ecological and ethnographic richness explains that in 1992 Mondragó (782 hectares) was declared natural reserve by the Govern de les Illes Balears. The northern area includes the last part of Serres de Llevant (Penya Bosca, 280 metres high) and the southern includes a marina (3,5 kilometres toward the interior) and a coastline which is 35 kilometres long and where torrents flow into the sea, like s'Estany de ses Gambes (a water storage of 41 hectares) and es Pontàs (arch-shaped emerging rock).
Since the fifties of the 20th century the tourism began in this municipality, increasing commerce, construction, marès, gravel and pedra de Santanyí quarries (used since the Islamic period and in the most important historical buildings of Majorca, Almudaina, Castell de Bellver, Llotja or la Seu, and exported to Catalonia, France and Italy).
The municipality has 19 beaches.
