Information about the beach

Platja de Son Saura
Arenal de s'Olla de Son Saura, Arenal de Son Saura, Arenal de s'Olla or Platja de Son Parc (original name) is situated next to the village Son Parc, located between Cap Gros and na Tortuga, as well as at 14 kilometres from es Mercadal and 15 from Alaior. This sea inlet is characterized by having a quite big size, the beach is sandy, there is a system of dunes with fixing vegetation (pine trees, bushes and scrubland), low cliffs with natural breakwaters, the orientation is toward north, a gentle breeze, a moderate swell, sea currents, a gentle slope, transparent water, and it is a semi urban beach (on the right side there are apartments and on the left side there is a restaurant).

The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are not safe, it is a bad shelter if the weather is not good. There are some stones on both sides of the natural entrance. If the navigator wishes to anchor in the surroundings, he should continue toward the nearby Cala Pudent (for small boats).

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The last part is in bad conditions. The drivers are recommended not to drive through the dunes to park the car near the water. The private car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings. You can also reach this beach with the public transport from Maˇ and Fornells during the summer.

These characteristics explain that the beach is not too crowded by local visitors and tourists.
