Summary of the Beach Inspectors
If you like long, natural beaches with fine sand, you can strike lucky on the holiday island of Majorca, for example on Playa Son Real in the Bay of Alcúdia in the north, where not a single house blocks the view of the surrounding woods of the nature reserve, of special interest to nature lovers and keen walkers. Bring your own provisions, and ideally a sunshade as well, so as to be well-equipped for a long relaxing beach day at this lovely spot.

Playa Son Real - Wide sandy beach in a nature reserve

In northern Majorca, in the large Bay of Alcúdia, you will find a beach called Playa Son Real. This entirely natural beach is part of a nature reserve and you can only get there on foot. The shortest route takes you there from the harbour at Son Serra de Marina, which is a good place to park your car.

There's no development to spoil the harmony at Playa Son Real, with its beautiful natural landscape, the fine light sand of the beach, the turquoise sea, and the green of the woods in the background. Reddish-gold stones are dotted about, and these add an extra dash of colour to the look of the beach.

Sadly, a natural beach on Majorca cannot be without a degree of seaweed formation, sometimes more and sometimes less, depending on the season of the year and other factors. If you want to enjoy this beach, you'll just have to overlook this. In the water, however, there are always large areas that are free from seaweed, at any rate once you are a few metres from land.

If you would rather explore on land, you'll find delightful footpaths the length of the beach, and these lead to other nearby bays or inland, away from the shore, where you'll be able to spot numerous local plant species or do some birdwatching. Behind Playa Son Real is a small river, the Torrent des Revellar, which has too little water to flow into the sea in summer. But in winter, when the river crosses the beach, Playa Son Real has a very different look from that of the summer months.

It's not only ramblers who like Playa Son Real - it is also appreciated by naturists and by dog-owners, whose four-legged friends are permitted here. The beach is popular with Spanish holidaymakers in particular, but also with locals and with holidaymakers from the rest of Europe, especially Germany.

No facilites and completely unsuitable atmosphere - this beach is not for families.
