Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Right next to the large harbour of Port Adriano, the sandy beach of Playa El Toro stretches out against an impressive backdrop of shimmering red cliffs. However the large apartment blocks and a hotel complex cloud the scenery of the bay, which lies in the south-west of Majorca. The lack of tourist infrastructure is one of the reasons why there's not a great deal going on at this beach, even during the summer months. You'll always find a quiet spot here, and there is a big restaurant with a large terrace. From there you have a great view of the beach and can treat yourself to local dishes. Playa El Toro is easily accessible thanks to its location near the major tourist resort of Santa Ponsa.

El Toro - Wide sandy beach with impressive rocky scenery

Each individual sunbeam makes them glow an even brighter shade of red - at least that's how it seems on a beautiful day, when all eyes are drawn to the cliffs of Playa El Toro beach. Together with the long strips of equally red sand and the bright blue Mediterranean waters they create a magnificent setting. But Playa El Toro is most definitely not surrounded by nature - the beach's profile also includes massive, faceless apartment blocks which tower into the air on both sides of the bay. A large hotel complex spreads out above the rocks in the central area of the beach and its façades have been designed to match the red tones of their surroundings.

Playa El Toro lies in the south-west of Mallorca and is also known as Playa de ses Penyes Rotjes, which means 'bay of red rocks'. It is immediately adjacent to the settlements in the south of the tourist centre of Santa Ponsa and to the resort of El Toro. The beach can be reached quickly from the island capital of Palma, 23 kilometres away, along the motorway.

With its calm and shallow waters the bay attracts mainly families. Here tourists mingle with locals, but it never gets really crowded on the beach, even in peak season. On the eastern side of the bay numerous boats anchor in the large harbour of Port Adriano. You will also find a water sports centre here, where you can rent motorboats and equipment for stand up paddle boarding. Lifeguards keep an eye on safety on the beach. However there are no beach umbrellas or loungers.

A road runs along just behind the beach, leading to the Restaurante El Toro where it ends. In the restaurant, with its large, shady terrace, you can try local cuisine including paella and mussels.

No wind and no waves here mean that this is definitely the wrong place for water-sports enthusiasts.
Party: 2/10 points
Place 10 of 96
Not much happening at this beach and you won't find any party locations here either.
