Playa de s'Hostalet
Our insider's tip for couples and people who appreciate privacy and natural surroundings, Playa de s'Hostalet is not suitable for small children or the elderly due to the steep, rocky access. On a pleasant, gentle carpet of pebbles and dried seaweed residues a few locals enjoy the peaceful idyll of the bay. Between craggy rocks the water shimmers turquoise and promises cool relief after you’ve soaked up the sun.

Playa de s'Hostalet - A secluded natural bay in the south of Majorca

The magnificent unspoiled bay of Playa de s'Hostalet lies hidden not far from Palma in the south of Majorca. Surrounded by rocks and soothing greenery, it's mainly the Majorcans themselves that spend their free time here by the sea. But on the whole the beach has relatively few visitors. Because of the steep, rocky access, which demands some climbing ability, this bay is not suitable for small children or the frail or elderly.

The beach consists of a mixture of pebbles and dried seaweed residues that form a pleasantly smooth surface. The craggy rocks on the right-hand side of the bay are an ideal retreat for couples or those seeking relaxation. You should watch out when entering and bathing in the very clean water. There's a risk you could injure yourself on the sharp stones and the rocks, which only partially protrude from the water. A few urchins have settled here as well.

The relaxed atmosphere on Playa de s'Hostalet also appeals to one or two naturists. Trees provide shade and tranquillity. Private paths belonging to the surrounding residential properties lead to the beach as well, but neither the houses, which lie above the beach, nor the paths disturb the peaceful idyll. There are no restaurants or sanitary facilities available.
