Playa de Ses Covetes - Unspoiled sandy beach with a lovely beach bar
You will find Playa de Ses Covetes in the south of Majorca. It lies to the west of the southern tip of the island and is bordered to the south-east by the small town of Ses Covetes. Playa de Ses Covetes extends over a length of approximately 200 metres and a width of approximately 30 metres and runs seamlessly into the larger neighbouring beach of Playa Sa Ràpita at the north-west end. The area around two small bunkers forms the border between the two beaches. Painted bright white and with friendly slogans, they create an unexpectedly positive atmosphere for military buildings. You can bathe nude here as well.
A dune landscape that is under conservation and a pine forest with beautiful, shady walking trails form the backdrop to Playa de Ses Covetes beach. Apart from the first few buildings of the resort and a beach bar at the south-east end there is only one house on the beach and other than that it is completely undeveloped and unspoiled. The sand is light, fine and soft, making a beautiful and comfortable lounging area, and the path into the water is a delight. The water is exhilaratingly clear - only occasionally do you see build-ups of seaweed, mainly to the edges, and they don't cloud the bathing experience.
Unlike on the neighbouring beach, Playa Sa Ràpita, there are no water sports on offer here, but there are plenty of loungers under beautiful straw beach umbrellas. They are set up and hired out by the staff of the sole beach bar on Playa de Ses Covetes, which serves delicious fish dishes and typical Majorcan cuisine. From here you can watch the magnificent sunset over a drink.
Ses Covetes also has a small side bay, but we don't recommend it. You get lots of seaweed build-up here in the summer months, which is fortunately largely absent from the main bay.
