Fodor's Review

Mallorca's "Party Central" is also the site of one of the island's best beaches—a 1½-km- (1-mile-) long gentle curve of fine white sand that rates a Blue Flag designation for cleanliness and safety. The water is calm and clear, without strong currents or sudden drop-offs. A promenade of shops, bars, and restaurants runs the length of the beach, which is at the west end of the Bay of Palma, 15 km (9 miles) from the city. A favorite with young British and Scandinavian tourists, the town itself is pretty rowdy most of the time; binge-drinking episodes in recent years have earned it something of an unsavory reputation. The little knob of Black Lizard Island, about 440 yards offshore, is a challenging swim. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: swimming; walking.
