Son Matias Beach
Son Matias Beach is the closest beach to Magaluf and when you go there, you will notice that the atmosphere is different, much more party-like and lively, at any time of the day. Its large extension allows you to enjoy a spot on the beach for your towel and umbrella without being crowded, even in the high season months. Magaluf is one of the best party areas on the island, so we recommend you visit it one day during your holiday if you want to give it your all on the dance floor.

It is a sandy beach of fine white sand and crystal clear waters, which attracts many tourists year after year. This is a perfect beach to relax and spend a real holiday day.

This sandy beach has a large promenade with activities for the little ones, bars, restaurants, souvenir shops, etc. Here you will find all the services you need within a few steps, which is why it has been considered one of the best areas of Palmanova to stay in.
Son Caliu Beach
Son Caliu Beach is located close to the Sailing Club, so it can be a good option to relax before or after any of the water activities you have booked.
