Es Dolç and Es Carbó beaches

What is it?

The natural beauty and isolated nature of the Es Dolç and Es Carbó beaches make them a space where you can relax and disconnect from the stress of daily life.  The fact that there is a path accessing the two beaches (even though the last part is not cobbled) means that lots of trips are made here, especially by families.  Es Dolç beach also has leisure services, with boats and kiosks.

Detailed description

Es Dolç beach is round 300 metres from the Colònia de Sant Jordi, an old fishing village that has become a highly attractive tourist destination.  There is a stone path leading directly from the end of the beach in the Colònia de Sant Jordi harbour to Es Dolç beach.

Es Dolç is a stretch of dunes some 350 metres long with an average width of 58 metres.  A highlight is the fine, white sand that, along with the abundant vegetation surrounding it, makes the beach an area of great natural beauty.  The sea bed is sandy, with a gentle slope, and the waters are calm.  There are small boats moored near the coast.  From the beach you can also see the islet of Na Guardis – where there are important archaeological sites dating back to the Phoenician and Punic era – and other islets that act as a natural barrier.

From the end of Es Dolç beach, Es Carbó beach can be reached by following the path along the coastline for about 1,500 metres.  The final part of the path may cause some difficulties for people with reduced mobility.  Es Carbó beach can also be reached from the Ses Salines head, although in this case the distance to be covered is 6 kilometres.  Es Carbó is 1,400 metres long and 45 metres wide.  The beach is mainly frequented by locals and holiday makers from Colònia de Sant Jordi, so it is not usually crowded.  The sand is very fine and the dunes are populated with various salt-loving plants, pine trees, junipers and wild olives.  The sea bed at the beach is sand and seaweed.  In addition, Es Carbó runs next to the Sa Vall private estate, which can be visited on Thursdays to see its cactus garden from where we can go into the March family mansion which was built next to a 14th Century defence tower.
