The quiet, idyllic beach of Canal d’en Marti (Pou des Lleo) is a pebble-and-sand strewn inlet in the shape of a horseshoe. Surrounded by low-lying rust-red cliffs and fishing huts, the interesting rock formations make for some good snorkeling around the bay. The only facilities are a tiny snack bar open until sunset and beach restaurant which offers paella and fresh fish at market prices.
Best time to go
Located off-the-beaten-path, Pou des Lleo is rarely busy, and easily enjoyed at any hour of the day.
Snorkelling! The underwater scenery is unbeatable – though the beautiful scenic countryside also makes for a gorgeous walk!
