Just after crossing Sant Jordi on the way to the airport, there is a horse racing venue, where a popular Saturday market is held. Here you can buy second-hand items, handicrafts, and clothing. The village has several restaurants and shops, too.

Since the area is very closely located to the Ses Salines Natural Park, there are many unspoilt beaches around. Among them, Ses Salines and Es Cavallet are the two most popular and emblematic beaches of the island, highly secured for its big ecological value.

Es Cavallet beach is amongst the most well-known pioneering nudist beaches in Spain. This extended beach is surrounded by abundant plants and dunes that give it a look with a wild touch. Along its shore, you will find superb places to sunbathe and swim in its crystal clear blue waters.

A fairly exceptional beach of Ses Salines is very popular and especially attractive to the affluent and upscale crowd. However, here you can see celebrities, party goers, families, hippies, and everyone else. Its crystal clear turquoise waters and fashionable restaurants give it a very nice atmosphere.

Named after the salt planes, which over the years supplied the main export industry to the island, Salinas has something for everyone. Whether you want to relax and enjoy the sun, or sip cocktails on your sun bed listening to the coolest soundtrack from the seasonal artists, swim in the clear sea or learn diving at the famous dive school, Ses Salinas has it all available for you.

Even though cliffs, dunes, and salt fields that run along the rocky coastline give it a feeling of exclusivity and isolation, the beach nevertheless pulses with life, and may be crowded by early afternoon in the summertime.

The beach is adjacent to the Natural Park of Ses Salines, a protected area due to its strong ecological importance. The necessity to protect over 200 species of birds and other flora and fauna made UNESCO declaring it a world heritage site. For bird enthusiasts, it is especially interesting to visit the Park in the months of July to October and also February to May when flamingos and herons are at their peak.

The salt fields have been in use for more than 2,000 years and developed ”white gold” of Ibiza. It had been the island’s main export industry until tourism was established here. Because the water disappears over the hot summertime, a crust of salt is left on the bottom of the lakes making an amazing view every night as it sparkles when the sun sets.

The residential area is also very nearly located to the action of the trendy resort of Playa d’en Bossa (only 10-15 minutes on foot). Its longest stretch of sand on the island has gone through a remarkable change in recent years leading to a transformation similar to Miami’s ultra cool South Beach. The golden sand and clear blue water are ideal for unwinding and getting a sun tan, but there is also much more to accomplish.
