This sandy area is very long but narrow and it is formed by very fine-grained sand of a very clear and white colour. There is a very thick and green pine and holm oak wood on the headland of Formentor that surround this beach. The branches of the trees nearly touch the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean Sea on this wonderful coastal area.
