Situated in the extreme south of Mallorca, and surrounded by the Marine Reserve of Migjorn, are some of the most spectacular virgin beaches of Mallorca. Although the most famous one is Es Trenc, other beaches deserve special attention, such as Es Carbů and Es Caragol, which are less visited as they are only accessible on foot or from the sea.
To reach the beaches Es Carbů and Es Caragol, you can use the path that borders the coast and connects the ColÚnia de Sant Jordi with Cap de ses Salines. As an excursion, it is recommended to go by car or other transport as far as the Lighthouse at Cap de Ses Salines and continue on foot to the ColÚnia de Sant Jordi. From here, if you prefer not to walk back again, you can take a taxi to pick up your car at the starting point.
And so, once facing the imposing Lighthouse of Cap de Ses Salines, that at present houses a coastal research station of the IMEDEA, you take the narrow path found on the right that goes northwest towards the ColÚnia de Sant Jordi, along the coast. The whole trip from Cap de Ses Salines to the ColÚnia de Sant Jordi is some 8 km and can be covered in about 2 hours plus any time for a rest.
Along the path, the most interesting points are the beaches of Es Caragol, Cala en Tugores, Es Carbů, Es DofŪ, Can Curt and Es Dols; plus the islets of En Curt, Na Pelada, Na Moltona and Na Guardis. The route is very pleasant, alternating low, rocky coastal areas with sandy land, and some pine groves to shade from the sun. The vegetation of this habitat, the crystal clear water and the panorama of the Cabrera Archipelago on the horizon make up incomparable scenery.
