Its possible to approach the beach by dinghy at some spots but the beaches are usually very crowded, and the beach clubs are not happy if you try to land there.
Ses Salines is situated in a conservation area. It has a long, curved beach, with beautiful soft golden sand and a boundary of pine trees. It’s popular with locals, families and nudists and the crystal clear water makes it ideal for swimming. Rugged rocks stretching into the water are situated at both ends of the beach and a short path will take you to smaller bays which are more peaceful. The water here is very salty which makes it easy to stay afloat when swimming.
