At this part of the island, barely two kilometres separate the Tramuntana coast from the Migjorn coast the other side. This route leaves from approximately kilometre 11 of the main road and Es Carnatge with the Es Arenals beach. Es Carnatge is a natural, quiet area, close to Es Calo de Sant Agustí, a little fishing village. Your stroll will take you along a tarmac road that runs by isolated homes, ofttimes with kitchen gardens, flocks of animals, shored up fig trees and dry stone walls. Once you pass the wooded area near the end of the road, you will reach the Es Arenals beach, one of the most popular with tourists because it is so beautiful and so easy to reach. Two colours sum up the character of this beach: the turquoise blue of its crystal clear water and the white sand that gives it its name. The shallow waters make it ideal for a family day out on the beach. There are numerous traditional family-run hotels in this area.

The Es Pujols and the Es Arenals beaches both have access for people with reduced mobility. There are access ramps, shady platforms, handrails, amphibious chairs and lifeguards. Es Arenals also has adapted lavatory facilities and disabled parking spaces.
