The Es Trucadors area, to the north of the island, is a long ‘tongue’ of land that stretches from south to north. The Levante beach is on the eastern side, while Ses Illetes and Es Cavall d’en Borràs are on the western side. This four-and-a bit kilometre walk gives you an opportunity to see them all.

The Levante beach boasts powdery white sand with small rocks scattered here and there. In summertime, the size of the waves depends on the strength of the east wind, which tends to blow at this time of year. Illetes, however, is sheltered by sand dunes and is usually a glittering, shiny mirror dotted with the small islets that give it its name.

This area is part of the Ses Salines natural park and is subject to a high degree of environmental protection. With the exception of a few beach bars there are no buildings of any kind. This beach is virtually untouched. As you travel north, both the Llevant and the Illetes beaches are just a few metres from each other, in fact you can spread out your towel between the two and look at both of them at the same time. Just 50 metres of water away is another island, semi-deserted and as glittering as Illetes. This is S’Espalmador.
