Platja d'es Carbo

Reviewed By rashaaburish - Egypt

A lovely raw beach with transparent water ! The walk to it is quite long and rocky but worth it especially if u plan to spend the whole day. Make sure u have your food / drinks / and something to sit on if needed. Its best to wear shoes on the way. You can also rent a boat from colonia and go with it but when we arrived it was too late.

Artestruz Mallorca

Artestruz is an ostrich farm which is open to the public. The main purpose of the farm is to present you the world of the ostriches. A professional guide will not only explain you the marvels of the biggest bird in the world, but enable you to play with them and if you dare to, feed them. You can ride an ostrich (with reservation) or meet some baby birds in the season, fun for all ages! With a reservation you can also barbecue a giant egg, some meat or other delicacies. Ostriches are extremely curious and fun – so come visit them and learn about their spectacular world! Please arrive timely for the visits at: 1 October to 30 April - 11:00, 12:30, 15:30 and 17:00.

Visited the ostrich farm today with my wife and 3 children and had a fun and interesting hour. As other reviews have stated this isn't a 'tourist' attraction but a working ostrich farm run by a family who clearly love the animals. The farms wasn't busy, just a couple of other families so we had a guided tour just for us. It was one of the sons who did the tour, and he was charming and informative and clearly enjoys what he does. We saw and fed, adult and young ostrich's and we lucky enough to be able to go in with some babies. For a personalised guide tour lasting about an hour I think the €50 entrance fee is good value. They do have a shop which you visit at the end of the tour which has some lovely things but is expensive but probably far less than buying it in a high end shop where you would normally find things of this quality. One thing that would be nice is to be able to buy a drink or ice cream at the end of the tour as it's very hot in August.

Faro Ses Salines

Reviewed By Ilovefamiliytrips - Paris

Beautiful landscapes in the area, great views from the lighthouse.
Walking ½ h on the trail from the right of the lighthouse leads you to a large and well protected beach, a magical place which is quasi desert in the morning. Little shadow, we recommend you to take water and a shade.
More busy from 1pm onwards, but we regret not to have taken a picnic to stay all day. Worth coming early in any case.
Note : Some nudists on the northern part of the beach.

Parc Nacional de Cabrera

Reviewed By amdorset2015 - Bournemouth, United Kingdom

If you like peace and quiet, gorgeous scenery and close up views of wildlife, then a speed boat trip across to Cabrera from Colonia Sant Jordi site the bill! Make sure you get at least three hours on the island, as some of the trips don't leave sufficient time to see the Castle, Beaches and harbour. And watch out for the blue-throated lizards!

Es Trenc

This large, undeveloped stretch of beach is a very popular destination - especially on the weekends.

Reviewed By Lukki777 - Southampton, United Kingdom

Our hotel reception advised us to visit Es Trenc, he said it was like paradise. After negotiating the incredibly narrow road, which was scary in our hire car as there was often an inch between you and the fence on one side and cars on the other side, we ended up at a busy car park that cost 8 Euros. When we got to the beach it was so overcrowded we struggled to find a place to lay our 3 towels. Perhaps we found it so disappointing because it had been described as paradise which we took to mean beautiful and deserted. Puerto Pollensa beach and scenery is far superior.

Botanicactus

Reviewed By ChesterKesi - Chester, United Kingdom

We had passed this cactus park many times in recent years, but to be honest, were rather put off by the 'cartoon cactus, wearing a sombrero' sign outside. However someone recommended it was worth visiting and so it was to some extent.
We visited early in the season, so the very extensive grounds were almost empty and we wandered around the various areas of cacti, regional plants and lake area without meeting many others. Whilst it was interesting to see and wonder at the many species on display, including some towering specimens, more information would be welcome, either a better guide booklet or more signage in the park. I don't know if guided tours are provided at busier times, that would certainly be a welcome addition. As in lots of these types of attractions there are a number of poultry, peacocks etc housed in tiny and inadequate enclosures, which is always disheartening to see......

Salinas d'Es Trenc

Recommended, also for families with kids. The place is fascinating, giving a chance to explore the harvesting of salt and the various types existing. Better on a cloudy day as there is no shade...Dear Alice, Thank you very much for your opinion and your recommendations. We are pleased to know you enjoyed your visit with us. All the best
