Arenal de s'Olla de Son Saura is also known as Arenal de Son Saura, Arenal de s'Olla or Platja de Son Parc, and is close to the urbanization of the same name Son Parc, between Cap Gros and na Tortuga, 14 km from Mercadal and 15 from Alaior.
The beach is quite large and sandy, with an impressive dune system dotted with vegetation and trees and low rocks by the water. It faces north and has light winds and moderate waves with surf. The fine sand is pale and the water crystal-clear and shallow. There are apartment blocks overlooking the beach and a restaurant on the far side.
It is not advisable to moor boats here as it is not very sheltered. There are some rocks in the entrance of the bay on both sides. It is better to moor in the nearby Cala Pudent, which is suitable for small craft.
Access by road is easy and well marked; the final section is not surfaced and drivers should be careful not to park on the dunes. Parking is free and in the summer there is a regular bus-service from Mahón and Fornells. Popular with both locals and tourists.
Please obey all safety instructions and keep an eye on the flags.

Enjoy, but it is important that you use your common sense at all times and do not take unnecessary risks.
Domestic pets and animals are not allowed on the beach.
