Caló de sa Torre: this beach has the advantage of being in an area which has hardly any buildings and which is well preserved, with the remains of a watchtower built in 1626 to prevent pirate attacks being of particular note. The beach has medium-grain sand and is 35 m long and 25 m wide. To get here, head towards Mondragó from Porto Petro and the beach is signposted.

Caló des Homos Morts: the translation of the name of this beach is ´the little cove or the dead men´. The beach is 50 m long and 5 m wide, with buildings near the shore. There is a small pier used by the tourist boats which come from Porto Petro and sail along the coastline. To get here you have to walk from the beach of Caló de sa Torre towards the Club Mediterraneé complex.

Around the beach dozens of villas have been built, most of which are well integrated into the landscape. At the back of the beach there is a park for children.
