This is the southernmost tip of Mallorca, and the closest place to the African continent on the island. A completely virgin area, a flat landscape populated with savin junipers and brush. The coast is low here, and the only construction you will see is the Ses Salines lighthouse, erected between 1850 and 1870. Nowadays it is a coastal research station run by the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (IMEDEA). Enjoy the easy, pleasant sailing along this stretch of solitary coast. At a distance of about 4.5 miles to the south you can see the Cabrera archipelago, 18 islands and islets that are protected as a National Park.

A family legacy, an inexcusable visit if you are in Ses Salines. Simple, unpretentious premises, where quality and friendly service prevail, the latter provided by the owners, Manolo and Margarita and their children, Apolonia and Juan. Their Mediterranean cuisine includes good fish and fresh seafood, with the highlight of the Calamar Potera squid, served with virgin olive oil from Sóller and cocó salt, the “Notary’s rice” or lobster casserole.
Hotel and restaurant (****) situated in Ses Salines, in a house originating from the 13th century. Signature cuisine based on the Mediterranean diet, with avantgarde twists.
