The area behind Sa Mesquida beach is very humid and flooded in winter. Therefore, there is a wooden walkway that will allow you to cross.

From there, you can reach a beautiful, calmer cove, known as Rinconada de Sa Mesquida. It has no sand, as it is a Macar.

Small flat stones make the cove of a greyish colour. It is a recommended place for snorkelling!
