Mallorca Top 10 Beaches Sant Elm

Sant Elm

Sant Elm is a small resort on the west coast of Mallorca, that faces the small island Es Pantaleu and the larger island Sa Dragonera.
The drive to Sant Elm is through twisting roads in a scenic landscape. On the way to Sant Elm the charming little village of Andratx is worth a stop.
The beach The 130 metres long beach in Sant Elm has two names: Platja de Sant Elm or Es Geperut.
The beach consists of two beaches. The larger one has fine grained sand, many sun loungers and a playground. Obviously the most crowded of the two beaches.
The smaller beach has part sand and part gravel. There is a few sun loungers but this part of the beach is the quiet one.
The water is very clear.
Behind the larger beach you will find two parking areas. Parking in the closest one cost 3 Euro while parking is for free at the other one (200 metres from the beach).  
Child-friendliness The sea is fairly shallow and there is a playground behind the large beach. All in all a child-friendly beach.
Water sports Pedal boats for hire. The good swimmers can snorkel by the small island Es Pantaleu.
Beach restaurants There is a restaurant in a hotel next to the beach. Additionally, you will find several restaurants/cafés in the pedestrian street very close to the beach.
The resort Sant Elm The former fishing village Sant Elm has only about 500 inhabitants.
