The beach is always the perfect place to unwind, relax, and get some good grounding done. Except when it’s the middle of summer in Mallorca and the beaches are jam packed. It becomes a bit more hectic and a little less relaxing. I am always on the hunt for a new and less touristy place to explore, and so I was pretty excited when I came across Son Real.
In the North Coast of Mallorca there is a place called Son Real. There you will find a public finca and a nature reserve. The area itself has a rich history, and has very interesting archaeological remains. From the finca you can walk on the marked trails for approximately 30 minutes and reach some very beautiful secluded beaches.
There are kilometers of near empty beaches, with turquoise blue water and incredible coastline views. It is pure relaxation for the soul. It felt so incredibly good to go for a swim in the water, just me and the sea(and probably a few fish). There were the odd couples or families, but really minimal.
The coast is lined with trails where you can walk to estate houses that include a museum and interpretation center. This is the perfect place to take some beautiful photos, the area is naturalistic and has quite a few birds.
It was luxury being able to enjoy the empty beaches, it took me away from the tourist packed areas on the rest of the island. It pays to get off the beaten track sometimes, and there are always special places tucked away that are not your typical tourist destination. That is what adventure is all about.
The excursion rocked my little world. If you visit Mallorca and would like a different experience then I would absolutely suggest checking out the public finca of Son Real and enjoying some of the nature reserves pristine and historical areas.
