Picnics with sea views
If a post-picnic swim is your kind of thing or you are just fond of a sea view, then there are a few picnic areas catering for that waterside dining experience. You can even book a watersport experience to build up your appetite.
S’Illot Beach, located close to Alcúdia, offers a splendid natural setting with epic sea views over the bay of Pollença and Formentor. There’s a delightful little picnic area by the pebbled beach, which has an adequate amount of picnic tables, chairs and a couple of grills. Snorkelling is big here thanks to the interesting seabed and turquoise waters, so be sure to bring your snorkelling mask.
Mondragó Natural Park is located in the east of Mallorca and is made up of open gorges, streams, beaches and small dune systems. Its serene beaches appeal to the masses but, for nature lovers, the vegetation is the main draw here. Keen birdwatchers will be pleased to know the area hosts an array of different bird species including falcons, fisherman eagles, common partridges, turtledoves and cuckoos. Wild olive trees, Mediterranean pines, rockroses and orchids all reside here too. Just behind the beach Sa Font de n’Alís, you will spot a dedicated picnic area with tables and benches next to a children’s play area. So you can retreat from the turmoil of dining on the sand to a more comfortable setting if you so wish.
