I have been many times to Son Serra de Marina and it is one of the virgin beaches that still remains, with a small village and some restaurants and bars and a small walk, a very quiet and peaceful place, a surfer’s paradise that one side ends at the beach of Sa Canova de Arta, a protected and unspoiled place as well.
This sandy area is coarse-grained and greyish. The sand of the coastline is covered by posidonia rests. On the right side there is the mouth of Torrent de na Borges, natural border between the municipalities of Artà and Santa Margalida, and also between this beach and the nearby sa Canova. On the left side you will see the port facilities of Club Nàutic Serra Nova.
The extensive coast is sandy and rocky, quite low and not very deep, so that the navigators are recommended not to approach too much to avoid running aground. The accessibility by car is easy following the signs until a free parking area at a few metres from this quiet beach.
Son Serra de Marina is situated at 11 kilometres from Can Picafort. The beach, the marina and a village have the same name. In the residential area there is a round defence tower with a beautiful panoramic view over Cap de Farrutx (Artà) until Alcudia.
