Es Cavallet is located at Ses Salines Natural Park, surrounded by salt ponds and dune systems. Its total length is over one kilometre and has a sand and rock seabed as well as three restaurants: Chiringay, El Chiringuito and S’Escollera. As it is located in front of the largest Posidonia oceanica meadow in the world you will often spot stalk remnants of this water plant which some people mistaken for an algae, and this makes it unappealing to many travellers.
