Sa Platjola

The beach of Sa Platjola is a tiny cove located inside the port of Maò next to the grandiose Fortress of La Mola. Just in front of sa Platjola you can see the walls of the Lazaretto of Maò.

Sa Platjola isn’t usually very crowded, even during summer. The beach is very quiet and shallow, and usually has quite posidonia all over the seabed, which makes the feeling when walking in thw water somewhat unpleasant (if you don’t like to step on this plants).

In front of Sa Platjola and En Miou there are dozens of boats anchored, as this small “bay” is very protected from the winds and adverse conditions of the sea.
