Whether miles from civilisation or just round the corner from more famous seaside haunts, these less-visited beaches chosen by readers offer beauty and seclusion and – sometimes – warm seas
The 6km-long main beach in Alcudia is one of the best and busiest in Spain. Yet at the end of the headland, several kilometres away is one of the best and loneliest in Spain, Es Coll Baix. It’s a big expanse of Robinson Crusoe-style beach below cliffs of scented pinewoods. The water is blue and when the sea is calm the snorkelling is great. The half-hour walk to it down a “path” involves some guesswork and climbing over boulders.
