Just off the road from Megalochori to Limenaria, Dragonera Beach is a pebble bay framed by pine-capped rocks on the west coast.
The beach has a single row of sun loungers and sun shades, rented out by a little kiosk on the shore.
This is the only sign of tourism at Dragonera: Behind are uninhabited coniferous hills, and if you’re feeling adventurous you could wade around the rocks to the north to find a quiet place to bathe.
The sea at Dragonera is a captivating turquoise colour, with rippling surf that should be safe for all-comers.
