The village offers restaurants, some small shops and excursions such as boat rides, diving, SUP and kayaking. The stunning nature reserve of Cala Mondrago, with its turquoise bays and sandy beaches is only a few minutes away by bike.

There are 3 bikes, a kayak and a mini-trampoline, all of which you are free to use.
