The unspoilt Es Comu beach is situated between Ca'n Picafort and Playa de Muro, it's backed by sandy dunes and has no facilities making it a much quieter option than the stretch along the resort front. This beach is 1.5 km in length and 10-metres wide, the nearest restaurant can be found at either of the neighbouring resorts.
