The Torre de ses Animes, a watchtower, is a popular tourist attraction which was constructed by the natives to protect themselves from the pirates. This region was once renowned worldwide for its vineyards and its Malvasia grape variety, which many vintners are now trying to re-establish.

Cala Banyalbufar, is another bay where freshwater flows from its rocks which make up for a delightful shower. Other trendy beaches which are ideal spots for swimming and sun-bathing are Es Corral Fals and Son Bunyola.
