The swimming area located around the “La Illeta dels Banyets” archaeological site is known as the Illeta dels Banyets beach, and consists of a rocky platform and a small stone cove forming an artificial link between the site and the mainland. It is a perfect place for diving.

Highlight: La Bassa de la Reina

La Bassa de la Reina (the Queen’s pool) is located behind the Club Náutico, next to the La Illeta dels Banyets archaeological site. This rocky platform is wreathed in legend; according to local tradition it was once the swimming pool of a Muslim queen, in the times of Muslim rule. However, in reality it was a Roman fish farm, which nowadays offers the delights of clean and crystalline waters.

The site also boasts a Snorkel Route, Los Baños de la Reina, suitable for everybody who likes diving and learning about our marine flora.
