This wild beach, dominated by the imposing tower known as Albarca or Matzoc, is located 10 kilometres away from Artà.
The defence tower, dated from the 17th century, guarded the British island of Menorca and still preserves its cannon. Originally, it was called San Fernando Tower. Es Matzoc combines fine sand and stones. It is orientated to the East, between Albarca Tower and Cala Dentola. It is seaworthy, with sand bottom and seaweed penetrating in diagonal fringes. Its shore declines towards the sea and is covered with fossil dunes in some parts. We find dense pine forests that stretch down to the beach, where two torrents merge excavating a canal as they run into the sea. The bed of the main torrent is flat, like an avenue. Along its banks palm trees and alics --Vitex Agnuscastus-- grow. We can also find some example of the endemic plant Pastinaca Lucida. We get here by foot and the shortest way is made through the area of sa Duaia, departing from Cala Estreta to take the old route of Carabiners (coast guards) that arrives to Es Matzoc.
