Close to the S’Arenal beach are the prehistoric burial grounds of Son Real and L´illot des Porros that are situated within the Son Real Nature Reserve. Within the reserve, the presence of Mediterranean tortoises, red pheasants, hares, rabbits, weasels, dormice and Algerian hedgehogs, all contribute to making this area of great environment significance.
The tombs at Son Real, which are known locally as the "Cemetery of the Phoenicians", are either square, rectangular, round or horseshoe shaped, and contain the bodies of more than 300 people buried there from the Iron Age through to Roman times.
The nearby L’illot des Porros burial ground is a small island of around 3,500 square metres, which is situated around 100 metres off the coast in front of Son Real, and contains bodies from the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Centuries.
If however, the thought of prehistoric burial grounds are slightly off putting, then every year, during the last week in July and the first week in August there is a 10-day long Fiesta in Son Serra de Marina which involves a lot of music, outdoor cinemas, sporting contests, T-shirt painting, and, of course, lots of eating and drinking, which is common to all Mallorquin fiestas!
If you are staying in the town there is also a public bus service with four buses a day running to Palma (three on Saturday) via C’an Picafort, Santa Margalida and Inca. There is also a direct bus to C’an Picafort which runs three times a day.
Possibly the largest commercial development along this part of the north coast of Mallorca is the Club Nautico Serranova. This moderate capacity marina has
moorings for 128 boats with a maximum length of up to 9.00 m and a maximum draught of 3.00 m. Contact details for more information are:
