Although it’s a small village that has grown into a well-rounded tourist centre, S’Argamassa still remains compact and the majority of the hotels are modern. The swanky new ME hotel on the front of the coastline has a fab rooftop terrace for cocktails as well as daily yoga classes.
Right next door is exclusive beach club Nikki Beach where you can get caught up in glamourous parties, such as their yacht party or Sunday champagne party. As well as being an ultra-stylish place to hang out, listen to music and people watch, it also has a high end restaurant and cool boutique.
S’Argamassa’s main street has some good shops, restaurants and cafes and if you’re into history you might want to take a look at the ancient fishing sight by the coast. There is a stone wall crowned with a 425 metre canal near the cove that archaeologists think was an industrial facility for brining fish in the 1st and 2nd century.
