Fornells is a fishing village with a natural harbour (5 km in length) in its sheltered bay.

Its palm-lined pedestrianised walkway invites many visitors to enjoy a stroll along the water‘s edge with lots of seafood restaurants, famed for its typical caldereta de llangosta, a lobster stew, or serving other types of seafood landed just this morning!

There is no beach in Fornells, yet for the experienced swimmer the bay offers crystal-clear deep warters ideal for snorkelling.
