Son Serra, Son Bauló, Aucanada, Es Bartolins… are some of the unspoilt beaches near Can Pere Rei that give their name to our apartments.
We wanted to pay tribute to the Parc Natural de Llevant and also to the unspoilt coastline of the municipality of Santa Margalida.
Can Pere Rei is located in a unique and strategic enclave. On the one hand it borders the municipality of Artà, where the Parc Natural de Llevant is located, and on the other with Santa Margalida, specifically with the coastal town of Son Serra de Marina.
Son Serra de Marina

In Son Serra de Marina there are no large hotels, nor are there any large infrastructures. On the contrary, in Son Serra de Marina time seems to stand still. The sunsets have a special light.
It is a favourite spot for lovers of surfing, waves and other water sports such as kite surfing.
