In relation to those neighbourhoods and beaches that make up the southern coast of Sant Lluís, are of special interest Binibeca beach, the fishing village of Binibeca Vell, Punta Prima and Cala Torret.

Similarly, Alcaufar and S’Algar, located on the east coast of Sant Lluís, are also highly recommended.
