The Illa Roja beach is named after a red island located on the right side and is joined to it by a strip of sand. This quiet cove is surrounded by rocks and pines, and from the path is one of the most beautiful panoramic views of this part of the coastline.
It presents an unspoilt aspect, flanked by tall rock walls covered with vegetation. Its beauty and the transparency of its waters attract many swimmers, but there is usually no overcrowding.
It is 180 metres long with an average width of about twenty metres and is formed of coarse-grain golden sand. The entry slope into the sea is fairly pronounced. There are no services, except for a small beach bar that is usually open in summer. The practice of nudity is permitted here.
Behind the beach, a coastal footpath leads to the south, going all the way to the beach of Sa Riera. To the north, after the Espinuda tip, you arrive at the Racó beach and the large sandy bay of Pals. This path is the only way to access the beach.
