We took the land train on a Sunday afternoon. We'd timed it so we were going when the weather wasn't so good; cool, breezy and some drizzle. It turned out to be a good choice as our little one (almost 2) loved the train. First stop was an old farmhouse at Can Andreu, which is very pretty. A little discussion about the traditional olive oil making process and a little more about weaving shoes. There were loads of mosquitoes and my wife and I left with loads of bites. We had the chance to sample some of the local liquor and then were back on the train. Next stop was an old church at San Carlos, which frustratingly was closed so we couldn't go in. Had to settle for some of the pictures taken by other travellers on this site. We did have a chance to wander to pick up and ice cream and had 5 minutes for the little one to play at the playground before departing. The next stop at Santa Eulalia felt very rushed. We just about had time to walk 5 mins along the promenade and order a glass of sangria, however there was no time to drink it before getting back on the train. One final stop at the Niu Blau beach and a bit of discussion about the special nature of Posidonia plant and its importance to the sand dune ecosystem. Overall this felt a little rushed and a little overpriced at €16 per adult. Make sure you take some mosquito repellant for the farm!

My husband and and I enjoyed this train journey around several beaches which we probably wouldn't have visited ourselves. It takes around three hours and is very informative. Recommend it.

My daughter and I went on this trip to saint Joan and then onto Portinatx beach. The beach there is stunning. We didn't think much of the church at St Joan but we are not really into churches. We were supposed to go to Cala Xarraca but for some reason we didn't stop there. We struggled to hear the commentary as we were in the second carriage and with the road news it is very difficult to hear. The music on the trip was quite something! Lots of 1970s music. Probably not worth the €16 we paid.

We boarded at cala llonga for the 3 beach trip. The guy that owns the train is lovely and knowledgeable about the area. 4 people per row of seats which leaves lots of room. Our son loves trains so this was a great activity for us and a slight reprieve from sunning ourselves. Take water and sun cream as it still get quite hot onboard and if you're sat by the sides the sun will still blaze down on you. The trip was approx 3.5hrs and it wasnt long enough. Most of the time is spent on the train. 1st stop a fisherman's bay/beach. 10mins here, you wouldn't want longer as theres nothing there. The beach bar here was closed so no toilets to use. 2nd stop was to see the dark sand, down some fairly steep steps to a small bay which was packed with people. 15mins which wasn't really long enough to get down to the beach, take in the view and get back up with 2 kids in tow. My mum, whose 60 didnt bother walking down as she knew she would have had trouble getting back up in a timely manner due to having bad knees. We were the only people from the train to venture down, the other passengers sought out toilets, ice cream and/or drink. Next stop was es figueral. We had 40mins here. It definitely wasnt long enough. Lovely beach. We just had enough time to walk the length of it, 1 way and back and then realised that time was up. We had to run up the hill for the train who luckily had waited the 5mins we were late back. The train then took another way back to cala llonga which was great to see. Theres an audio tape that plays at various stages of the journey. Part of it was inaudible and we had to ask for the volume to be turned up. It was a good way to spend a few hours but it could be improved by allowing you longer at the last beach. We wouldn't do it again but would recommend to other families who wanted a change of scene for a few hours

We took the beach tour for the morning. It cost €16 per adult and our daughter (1 year old) went free. The train left at 10.30 and we were back by 1.30. You get roughly around 25 minutes at each beach. Just time for a quick dip in the sea or a drink. Well organised and informative guide.
