The mouth of the Rec del Molí stream separates this beach from that of la Fonollera (in the municipal area of Torroella de Montgrí) creating a series of pools with great ecological interest, known as “Les Basses d’En Coll”, and which are included in the Natural Park of Montgrí, les Medes i el Baix Ter. It is limited to the north by the Rec del Molí which acts marks the beginning of la Fonollera beach (Torroella de Montgrí) and to the south it runs into the Platja Gran of Pals.
