This small bay gets its name from the seasonal stream which originates on the slopes of Sa Talaiassa,[4] the highest point on the islands, and runs down to its terminus in this small cove.

The beach is made up of fine gold sand and slopes very gently into the shallow water at the head of this cove. The water at the mouth of the inlet is deeper[4] and gives a good opportunity for diving and snorkelling.
