Neverthless, when the two geographers related the number of users to the area of sand available on each beach they found that S'Arenal and the Playa de Alcudia aren't the most crowded considering the amount of square metres of beach available per bather. They found that Majorca's most crowded beach is the one at Cala Agulla, in the district of Capdepera. The maximum number of people visiting the beach at Cala Agulla doesn't rise above 7'000 but the density, on public holidays as well as working days, tends to stay at 7 square metres of sand per person, whereas at S'Arenal there are 16 square metres of beach per person on public holidays and 21 on working days while on the Playa de Alcudia the figures are 13 and 21 respectively. It should be pointed out that the beaches at S'Arenal and Alcudia are in over-crowded tourist areas whereas the beach at Cala Agulla is in a natural area of special interest. In the whole of Majorca, there are other worrying cases of crowding on undeveloped beaches. Cala Mesquida, also in the Capdepera district and also in a special interest area, has 10 square metres of sand per person on public holidays and 8.72 on working days, levels which are very near to those of Cala Agulla. The worst case of over-crowding in the Balearics is Benirras, in Eivissa, with just 5 square metres of sand per person. It is supposed to be undeveloped, but it is under threat from urban projects. On the other hand, the least crowded beach in the Balearics is sa Canova D'Arta, although it has built-up areas nearby, with 44 square metres of beach per person on public holidays and 161 on working days.
