The holiday resort Illetas, also known as Illetes, is located 10 km southwest of Palma de Mallorca, between Portals Nous and Cala Major. Platja d’Illetas, which is the largest beach in Illetas, is beautifully situated inside a bay. The beach is surrounded by hotels, but the many large trees contribute to a cosy atmosphere at the beach.
The lovely sand beach is about 200 metres long and up to 50 metres wide. It is possible to rent sun lounges and sunshades at a section of the beach, and these are very popular during the high season. In the back of the beach, it is possible to buy different massage types and, naturally, there are also showers and toilets at the beach.
The beach is child-friendly- the water is very shallow and there are rarely any waves. During the height of summer, however, there is not much room to play.
It is possible to rent water bikes, but apart from that, there are no water sports activities.
There are three restaurants right behind the beach, and several of the tables have a great view over the bay. One of the restaurants is also a beach bar, serving cold drinks and ice cream.
Visitors coming by car will be able to park in the streets behind the beach. Sometimes it may be difficult to find an empty parking space, and a bit of patience will be required.
