Illetas Beach, Palma de Mallorca

Sheltered bay with two beach clubs in the bay of Palma

Featured in:

Illetas is a small upmarket resort nine kilometres to the south-west of Palma. The beach os more sheltered than the huge stretch of sand that makes up the beach in front of the cathedral, making this one of the nicest beaches in the Bay of Palma.

The beach is not that big, with a length of around 100 metres and around 50 metres deep. The sand is soft and golden, and the sea crystal clear and welcoming.

Sun beds and parasols are available to hire, and there are toilets, ramps for the disabled and lifeguards on duty. It's a popular beach with yachts as it boasts a sheltered bay. There are also lots of watersports on offer as well as restaurants and bars.

Setting & Location

The beach sits at the end of an U-shaped sea inlet and is surrounded by steep cliffs that are now covered in hotels and apartment blocks.

Water Safety & Clarity

The crystal clear sea is always inviting and perfect for a cooling dip. Lifeguards are on duty here during the peak season and the busy summer months.

Beach Quality

Although the beach here is relatively small the sand is glorious, golden and soft.

Bars & Beachclubs

Illetas is actually quite a swanky beach, reflected by the fact that there are two decent beach clubs here. Las Terrazas overlooks the beach and is ideal for lunch or dinner while Purobeach is situated on a rocky platform at the end of the beach and is all about chilling in the sun on a lounger.
