Popular places on Mallorca - far away from mass tourism

Popular places in Mallorca

Buying a property in Illetas on Mallorca is a dream that many people have. Understandable: Illetas is a charming vacation resort that has been largely spared from mass tourism. Very close to Portals Nous, the place of the rich and beautiful, lies the small and exclusive resort, which is considered an insider tip in some circles.

The 200 meter long and 50 meter wide Platja d Ílletas beach is sheltered in a semi-circular bay surrounded by hotels, vacation apartments and many pine trees. It is a beautiful fine sandy beach with crystal clear water. Services such as public showers and toilets are available for visitors.

In los meses de verano, i.e. the summer months, parasol and sun lounger hire is offered. Beach clubs have become fashionable on the island of Mallorca in recent years. One of the first was the Virtual Club or Las Terrazas (Balneario Illetas). It is located directly on the beach of Illetas and has a Spanish beach bar character thanks to the many "chiringuitos".


Mallorca places recommendations

Here you feel welcome and can relax with a glass of wine or beer to the sounds of lounge music or enjoy the gentle sound of the waves in the background.  The Balneario in Illetas is a combination of beach, restaurant, VIP terrace and chill-out lounge. It also offers a wellness center and small shopping facilities. Simple food, such as chicken skewers with vegetables, is very popular with guests. A real treat.

Even those who only want snacks (cosas para picar) are in good hands here. There is a wide selection on the starter menu.

Another tip. Parking is permitted on the roadside but parking spaces are really in short supply. The number 3 bus coming from Palma stops directly at the Balneario.

In the evening it is rather quiet in Illetas. Small disadvantage. Unfortunately, there are no stores or restaurants open in winter. Shopping facilities are available in Bendinat (unfortunately only by car or on foot) and in Cala Major, accessible via bus no. 3
