Holidays to Illetas
Illetas was one of the first resorts on Majorca to be developed for tourism, situated on the old coast road just outside the capital city of Palma and a mere 6 miles from the airport, Illetas is an almost forgotten gem of a holiday destination. Although quite expensive with a scattering of luxury 4 and 5 star hotels such as the Bon Sol, Melia De Mar and the Riu Bonanza Playa, the resort provides an ideal location to combine a quality beach hotel by day and the delights of Palma by night.
The resort will appeal to professional couples and their families; the main beach is very pleasant with a beach bar/restaurant and ample sunshades. The resort however is quite hilly and would not suit someone with mobility problems. Just along the main coast road from Illetas and in keeping with this upmarket part of the island you will find the resorts of Bendinat and Portals Nous with its Puerto Portals marina. This exclusive marina is home to a wide selection of superb yachts, chic boutiques, cafes and restaurants.
Illetas itself has several shops, bars, cafes and restaurants but with an excellent taxi service and frequent cheap public transport the city of Palma's attractions are conveniently close by. Within minutes you can be exploring department stores, boutiques, medieval cobbled streets, traditional tapas bars, leafy plazas, museums or the Gothic Cathedral. For those that enjoy nightlife the sophisticated nightclubs of Palma and many of its bars and cafes stay open until the small hours and beyond.
With the convenience and frequency of low cost and charter flights combined with the easy access to the airport and Palma city the resort makes an ideal choice for a short break.
