Illetes Beach



Illetes Beach is the most popular beach and has fine golden sand and is smallish being 200 X 50 metres. It has a car park and the local information office say it has wheelchair access but my access was via steps. There is quite a descent from the road on the top of the backing cliffs.


Sun loungers and parasols are available along with pedalos.

There is a life guard post, bars and restaurants and with it's calm water the beach is very suitable for families with small children.

The smallest of the 3 beaches, 35 X 10 metres. It is a beautiful beach with sand and flat rock areas, A beach bar serving snacks. The beach is separated from the road by 10 - 20 metres of pine forest.


The islet Illa de sa Caleta lying 200 metres out and the narrow rocky low headland give the beach protection from waves.


On the other side of this headland with a square tower on it, is a second islet Illa de sa Torre. These 2 islets give the name to Illetes


To the rear of the beach lies the abandoned military fort that dates from the end of the 19th century.
