If you want to swim in crystal clear water then this is the beach to go to on the Palma side of Majorca. The number 3 bus takes you there for €1.5 and is regular. If you have a great body and have recently invested...More

This is the better known of the two beaches in Illetas so it has a good restaurant or two, a spa, a few beach shops and ample parking. But the other beach in Illetas is better. My advice is to go instead to the smaller...More

Nice small and intimate beach where you avoid the big crowds which you have on the beaches in Palmanova and Ses Palmeres.

I was told this was a must-see beach close to Palma and easy to reach by local bus and so it is, but the beach next door, the Cala Comtesa, is much nicer and smaller and l wonder if people are confusing the two. You...More

Beautiful beach with clear blue sea. A little gem of a beach set in a nice cove. Does get busy in the summer but you can still have a peaceful time here.

The beach and lagoon are really beautiful! And the beach goes on for several kilometers, you just need to go around the next corner and next. The restaurants are rather expensive and there are no regular chiringitos.There are very little public services either, meaning toilets...More

Very nice place to go and relax, we paid for our sun beds in a roped off area which was well worth 27 euro, as it does get very busy and you are well looked after with drinks and they book your table for lunch...More

A lovely family beach. Spent several days here. Restaurants are great around the bay, highly recommended.

The beach is beautiful, the water is clean and not cold and suitable for swimming. It's no big, so in the summer it uses to be crowded and you can go there by bus.

Perhaps if it wasn't that crowded it would have been a beautiful beach near Palmanova. But when we got there (it is an easy drive from Palmanova) we couldn't find a place to sit. After a while we found a couple of sunbeds at a...More

I love this beach because of the sandy shores and the clear water, if you ignore the layer of lotion floating on the surface. Unfortunately I am not the only one who loves it, so it gets very crowded around lunch time. The beach clubs...More

Hi, there are a few small shops - spar, souvenir, local clothes, ice cream - typical tourist shops. The area is a little hilly. There are a couple of beaches in that area that you can walk to and a few very small... More
