Illetas (also known as Illetes and Ses Illetes) means ”Islets” and refers to three tiny islands of Sa Torre, Sa Caleta and Des Pas. They seem to float on the sea just off the coast, in waters so clear, that they reflect the surrounding pine trees.

In addition, the historic center of Palma is only 5 minutes away and the airport can be reached in a 15-minute drive.

All the beach areas are well-maintained and equipped, with beach clubs and lounge areas to enjoy a cocktail or a meal. For example, a beach club and a nightclub of 9,000 sq.m. is a large Balneario Illetas (also known as La Terrazas), as well as built in a cave Virtual Beach club.
