Illetes (or Illetas) is a resort extending around a number of lovely smaller coves with beautiful beaches and at the South end of the resort there is an interesting double sided beach peninsula. The resort is only a short drive from Palma de Mallorca making it a great place to stay if you want to combine relaxing on the beach and exploring the capital city. The resort lies on a relatively steep slope providing a beautiful setting with amazing seaviews from most of the resort, but the height differences may make this resort less suitable for those who are motorically challenged. There is also a small part of the resort that is less elevated near to the main road to Palma and Cala Mayor. At this end of the resort there is a small commercial center with a few shops, bank, pharmacy, doctor and a tourist information center.
Neighboring resorts of Portals Nous to the South and Cala Mayor to the North are both within walking distance or a few bus stops away.
