At the south east coast of the mainland Spain in the Mediterranean Sea is Mallorca, this is the largest of the Balearic Islands. Mallorca is "a little paradise where visitors can find all they need to be happy". There are mountains to walk on, natural parks to wander in, beaches and waters to swim and sail in, bike routes, theatres, museums, discotheques, golf courses, glamour, traditions and culture.
The beaches and coves of Mallorca are known all over the world for their beauty, their safety, their fine sand, their clear water, their facilities and, for their quality.
The Tramuntana coast, which faces north, northwest and west, is the sheerest because the mountain chain drops down to the sea from a height of about a thousand metres. This is an extremely beautiful Mediterranean-type coast with its own peculiar vegetation that almost reaches the sea.
In the center of Mallorca in el Pla (the plain area of the island), is ideal to know the cultural life, and to buy the typical products of the region at the weekly markets is a very interesting experience. This area is also good for cycling tours.
Playa de Illetas
The coast of Illetes is one of the nearest to Palma town and very well for public transport, this is dotted with beautiful coves and off the coast there are three islands, Sa Torre, S'Estenedor o des Pas and Sa Caleta, which together form the “Ses Illetes” group. Facing the bay is a military fort dating from the end of the 19th century. Like the defence tower of Ses Illetes, it was first used as a signal tower and was part of the observation posts that stretched along the Calviá coast. Until the end of the 20th century, one section of the coast was closed off as it belonged to the Army, but it has been returned to its previous owners and is now open to the public. The beaches in this area have all possible services: deckchairs, sun umbrellas, bars, nearby hotels, buses, etc.
