Holidaymakers can enjoy a beautiful view of the island and its lighthouse from the shore, or even swim there across the 1.5-metre-deep lagoon. The beach consists of various materials, but gravel makes up the majority of its surface

S’ILLOT BEACH

Between Formentor and Bahía de Pollensa we find this small peblle beach with crystalline waters that has remained intact and retreat from busy tourist beaches

The main attraction of Playa S’Illot is that it remains virtually untouched, with no buildings or facilities along its coast; and also, from its coast can be seen a beautiful islet that gives its name to the beach and protects it from the winds of the Tramontana. Especially recommended for those seeking tranquility and lovers of remote and wild beaches, away from the big crowded ones. This area has a rocky seabed and abundant seagrass meadows. This causes that its waters be especially crystalline, making it a perfect beach for scuba diving or snorkeling as well for canoeing.

The beach consists of round stones and rocks, so it is advisable to wear sandals or beach shoes suitable for not suffering too much when entering the water, as may appear sea urchins.
Near the beach, there is an area of picnic tables, so if you go well prepared, you can spend a fantastic day at the beach there.

Getting to S’Illot beach

If you go from Alcudia, take the Camí del Mal Pas road for about 2 kilometers until reaching Puerto Deportivo del Cocodrilo or Marina de Bonaire. Once there, turn right and continue for about 2 km more to the Camí Vell de la Victoria until getting to the parking area that we find on both sides of the road.

COLONIA SANT PERE

The promenade of the Colonia de Sant Pere village leads along the eponymous beach. There are also cafes, shops, and restaurants there. The beach here is protected by breakwaters to stop the waves from eroding the coast, and sand is often heaped up here as well. Depending on when this last happened, you can find a sandy or a gravel beach here. There is also a small marina nearby.

 

SON SERRA

This beautiful long beach spreads between the towns of Colonia de Sant Pere and Son Serra de Marina. Behind the beach lie dune fields, covered in grass.

A long jetty leads out into the sea, and visitors can enjoy an exceptional panorama of the bay and mountains from there.

There are two ways to get to the cool water here: either over the concrete ramp from which boats are launched, or across the pebble beach itself.

This is also the starting point of a beautiful hiking trail to Banyalbufar.

 

CALA BANYALBUFAR

The wonderful, secluded beach Cala Font Celada can only be reached by a ramble about four kilometres long. On the way, there is a fantastic panorama of the sea and the barren, hilly countryside. As there are hardly any shadows, one should carry enough drinks and wear a hat. When bathing, one notices the somewhat cooler water, because of the fresh water sources near the seaside. The bay is the mouth of the Torrent of Castellot, which, however, occurs only after quite heavy rainfall. Otherwise, there is a small brackish pond at the end of the beach.

The gentle slope of the beach into the sea makes the beach ideal for families as well.

 

CALA BONA

The small yet pretty beach N’Aladern is lined by pines and a few smaller private houses. If the neighbouring beach of Font de sa Cala is too crowded, this is the ideal spot to come for a quiet break, just one kilometre away.
