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.
