Playa de S’Illot, at five kilometres from Alcudia, separates the bays of Alcúdia and Pollença, and takes its name from the islet there (“illot” in Catalonian means islet).

This beautiful cove in the shape of two half-moons has a gravel slope and a pine forest at the back.

This coast is not suitable for launching boats because it is very low, although access by highway is easy following the road signs.

S’Illot, at 600 metres long and 15 metres wide, has a moderate swell and a N to NE breeze. Its waters are clear and with a rocky base.

This beach has become one of the most frequented beaches by family and tourists on this part of the coast because of its proximity to the highway. Our Majorca hotel, the JS Sol de Alcudia, is the nearest hotel to this idyllic beach.

The Beach also has a chiringuito (beach bar) on a small cliff with pretty and relaxing views over the bay of Pollensa. It is mainly characterised by the islet that the bay overlooks and those who enjoy rowing often come here.

The geographical coordinates are as follows: 39º 52’ 30” N – 3º 09’ 45” E
