The resort of Illetas has a small public beach beneath the low cliffs, which can become very busy during the summer months. Also in keeping with the exclusivity of the town, a number of the hotels here have their own private beaches which are reserved for the use of their guests.
This area of south west Majorca around Illetas is well served with golf courses, the nearest being either Bendinat
or Son Vida. An organisation based in Magaluf called "Mallorca Golf Connection",
are the official TUI Thomson golf booking agency for the island, and can organise tee-off times,
transport to and from the courses and discounted green fees.

Nightlife here tends to be quite sophisticated, and mostly hotel based. You won't find clubs with Foam Parties that open to the early hours of the morning, or Karaoke Bars either. Illetas just isn't like that.
There is excellent public transport from Illetas into nearby Palma. The bus service runs every 15 - 20 minutes, but having seen some of the very nice cars that are parked in the resort, I'm somewhat surprised that the bus is ever used.
Other than the everyday basics of life, there are surprisingly few shops in the town, with most visitors appearing
to prefer the sophisticated designer label outlets in nearby Palma. Although the city of Palma is the commercial
and cultural centre of Majorca, the depth of history, culture and nightlife there often takes visitors by surprise.
The easiest way to "see Palma in a day" is by the Number 50 sightseeing bus, which runs on average
every 20 minutes throughout the day, and takes in all the major sights of the city. In common with most City Tour
buses around Europe, you can hop on and off the bus at any point, and tickets are valid for a 24 hour period.
The total journey time for the round trip is 1 hour 20 minutes. For more information their contact details are:

If you've visited Majorca before, you may recognise that nearby Portals Nous as being the home of Marineland.
This is one of the most popular family attractions on the island, and is often included in the major tour operators
organised day trips. As a result, it can become very busy during the peak season. Once inside the park you will
find performing dolphins, sealions, and parrot shows throughout the day.
As far as we are aware these are the only captive dolphins on the island, and frequently we are asked
"can we swim with them?". Again as far as we are aware, the answer is sadly no.
During the show a number of small children are picked at random to be pulled around their pool in a small
inflatable dinghy, but outside of the show times the public are not allowed access to these beautiful creatures.
Opening hours are:
April to September: from 9am to 7pm
October to March: from 10am to 6pm
A visit to Marineland is often included in all of the major tour operators organised day trips, and it can become very busy during the peak season. For more information their contact details are:

For that extra special night out whilst on holiday, we can certainly recommend the "Come Fly With Me" show at the nearby
Globo Balear Theatre. Combining the music of Frank Sinatra with the visual spectacle of Cirque Du Soleil,
"Come Fly With Me" is set to become one of the hottest productions outside of Broadway this year.
With an international cast that features some of world’s greatest acrobats and dancers; the show is set to be an absolute
spectacle of delight, the likes of which is rarely seen off Broadway itself. Chris Mann takes on the lead role of "Ol Blue
Eyes" himself ... an unnerving experience you’d expect but not for Chris, as he’s widely regarded as one of the world’s
greatest Sinatra impersonators.
Set in 1959 in the city of New York, the show reflects the vibrant energy of a city at its best. The audience just has to
close their eyes to be instantly transported back in time to a period when Rat Pack style ruled the world with their ultimate
sophistication and undoubted class. The production values of the show are second to none and it has been painstakingly
produced with a relentless eye for period detail and heart stopping dance and acrobatic routines.
Created by Globo Balear, the same team that run the massively successful Pirates Adventure in Mallorca, "Come Fly With Me"
is sure to be an instant hit, bringing all the quality that you’d expect from a top Broadway experience to this show in
Mallorca. For more information on show times and ticket prices, contact details are:

through until the end of October, with performances most evenings. In addition to the family show, there is also
