Exclusive coastal retreat
Holidays to Illetas are ideal for couples and families in search of a luxury break in Majorca. Located on the island’s south west coast, it offers pristine beaches surrounded by luscious forests. Explorers will love the rugged terrain surrounding the village, while those wanting to simply spend their days on the beach will find plenty of options. Take a boat trip and explore the surrounding coastline, stopping off in a pretty bay for a swim, picnic, and snorkel.
In the town of Illetas itself you’ll find a street of bars and restaurants, as well as a few shops selling boutique gifts and souvenirs. Visitors wanting to explore Majorca’s more cosmopolitan side will find the island’s capital, Palma, just a 20-minute drive away. Here, you can explore the vibrant marina and its many restaurants and bars, or spend the day exploring the older areas of the town which are filled with historic and cultural sights. For some retail therapy, Palma is also home to plenty of shops.

Majorca starts warming up for summer around April, when the mercury climbs into the 20s and doesn’t stop until around July, which can top 30°C. You’re looking at around 11 hours of sunshine a day in midsummer, with bath-like sea temperatures. Things won’t cool off until October, which still hovers in the low to mid 20s.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.
Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
