Mañana mañana: experience a more traditional way of life on a holiday in S’Illot
Unlike other resorts along the east coast of Majorca, S’Illot is not a purpose built holiday resort. Originally a fishing village, the area retains its more relaxed way of life in the face of the tourist boom across Majorca, so a holiday in S’Illot is ideal for couples or families looking for a slice of the sun combined with a taste of the local culture.
S’Illot holidays: Lose yourself
As with other areas of Majorca, S’Illot boasts a stunning beach. Watch the crystal clear waves caress the white sands of Playa S'Illot and feel the stress of everyday life melt away. With gently sloping beaches and shallow waters, you won’t even have to worry about the children.
For something a little more active, Golf Paradise is a mini-golf complex that everyone can enjoy, and with a choice of three different courses you can go back again and again. Neighbouring resort Sa Coma is only a gentle stroll away, offering a larger and more bustling beach, and the Auto Safari Zoo is popular across the island for its array of exotic animals. If you drive through the safari yourself, be careful of the monkeys - they’re very fond of car bonnets!
If monkeys aren’t for you, retreat into nature on your holiday in S’Illot and walk, cycle or ride around the Punta de N'Amer headland, a protected nature reserve offering a vibrant array of flora and fauna. Lose yourself amongst the wild flowers, before taking the rural track up to the watchtower of Castell de n'Amer to experience spectacular views across the island.
Hiring a car on your holiday in S’Illot is an excellent way to allow you to explore in your own time, although there are regular bus services throughout the season. The east coast has a number of attractions well worth a visit, in particular the famous Caves of Drach or, off the beaten track slightly, the mesmerizing underground lake at the Caves of Hams.
Your holiday in S’Illot wouldn’t be complete without sampling the mouth watering seafood. As you’d expect from a fishing village, S’Illot boasts freshly caught and expertly prepared fish that you’ll struggle to beat elsewhere. If you aren’t a fish fan, there are various restaurants along the promenade or a wider selection is available in nearby Sa Coma.
When it comes to nightlife, S’Illot has a relaxed atmosphere that’s inkeeping with the general vibe of the town. Espace disco in Sa Coma is popular, but those seeking a more vibrant party scene can head to the resort of Cala Millor’s Palace Q, a buzzing all-night disco only a five minute drive away.
