Welcome to S'Illot


The Spanish holiday destination of S'Illot is on the east coat of Mallorca and combines the larger resort town of Sa Coma and the smaller village of Cala Moreya, not far from Cala Millor and Porto Cristo. Cala Moreya is separated from Sa Coma by a small fresh water lagoon and is within easy walking distance. Cala Moreya was originally a tiny fishing village and fishermen still pull in their boats each evening and haul them up a ramp at the end of the small beach. The village has retained its charm and visitors on holiday in the S'Illot area have the option of enjoying the peace and tranquillity of Cala Moreya, or the livelier aspects of its more upmarket neighbour. Both towns have excellent beaches, though Sa Coma beach is much larger, and there are a number of good restaurants (as well as fast food outlets), bars and shops to explore. S'Illot is popular with English families and couples seeking a quiet holiday resort, with the perfect balance of relaxation and excitement on offer.
