The islets of Las Illetas in the bay of Palma offer several options for dropping the hook. In the summer this is a very popular lunchtime spot with flotillas and bareboats and as such space can be limited. Lay back in the sun and relax but be prepared to get chummy with your neighbours. Deploy the fenders!
Unfortunately swimming buoys are laid in summer off Playa de Illetas which limits access to one of the sandiest and shallowest parts of the anchorage but it is still a pleasant place to chill-out for the afternoon before heading into one of the more lively parts of the bay of Palma for a more secure night’s sleep.
