This paper describes the lithology and stratigraphy of Pleistocene deposits exposed in coastal cliff sections near the small island of s’Illot, located on the Alcudia peninsula on the southern side of Pollença Bay in northern Mallorca. Analysis of palaeosols and aeolianites from the sequence is described. These deposits potentially span some 100k years in the Late Pleistocene and record changing palaeoenvironments, distinct lithologies and well-defined stratigraphic relationships that make this location ideal for teaching Quaternary studies.
