Nestled in the crook of the Badia de Palma, Majorca's capital is the most stylish of all Mediterranean towns. Shaped by the sea and backed by mountains, Palma City holidays are all about shopping, glitz, glamour and Spanish sophistication. The resort is just 16km from the nearest airport (taxis via the Autopista de Llevant/Ma-19 cost around 25 Euros) with plentiful public transport, a plethora of shops, restaurants and a buzzing nightlife to suit all ages – and budgets.
Holidays to Palma City are paradise for those after fun in the sun, as it offers year-round sunshine, beautiful white sandy beaches and a captivating old town packed with local tapas bars, boutiques, cocktail lounges, baroque buildings and chic rooftop restaurants - providing an eclectic mix of traditional and cosmopolitan city life.
Playa de Palma, the city’s main beach, is a 6km-long beautiful strip of sand facing a lovely promenade with ample opportunities to indulge in. Explore the enchanting old town and its picture-perfect palaces and flower-strewn courtyards, settle on the sands of nearby Palma Nova or take a day trip to beautiful towns including Deia, Soller and Alcudia. For those who want to add a little spice to their holiday, popular bars and clubs can be found near the marina, including Café Barcelona and L'Havana for live jazz and salsa music – otherwise, the party towns of Magaluf and Palma Nova are handily located nearby.
