Holidays to Palma Nova mean days on a super-sandy beach, bar-hopping nights and adventurous watersports. Plus, there’s Majorca’s sophisticated capital just 20 minutes' drive away.
Majorca is one of the most popular resorts in Spain, and when you spend time in Palma Nova – either before or after your cruise – you’ll see why. Sun, sea, sand and a vibrant bar scene make this the ultimate getaway.
A stone’s throw from the capital
Palma Nova is located just a 20-minute drive from Majorca’s capital, Palma. Like its neighbour Magaluf, it’s known for its beach scene and lively nightlife. But the vibe here is a little more quiet and relaxed, making it perfect for families. With friendly hotels, family-run restaurants and fun attractions dotted through the town, there’s plenty to keep you busy. Having the bustling Palma on your doorstep offers plenty of extra excitement, too.
Blue Flag bliss
The crowning attractions of this little town are its white sand beaches. Playa Carregador, Playa Palma Nova, and Playa Son Matias are some of the finest stretches of sand in the area. All three have Blue Flag status and warm shallow waters that are ideal for paddling children and more adventurous adults seeking a proper swim. Another excellent beach can be found down the coast at Magaluf, where plenty of bars and restaurants line the sand.
When you’ve had your fill of sunbathing, wander up from the beach and explore this charming resort’s attractions. In the centre of town, you’ll find a miniature golf course and plenty of small shops and cafés. Take to the main promenade, the Passeig Mar, and you can stretch your legs and indulge in some souvenir-hunting. Just up the road in Coast d’en Blanes, there’s the Marineland aquarium, while neighbouring Magaluf boasts a fun fairground attraction known as Katmandu Park.
See the sights of Palma
If you can tear yourself away from the delights of Palma Nova, make some time to visit the city of Palma. Here you can wander by the water, admiring the Gothic cathedral and the imposing Almudaina Palace. Palma is also a fantastic place to wander, getting lost in the winding back streets of the old quarter. Or you could brush up on your history at the museums, or stroll through the markets sampling the Balearic cuisine at the city’s many eateries.
