Holidays to Palma take you to Majorca’s glammed-up capital. Here, you’ve got the culture and attractions of a lively city, together with great beaches and nightlife.
Take a holiday to Palma on the beautiful island of Majorca and you’ll find yourself in a place of history, culture and fine cuisine. The nearby beaches are pretty hard to beat, too.
The sparkling capital of the Balearics
Majorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands, and its capital Palma de Majorca the biggest urban centre in the archipelago. Located on the southwestern coast of the island, this lively city is home to half Majorca’s population. With its relaxed vibe, energetic nightlife and varied tourist attractions, it’s a cruise destination to suit almost any traveller. Come here for fun in the sun, and you’ll likely find yourself charmed by the picturesque old quarter and cultural highlights.
Palma’s skyline is dominated with beautiful old buildings and formidable landmarks. This makes the town an ideal holiday spot for history buffs and budding photographers. Highlights include the spectacular L’Almudaina Palace and Palma Cathedral, known locally as La Seu, both of which rest next to an artificial lake overlooking the sea. A little further from the centre, the 14th-century Bellver Castle offers excellent panoramic views of the city.
Day trips to the beach
The centre of Palma is free of sandy coastline, but travel a little way out of the city and you’ll come across some excellent beaches. Go east, past the suburb of El Molinar, and you’ll arrive at Playa de Palma, a blanket of soft golden sand about an hour’s walk from Les Meravelles. Closer to the centre you’ll find a pleasant stretch at C’an Pere Antoni. To the west, the best swimming and sunbathing can be had on Cala Major.
Ferrocarril de Soller
One of the things Majorca is most famous for is its historic narrow-gauge railway line, the Ferrocarril de Soller. Built at the beginning of the 20th century, this enchanting wooden train starts in Palma and ends in Soller. Enjoy a winding train journey through tunnels, over bridges and across a mountain range. The journey only takes an hour, making it perfect for a day trip – although once you arrive in picturesque Soller, you might find it hard to leave…
