Holidays to Playa de Palma put you in one of Majorca’s best-known beach resorts, just a taxi ride from the island’s stylish capital city.
Playa de Palma is a ready-made holiday resort. It’s named after the sliver of fine sand that stretches along its length, and there are bars, shops, and restaurants to suit everyone. It’s got a great location, too, within touching distance of Palma, as well as nearby places like C’an Pastilla and S’Arenal.
The capital’s go-to beach
The name Playa de Palma literally means Palma Beach, because it’s the nearest sandy shoreline to Majorca’s capital. As such, it’s become the most popular strip in this part of the island. And it’s got some serious credentials to back it up – golden sands, a Blue Flag for quality, lots of watersports, and a line-up of 15 snack huts called balnearios.
