Palma de Majorca is the capital of the Spanish Balearic Island of Majorca. Known to many holidaymakers as just the entry point for their cheap holiday to Magaluf, Palma Nova or countless other resorts, if you're after a city break with a beach on tap then you really should be considering a holiday to Palma de Majorca.
History lovers are in for a real treat on a holiday to Palma with plenty of heritage to explore. This includes the Castell de Bellver which also boasts amazing views, the Pueblo Español, the Catedral de Mallorca and the Banys Àrabs, or Moorish Baths. Take time to stroll the Paseo Maritimo where you can see the Cathedral lit up at night and you'll also find the best of the nightlife here too.
Other attractions include taking a day trip to Aqualand and seeing the modern art at the Museo de Arte Español Contemporáneo which features works by artists including Dali, Picasso and Miro. Read more on Palma here.
Great news - since Majorca is such a popular holiday destination, there are many cheap flights throughout the year, although as you would expect they get more expensive the hotter the sunshine. Flights depart from all over the UK so there is no reason why you can't head off on a holiday in Palma from your local one.
Most holidays to Palma don't come with transfers included, but that's ok because the local bus runs a regular service at a very reasonable price. There are also taxis available, and since it's only six miles to the centre from the airport it won't break the bank - particularly if you're sharing.
Expect hotels in Palma to be particularly busy between July and September when the peak crowds hit the island, but outside this you will find plenty of availability and good rates on a range of hotels from self catering and budget accommodation to five-star luxury.
The city is quite large with sprawling suburbs so it's best to do a little research about the area your hotel is in before you book so that you can save time and money on daily travel. The central areas such as Sindicat, La Seu, Corte and Mercat are firmly within the Old Town and will be much sought-after. Seek out hotels in nearby areas such as Foners, Arxiduc and Santa Catalina to save on your Palma holiday without sacrificing comfort.
