Majorca’s sunny capital has all of the essential ingredients for a fantastic city break. Set by the sea, a Palma city breaks will see you spending mornings on the beach, afternoons wandering through galleries and museums, and evenings tucking into fabulous food and lively nightlife.
Palma’s Gothic cathedral, La Seu, is its headline attraction but in this handsome city, you can also visit Arab baths, Gothic churches and Moorish buildings; look at a range of art in its galleries; and get lost in the boutique-lined alleyways of its old town.
You’ll also want to try as much of the city’s varied cuisine as possible on a Palma city break. There are inexpensive tapas bars, where you can feast on classics such as tortilla (Spanish omelette with potatoes) and jamón (dry-cured ham), as well as Michelin-starred options, experimental international outlets and bustling food markets. If you’re keeping your costs down, plan your main meal to be from a lunchtime set menu, menú del día.
There’s lots going on in Palma when the sun goes down too, whether your idea of a perfect night out is fine food washed down with Spanish wine or dancing until late with glamorous locals and tourists. Choose between chic rooftop cocktail bars overlooking the sea, live music venues, slick tapas joints, lively drinking spots crammed with locals, and hedonistic nightclubs.
As a contrast to city life, you can spend time relaxing on the beaches in and around Palma. Its Playa Ca'n Pere Antoni is the closest stretch of sand to the city but if you travel further out, you’ll find pretty sheltered bays with facilities as well as quieter coves.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
