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.
Pretty, cultured and never short on entertainment, Palma is reason enough to travel to the sunny island of Majorca. Here's how to spend two memorable days in the capital of this beautiful Balearic.Read moreabout Two days in Palma: What to do on a short break
