The resort area of Palm Springs is nestled in the Californian mountains in the Coachella Valley, halfway between the Pacific Ocean coast of the USA and the state of Arizona.

Enjoy the high life in sunny California on holidays in Palm Springs.


This desert city feels like a mirage to weary travellers with its superb hotels, fantastic shopping, world-class golf courses, A-list celebrities and a climate that’s the envy of the world. But Palm Springs is very real and holidaymakers return again and again to enjoy this fantastic little city.

Year-round sunshine, hardly a drop of rain and a laidback attitude to match the mild weather make Palm Springs holidays an ideal choice for those looking to get away from it all and enjoy the warmth of the weather and the west coast hospitality.

Just two hours from both Los Angeles and San Diego, Palm Springs is an ideal stop on an American road trip holiday, though there is plenty to do for holidays based only in Palm Springs.

There are many high-end hotels and condos in Palm Springs, plus a plethora of spa hotels that take advantage of the natural hot springs in the area. Golfers will be in 18-hole heaven, with a huge selection of excellent courses and golf-based hotels and resorts.

There are flights direct from the UK into Palm Springs, which arrive at Palm Springs International Airport (PSP), though more frequent flights arrive into other US cities and connect with Palm Springs.

Lovers of luxury will adore striking Palm Springs. There’s an outstanding selection of restaurants and shopping opportunities alongside the high-end hotels. Take a trip down Palm Canyon Drive to splash the cash.

A-list celebrities from Hollywood and Los Angeles flock to Palm Springs for its fantastic weather and chilled out attitude, but it's the beauty of Palm Springs that really sets it apart. Surrounded by Mount San Jacinto State Park and its granite peaks and forests, the city benefits from the great outdoors as well as the luxury high life indoors. Nearby, Joshua Tree National Park fascinates with its trees and rock formations, and the mountain ranges of San Bernardino and Santa Rosa are also close at hand and worthy of exploration. The Indian Canyons of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians are also nearby.

You can access the San Jacinto range via the Aerial Tramway that runs from Palm Springs. Lounge in a spa by day, and take to the mountains to camp under the stars by night.

If you don't want to stray too far from the city, there’s plenty to keep you amused. Take time to visit Palm Springs Art Museum, Moorten Botanical Garden and the Living Centre, which is a zoo and botanical garden. Family holidays are also a pleasure in Palm Springs, with attractions such as the 20-acre Knott's Soak City water park to keep the younger members of your party happy.

Music lovers will want to be in Palm Springs when the annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival at nearby Indio stirs into action. Known simply as Coachella, this famous event attracts international music stars and music lovers from all around the globe.

Palm Springs is a pleasant desert city where every kind of visitor will find something wonderful. Find your holidays to Palm Springs today with TravelSupermarket.

*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.
