Sunshine, parties until dawn, water sports and day tours; you’ll never be stuck for something to do in Palma Nova. Located on the south west coast of Majorca, the resort is twinned with the more boisterous resort of Magaluf and together they boast some of the most popular beaches on the island. There is a great selection of accommodation on offer and Palma Nova is perfect for both groups of friends on a budget as well as those looking for upmarket luxury in the sun.
Palma Nova’s horseshoe shaped bay is a mix of crystal clear water and soft golden sand, so bag yourself a sun lounger and soak up the warm Mediterranean sun. Palma Nova’s main beach, Son Matias, appeals to all and is the hub of this resort.
There are hundreds of activities to keep the throngs of sun seekers occupied, from snorkeling to paragliding and as the sun sets, Palma Nova comes alive with clubs, restaurants and bars drawing in tourists from across the island. The pretty harbour in the traditionally Spanish part of the resort is perfect for an evening stroll, a cold beer and a selection of tasty tapas.
You could happily spend your holiday on Palma Nova’s idyllic beach - with great facilities and fun beach activities lazy days are tempting. If you can drag yourself away from the shimmering sand and turquoise water there are plenty of other things on offer around the resort. Take to the seas on one of the popular glass bottom boats and spot some fantastic sea life or try your hand at go-karting.
Palma Nova holidays are great if you are looking to fill your days with trips out and about. Try one of the waterparks in Magaluf for family friendly fun or head to nearby Son Amar to catch a West-End style show. Palma Nova, literally meaning ‘New Palma’ is only 15km from the capital city Palma where you can find dozens of cultural sights, historical buildings and traditional Spanish streets.
Palma Nova has great transport links to many destinations all over the island and trips inland, for hikes, monastery visits or simply to experience rural Majorcan mountain villages, are all easily arranged. A trip to nearby ‘Marineland,’ which boasts a small zoo, is also a favourite with families and adults alike.
With a more chilled out vibe than the thumping Magaluf, yet still bursting with energy and long hot days of fun, Palma Nova holidays are sure to tick all the right boxes. Begin your Majorcan adventure in Palma Nova with lastminute.com. Check out lastminute.com for fantastic Spain holiday deals.
