Palma de Mallorca is the capital of Spain's Balearic Islands and is the largest city in Mallorca. Situated just off the coast of the mainland looking out to Barcelona and Valencia, it truly is a magical getaway for holiday makers. The capital city will enchant you with its many restaurants, historical landmarks, shops and pristine white beaches.
Palma de Mallorca enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with hot, sunny summers and mild, stormy winters. Anytime between May until the end of October would be a perfect time to make your Palma de Mallorca holidays, when you can expect constant temperatures above 20-25 degrees. The city airport (PMI) welcomes daily flights from many European cities and the centre is a 20-minute bus ride. The time zone is GMT+2.
The city of Palma de Mallorca has a multicultural historical background with Arabic, Roman and Gothic influences. Among the many interesting landmarks, a must-see is Mallorca's most spectacular cathedral, Catedral de Mallorca. Other historical sites to see on your Palma de Mallorca holidays include the Castell de Bellver and the Banys Árabs.
The area by the port is referred to as the Paseo Maritimo Palma. Not only is it the gateway to the sparkling shore but you will also find chic restaurants, discoteques, bars and see the Cathedral lit up at night. In Palma de Mallorca there is a great selection of fresh seafood options and traditional Majorcan cuisine including the famous 'Sobrasada', which is a raw cured sausage. There are a number of popular beach areas, each with it's own unique beauty. The closest beach to the capital is the Cala Major and for snorkelling enthusiasts Cala Barka beach is highly recommended.
