Looking for a great city break? Then you should definitely think about Palma in Palma de Mallorca.
I went for 3 days to the island to enjoy and visit Palma.
Famous for its stunning sunsets, the city’s most imposing site is the huge 13th century cathedral. This beautiful building is close to the 10th century Arab baths and is the gateway to the city’s old quarter of narrow winding streets and ornate squares where orange and olive trees give shade to the many charming street cafés.
Here are some tips that I would like to share with you!
This island doesn’t only offer beautiful beaches, it also has a vibrant capital city.
The famous cathedral ‘La Seu‘ is a major architectural landmark. The magnificent cathedral is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture.
And it has a beautiful garden.
The beach in the city is not great but it is a nice place to relax. ‘Amina Beach’ is a trendy place to drink a cocktail or eat a snack. Be aware that you have a reserve a beach chair in this bar ( costs €35 per person).
The places where I have spend my nights were next to the harbour of Palma. Here are some names of the places: Boulevart, Time Square, Al Vent.
Of course you have to eat Paella and Tapas in Spain. I went to 2 traditional restaurants during my weekend. For delicious Paella you can go to restaurant ‘Calixto’ and for tapas to ‘Bar Dia‘.
Some street views in Palma:
At Plaza Espana (more less the main square) is the neighbourhood where you can really feel that Mallorca’s capital is a big city that comes in a small package, with plenty of bars, cafes and fast food restaurants combined with boutiques and department stores.
I stayed overnight in an Airb&b apartment. But please be aware! When you book with Airb&b to communicate all details of your trip; me and my friend didn’t had the house number of the apartment and even not the number of the right contact person. We had to search an other option to spend the first night until we could reach the owner of the apartment!
Good communication is the key 🙂
A good beach alternative near the city is Illetas Beach. This is a small beach resort with cristal clear water. You can use bus number 3 to reach this place or take a taxi (cost around €20)
This was the short story of my lovely trip in Palma.
I hope you liked my blog post.
