Mallorca’s capital is a Mediterranean hub of beautiful scenes and glorious weather. Surrounded on one side by the calm, blue sea and distant mountains on the other side, it’s a post-card perfect backdrop for any holiday. Throughout the city there is plenty of eye-catching architecture, set rigid against a seemingly eternal blue sky. Sitting on a slope just above the base of the city, the old quarter watches out with pride. Here, you’ll find a tangle of alleyways that meander past cute cafes, tiny shops, and local restaurants, as well as numerous museums and galleries that showcase the island’s budding art scene. Once the exploring is over, kick back and relax with a beer and seafood during a typical long lunch. Pick a place that looks out over the sand and the sea, and soak up the laidback lifestyle of Palma de Mallorca. Our Palma de Mallorca apartments span all parts of the city, whether you’re looking for a beach break or a cultural trip.
Palma de Mallorca is a popular hotspot for sun-seekers who are on the hunt for some sun and sand. Its idyllic location in the Mediterranean Sea provides it with a pleasant climate year round, and there are a number of sprawling beaches that offer the perfect place to kick back and relax.
To the west of Palma de Mallorca you’ll find the Cala Major beach, which is a wide stretch of sand popular with locals and tourists in the summer months. It offers uninterrupted views out to sea and there are plenty of bars, museums, and restaurants that line its perimeter to keep you busy. To the east of the city there’s Playa de Palma, which sprawls out for almost 5km. This is Palma’s best-known beach and gets very busy during the summer months. If you’re looking for a vibrant backdrop, then grab a table at one of the beachside bars or restaurants and while away a sunny afternoon.
Visiting the beach is a firm favourite for tourists in Palma, and our great selection of beachside Palma de Mallorca apartments provide the perfect place to stay for soaking up the sun, the sand, and the sea.
To go along with its status as a popular holiday destination, Palma de Mallorca accommodation offers plenty of beachside options, including self-catering studios that overlook the sea, and luxury hotels that run straight out onto the sandy shores. In the city centre, amongst the twisting laneways of the old town, intimate hostels and guesthouses proffer traditional places to stay, and a range of apartments for rent can be found around all the major attractions. The accommodation in Palma de Mallorca is cheap and within walking distance of the beach and the iconic landmarks.
As well as beaches, Palma de Mallorca boasts an incredibly rich history. It has been inhabited by civilisations since 5000BC, before it was invaded and taken over by the Romans in 123BC. Its history only became widely known back in the 1950s, when tourists began flocking to its shores to experience its past life and to glimpse the remains of ancient civilisations.
Throughout its life, Mallorca has seen a whole host of invasions for such a small island. The most famous invasion took place in the 1300s and was led by King James I of Aragon. He attacked the city with a huge army of 1500 horse and 15000 men – a number that the small island couldn’t compete against. Today, the La Seu, also known as Palma Cathedral, is the island’s most important historic site. It was erected over the remains of an old mosque in 1229 after King James’ invasion, but work on it wasn’t finished until a few centuries later, in 1601.
Getting to our apartments in Palma de Mallorca is easy with the range of public transport available. The island is serviced by the Palma de Mallorca Airport, which offers a variety of methods for getting around the island and into the city. The City Buses are the best way to get around, and there are a number of routes that travel from the airport terminals to various locations around the city. They also provide a great form of transport when you’re in the city, if you want to quickly get from one attraction to another or explore more of the island.
Alternatively, you can hop in a taxi from outside the airport terminals. The journey is quick, depending on traffic, and prices are very reasonable.
