Beach hop around Palma de Mallorca's bay on your holidays, from popular El Arenal, east of Palma, to lively Magaluf to the southwest. Visit Cap de Formentor in northern Mallorca for turquoise lagoons and fine powdery beaches shaded by pine trees. Or go north-east to Cala Mesquida's secluded coves on your Palma beach holiday.
Escape the crowds on Palma beach holidays at the sandy cove of Cala Llitera and at Cala Torta, a quiet beach near Cavelleria favoured by surfers in eastern Mallorca. Seek out the tiny fishing village of Còlonia de Sant Pere on the north coast for relaxed seafood lunches on your beach holiday.
On beach holidays in Palma Bay, go kite surfing at Cap de Ses Salines, renowned for its large waves. You'll find good snorkelling all around the island, but join the experts at Port de Pollença, among rocky headlands on Mallorca's north-west coast. Head to El Arenal and Magaluf near Palma for banana boats and jet skis on your beach holiday.
Take little children on beach holidays to Es Trenc, south-east of Palma, where they can paddle in shallow waters. Teenagers will prefer the Bay of Alcúdia in north-west Mallorca for its lively waterfront, buzzing with cafes and discos. Or take a nature trip to S'Albufera Natural Park on your Palma family holiday, a protected bird and wetland area beside the sea.
After a day on Palma Bay's beaches, make your way to designer bars dotted around the bay to sip champagne at sunset. Dress up to join well-dressed locals on the nightly stroll along Palma's Passeig Marítim seafront promenade. Or dance the night away in lively bars at Magaluf south-west of Palma.
