On a first visit to Palma de Mallorca, see the medieval Bellver Castle and Moorish-style Almudaina Palace in the Old Town. Relax on popular resort beaches like El Arenal nearby, but go further on return visits to seek out quiet beaches along the north Mallorca coast.
Palma is set on a sandy bay in the west of Mallorca island with the bustling resorts of El Arenal to the east and Magaluf to the west. You'll find the majority of Palma's city sights located just north-east of Palma Marina, in the medieval Old Town, including the Gothic Cathedral and 700-year-old Bellver Castle. To the north of Palma are millionaires' mansions and secret coves tucked away in craggy mountains around Deià. You'll find family resorts on the north side of Mallorca around Pollensa, and watersports in the south of the island. At the heart of the island, you can experience traditional Mallorca life.
Explore Palma's Old Town attractions from the vast Gothic Cathedral to the Almudaina Palace, first built by the Moors overlooking Palma Bay. Or visit the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation to see paintings and sculptures by the renowned Catalan artist. Relax on sandy Can Pastilla and El Arenal beaches nearby and cool off in the calm waters. Or take a trip through the countryside onboard a wooden train to Sóller, on Mallorca's north coast, passing through citrus groves and almond orchards on the way.
Take in the Palma district of Santa Catalina, home to a vibrant fruit and vegetable market. Or join the city's fashionistas for chilled beers in the old fisherman's quarter of Portixol, east of the Old Town. Head to the north coast town of Deià to visit the Robert Graves Museum, the former country home of the early 20th-century British poet. Get off the beaten track and walk the windswept cliffs and secluded beaches along Mallorca's north-eastern coast at Cap de Formentor.
