Palma de Mallorca is, for a large number of European tourists, the capital of the Mediterranean summer. Its beautiful rocky coves, cliffs and fine white sand, surrounding by planes, small pine tree hills or the impressive Serra de Tramuntana, make up for a landscape that thousands of people dream off throughout the year.
With the arrival of the typical holiday months like July, August and September, Majorca and its capital open their doors to receive tourists. Before them, Palma offers them the charm of its exceptional climate and the pampering of its unique services: the city is full of boutiques, restaurants of all kinds, theatres, nightlife and many place of interest.
A simple drive through the coastline is an experience at any time of day: the Cathedral of Palma overlooking the centre of the city, next to the majestic Almudaina Palace, facing the Port of Palma and the sea.
The walking tours through the capital of Majorca are numerous and diverse: there are tours along the courtyards of historical houses and palaces in the centre of the city, which are still inhabited today. Tapas and wine tours in which to enjoy the typical products of the island. Other tours include shopping in some of the most prestigious shops in Europe, or to learn the art of the museums and galleries… Each one is a different city proposal, suitable for all tastes and times of day.
To enjoy the full splendour of Palma the summer months -specially August- are simply the best. The heat is at its maximum, but the city is full of fun plans: concerts, traditional celebrations, open air cinema in front of Palma’s Cathedral, night shopping and markets, sailing competitions…. The touristic heart of the Mediterranean is working full time!
The accommodation in the capital is varied and many are those that prefer to book a hotel in the Bay of Palma Nova, or a room in Playa de Palma in order to enjoy the best of the city, without giving up on the commodity of being steps away from the beach.
