Palma

Palma de Mallorca

Palma – the pearl of the Mediterranean is one of our favorite destinations in Europe. Being a relatively condensed city makes it easy to discover all of Palma’s rich culture heritage and amazing gastronomic variety on foot.

Thanks to its Mediterranean location, Palma’s a year-round destination. Personally, I prefer visiting during the off-season months, as the summer tends to get pretty intense with high temperatures and a few too many tourists for my liking. And the weather during fall, winter and early spring is actually quite pleasant and sunny.

In the last couple of years, dozens of trendy restaurants, boutique hotels, super cool bars, health cafés, art galleries and world-class museums have opened up in Palma de Mallorca. If you’ve not been there for a while, it’s definitely time to revisit!

The most popular areas to explore is the historic neighborhood of Casco Antiguo, and the popular old-town, La Lonja, with its narrow, cobblestone streets and many local tapas bars.
The popular district of Santa Catalina is also one of our favorites – as is a stroll along the lovely sea-front promenade by Paseo Marítimo. The fisherman’s barrio of Portixol is also worth a visit and just a bit further away from town, you’ll find Palma Beach and Playa de Palma. For golfers, Palma offers a stunning hillside golf course at Son Vida.

It’s easy to explore the rest of Mallorca and there are plenty of car rental companies at the airport and in Palma to choose from. The island has good roads and is full of gorgeous beaches, adorable coves, pine forests and an almost countless amount of small, charming villages, Deia and Santanyí being just two of our favorites.
For some visitors, Mallorca is a paradise for hiking. The island’s natural beauty and often dramatic terrain create a unique and intrguing environemnt. Gifted with two different mountain ranges – Serra de Tramuntana and Sierra de Llevant – Mallorca has more than five summits towering over 1,000 meters in height. There are hiking trails for all levels and the stunning ocean views are never far away.
The beauty of Mallorca is that the island really has something for everyone. You can sunbathe, scuba dive, go hiking, biking or just let yourself be absorbed by the cultural wealth in Palma – and then just a couple of hours later enjoy some of the best food and nightlife in Europe.  All year round.
