Explore one of the most beautiful cities in Europe

The capital of the largest of the Balearic Islands, Palma, is a sought-after weekend and winter location with beautiful new boutique hotels opening at a rapid rate – 62 hotels are due to opening over the next 2 – 3 years. The city offers a large number of trendy eateries particularly in the areas of Santa Catalina, La Lonja and along the seafront of Paseo Maritimo.

The centre of the city is rather small and can easily be explored by foot. Hire bikes and coast along the waterfront promenade all the way from Porto Pi Centre to S’Arenal.
