If you want to be the one making people envious this summer, coming to spend your holidays in Palma de Mallorca is the best choice. The largest island in the Balearic archipelago has more in store for you than you can imagine.
With the arrival of the good weather, we get the urge to start thinking about where we want to spend our summer holidays. Choosing a destination is difficult, but not so difficult when we know the advantages of going to Mallorca. Don’t worry, you’ve finally found a place that has everything you ever wanted!
The ways of getting there are easy, you only need to take a direct flight or if you find yourself in other cities like Valencia, you can take the Fast Ferry and live the adventure of travelling by boat while enjoying the vastness of the sea.
Don’t worry about the Mallorcan climate because summer is always great and it’s mild in winter. The summer months have an average temperature of 30.4 degrees, blue sky and an orange sunset, where the night almost turns into day, which will make you want to go around the city and just love your holiday in Palma de Mallorca.
The city plays host to 14 million tourists in the summer months, which tells you it’s a destination that many come back to again again, no matter what. You’re going to be short on time for enjoying its 262 beaches!
The top ones are:
Cala Mesquida, for people who love white sand beaches with turquoise crystal clear water and lots of surrounding greenery. It’s ideal for day trips, trekking, going to Capdepera and going into a castle or to a golf course.
Another of the attractive beaches is the Bahía Puerto de Alcudia. It has the most developed areas with hotels and tourist complexes. Its infrastructure and water activities make it the perfect place for families since its chock full of history, bars and boutiques.
Who’s a fan of golden sand? If you’re one Playa de Muro is just south of Bahía Puerto de Alcudia and is one of the largest beaches. If you’re looking for spectacular hotels, unique restaurants with exceptional cuisine and the best beach clubs, this is your place. We also recommend visiting Cala Portals Nous, Playa de Palma if you don’t want to go to far from the city, Cala Mondragó, Cala Llamp if you feel like a “natural pool” and if you’re a fan of water sports we recommend Son Serra de Marina and Puerto Pollença to do kite-surfing and windsurfing. You see, you have almost everything you need close at hand.
