Guide to Palma

The capital city of the group of islands known as the Balearics, and located on the groups largest island, Majorca, Palma is one of the best known destinations for travellers from the United Kingdom, who have been coming here for many years to enjoy this beautiful part of the world.

With a focus on the needs of the tourist along with a wonderfully warm, sunny and dry climate, Palma won over its many visitors and cemented its position as one of the top holiday destinations. There are different aspects to the area that make it so special too. In the heart of the city the beaches draw the crowds in the day, whilst at night the many clubs and bars take centre stage, with music until dawn.
