A Majorcan classic
Palma Nova, on Majorca’s southwest coast, is Magaluf’s quieter, family-friendly neighbour. The place is purpose-built around a trio of white sand beaches. And with friendly bars and restaurants packing the promenade, and the island’s capital, Palma, just 15 kilometres away, there’s plenty to keep you busy away from the sands, too.
Three sandy beaches
You always get plenty of sunbathing space in Palma Nova, with 3 beaches running the length of the horseshoe-shaped bay. The star is the beach in the middle – Playa Palma Nova is a Blue Flag number with 500 metres of white sand shelving gently into the safe, shallow water. The promenade keeps going all the way to Magaluf, 10 minutes away.
Mini-golf and a waterpark
Away from the beaches, Palma Nova has Golf Fantasia – mini-golf with 3 floodlit courses that wind their way through caves and round tropical waterfalls. And there are more great activities close by. Just up the road, at Karting Magaluf, you can go-kart on professional tracks. And for more thrills, there’s Aqualand waterpark just outside Magaluf.
Daytrips to Palma
The island’s capital, Palma, is just 20 minutes’ drive away. Here you’ve got a Gothic cathedral surrounded by narrow cobbled streets, and a hilltop castle with wide-screen views of the city and harbour. You can shop for upmarket souvenirs like Majorcan pearls and leather shoes and bags in the streets around the Passeig des Borne. And La Llonja district is the place for tapas.
