Nine miles west of Palma, on the Balaeric Island of Majorca, lies the popular tourist resort of Palma Nova. Holidays in Palma Nova are popular with families, couples and partygoers alike. Set on a crescent-shaped bay, the beaches of Palma Nova are packed with golden sand and lined with shops, bars and restaurants. Palma Nova is home to three beaches: Son Matias, Son Caliu and Palma Nova beach, all of which have been awarded a blue flag for cleanliness. The original fishing harbour remains, although now there are few fishing boats in comparison to luxury yachts. What’s more flights to Majorca take less than 2.5 hours from most UK departure airports, so a trip to Palma Nova is never too far away.
Holidays in Palma Nova offer a wide choice of activities, including water sports, glassbottom boat rides, a wild west theme park, crazy golf, gokarting, and fun family days out at Marineland, which features dolphin shows and sea lions. Those who fancy a break from the hustle and bustle can explore the Castell d'Alaro, Mallorca's most popular hiking trail. This trail offers stunning panoramic views and features a 15thcentury hilltop castle.
Holidays in Palma Nova are renowned for their lively nightlife and offer a good choice of English pubs, karaoke bars and discos. For more hectic nightlife, partygoers can head to the pulsating nightclubs and bigname DJs of Magaluf.
