Playa de Palma
Playa de Palma (Platja de Palma) is a 6 km long district of the island's capital after which this district is named. From the southern center of Palma, starting with Can Pastilla, the "Playa" extends to the southeastern S'Arenal. Starting from the Catedral-Basílica de Santa María de Mallorca (Cathedral of Palma) “La Seu” the extensive promenades extend with many shopping possibilities.
Due to the direct proximity to the airport “Aeroport de Son Sant Joan”, Playa de Palma is Mallorca's largest holiday resort. The wide range of bars, clubs, restaurants and hotels along the beach promenade leaves little to be desired.
The well-developed infrastructure should be emphasized, with lifeguards, free toilets and the possibility of renting sun loungers and umbrellas.
The Playa de Palma is the ideal starting point to discover the island for yourself as a holidaymaker: The city center of Palma can be reached quickly by public transport and there is a lot to do in the immediate vicinity.
