The capital of the island of Mallorca, Palma, is located in the bay of the same name and enjoys an excellent climate all year round (with an average annual temperature of 17.9° C). Known for its sun and beach tourism, it is also home to more than half of Mallorca’s population.
The neighbourhoods of Palma encompasses the vibrant city centre of the Borne known as the 'golden mile' and the main shopping street of Avenida Jaime III, the historic area of Casco Antiguo or Palma Old Town as it's known, the popular tourist zone La Lonja, the trendy area of Santa Catalina, the sea front lively strip along Paseo Maritimo, the fisherman's barrio of Portixol and Playa de Palma, and the exclusive hillside golf area of Son Vida.
For those wanting to relax by the sea there is the long promenade right along the seafront where locals walk, jog or roller blade. This is the place to admire the impressive marinas or a way to explore the islands coastline by chartering a boat to explore.
Palma is a vibrant and intoxicating mix of art, architecture and culture alongside the ocean and offers an excellent variety of activity, with every kind of entertainment possible, from cinemas to theatres, operas and rock concerts.
