Palmanova - sun, sea and sand heaven for all your family and friends
With its pristine breaches, the Majorcan island paradise of Palmanova is quickly growing into one of Europe’s most popular seaside holiday destinations. The holiday island of Majorca is home to many wonderful destinations such as Palmanova. Palmanova was one of the first tourist destinations on the island to have been specifically built as a resort. With the introduction of package holidays and low cost airlines, Palmanova has blossomed into one of Europe’s most sought after holiday destinations. The resort sits on the west coast of Majorca in the province of Calvia – a mere 15 kilometers from the island’s capital city of Palma. Even though Palmanova is a stone’s throw away from the well know Majorcan resort of Magalluf, it is a little more quiet and toned down. You can enjoy your family time and the Palmanova holiday villas and pop over to Magalluf for the party atmosphere and nightlife.
Palmanova Holiday Rentals - soak up the sun on your Palmanova Holidays
The weather on the island is usually hot and humid with most all-year-round sunshine. Summer temperatures during August and July can soar up to 40 degrees Celsius. Palmanova also experiences a month or two of heavy rainfall much like mainland Spain does between November and March. Palmanova has three spectacular beaches joined by a long seafront promenade. The beach closest to Magalluf is called Son Matias and is a sandy paradise lined with cafes, bars, hotels, shops and Palmanova holiday rentals. At 500 meters long, Playa de Palmanova is the longest of the three golden beaches. The best beach for water sports like paragliding, kite surfing and scuba diving is Palmanova’s Playa Beach. The smallest of its beaches is the Es Carregador Beach. This cosy spot boasts a marina with a diverse range of sumptuous seafood restaurants. All of the resort’s beaches have been awarded Blue Flag status on numerous occasions and have lifeguards present during the summer.
Palmanova is not the huge ‘party-town’ that Magalluf is, but also offers some great nighttime entertainment. Peppered amongst the shops, hotels and Palmanova apartments are a few bars and a nightclub. Whether you are after a night of dancing, live entertainment or karaoke, you are sure to find it in Palmanova. If you prefer a more relaxing night, visit some of the stylish pavement cafes and restaurants. Spend the late afternoon and evening people watching or enjoy the sun setting over the Mediterranean with a loved one. Because of the large number of bars and eateries, the drinks and food is not only varied but also competitively priced.
