Palma Nova Holidays

Show on Map

A stone’s throw from vibrant Magalluf, popular Palma Nova is a firm favourite for dedicated sun-seekers.

Beaches: a trio of delights

The gorgeous horseshoe-shaped bay boasts 3 long, white sandy beaches, with Blue Flag-awarded Playa Palma Nova the jewel in a glistening crown. The silky sand slopes gently into shallow water, providing 500 metres of spacious beach. In 10 minutes, you can walk along the promenade all the way to Magalluf.

Party in Magalluf

With the island’s party capital just a 10-minute walk away along the coast, it’s easy to indulge in Magalluf’s world-renowned nightlife, which includes one of Europe’s biggest clubs, BCM. You can stroll back along the promenade in the early hours, then spend the day chilling out in Palma Nova.

Arrrr, me hearties!

No one is ever too old to play at being a pirate, and thanks to the famous Pirates Adventure Show everyone can. Since it opened in 1985, more than 3 million people have been entertained by swashbuckling pirates, pyrotechnics and panto in a whirlwind of high-sea japes. The kids will be mesmerised by the circus acrobatics taking place as you all tuck into dinner around a huge ship.

Insider Tip

It’s easy to get distracted by all Palma Nova has to offer, but it’s worth setting aside a day to visit the island’s capital Palma. It’s just 20 minutes by car, and you can explore the formidable Gothic cathedral, wander narrow cobbled streets and visit the hilltop castle for stunning views of the harbour and city. After an afternoon of sightseeing you can shop for high-end souvenirs such as Majorcan pearls in the streets around the famous tree-lined Passeig des Borne.

Best beaches

Without doubt the resort’s Blue Flag beach Playa Palma Nova, with its shallow warm waters, is one for all the family to enjoy. At 500 metres long it’s spacious enough for everyone to nab a good spot, despite its huge popularity. If you want to relax somewhere quieter, head to Palma Nova’s smallest beach Playa Carregador by the marina, the little Son Caliu cove 2 miles from Palma Nova or Son Matias on the way to Magalluf which has a picturesque jetty.

Top sights

As one of the first purpose-built resorts on the island, Palma Nova offers heaps of amusements. Golf Fantasia is a floodlit mini-golf complex set in lush tropical gardens complete with caves and a waterfall, while the famous Pirates Adventure Show is a must-see with an adult-themed performance in the evenings. The Palma Nova Western Park theme park is well worth a visit too.

Out and about

With water sports from kite-surfing to paragliding, Palma Nova has plenty for the adrenaline junkie. For a thrill-seeking day head to Karting Magalluf and enjoy a whizz around the track, or travel to Palma Nova Western Park for slides and splashes – you can also lazily float along its relaxing artificial river. For even more sedate but equally entertaining options you can hire a pedalo or go sea-fishing in the gorgeous blue of the Mediterranean.

Eating and drinking

The restaurants in the resort’s centre and along the promenade serve up food from most corners of the world. If you love fresh seafood there’s an abundance of it in Palma Nova, in particular at the marina on Playa Carregador and Son Matias Beach. Chill out at a waterfront bar such as Chi Lounge to enjoy stunning ocean views, ambient tunes and mouth-watering Asian delicacies.


A top shopping spot in Palma Nova is the promenade, where you’ll find traditional Spanish pottery and embroidered linen jostling for space next to novelty T-shirts and kiss-me-quick hats. The promenade is also great for shoes, leather goods and jewellery. Head to the Son Matias at the end of the promenade to seek out a little shopping gallery filled with boutiques and restaurants.


Palma Nova may be Magalluf’s quieter neighbour but that doesn’t mean everyone wants an early night. Spanish and British pubs cater for parents and kids, as do many of the karaoke bars. Party people who want to give Magalluf a miss also have plenty of choices with DJ’s filling the floor at clubs such as Banana Joe’s and Pacha.
