For beach holidays with everything you need on the doorstep, Playa De Palma is a well-equipped resort with fabulous sandy beach and just a short trip from the airport.
Playa de Palma sits in the centre of a long sandy stretch of coastline on the south of Majorca, along with the neighbouring resorts C'an Pastilla and El Arenal. About 10km from the capital city of Palma, this beach resort is easy to get to from the airport, with transfers taking around 15 minutes.
The three resorts share a stunning stretch of beach - white sands line the coast for miles and this is the case in Playa de Palma. The beach here has Blue Flag status, and is clean and safe, with a gentle incline into the warm clear waters. There are plenty of facilities, including sun loungers and parasols for hire, watersports and snack kiosks, known as balnearios, which are dotted along the whole bay. Here you can buy drinks and snacks, and use shower and toilet facilities.
From Playa de Palma there are good transport links to the neighbouring resorts of El Arenal in the east, and C'an Pastilla to the west. The three resorts are joined by a wide, flat promenade, and the resorts are quite close together so they seem to almost merge into one resort, so it is no problem walking between them. There is also a tourist mini road train that travels between the three resorts providing an easier way to get around.
Situated between El Arenal and Can Pastilla, Playa de Palma enjoys a good mixture of international holiday makers and is less focussed towards any particular nationality (the other two resorts being favoured by German and British tourists respectively).
There are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants serving up a range of international cuisine, and a few that serve more traditional Spanish and Mallorcan dishes, tapas etc. There are also many shops selling beachwear and accessories, holiday essentials and souvenirs.
Playa de Palma is a great base for a beach holiday, with lots of accommodation options, from budget to luxury. There are wealth of supermarkets and good value dining options to complement the many self-catering facilities, which sit alongside four and five star all inclusive hotels.
Most facilities in the resort, including hotels, are situated pretty close to the palm lined beachfront and the area is quite flat making this a very accessible resort for anyone with wheelchairs or pushchairs.
From Playa de Palma it is only a short trip back into the city of Palma, Majorca's capital city which has plenty of shopping and sightseeing opportunities. There are regular buses to Palma city throughout the day.
