Time spent in the Balearic Islands is guaranteed to be time spent well, and Palma Nova should be high on your list to visit next. Despite its close proximity to Magaluf, the atmosphere is very different in this popular tourist resort. Stretches of golden sand curve around the hotels and villas that make up Palma Nova's landscape, offering a scenic setting for your 2021 holiday. If you are keen to try out a variety of water sports, fill up on traditional Spanish fare, and explore surrounding resorts on a budget, Palma Nova is the place to go.
Relaxing days by the pool, sightseeing at local landmarks, boat trips to secret caves and coves - the tropical Spanish town caters to all tastes. Since it was the very first part of the island to be built purposely for tourism, it is without a doubt one of Majorca's most well-known holiday destinations.
Welcoming approximately 300 days of sunshine per year, Palma Nova holidays will appeal to a diverse crowd. What's more, the town is based just a 20-30 minute drive from Son Sant Joan International airport – you could be there sooner than you think.
