Palmanova belongs despite of its name, to the municipality of Calvià, like its neighbouring towns of Magaluf, Santa Ponsa and Peguera.
Palmanova is a resort of many faces and many activities for all ages, and the versatility of this area is undoubetly what has made it so popular.
Palmanova and Magaluf are only separated by a traffic light, which is why you must decide early in your holiday planning if nightlife is something that bothers you. If so, you need to seek to the more eastern part of Palmanova.
Palmanova is purely a beach resort, developed for the purpose, there are no nearby attractions to see here. Better spend a day in Palma and enjoy the many spectacular sights and attractions here.
Palmanova offers more than 100 local restaurants and bars to choose from. If you’re not keen to taste the Mediterranean kitchen traditions, rest assure that there are plenty of fast food restaurants, pizzarias and pubs that will serve your favourite classics.

The Tramuntana region
Tramuntana is both the name of the UNESCO protected mountain range that runs from south to north, as well as the name of the group of municipalities located in or close to these mountains.
When talking about Tramuntana in context of the mountain range, it is referred to as "Serra de Tramuntana", and when talking about the region, it is referred to simply as "Tramuntana".
The largest municipalities of the Tramuntana region, are Calviá and Andratx in the south and Pollenca in the north. The mountain range actually has its roots south of Malagá in Andalusiá.
The Serra de Tramuntana covers a surface of more than 30,000 hectares of landscape in Mallorca. The two main factors that make these mountains so unique, are the dry stone constructions and the hydraulic watering systems evidencing early day farming techniques. In almost any local area of the Tramuntana you travel, you will discover some of these very unique features which contributes to the picturesque settings.
