Find out why Palmanova is your perfect summer holiday destination on Mallorca

Palmanova local guide

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.

Hotel and accommodation offers in Palmanova

Palmanova has 3 beautiful beach areas, which opens for great opportunities for sea view from your balcony, at your chosen accommodation.

Palmanova is packed with fun things to do for the entire family, all day and night long.

During daytime, the beach areas makes for the best activities, such as jet-ski’s, banana boat, water cycles, surfing, paragliding, and beach volley courts.

In the early evening hours, go and visit the crazy fun park, “House of Katmandu”, or the Golf Fantasia, miniature golf jungle. There is of course also a bunch of playgrounds, karts, arcades and other fun stuff for children.

There’s no weekly marketplace in Palmanova, but all stores are open from early morning to late evening. If you want to see a Majorcan market, I would suggest that you go and visit Sineu on Wednesdays, or Alcudia on Tuesdays or Sundays.

Palmanova is located just 15-20 minutes from Palma airport. The resort belongs to the municipality of Calvià.

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.
