If Palma can allow itself to boast of something, it’s the wide variety of activities it has to offer.

If Palma can allow itself to boast of something, it’s the wide variety of activities it has to offer.

The good weather invites both residents and tourists to explore the city in many ways, and if you stay in a 4 star hotel your visit to Palma should be equally outstanding.

Below is a list of activities we suggest you don’t miss while in the city:

Cathedral of Palma

This temple located in the Gothic center of Palma de Mallorca is without a doubt the most iconic monument of the city. Furthermore, from the first week of July, you can also visit the terraces of the Cathedral, which don’t only offer breathtaking views of the city, but are also a little-known hidden corner.

La Lonja

Gothic building in the old city of Palma, where, by day, we can contemplate its wonderful architecture and, by night, its surroundings brim with lively atmosphere thanks to the variety of restaurants and bars you can find in the area.

District of Santa Catalina

A mere 5-minute walk away from our Hotel Costa Azul is the district of Santa Catalina, one of the most emblematic neighborhoods in the city. Its streets, restaurants and bars and its market (Mercat de Santa Catalina) are some of the elements that make this neighborhood one of the city’s main points of interest.

Beaches of Palma

You can find many beaches in Palma. From Ciudad Jardín to the area of Cala Mayor, not to mention El Molinar or Can Pere Antoni - all of these are perfect places in which to freshen up during your holidays.

Hot air balloon ride over Palma

Seeing Palma from the air is probably one of the most romantic activities possible. If you are travelling with your significant other, surprise him or her with a hot air balloon ride and enjoy a unique experience.

Shopping in Palma

If you love shopping, then Palma is the place for you. If you are looking for luxury items, the Rambla del Borne or Jaime III are two areas you should definitely check out. If, on the other hand, you are after typical Mallorcan food or homemade products, we recommend the various markets that are scattered in and around the city.

If you are planning your holidays in Palma and you have already made your hotel reservation these are some suggestions to better get to know the city. If you have any questions, at Hotel Costa Azul we will help you turn your stay into the best possible holiday.
