Palma de Mallorca’s a highly accessible and fully-featured city, and it makes an ideal destination for a weekend break. From the Costa Azul hotel, facing Palma Harbour and the sea, you can tour the whole city on foot, so it’s a perfect operational base for planning your visit.

Today, we’ll give you some ideas about how to get the most out of your forthcoming express trip to Palma.

Tourist attractions
Thanks to the city’s long history, it has many historical and cultural landmarks: amongst them, Bellver Castle and the Cathedral are “musts” for one’s first trip to Palma. The cheapest and best option for seeing the sights is to buy a Palma Pass, a smart card that includes free admissions and discounts for touring the city.

Art and culture
Palma has a rich year-round cultural and entertainment agenda, full of concerts, exhibitions and a full range of initiatives.

Just a few minutes’ walk from our boutique hotel in Palma, art lovers will be able to enjoy the city’s main museums and art centres, including Es Baluard and Caixa Forum, along with numerous art galleries.

Shopping
For several years now, numerous brands well known throughout Spain and internationally have been setting up shop in this city; the Passeig del Born, which today is looked upon as Palma’s Golden Mile, features exclusive Carolina Herrera, Loewe and Louis Vuitton outlets.

Nightlife
Our 4-star hotel in Palma is right on the Promenade, one of the city’s go-to nightlife areas. At sunset, bars and clubs begin to fill up with the best atmosphere for an unforgettable night out.

And if what you’re after’s good cocktails, don’t forget to drink the first one in our Embat Bar, where our staff will delight you with the in-vogue mixes of the moment. We recommend to you our star drink, "Costa Azul": you’ll love it!

Sports
This is the best place for sailing, golfing, running along the Promenade or hiking in the Serra de Tramuntana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As you can see, Palma as a destination has it all, and it’s here to be enjoyed at any time of year. We look forward to welcoming you!
