Quieter than it’s more-famous neighbour Magaluf, yet with enough nightlife to satisfy partygoers, Palma Nova has cemented its position as a firm favourite town on the Spanish Balearic island of Majorca, to have a great time with families and fun-seekers alike. You’ll find spectacular, sun-bleached beaches, a superb selection of bars and restaurants, and some outstanding attractions.
While you’re enjoying your package holiday to Palma Nova, be sure to leave some time to check out the Caves of Drach and the natural beauty of La Reserva Puig Galatzo. With the price of the flight, food and drink and even the cost of air transfers all consolidated into one fee, package holidays to Palma Nova are an excellent way of ensuring that your break doesn’t blow the budget.
Things to do
While it would be all too easy to spend your Palma Nova holidays on one of the three stunning beaches, there are plenty of things to get up to once your tan is topped. The 'Nit de Foc’ (Night of Fire) is held in late June and marks the night before the Feast of St John and features devils, demons, flaming torches, and fireworks. Plan a day trip to watch the sharks in Palma’s acclaimed aquarium, or visit nearby Katmandu Park for a day of water-based fun. In the evenings, grab dinner in the town centre and head to a bar, or walk along the seafront to enjoy the famous clubs of Magaluf.
Fun for families
Palma Nova is a lively resort and appeals to families that are looking for lively holiday with a real party atmosphere. There are three impressive beaches that have gorgeous, golden sands with plenty of space for you to relax whilst the kids build sandcastles. For a more sporty activity, all of you can have hours of fun at the Golf Fantasia, with three 18-hole crazy golf courses. And don’t forget with Magaluf close by you’ll also have all the fun of the waterparks, theme parks and live action shows. You won’t be bored in Palma Nova.
After a day jam-packed with activities, you’ve got a choice of laid-back beachfront bars or family-friendly evenings. Palma Nova has got a great selection of bars and discos playing anything from pop hits to those classics that everyone knows the words to. Many places also have karaoke nights and cabaret singers where you’re encouraged to join in. There’s plenty going on in Palma Nova, but there’s a more casual and easy-going atmosphere than its neighbour resort Magaluf.
Although two separate resorts, Palma Nova and Magaluf seem to merge into one during the summer months. No one is really sure where one ends and the other begins, but as soon as you see the bright lights and hear the music you’ll know you’ve found the Magaluf strip; the place for clubbing and all-night parties. Staying in Palma Nova is ideal if you want to make the most of lively Magaluf but still want to feel the relaxed vibe of being on holiday.
