The beach of Palma is one of the most well-known beaches of Palma de Mallorca. It is located within walking distance of downtown and is one of the most well-kept and best communicated beaches throughout the island; therefore it has also become one of the most precious ones. It is divided into the beach of Palma, Can Pastilla and El Arenal.
A little further away from the city you will also find some very interesting bays to rest in.
The beach is very close to the city and to the airport, and nearby is also a green area at the heart of the beach where you can walk, go bike or horse riding, enjoying the forests which surround the area.
The beach of Palma is covered with fine white sand, is 6 kilometers long and has a width of 40 meters. It is a real paradise that provides everything necessary for tourism, and is therefore worthy of the EUs Blue Flag. The water can be enjoyed in each season given the wonderful temperatures on the Balearic Islands all year round.
There is also no scope for boredom. You can enjoy all kind of water sports (windsurfing, sailing, etc) , the weekly street market, visiting Palma in the tourist train, not to mention the wide range of discotheques and clubs, which animate the warm nights of the island. Most of the nightlife is found in La Lonja, the most popular area.
