The bustling resort of Palma Nova has been a fan-favourite since it was built in the 1960's. The purpose-built resort is within reach of Majorca's capital of Palma and right next door to Magaluf's frantic party scene. Its trio of beaches are picturesque and perfect for relaxing on a hot summer's day. You'll find a host of watersports and boat excursions right on the beach and nice collection of restaurants in town.

Great For

Laid-back Atmosphere: Palma Nova doesn't share its neighbour's wild attitude, and offers a more low-key alternative to Magaluf's over-the-top excitement. There is still plenty of fun in the sun to be had between its beautiful Blue Flag beaches, host of watersports and its handful of parks and attractions. Palma Nova has everything you need for a relaxing beach holiday with nothing you don't.
Families: The wide-range of accommodation choices, including many low-cost holiday deals and calm swimming beaches lead thousands of families here each year. Palma Nova is an exceptional resort town that caters to all the needs and desires of families with young children.
Best time to visit: High Season: June-September. Most of the resort is closed in November.
