Together with its neighbour Magalluf, the resort of Palma Nova on the south west coast of Mallorca makes up the most popular holiday area on the island. Situated a few miles west of the capital Palma, and the Son Sant Joan International Airport, most visitors to Palma Nova come on package tours from Britain, intent on enjoying a lively, fun-in-the-sun holiday.
The purpose-built resort offers all you need and more, from lovely beaches to wild nightlife. The three sandy beaches of the holiday strip, Es Carregador, Playa de Palma Nova and Son Maties, are backed by a long promenade and have blue Flag status.
Palma Nova is separated from Europe’s famed party capital Magalluf, by a rocky headland, but the resorts are basically merged into single conglomerate of hotels and apartments offering a range of accommodation from budget self-catering to luxury-serviced suites. Palma Nova is known as the quieter section of this hedonistic seaside development, and therefore ideal for families.
