Rent a villa or apartment in Majorca's capital, Palma
Palma de Majorca with its Mediterranean climate is a wonderful backdrop for a holiday. The hot summers, amazing sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and vibrant promenades means it offers something for everyone. It's also accessible: the main airport, Palma de Majorca airport, is 8km away from Palma itself and has direct flights to the UK and Europe's major cities. At Clickstay we have wonderful holiday rentals - luxurious properties with their own pools in and near the heart of Palma.
Situated on the south coast of Majorca, Palma, otherwise known as Palma de Majorca, is the island’s lively capital, with half of the population residing in the city. Originally settled by the Romans, this western Mediterranean city expanded under Moorish occupation for three hundred years up until the 13th century before being reconquered by James I of Aragon - one of Spain’s most famous kings. Palma offers the perfect blend of culture, sandy beaches, clear seas and a vibrant nightlife – not to mention a historic and beautiful setting!
The capital boasts some lovely sandy beaches: Portixol beach, Cala Major and Illetas. If you’re after a quiet beach then consider the nearby fishing village of Portixol, 3km away from the city centre. But if you’re after people watching, go to Playa de Palma, a wide sandy beach within walking distance of La Seu, Palma’s historic cathedral. Renting a property in Palma’s historic centre gives you easy access to the city's main attractions; trendy restaurants, intimate cafés and an enormous harbour stretching from the front of the cathedral, bordering to the west. If food and nightlife are your thing then explore the bars and restaurants in Palma’s city centre. Try Sadrassana restaurant, Adrian Quetglas, or Bar Espana for good local food at affordable prices.
Cathedral La Seu is a striking 14th Century piece of historic architecture and must-see for culture vultures. Not to be missed is Bellver Castle and fortress with its fairytale-like structure. Surrounded by pine woods it is now a museum open to the public. An extraordinary museum that perfectly mirrors an amazing history of Palma city is within well-preserved 14th Century royal castle, Bellver castle. Visiting this stunning monument overlooking the city will give you something to talk about with your family and friends.
Palma's cyclist and pedestrian-friendly promenade is ideal for afternoon and evening strolls. Follow the cycle path and discover the city's man-made, urban beach, Can Pere Antoni, just a 15 minute walk from the cathedral. Explore the region's hotspots and hop-off attractions through an open top bus tour. Young families might appreciate a trip to Palma Aquarium, a marine park with thousands of sea creatures and over 700 species. Palma Aquarium is an amazing marine park where you can dive with sharks and, in the summer, swim in the stingray tank in the Mediterranean Gardens. Children can camp out in front of the Big Blue shark tank as well as celebrating their birthdays pirate themed parties. Palma Aquarium offers an interesting insight into the underwater world. For peace and quiet, rent a property with a private pool outside the centre for a perfect base to explore the sights.
Enjoy a relaxing holiday by staying in one of our amazing villas in Palma with a private pool. Your own villa makes the perfect base to explore the local area and, after a long day on the beach or sightseeing in Palma, you can head back to your villa and have a refreshing swim in your own pool.
