Best of Palma
Palma is the capital of Majorca with a population of roughly 525,000 in the urban area. Surprisingly enough that is more than half the whole country’s population. As a popular tourist destination the airport actually handles somewhere in the region of 23.5 million people per annum.
There are plenty of reasons why Palma is a popular destination. For a start, the average high year-round temperature is 21.6°C with peaks of 29.5°C in August. The city is full of locals that understand the English language, and because tourism is the country’s main source of income, the people are very welcoming.
The city of Palma contains something for everyone. The Old City remains untouched by tourists, which means it is ideal for those looking to see Palma as it once was many years ago. In this part of the city, the streets lined with little private museums and galleries.
At the other end of the spectrum, the nightlife in Palma is second to none. In fact, its reputation as a party island is one of the reasons so many people visit there. The Playa de Palma district and Magalluf districts especially are two of the best party regions.
In the city, you will find some of the best shopping facilities in Spain. As the centre for retail in the country there are plenty of traditional and modern shops standing side by side one another. If you want to shop, then you have to explore Passeig des Born, a street that demonstrates the above perfectly.
