The boats glisten as they bob up and down in the port, an impressive sight to behold on a sunny winter's morning in Palma Majorca. Many of the locals jog along the waterside - an impressive route taking in the huge fortress like buildings that look down on the port and the bluest of sea to the right.
Palma has long been known to me as a typical resort holiday relaxing on the beach (or by the poolside) by day and coming alive by night with the numerous bars and entertainment. But, Palma has so much more! Great authentic cuisine, idyllic cafes and restaurants to sample the very best local food, such as fresh fish from the market, and of course enough history and culture to keep you amused for hours.
One tip, wear comfortable shoes as you stroll down the many streets - with so many sights and places of interest you certainly cover some ground! Luckily for the tourist there are so many cafes to choose from, you can sit back, relax and simply watch the world go by...
Now is a great time to visit - out of peak season, pleasant climate, cheaper accommodation, and if you're struggling for inspiration for seeing the new year in why not sample it the Spanish way? The city of Palma comes alive on New Year's Eve with fireworks and street parties at the Festa de l´estendard!
You can fly to Palma Majorca from Leeds Bradford throughout the winter from £29.99 one-way inc charges! What are you waiting for? Book now!
