Discover Palma capital

The capital of Palma de Mallorca is the largest city of the Balearic Island and it attracts millions of tourists, mainly from UK (Magaluf) and Germany (S’Arenal). The south part is more commercial with lively nightlife, while the north one brings picturesque landscapes. Even if you prefer the north part, it is a must to discover Palma capital, as the island is relatively small.

From Can Pastilla to Palma you can either go by bus for 1,50 euro, 50 minutes or take a cab like we firstly did,  but paying 20 times more and yeah, lasting 15 minutes. The capital has everything from many old narrow streets winding towards Bellver Castle (14th century) and Royal Palace of La Almudaina to the fancy street Passeig des Born (very similar to Las Ramblas in Barcelona) which is now known as the Golden Mile hosting shops such as: Louis Vuitton, Mulbery, Hugo Boss, etc. The most famous landmark of the city today is  one of one of Europe’s tallest Gothic structure the Cathedral La Seu,  located to one side of the harbour and overlooks the seaside promenade.

Palma has the benefits of both a cosmopolitan city and an amazing seafront location, with a wide choice of fine property types and prices.

Summer in late October

Turkey, Cyprus, Malta, Portugal, Greece, Tunisia and Spain are the European countries with a perfect beach climate even in October. This time, we risked and chose Palma de Mallorca in the wettest month- October as we were dreaming for a long time to visit the Balearic Island. Palma de Mallorca is the largest island in Spain and it’s full of…PALMS!

As I am unemployed, everyday feels like holiday to me (a more stressful one,though) but my boyfriend and I needed to break the distance for a while and relax in a warm place.  Summer never dies, as long as you have money and the willingness to travel. We got used to book our holidays on off season as there are numerous advantages:

-lower prices: You are able to enjoy super fine hotels and save between 30-40% on your accommodation costs. For example, we chose Java Hotel where we paid 102 euros/ night for half board instead of 150 euros during on season.  Everything met and exceeded our expectations there: friendly staff, delicious & various food,perfect location, modern furniture. The hotel is situated close by a wide promenade of 10 km to the resort of Arenal in the east.  If you don’t fancy to walk between the 2 resorts, there’s a popular mini train which runs along the promenade.

-fewer crowds

-pleasant weather

– local tourist industry still ready to please and entertain.

Along with few disadvantages :

-seniors everywhere

-few places closed

-uncertain weather

Anyway, stay tuned to discover more of the island in the next posts!
