Types of Holidays

Situated in the popular holiday destination of Majorca, Palma Nova is easy to reach.

As Majorca is only an hour and a half flight from London, it is suited to almost any type of holiday â" from a weekend break to a three-week holiday.

Best Time to Go

Like the UK, Palma Nova has the hottest weather in the summer months from May to September.

In addition to the warmer weather, Palma Nova is drier in summer, with July averaging just 9mm of rain over four days, while September averages 50mm over five days.

Sunshine also varies throughout the year, averaging six hours a day in December and January compared to 13 hours in July, with 12 hours in June and August.

If low cost is more important than the weather though, then the colder months will be cheaper and have fewer tourists.

Sights to See

As Palma City has a rich history and there are a number of historical and cultural sites to visit.

Ten minutes outside of Palma Nova are the Caves of G¨nova. Tourists can have a guided group tour to discover the past of the caves.

Bellver Castle is a Gothic style castle and to this day is one of only a few circular castles to be found in Europe. Although it was for a long time used as a military prison, from the 18th to mid-20th Century, it is now under civilian control and one of the islandâs main tourist attractions.

The Museum of Modern Art is also well worth a visit. Original works of both Picasso and Cezanne are housed here.

The Pirates Adventure Show is an extremely popular attraction for families, featuring acrobatics, swashbuckling pirates, pyrotechnics and even an uncut version in the evening for the adults.

The Palma Nova Western Park theme park is perfect for the family who wants a few thrills, with numerous water slides, wild-west themed attractions and a lazy river which you can float on on an inflatable.
