Luxury Palma Holidays

Cobbled streets and cultural cool


Majorca’s vivacious capital is one of the best spots on the island for culture and cuisine. A bit of a nightlife and entertainment hotspot, Palma offers up chic restaurants and laid-back wine bars, particularly around the pretty waterfront. The shopping is something special, too, with big brands and little boutiques jostling for attention on its cobbled streets.

It’s not all glitz and glam, though – Palma’s history makes it a fascinating place for a spot of sightseeing. The city skyline is dominated by the towering Gothic cathedral, Palau de l’Amudaina, and the labyrinthine old town’s cutting-edge galleries and medieval streets are the perfect place to wander and people watch.

When you fancy a breather, stroll along the waterfront Passeig Maritim; it's still home to to-ing and fro-ing fishing boats and bobbing white yachts.

Amie Buxton

Palma’s old town is the perfect place to wander. I love to shop, so I head to the boutiques on Passeig des Born – Palma’s famous shopping street. You can’t miss the Gothic cathedral either – it’s stunning.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Majorca is around 2 hours 15 minutes.

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Palma airport to Palma is approximately 20 minutes.

When to go

Majorca starts warming up for summer around April, when the mercury climbs into the 20s and doesn’t stop until around July, which can top 30°C. You’re looking at around 11 hours of sunshine a day in midsummer, with bath-like sea temperatures. Things won’t cool off until October, which still hovers in the low to mid 20s. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.


Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
