Welcome to Palma Nova, a beautiful resort town on the Spanish island of Mallorca!

Palma Nova is home to some of the best beaches in Mallorca, so make sure to spend some time lounging on the sand and swimming in the Mediterranean Sea.

If you’re looking for a more active vacation, there are plenty of water sports to try, from windsurfing to paddleboarding.

When the sun goes down, Palma Nova comes alive with its vibrant nightlife.

There are bars and clubs to suit every taste, so you’re sure to find somewhere to dance the night away.

So what are you waiting for? Start planning your Palma Nova getaway today!

Where Is Palma Nova?

Palma Nova is situated approximately 14KM from Palma de Majorca and sits adjacent to the hugely popular Magaluf.

The two resorts are almost indistinguishable from one another, although known to have a younger family orientated atmosphere throughout the day in peak season.

What Is A Palma Nova Holiday Like?

However, don’t expect a peacefully quiet holiday here.

The holiday resort is famous for round the clock party antics invariably fuelled by cheap alcohol from the many bars and clubs in the resort.

The beaches at Palma Nova are some of the prettiest on the island and are well catered for with regards to facilities (i.e. food, drink, toilets, lifeguard, etc).

Please be aware that it is illegal to drink alcohol or bring any kind of glass bottles/containers on the beaches here.

As with its neighbouring Magaluf, Palma Nova goes through a seasonal metamorphosis during the winter months, becoming a favoured holiday destination with older families and the elderly seeking a warmer climate at bargain prices.

How To Get To Palma Nova

Getting to the resort is easy for most on package holidays, as it’s as simple as stepping on the right coach.

For others who prefer to make their own way to the resort, there is a plentiful supply of buses running to the resort from Palma de Mallorca.

Bus lines 102,  104, 105 and 106 buses will take you there. Buses numbered from 100 to 199 cover the Calvia (South West) area of Majorca.
