Palma invites you to get lost in its narrow streets in the urban center and be surprised by its Roman, Muslim, Jewish and Christian legacy, all with the Cathedral of Mallorca as a lookout. It also invites you to visit its museums and art galleries or let yourself be enveloped by its culinary delights, with ensaimadas and sobrassada as protagonists. Likewise, being bathed by the Mediterranean offers the possibility of enjoying dips in the sea and fun in the sand.  

In addition to having eight bathing areas with crystalline waters in a more natural and wild environment, the coast of the Balearic capital has five urban beaches with all kinds of services and, for the most part, easily accessible on foot, by bicycle, public transport public or car from the city center. From east to west, they are as follows:

Playa de Palma
On the east coast of the capital is Playa de Palma, an immense sandy area about six kilometers long that runs from Can Pastilla to S'Arenal. It has fine white sand and clear waters with little waves, making it ideal for families; In addition, it has a wide range of water sports such as surfing, paddle-surfing or kayaking. 
It is a busy and lively paradise next to the promenade with all the services, such as sunbed and umbrella rental, restaurants and a lively nightlife. A perfect option to combine beach relaxation and urban comfort.

Can Pere Antoni Beach
Located just two kilometers from the center of the capital, Can Pere Antoni beach is the perfect place to disconnect and cool off on a hot summer afternoon in Palma, with exclusive views of the Cathedral. It can be reached on foot or by cycling along the bike paths that stretch along the promenade. 
It offers a relaxed atmosphere and is popular with locals looking for a quiet place to spend the day, take a dip, play volleyball or stand up paddle boarding. Near Can Pere Antoni are the Real Club Náutico de Palma and the port.
