Home to the Balearic Island’s capital, the Bay of Palma lies in the south-west of Mallorca. It’s framed by Cape Cala Figuera and the Serra de Na Burguesa, which forms part of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains. Lively Mediterranean beach resorts and fishing villages line the shores.
Join a boat cruise to explore the Bay of Palma from the water alongside traditional fishing vessels and luxury yachts. Admire one of the oldest operating lighthouses in the world, the Faro de Portopí, and the Royal Palace of La Almudaina, a summer residence of the Spanish royal family.
Hugging the Bay of Palma are several beach resorts, including Palma Nova with its sun-drenched stretch of sand. Bars and cafes line the waterfront of bustling Magaluf, which is renowned for its pulsing nightlife, while the palm-lined sands of Cala Major are popular with families.
Palma de Mallorca Airport lies on the edge of the Bay of Palma and has seasonal flights to destinations across Europe and North Africa. Buses connect from Palma to beach resorts around the Bay of Palma and boats can be rented to explore the area from the water.
