Palma in summer

Palma: The Best Summer Panorama

The Balearic capital boasts mild temperatures all year round; however, with the arrival of summer, people want more than ever to enjoy the city, get lost in its streets, and explore the various cultural routes it offers.


The summer weather brings with it a lot of energy, and Palma is the perfect place to let off some of that steam.  We invite you to cycle through the majestic landscapes, practice your swing at one of the five golf courses in the city, run freely along its beaches, and enjoy the sea while participating in activities like water skiing, windsurfing, or kayaking.


Art and culture also flourish at this time of year and, furthermore, they are part and parcel of Palma's charm.  Enjoy culture, great views, and historical monuments ranging from the Mallorca Cathedral to the Bellver Castle – all unique and spectacular places that are open to those who want to enjoy Palma from new perspectives. This season brings with it new experiences – and you are sure to find those new experiences as you stroll along Palma's Golden Mile, which has a variety of cafeterias, restaurants, and shops that range from large firms to small, traditional stores where you can not only shop but also learn about the past and about local curiosities.


When temperatures rise in summer, it’s the ideal time to visit Palma and its Bay –the second largest in Spain–, which features vast beaches with white sand that invite you to relax in the sun and do sports while enjoying the fresh waters.


Are you familiar with Cabrera Island? Just 20 minutes from Palma is one of the area's most fascinating places: a maritime/terrestrial natural park that is classified as a Special Protection Area for Birds (SPA) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) where you can experience unforgettable moments while swimming in the Island's crystal clear waters, exploring its large caves or watching the sea birds.

It is a sustainable, exceptional place in the Mediterranean for nature tourism lovers. It’s the ideal stop for an original and fun day out with your partner, friends, or family.


The possibilities in Palma are almost infinite: you are able to explore its beaches, admire natural wonders, visit monuments, and enjoy sport all in one place.


As for art and events, this summer Palma will host countless special and unique events. Of these, we must highlight the important sailing competitions, such as, the Copa del Rey-Mapfre, concerts and shows of many different styles, that will cater for everyone’s taste.


Be sure not to miss any of the activities and destinations that Palma has to offer you. The city is waiting for you with open arms, ready to show you new and unforgettable experiences that can only be enjoyed in the Balearic capital.
