Discover Palma de Mallorca bay Spain

Palma Bay represents a typical example of 'baléarisation', a French synonym for excessive urbanisation along the coastline. Hotels and rent-controlled apartment blocks succeed one another from El Arenal to Can Pastille (near the airport) via Playa de Palma, where the bay is very popular with German tourists. That being said, the endless seaside promenade is pleasant and well laid-out. It is closed off to cars, which makes it ideal for strolling around on foot, by bike or in a calash. It is scattered with bars, boutiques and restaurants. Palmaès' city centre, with its port and marina, lies in the middle of the bay, where you can see its magnificent Gothic cathedral, a genuine work of art! The eastern side of the bay is, again, a succession of seaside resorts: Cala Major, Illetes, Portal Nous, Palmanova and Magaluf, with the latter being almost exclusively frequented by a clientele of British revellers and marred by large buildings.

    Magaluf

    This seaside resort in the east of the Bay of Palma is mostly frequented by a clientele of British revellers and is not one of the prettiest sites due to the large buildings.
