Stunning postcard-perfect views and crystal blue waters paint the perfect backdrop for the city of Palma, Spain. Surrounded by the pristine waters of the Balearic Sea, this history-rich, island city gives both history buffs and beach lovers alike the chance to bask in the beauty of Spain's Mediterranean lifestyle and climate. 

Spend your days lounging on the sun-drenched beaches, taking in the architectural beauty of Palma Cathedral Le Seu, or the mystical ambiance of the Cavern of the Dragon. Whether you're coming to celebrate a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, or simply to get away from the daily grind, our vacation rentals in Palma offer travelers of all sorts the perfect spot to unwind in style.

Where is Palma?

Nestled on the southwest coast of Spain's Mallorca Island, you'll be a short 160-mile boat ride from the coast of Jávea on the mainland, and 20 miles from the charming city of Inca. Just east of mainland Spain, this small, picturesque city gives visitors the chance to dive into a vibrant beach culture that boasts a bevy of sun-filled adventures, and historical points of interest around every corner. 

Things to Do in Palma

Take a day to simply unwind on the beaches of Palma. Dive into the scene at Ca'n Pere Antoni Beach for a sun-soaked day of splashing in the tropical waters or making new friends along the beach. If you're looking for a place to chill out a bit with more of a laid-back scene, head over to Ciutat Jardí Beach for a peaceful, local vibe.

The stunning Gothic architecture and imposing size of the Le Seu Cathedral has roots dating all the way back to 1229. Officially completed in 1601, this majestic Roman Catholic cathedral dominates the Cathedral Area and acts as a figure-piece, framing the city's beauty in the ancient craft and style. 

Book a spot on a guided tour of the mystic Cavern of the Dragon. These limestone caves look like a vision out of a fairytale, with stalactites clinging to the prehistoric ceiling, as the aqua-blue waters reflect their design. The perfect spot for a romantic moment, the lights from the charming boats create an ethereal picture of enchantment. Return to your vacation rental to end the night in comfort and privacy.

Try something new and exciting by booking a lesson with Flyboard Mallorca. Fly through the air as the water pushes you tens of feet above the surface of the ocean. Reserve a jet ski to skip across the waves and feel the wind whip through your hair, or rent a stand-up paddleboard to get some exercise while you take in the scenic shores. 

With a wide array of historical sites and local attractions nearby like the Bellver Castle, Palma Aquarium, and the hiking destination of Serre de Tramuntana, our Palma vacation rentals offer a seemingly endless list of possibilities for memory-making fun. 

Day Trips from Palma 

Wake up early on a Thursday and make a quick trip through the picturesque countryside to visit the weekly farmers market in Inca. Located close to Placa d’Espanya, you'll be able to wander through the unique merchants selling everything from fresh local produce to one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. This is the perfect spot to find a signature memento to remember your trip by. 

Located on the northeastern part of Mallorca, the popular destination of Alcúdia is a must-visit for all art lovers. Take in the contemporary artwork at La Fundación Yannick y Ben Jakober: Museu Sa Bassa Blanca. Be sure to wander through the rose garden before taking the family for a bit of water-infused fun at the Hidropark. 

Come dig your toes in the sand as the gentle Mediterranean waves crash in the distance, and bask in the beauty of the history-rich culture when you book a stay at one of our lovely vacation rentals in Palma.
