Palma de Mallorca » Information
Palma de Mallorca is the capital city of the autonomous community of Spain's Balearic Islands and is located on the south coast of the biggest of the islands - Majorca. Majorca is perfectly connected with Europe by regular flights through its airport, Son Sant Joan which is the third largest airport in Spain and during the summer months - one the busiest airports in Europe, serving over 22 million passengers per year. As the major Mallorca city with half of the island's population, Palma is stylish and bustling with life boasting the island's best architectural, historical and cultural sights, restaurants, shops, lively cafe, nightlife and arts scene. Often compared to Barcelona and equally desireable tourist destination, Palma de Mallorca will enchant you with its blend of Arabian, Gothic and Renaissance architecture reflected in the cobbled Medieval quarter with the landmark cathedral and the winding, narrow streets making way to yacht harbours, modern tapas bars and designer boutiques. The best way to explore Palma de Mallorca and the island is the way the locals do it: on your own hire motorcycle or scooter. It is entirely new experience to discover the tiny hidden inlets, sweeping bays and sandy coves of Mallorca, all lapped by the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean on a rental BMW motorbike. Smell the pine forests or the fresh mountain air up the hills of the island or experience the picturesque towns atmosphere firsthand on your hire BMW motorcycle. Hop on a hire motorcycle or scooter and hit the roads of Mallorca which are perfect for motorbike trips almost all year around.
