Palma Nova lies in a horseshoe bay of golden sand beaches. Alongside these beaches is a lively promenade lined with bars and restaurants. This area buzzes with life once the sun goes down.
This resort is quieter and more family friendly than it’s neighbour Magaluf. Here children can paddle in the shallow waters of the bay while adults top up their tans. Many will sip cocktails in the promenade beach bars.
The bay comprises a trio of beaches and a small marina. The more adventurous can enjoy many water sports and activities. Separating the town from Magaluf is the Punta de Sa Porrassa residential area. Here you will find many small coves perfect for snorkelling.
Palma Nova Attractions & Things to do
Behind the main beach next to the marina (picture above), the fun continues. Here you will find one of the best mini golf parks in the Balearic’s. Golf Fantasia boasts three 18 hole mini courses with super features. These include ponds with colourful fish, ducks, bridges, a cave, waterfall and a river.
The courses meander their way through the beautiful park. Here, due to pretty lighting, people can also enjoy the views at night. Some good advice for the golf course is to book through your hotel to save money.
For a bit more of an adrenaline thrill when visiting Palma Nova, head over to Magaluf. Here the young ones can enjoy Aqualand or Western Park aqua park. There is also a professional class go-kart track.

There is also good variety of cafes, bars and restaurants to stop for refreshments. Here you can relax while the world goes by.
