Palma (officially known as Palma de Mallorca) is the capital and largest city of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands in Spain. It is situated on the south coast of Mallorca on the Bay of Palma.
The city and island are steeped in history and architecture since its roman foundation, so with the old city and the endless beeches, a vibrant food scene, culture and nightlife as well a golf, cycling and of course the second-largest bay in Europe for water sports, you are bound to find something for everyone. During August you can expect temperature highs to reach 38ºC degrees and lows of 16ºC. So ensure you pack the sun cream!
Getting to Palma
Getting to Palma will for most be a single direct flight to PMI (Palma de Mallorca Airport), as during summer season most countries offer daily flight so you can expect the airport to be busy for arrivals and departures.
Your transfer option from the airport are:
- Taxi (€35 to 40)
- Bus (€5) or
- pre-booked transfer (circa €50 for a car with 3 persons, €99 for a minibus)
As august is towards the end of the peak season we recommend you consider pre-booking your transfer in advance of your arrival.
