Palma Beach

Palma's in-town strand, and the island's most popular.

Perhaps Palma's busiest beach, thanks to its location running along the tourist zone right in the centre of town. Even if you later decide to go off exploring more secluded and hidden coves and corners of the island, you should visit this huge strand at least once. More than 4 kilometres (2½ miles) long, it borders the Passeig Marítim and Palma port, and is lined with a ton of bars and cafés open day and night, when it turns into one of the city's top nightlife centres. The area as a whole is referred to as El Arenal (Spanish for "sandy spot," appropriately enough).
