Located less than 2 km from the runway of the Son Sant Joan International Airport in Mallorca, Playa de Palma is one of the best beaches to visit during your stay on the Balearic Islands. This 6 km long stretch of Majorca's central south coast runs from C'an Pastilla in the west, around the Bay of Palma, to El Arenal in the east. Get to your hotel or straight to the beach in no time at all from the airport in a Majorca car hire.
The three resorts of C'an Pastilla, Playa de Palma, and El Arenal are fluidly connected. They are joined by a wide pedestrian promenade which is completely flat and ideal for people with walking difficulties or families with young children in strollers. If you play too hard at the beach and would prefer not to walk between the resorts there is a popular Mini Train which runs along the Promenade.
During the summer months the is very popular with German tourists between 18 and 30 who frequent the many beach night clubs and bars. If you are planning to travel with your family you can save money and avoid the partiers nearly entirely by visiting outside of the peak season.
One definitely notable feature of this stretch of coastline, which I'm sure you have wished for but could not find on several other beaches, are the 15 or so "Balnearios" which run the full length of the resort. The Balnearios are small beach huts equipped with toilets, showers, and a kiosk selling cold drinks and snacks.
