Beaches near Palma

There are several good, though usually crowded, beaches accessible by bus from Palma. El Arenal, seven miles (11km) to the south-east of the city, attracts many German visitors to its waterfront restaurants, bars and hotels. The long beach boasts white sands and turquoise water. Palma Nova and Illetes, six miles (10km) to the south-west, are smaller but equally popular beaches. On the road to Palma Nova is Marineland, offering dolphin, sea lion and parrot shows, as well as Polynesian pearl-diving demonstrations. Other beaches include Portixol, El Molinar, Coll d'En Rebassa and Can Pastilla. The most popular beach on the entire island of Mallorca, Es Trenc, on the south-east coast between Cap de Salinas and Cap Blanc, can be reached by bus from the Plaza Espanya in Palma. The local tourist office distributes an information leaflet on 40 beaches in the Palma area.
