PALMA IN WINTER

by lawstudentd

Hi to everyone,

Have seen a cheap Ryanair flight to Palma and wondered whether it is worth a visit (2 nights) in Winter (as obviously everyone seems to think of it as a summer resort).

Is everything open ie, shops, cafes, and most importantly public transport? Will there be many people around or will it feel a bit empty and desolate.

Am thinking of going around the end of March. Is this a good idea?

Thanks, Vanessa

I/we stayed in Palma (in the city, not beach resorts) for an entire winter a few years ago, and as Ranger says, the weather is variable. I wore a light-weight wool coat most of the time. It is a very pleasant place in winter because most of the tourists are gone, yet public transport is operating as normal, and you'll have most of the interesting sites to visit without the summer hordes of package tourists. However, it's too cold to swim, and the (ugly) touristy side of the island on the southeast coast does shut down a bit from a lack of tourists. So, IMO, your best experience would be seeing Palma and the western coast as a cultural experience to its many beautiful historic places. And no, it does not at all feel empty and desolate, but rather a much more authentic Spanish experience. Enjoy!

Can't add much to the excellent answers above.

Palma is a small city of about 400.000 inhabitants, actually the 8th biggest city in Spain.... so definitely not empty and desolate at any time! My advice would be to stay in Palma itself (as you are going just for two nights), allow at least half a day to explore Palma (the cathedral is not to be missed) and another day you can take the scenic old train to Soller:

Be prepared to wear in layers, weather may be warm and pleasant, but it may be still cold and wet.

Thank you for these excellent replies, they contain some very helpful information. I think that Palma sounds rather nice ouf of season and have decided to book the flights.

It would be great if someone could recommend a nice hotel, price around E100 per double room per night close to the major sights of the city and perhaps a nice restaurant etc.

Thanks again for taking the time to reply. This is (very much!!!) appreciated.

Going on my 4th winter break to Palma shortly. It is a delightful city break. Weather can be superb at the end of March - I've been lucky most visits. Stay on the harbour at the Hotel Costa Azul for B & B - wonderful views of the marina and the cathedral and just a short, pleasant walk into the city. It even has a small indoor pool. No 1 bus from the airport stops right outside. Good rates through Octopus or Thomson. Palma has lots of great bars and restaurants and a good atmosphere in the evening. Abaco is a fantastic, if expensive, bar - a must for one cocktail. For day trips suggest train to Soller, maybe bus to Valldemossa or Deya or maybe bus to Puerto Andraix for lunch.

Travel Tips for Palma de Mallorca

Tile...

by Mique

Made this picture somewhere in the city centre.. i think just in one of the streets behind the cathedral. But that is as best an indication of its location as i can give you. But i like it very much and wanted to share it with you. If you find it on any of your own explorations of Palma, drop me a note will you

take the normal train

by tanneddarling

there are 2 train stations in palma de mallorca.

one has only one route and is the start off point for the tourist train to soller

the other is the normal train station (metro like service)

you have to look for this station - there were building works going on when we were there and we had to look for the entrance. you have to go underground to board the train - but the line rises above ground shortly after leaving the station.

you can see quite a lot of mallorca by taking the train. we took it to manacor via inca. it only cost 3.50 for a single ticket (adult)
manacor was a little village and really there wasn´t much to do but walk around. there are a few pearl factories nearby - and there are more things open in the summer - but when we went (in november) it was pretty much deserted.

we took the bus back to palma (which was MUCH QUICKER) and went direct via the motorway. it was more expensive and was just over 5 euros each. it arrives at the bus station - which is just beside the train station that we set off from.

we travelled in a sort of triangle and managed to see a lot of the INSIDE of the island in a few hours.

Yellow and red buses, they take U everywhere

by russian_yaz

TIB, the local bus agency will take U everyhwhere on the island. This yellow and red buses are comfortable enough for the island. The longest ride is only 75 km so it will take no moew than half an hour to get there. The prices ranges from one euro to 10 euros, depending on where U're heading. As U can see in the pic, U can even put your bicicles on the bus, on the same place of the bagagge. This is only permisible if there is not enough bagagge to fill this place.

The buses departats each day, around two hours each. Check previously the schedules on the web site or just go to the bus station to see the shedules.

Cala Illetes: Quiet and sunny beach

by cadiana88

Cala Illetes beach is very close to the center of the city, 9 kilometers south. You arrive there catching a bus. There is a restaurant managed by very friendly Argentine boys!! The people in the beach are mostly Germans. The water is clean and warm.

save your cash

by tanneddarling

we decided not to pay to go into the cathedral

we had a look around the building and enjoyed the views from the balcon type area towards the sea instead (as we had already visited soooo many historic buildings)

the queue was quite long to get in - and you have to buy a ticket in one place and the entrance is in another

its four euros per person to get in
