Things to do near our beach club in Palma
Located on the small peninsula of Cala Estancia, a few minutes from Palma de Mallorca, the area surrounding Purobeach Palma offers endless possibilities, many of them designed to help you enjoy the glorious setting of our Mediterranean island. Sea, nature and sport are just some of the options on offer a few metres away from our beach club in Palma.
Walking around Es Carnatge
Es Carnatge is a natural coastal area that is ideal for walking and connects Cala Estància to Cala Gamba. Classified as both a geological and a nature reserve and located right next to the sea, it is home to various small sandy coves. The walk boasts a range of vantage points overlooking the sea, the remains of ancient sandstone quarries and historical defensive structures, as well as a stunning view of the Bay of Palma. Wildlife is another striking feature of the walk; seabirds, various species of indigenous plant, banks of Neptune grass and rocks carved by the water and the saltpetre are all in evidence. The sunsets are spectacular and attract bohemians, musicians, artists as well as yoga aficionados. A magical little enclave encapsulating the Mediterranean spirit a few minutes away from the city.
Savour some boat trips and immerse yourself in aquatic sports
Next to the ports at Can Pastilla and Cala Gamba you’ll find various stalls where you can hire a boat or take the plunge with water sports. There’s also the chance to enjoy a wide range of other sea-related activities. These include guided boat trips that take you in search of the Bay of Palma’s finest beaches. There are many companies hiring out small boats not requiring a licence, as well as larger craft that do need a licence. There is also a variety of training schools in the area offering courses in such sports as surfing, windsurfing, paddle surfing and kayaking, and you can also hire the equipment you need to do these sports on your own. If you already have your own vessel and are spending the day at Purobeach, come and get a suggestion for a maritime excursion and tie up at the sailing club located just a few metres from our beach club in Palma.
Explore Palma’s historic centre and its architectural gems
The city of Palma was founded by the Romans, who arrived on the island in the 2nd century BC, and was later conquered by the Arabs, under whom it flourished. The turbulent history of Palma, and of the whole island, is reflected principally in the striking buildings that are tucked away in this jewel by the sea. Gothic structures, such as the cathedral (“La Seu”) and La Lonja rub shoulders with the outstanding examples of modernism to be found in abundance around the Plaza Mayor, such as the buildings known as Casayas and Es Forn des Teatre. Lose yourself amid the narrow streets and inhale the bohemian air that lends such a special character to the city. If you’re looking for a very special memento, you should take a look at the exclusive shops of the Sant Nicolau district, which extends from the Plaza Mayor and the La Lonja area, taking in the avenues of Jaime III and Paseo del Borne: two impressive thoroughfares flanked by majestic trees where purveyors of luxury and famous brands line up like the pearls in a precious necklace. The finest panoramic views over the bay, the city and even the interior of the island are to be had from Castell Bellver, which presides over a hill to the west of Palma.
Take to the skies to discover a new view of Palma and the south of Mallorca
For more intrepid adventurers the best way of exploring the area surrounding our beach club in Palma is a helicopter trip. Viewing all the architectural charms of the old town and the natural highlights – from hidden coves, set against infinite backdrops of blue, turquoise, sky and navy-blue shadows, to the imposing mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana stretching out into the distance – from a perspective that very few people are able to enjoy, undoubtedly makes for a unique and unforgettable experience.
