Beaches in Palma de Mallorca that are a must

A unique beach day on the island

Summer is nearing on the island, so what better plan than enjoying a fun and relaxing day out under the sun at one of its marvellous beaches or exclusive beach clubs. The largest of the Balearic Islands has an infinite number of incredible beaches and coves, but just so you don’t stress out, at Purobeach we’ve decided to prepare a small list of the must-visit beaches in Palma de Mallorca. It can’t get any easier than that!


Playa de Palma

When it comes to beaches in Palma de Mallorca, visiting the famous Playa de Palma, which dominates the bay of the city along with the Cathedral of Palma, is a must.


Playa de Palma is about 10 km long, and is comprised of many different beaches. The main beach is the one found right in the city centre, by the sea promenade, the Paseo Marítimo de Palma. This particular one has been classified as a Blue Flag beach, and is surrounded by many beautiful palm trees that add to the paradisiacal feel.


Playa de Palma is undoubtedly a clear favourite when it comes to beaches in Palma de Mallorca, particularly among families and those who love water sports. However, apart from them, many people love this beach for its centric and privileged location, its beauty and because it’s a major hotspot for exclusive beach clubs and restaurants. Beach time certainly is much better when you enjoy it from a Bali bed, with a fresh cocktail and a few tapas at sunset.


Purobeach Palma

Our beach club Purobeach Palma has become one of the favourite places to enjoy a VIP beach day in Palma de Mallorca, both among residents and worldwide travellers alike.


Known as the city’s “Oasis del Mar”, this beach club is located in a small peninsula with 180º views to the Mediterranean Sea. Let go and unwind at our exclusive terrace, all while enjoying the sun and dancing to the rhythm of the best Puro music, or watching the sun go down with a glass of fresh bubbly. If you prefer an even more relaxing plan, book yourself in for a spa treatment or a yoga or mindfulness session by the sea.


When you fancy a snack, brunch or lunch, the restaurant at Purobeach Palma, which works under its innovative M3 concept, where the cuisines of Miami, Marrakech and Melbourne are key, will be available to you.


To conclude the summer experience in one of the best beaches in Palma de Mallorca, book your sunbed at the beach club and enjoy endless splashes in the pool. The reservation includes a towel and and exquisite tray with water, a smoothie, fresh fruit and after sun.

Illetas beach or Playa de Illetas

The famous Platja de Ses Illetes, in mallorcan, or Playa de Illetas, is one of the most popular ones in the island, and it is no wonder! It is, as many say, a charming beach where we can enjoy fine, white sands and clean, turquoise waters. In fact, the colour of its water is one of the main attractions of the Playa de Illetas, and so many snorkel-lovers love to practice their beloved sport there too. Near the rocks you’ll be able to see many different types of beautiful fish.

Illetas beach, located near the centre of Palma, isn’t excessively big, but it is rather tranquil, charming and pretty. It is an ideal beach to visit as a family, with friends or as a couple too, and you mustn’t worry about being too far away since it’s quite an accessible beach with the necessary services nearby, such as restaurants, mini markets or beach clubs such like the renowned Purobeach Illetas.

Purobeach Illetas

If you think you’ll fall head over heels in love with the beautiful beaches in Palma de Mallorca, this beach club will take things to a whole new level. Purobeach Illetas has become one of the main attractions and hotspots of Illetas and the entire island of Mallorca. It is the ideal beach club to enjoy refreshing signature cocktails with sea views, live music from Puro Music and resident DJs, or the most select cuisine right in the Playa de Illetas. Imagine all that, with a great dose of style and glamour.
