When it comes to holidaying in Majorca, tourists are spoilt for choice. The island’s numerous events and famous nightlife obviously play a big role in what it has to offer, but the beaches, natural landscapes and countryside of Majorca are also one of its highlights for travellers. Choosing an appropriate destination to access both the island’s biggest draws and hidden gems can prove a difficult task, but the small, little known town of Palma Nova can prove to be a surprisingly good choice to do so.

Palma Nova is one of Majorca’s first resorts built exclusively for tourism. A town in Calvia, its location means it’s just a twenty minute journey away from both the island’s capital of Palma and the bustling holiday resort of Magaluf. The latter plays host to some of Majorca’s most famous events and has some of its best bars and clubs, whilst the former is the go-to place for the best high streets and shops. If you’re in Palma, it’s also well worth going to the port town’s Old City, so named because it was constructed during Majorca’s Arab history. As such, it has a feel unlike anywhere else on the island, with its architecture and quietness setting it apart from the rest of the city.

A forty-five minute car journey from Palma Nova will take you to one of Majorca’s less frequented towns. A number of small villages and hamlets with a collective population of only 12,000 make up Soller, a town that serves as a gateway to some of the best countryside on the island. A number of mountains both large and small surround the town and make ideal walks for both experienced and inexperienced hikers. Soller itself is home to several old lighthouses that make for interesting viewing, as well as a number of restaurants, cafes and shops where you can try the local food and purchase souvenirs.

If you’re interested in visiting one or all of these parts of Majorca, then the Don Bigote in Palma Nova is a good choice of hotel. It’s located right in the centre of Palma Nova, where you can easily find transport to the places above, but if you fancied a day of not travelling, it’s also just a short walk from the resort’s beach.
