Plane, Train, Tram & Tapas in Palma – by Sharron

Like many people I have flown into Palma to take a holiday on the beautiful island of Majorca.

However, although I have visited Palma, I have never stayed there. Big mistake! What a wonderful city it is – perfect for a short break and just 15/20 minutes transfer from the airport to the city centre.

We flew from Bournemouth Airport early on Friday morning and by noon (Majorca time) we were sipping a chilled glass of cava at our hotel. Friday afternoon was spent wandering the back streets of the old City, marvelling at the wonderful architecture and then strolling along the promenade in the sun whilst admiring the magnificent cathedral that dominates the waterfront.

Dinner that evening was a simple affair enjoying tapas in a small local restaurant at a very reasonable price.

Saturday morning saw us taking the old wooden train up to Soller; a lovely journey through the Tramontana Mountains. Arriving in Soller an hour later, we swapped the train for the tram which then took us down to the coast at Port de Soller. This pretty town is the only resort in the North West corner of Majorca. It has a lovely beach, a marina and numerous bars, restaurants and small shops. There is a good choice of accommodation to suit all budgets.

Soller itself is also well worth spending some time in. On Sunday, we spent the day exploring further in Palma and finished our weekend with a wonderful dinner at one of the cities many highly recommended restaurants.

We flew back to Bournemouth Airport early on Monday morning.
