Palma Solo Holiday Tips

Travelling solo can be a daunting prospect, with concerns over whether you'll meet like-minded people or find enough activities to fill up your time. In Palma, however, with its crystal clear waters and rich cultural heritage, you could easily spend weeks on your own in this charming capital city.

At Holiday Extras, with our airport transfers we make sure that travelling to your required destination in safety and comfort is one thing you won't have to worry about.

Here are some of our top tips for making the most out of your solo trip.

Explore the sights

Being on your own has the advantage of not having to stick to anyone else's schedule, which means you can take your time to appreciate the fantastic ancient sights that Palma has to offer. A must-see is the Gothic Roman cathedral and the nearby Royal Palace, both part of the Old Town, which in itself you can enjoy by ambling through its mazy streets and admiring the architecture.

Relax on the beach

Whether you fancy people watching on the busy Cala Mayor, or admiring the cliff facing surroundings of the secluded Cala Llombards, Palma's beaches are not to be missed. Make sure you stock up on books and podcasts to provide entertainment as you lie back on the sun lounger.

Go on an excursion

A great way to meet other solo travellers is by booking yourself onto some day trips, and Palma offers a range to suit whatever your interests. You could take a vintage train through the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, or taste some of Mallorca's homemade wines and learn about the winemaking process on a winery tour.

Get active

You can have great fun while staying fit on a solo holiday by taking part in a variety of activities in and around the capital. There are plenty of watersports to enjoy, including snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding and pedalos, and those looking for something more adventurous might fancy canyoning in the mountains.
