Don´t think for a moment that walking is off the agenda if you haven´t hired a car. There are so many walks in Palma that can be enjoyed by taking advantage of the fantastic public transport on the island of Mallorca. Lets start with taking a stroll along the Bay of Palma.
Hop on the No 15 Bus at Placa Espanya (on the opposite side to the train station, next to the large international newspaper kiosk). Your destination is either Ciutat Jardin (an hour´s gentle stroll back into Palma) or Portixol harbour (30 minute stroll back into Palma).
Once off the bus head towards the sea and take in the view.
You should be able to see Palma in the distance with its majestic Cathedral and the walk that lies head of you.
The walking and cycle path run parallel so make sure you stay vigilant as the cyclists and rollerbladers move at a lightning pace!
Be tempted along the way by an array of eateries and coffee shops that now make up this once sleepy fishing area. Sea-facing properties along this magnificent promenade are now eagerly sought after (and its not hard to see why when you walk along here) with some apartments fetching upwards of €1million!
Plans are afoot by developers to extend the delightful old marina area of Es Molinar which you will pass, but strong local opposition has managed to prevent this going ahead so far.
The myriad of benches along the way allows you to sit, take in the view of the cruise ships passing in and out of the Bay of Palma and the sheer size and majesty of the Cathedral from the waterfront as it draws ever nearer to you.
This stroll along the Bay of Palma is just a teaser to start you off! So whatever the Mallorca weather get those runners on and take in some Mediterranean fresh air.
