There is something truly magical about Christmas in Palma. Bathed in winter sunlight this beautiful Mediterranean city sits beside the palm-fringed blue sea and has a festive atmosphere like no other. And the extra bit of magic of course are the Christmas lights!
There are some magnificent hotels to choose from in and around Palma all beautifully decorated to get you in the festive mood. All of the hotels are offering not only their lowest rate when you click the ´Book me a room` button but are offering an exclusive Tonic Bonus for winter as well.
Palma has fantastic shopping. Think wonderful food markets, chic boulevards, stylish shops with the latest designs and fashions interspersed with traditional Mallorcan artisans and bodegas.
All shops close for one day on Christmas Day (although you may find the odd local food store open) but by 26th December it is is pretty much business as usual. The opening hours in Palma are long so, if you enjoy a good mooch, you won’t be disappointed.
Festivities and Markets:
All traditional weekly markets continue as usual so you can fill your boots with all thing Mallorcan from olives and oranges to figs and turrón. And of course you can visit one of the many Christmas Markets in Palma and around the island. There are carol services and concerts and of course on 5th January there are the parades celebrating the arrival of `The Three Kings´.
You will find plenty of places eat around the old Sa Llonja area and the Santa Catalina neighbourhood and of course all the hotels restaurants are open, many of whom offer a special Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or New Year´s Eve Gala Dinner, such as the Hotel Sant Francesc, Hotel Gran Son Net, The Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort or an A la Carte menu at Hotel Portixol.
