Stroll down to the Parque del Mar and wander towards the Portixol while you feel the Mediterranean sea on the tips of your toes. Where to eat in Palma? Having lunch at one of the restaurants in this area of Palma will be a good choice.
Afternoon is the perfect time of day to visit the Castillo de Bellver, the only round plant castle in Europe; and the Porto Pi lighthouse, one of the oldest in the world.
Santa Catalina, the most avant-garde part of Palma, is a perfect option for dinner. Here you will find restaurants to suit all tastes. The finishing touch for the day will be a drink in one of the premium cocktail bars located on the Paseo Mallorca or at the Plaza des Mercat.
