Sun, sea and Aperol Spritz; check, check and check. But wait, there’s more to Palma – so much more. The capital of the Balearics is a perfect city-break destination, with its combination of stunning architecture, fashion-forward boutiques and its multitude of bars and clubs for when the sun goes down. Plus, for a small island, Majorca’s vibrant dining scene punches well above its weight, with an abundance of mouthwatering tapas, and cutting-edge international cuisine.

So where to begin? Maybe by checking out Anima Beach Club where you can grab a bite without even having to brush the sand off your toes. Located in a natural enclave in the heart of Palma, this beachfront spot serves up tasty Mediterranean food; think lots and lots of fresh fish. You can also lounge about on a sunbed, sip a cocktail or dance to resident DJs as you enjoy a 360-degree sunset.

If you are after truly local flavours, 5illes Mallorca, a chain of three restaurants in Colonia de Sant Jordi, follows a zero-kilometre philosophy by sourcing ingredients from nearby markets and fishermen. EAT&DRINK offers exceptional tapas with a Mediterranean twist, PORT serves delicious sushi, kebabs, and homemade burgers, and BEACH&SUNSET is a gorgeous spot for an aperitivo with wonderful views of white sands, clear blue waters, and the glimmering light of those perfect Palmesan summer sunsets.

Check out the panoramic views from Sky Nudos Roof Terrace, where you can sink your chopsticks into mouth-watering sushi, enjoy an Aperol Spritz and look out over Palma’s iconic harbour. The rooftop terrace is perched on top of Mar de Nudos, a classy eatery serving up a fusion of Japanese and Mediterranean flavours, culminating in some pretty spectacular seafood plates. As day turns to night, explore the onsite Nudos Lounge for banging tunes from resident DJs and live musicians.

Siso Beach, an avant-garde space where the sea, the sun and gastronomy come together to offer a unique experience for the senses. They have a carefully crafted menu to enjoy throughout the day, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, which you can accompany with an Aperol Spritz and views of the beautiful Son Matias beach.

Now, you’re in Spain, so you should only eat Spanish food, right? Wrong! Ventuno’s Italian aperitivo with an Aperol Spritz is a must-try and genuinely as good as anything you would find in Italy itself. That's why, in this small place located in Santa Catalina, in the centre of Palma de Mallorca, people gather to enjoy Aperol Spritz with friends.
