The famous CAVES OF DRACH are just up the road at Porto Cristo. There is a mile of stunning caverns and an underground lake.

Palma - Open top Double Decker bus tour

Well worth the time. These red buses circulate around Palma in a continual loop. If you stay on the bus it takes around 1 ˝ hours to get back to where you first got on. However, the bus stops at various points of interest, including the medieval village (built in the '60’s! but well worth a visit). You can get off the bus, stay for as long as you want and then get on the next red bus tour that comes along. You can actually use the bus all day to get around. One leaves every half hour but check when you board, very good value.

Retail therapy – Possibly not quite as good value! You will find everything here from the designer label shops and stylish bistros to street markets full of surprises.

The Marina – Palma is home to some of the largest motor yachts in the world.
