Paseo Maritimo is the name of Palma’s beautiful harbour promenade, which runs parallel to the sea shore. Many tourists but also locals love to stroll, cycle, walk, jog or inline skate along the cycle path. A walk is always a wonderful experience. The palm-lined path takes you along numerous historic buildings and the hundreds of boats, yachts and cruise ships. In the evening, you can enjoy spectacular sunsets in a picturesque setting. Every spring, the Palma International Boat Show takes place in the harbour, where yachts are offered for sale and rent and numerous events take place around it. If you start your walk from Porto Pi, you will pass the famous Tito’s nightclub, whose history goes back to the 1920s, Palma’s Auditorium, which always offers a colourful programme of entertainment and concerts, to the trendy neighbourhood of Santa Catalina, which really comes alive in the evenings.
In the evening, when the bars and clubs open, the Paseo Maritimo really gets going. Southern rhythms, electro music, pop and rock; along the promenade you will hear a colourful mixture of different music styles. Very popular with locals is the Garrito Cafe at the harbour of Can Barbara at the western end. Live music and always a good atmosphere can be found at the Shamrock. The Boathouse opposite the auditorium offers plenty of parking and a relaxed atmosphere indoors and out for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or just a sundowner in the evening. At El Pesquero restaurant you can enjoy the best fish & seafood with a beautiful view of the harbour. The popular Can Eduardo fish restaurant is always worth a visit.
LEISURE & SPORT
The Paseo Maritimo is ideal for relaxed walking, cycling or inline skating. In Palma you will find several rental stations where you can rent a bike or an e-bike. Inline skates are available at the Roll&Roll shop on Avenida Argentina. Take a break and treat yourself to an ice cream or a cafe con leche in one of the many bars and restaurants. The cathedral, Palma’s famous landmark, which attracts numerous visitors every year, is also just a few minutes away, as are the magnificent surroundings of La Seu, the Parc de la Mar and the Plaza Reina with its many fine luxury boutiques. The old town of Palma is a highlight of the capital, with several magnificent palaces lined up next to each other. A typical characteristic of the old town is the multitude of alleys, most of which are only connected by stairs. The hub of this part of Palma is the Placa Major, whose cafés are always bustling with people. The two most popular passages - Passeig de la Rambla and Passeig d’es Born - offer a wide range of cafés, restaurants and shops.
The Paseo Maritimo is the approx. 4 km long section in Palma’s city centre starting from the Porto Pi shopping centre to the former fishing village of Portixol. Coming from the airport, the motorway merges directly into the harbour road and passes Palma’s landmark - the cathedral. At the other end, at the Porto Pi centre, you come directly onto the motorway, which leads to the southwest to Port Andratx.
