Palma City Beach (Can Pere Antoni), Palma de Mallorca

Golden sandy beach, the closest beach to Palma
Featured in: Beaches · Updated


The closest beach to Palma is at Ca'n Pere Antoni. This small stretch of golden sandy beach starts just beyond the cathedral. A promenade and cycle path runs along its length but behind these lies the main road that takes you to Palma airport.

Despite its popularity with locals, this beach is very convenient if you are staying in Palma and you are looking for a quick beach stop. The views of Palma Cathedral from here are stunning.

The beach runs for 750 metres and is 30 metres deep. This combined with its proximity to the city centre means it can get very busy during the summer. It holds a Blue Flag award for cleanliness and has toilets and showers and a lifeguard presence. You will find bars and restaurants at the eastern end of the beach.

There is also a public beach at Portixol - this is only about half a kilometre further on and is away from the main road. It also has a great selection of very good quality bars and restaurants.

Water Safety & Clarity

This water here is clear, as you would imagine of a Mallorcan beach. A lifeguard is also on duty during the peak season and busy summer months.

Beach Quality

The sand here is soft and white and perfect for sunbathing, beach games and building sandcastles.

Beach Bars & Beachclubs in Mallorca
