3. Hotel Almudaina Sky Bar

The rooftop terrace at Hotel Almudaina

Seeking the ultimate city views? Hotel Almudaina hits the spot! This place is a hidden treasure – if you are distracted by all the fabulous shops along Avenida de Jaume III, you might just walk past its tiny entrance without realising. But if you manage to find it, you’ll be rewarded with some of the best views of Palma’s spectacular cathedral, the city’s historical architecture and the port. Being a more laid-back roof terrace, prices are especially reasonable here in comparison to other rooftops around Palma.
