Globales Nova

The Globales Nova is on a bit of a hill, so you see all the way to Son Matias Beach from the pool. There’s a really tranquil feel to the pool area and shady trees line the terrace to make it a private spot. When the little ones want to get active, there’s a kids’ club.

Dining is also relaxed – the poolside bar serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and you can eat on the al fresco terrace. For after-dinner cocktails, head to the hotel’s lounge bar. There’s usually some form of entertainment, too.

Overview of Palma Nova

Palma Nova was one of Majorca’s first tourism towns. Since, it has gone from strength to strength and it’s now one of the most popular resorts with people looking for holidays to Majorca. It’s a lively town that specialises in beach-based fun. Top hotels like the Globales Nova have picked spots near the sand, so it’s easy to swap from pool to beach.

The resort also has convenient links to nearby attractions, so you can explore the island. Although Palma Nova is quieter than neighbouring Magaluf, there’s still plenty going on, including beachside bars, high-end dining spots and a whole raft of water sports.

Things to do in Palma Nova

The Globales Nova is in a quiet spot, but you’re no more than a couple of minutes from a gorgeous sweep of sand. The resort’s home to three sandy beaches, so there’s plenty of space for families to set up camp. At the rear of the beaches, there are even a few playgrounds for kids. On the front, water sports dominate, with scuba diving and snorkelling particularly popular.

For your evening meal, Palma Nova’s home to more than 100 restaurants, so you’ll never struggle to find what you’re craving. The fishing port’s still in operation, so head towards the harbour if you fancy seafood.

With beautiful beaches, lots of natural beauty and plenty of restaurants, families love Palma Nova’s relaxing and sun-soaked shores.

Resort Summary

Palma Nova has three white, sandy beaches, the longest and most popular of which being Playa Carregador. This European Blue Flag-winning beach is 600 metres long and runs up to Palma Nova’s busy harbour.

There’s tons of space here for families to set up camp and the shallow, warm water is great for the little ones to do some splashing around in. There are even a few playgrounds at the rear of the beach to keep the kids occupied while you soak up the rays. This beach is ideal for water sports and you’ll find scuba diving groups, snorkellers and glass-bottomed boats making their way across the sea.

The two other beaches are Playa Palma Nova and Son Maties, both are also Blue Flag winners so are clean and have great facilities, plus there are parasols and sun loungers for rent. Son Maties has a few bars and restaurants along the promenade offering delicious drinks and a solid view of the Mediterranean Sea.
