Globales Santa Lucia

If you’re looking for sophisticated décor and sea views, then you’ll love Globales Santa Lucia, between Son Matias and Palma Nova beaches. There are almost 360 sea-view rooms in the hotel, each with private balconies. The curvy main pool overlooks the beach and is surrounded by a trendy wooden sun deck and white loungers. A pool bar serves snacks and refreshments in the day. The elevated solarium above the pool offers jaw-dropping views and there’s an indoor pool with a sauna and Jacuzzi. A buffet restaurant serves an international spread, and the two indoor bars are great to relax in over a cocktail with friends. If you want to experience the nightlife of Magaluf, the resort’s main promenade is a 15-minute walk away.

Overview of Majorca

Sunny Majorca has it all. You can live it large in Magaluf or enjoy a quieter, family-friendly break, hiking or scuba diving or exploring the cultural hotspots, like Palma, the capital. But you’re most likely to gravitate to one of its many beaches to stretch out on the golden sands. If you want to experience a little of everything on your holidays to Majorca, head to the popular resort of Palma Nova. It’s ideally located near Palma and party-loving Magaluf, and it boasts some spectacular beaches. The Globales Santa Lucia is a highly recommended hotel pick.

Things to do in Majorca

Staying at Palma Nova, you can choose between Son Matias and Playa Nova Beach, both ideal for swimming and sunbathing to your heart’s content. Palma Nova has pubs and restaurants galore, but if you want something more upbeat, head to the beachfront cocktail bars, foam parties and super clubs of Magaluf. If you’re more interested in culture, it’s around a 30-minute drive to the stunning capital of Palma. In the narrow medieval streets of the old town, you’ll discover a range of upmarket boutiques, museums and al-fresco restaurants. Holidays in Majorca promise relaxing sunny days and balmy nights. Whether you’re swimming in the ocean or celebrating with a jug of sangria, you’ll soon feel everyday worries melt away.

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.
