Nicolicious on Palma the Mallorca. For the traveller which loves a combination of city life and beach this maybe an interesting option. This is one of the most clean cities I have ever visited, which i must say is very pleasant. The main shopping street is Av. Jaume III, many Spanish brands are represented here, on the Passeig des Born you will find LV next to Zara and my favourite Spanish clothing and accessories brand Carolina Herrera. Lots of little boutiques are in side streets of these boulevards, actually shopping is nice in Palma, the Spanish have a slightly more classical style than in the west of Europe. The shop you don’t want to miss is Rialto Living on Carrer Sant Felou, the best store on the island! Beaches, don’t let anybody fool you near the city centre are no beaches. The nearest beach is Nassau beach 20 minutes walk from the city, in this area are some restaurants do not expect Ramatuelle beach life. The beaches at es Trenc are sandy and white and very touristy! { Let me add very very touristy.} Worthwhile visiting is the basilisk which looks like an gigantic sand castle. Dining and wining can be very good in Palma: Caballito de Mar serves outstanding sea food, reservation needed 971721074. Bungalow has a good reputation and was recommended, unfortunately i had no time to test it 971262738. The Nicolicious overall opinion of Palma the Mallorca is very nice for a city break 3 – 4 days is just perfect to catch some sun, and prowl around the city.
