About Palmanova Beaches
The holiday resort town of Palmanova has three blue flag beaches. These are Playa Es Carregador (or Porto Novo), Playa de Palmanova (also known as Playa Na Nadala) and Son Matías. All three beaches have fine white sand and shallow entry into a clear blue sea.
Playa Es Carregador is located beside the marina of Club Náutico de Palmanova. At 600m long it is the smallest of the three beaches. Playa de Palmanova and Son Matías spread over 1000m and 1200m respectively, providing plenty of space for families with children. At Playa de Palmanova an area of pine trees at the back of the beach provide welcome shade during the day.
All three beaches have good facilities which include sun bed and parasol hire, showers and toilets. The seaside promenade connecting them has bars, restaurant, shops and children’s playgrounds.
With three beaches on a wide bay, located in the Southwest, Palma Nova offers typical resort amenities and a cut-above-the-average mini golf course. […] Palma Nova
