Welcome to Palma

The development is not without its problems. An 18,000-hectare 'gas city' is planned for the Palma area, but its roll-out has been hindered by a mixture of fluctuating world energy prices and controversial proposals to relocate large numbers of Palma's residents.

Palma sits on the coast nestled among coconut groves 45km south of the Tanzanian border. A melting pot of languages, with Makwe, Makonde, Mwani, Swahili and Portuguese all spoken, it doesn't hold many sights per se, and is usually used as a staging post on the way to Tanzania.

We will first meet at Club de Mar where you will set off on an amazing day cruising the Med. Our cruises take you on a tour of the iconic Palma sights such as the Gothic Cathedral. After you will have time to try your hand at some water skiing, wakeboarding, wake surfing or just get pulled around on the tube. We will then head to some beautiful bays to do some swimming and snorkeling. As part of the full-day and half-day cruise our friends from Cap Falco Restaurant will offer you some of the best food you've ever had. The rest of the afternoon is your oyster! Do as little or as much as you like. Swim it off in the crystal clear waters of Portals Vells or lay down for a siesta on one of the many comfy Mastercrafts X55 lounges. We then head back to Club de Mar for teary goodbyes.
