Platja de Can Pere Antoni

Platja de Can Pere Antoni is situated at two kilometres east from Palma, just in front of the palm trees of Paseo Marítimo and the impressive silhouette of the gothic cathedral of Palma (La Seu) and the Episcopal palace.

The urban sandy area ends with breakwaters on both sides. Winds of the second and third quadrant permitting, the water is quiet enough to take a bath and it is the best moment to anchor a boat on a ground of sand and seaweed. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic Portitxol, at 0,1 nautical miles east.

The fact that Can Pere Antoni is just in front of the maritime façade of Palma explains that it is and urban beach with a massive influx of local people. You can park for free in the surroundings, but the area next to the beach is a pay-parking (ORA or public parking areas). You are recommended to take the public transport to reach this beach, the bus stop is at some hundred metres. Another option to reach the beach is walking or using the cycling lane to enjoy the beautiful view over the bay of Palma, el Parc de la Mar and the skyline of the buildings of the old part of Palma. The inhabitants of Palma and the tourists use the Paseo Marítimo, which goes from Porto Pi to Ciudad Jardín, for athletic and wheel sports.

Municipality information Palma

The municipality of Palma is situated in the southwest of Majorca, and it is the most important municipality in population. The city of Palma is the political, administrative and business centre of the Balearic archipelago. The service sector, tourism and construction lead the economy since the sixties of the 20th century. Quinto Cecilio Metelo founded Palma in 123 BC after conquering Majorca for Rome in order to definitely control the Mediterranean basin. Medina Mayurqa, the Arab name of Palma, was integrated in the omeyan state of Al-Andalus at the beginning of the 10th century. The Christian king Jaume I d'Aragó conquered the island on the 31st of December 1229, calling it Ciutat de Mallorques. In 1230 it became the capital of the Regne de Mallorca. The landscape is characterized by an extensive coastal stretch (with a high rocky western area and a low sandy coast toward east), Serra de Tramuntana (western limit: Pujol des Gat, 510 metres high), the interior of Pla de Palma (northern area, concentration of agricultural land), Pla de Sant Jordi (eastern sector, irrigated agricultural land) and transition areas toward sa Marina de Llucmajor and Pla de Mallorca (eastern end, with some wild and some cultivated high areas). This municipality is irrigated beach some torrents that flow into the sea on its coast, with Torrent de sa Riera flowing through the city centre.

The cultural variety includes the old town of Palma (Roman, Arab, Jewish vestiges, stately palaces and courtyards), Castell de Bellver (round military fortress of the 14th century, at 112 metres to guard the bay of Palma), la Seu (gothic cathedral with the later intervention of the architect Antoni Gaudí and the painter Miquel Barceló), Palau de l'Almudaina, Convent de Sant Francesc (with the tomb of Ramon Llull), Consolat de Mar (seat of the Govern de les Illes Balears), sa Llotja, Ajuntament de Palma, Consell de Mallorca, Gran Hotel, Palau Solleric, Palau March or Fundació Joan i Pilar Miró, where a big part of the graphic works of Joan Miró are guarded.
