Palma de Mallorca is the only real city on the whole island and actively promotes tourism. Those visiting the city should be sure to head to the Old Quarter, where cobblestone streets, Gothic-style architecture, noteworthy fashion boutiques and stylish bars are all close together. However, this area can become busy and is also brimming with tourist-related gift shops. The beaches are best reached by bus, with many high-rise apartments and hotels lining the bay area.
Popular resorts, towns and villages along the south-western coast of Mallorca include the small town of Port d'Andratx - which is surrounded by a small bay, and the seaside town of Sant Elm - a popular day excursion from Palma. Along the north-western coast, the villages of Banyalbufar, Deià, Estellencs and Valldemossa are all worth visiting.
