Shopping in Palma de Mallorca

 

For shoppers Palma offers a mix of quality shopping, designer boutiques, high street favourites, artisan & antique shops. It is a delight meandering round the narrow streets, browsing the department stores and markets or taking a rest in one of the many outdoor cafés.
Palma is the perfect size for shopping, big enough that has the variety of shops you'd expect from a capital city but small enough that you can walk around it. General hours for shops are 10am to 8pm however beware not all shops open on Sundays or Bank Holidays. (some smaller shops may close in the afternoon)
