Where to Buy a Business - Palma

Palma de Mallorca


Palma is a very cosmopolitan city which offers great all year round business opportunities.  The summer is very popular with a wide variety of nationalities, some stay in Palma while others visit on day trips from around the island.  Due to the beauty of the city, it is also a top winter destination for city breaks.  

The huge yachting community is another market with massive potential.  Some yacht crew are based in Palma all year round while others spend the winters here while carrying out maintenance on the boats.  The owners come to use their yachts and enjoy the island from Easter until October.  There are also many sailing regattas throughout the summer which attract many visitors.
