Cheap flights to Palma won't break the bank

Britons who have booked cheap flights to Palma for their Easter break can jet off safe in the knowledge that they will be enjoying value for money, as well as the sand and the sea.

Writing for the Guardian, Nicola Iseard said that many people were now committed to bagging themselves the best holiday deals and that, thanks to the internet, this had never been easier.

And the Mallorcan capital Palma was a particularly popular choice, she added, due to the abundance of entertainment and culture it had to offer its visitors.

Ms Iseard noted that one of the highlights of Palma is that it is a "great jazz city" with many of its bars and jazz clubs offering free entry in the evenings.

"Cheap eats come tapas-sized in Palma; try Lizaran, where prawns, cheeses, cold meats and pates all come on slabs of bread for a couple of euros each," she enthused.

There is also plenty for those who have booked cheap flights to Palma to see for free once they touch down.

The Telegraph's Alexandra Ferguson recently noted that the city's Old Town is still largely unspoilt by tourism and also boasts an imposing Gothic cathedral which can be viewed without spending a penny.
