Working in Palma Nova

The Balearic island of Mallorca has some great tourist resorts and Palma Nova is one of the busiest of these beach resorts.

The even bigger neighbouring resort of Magaluf is a better place to look for work but there are still good summer job opportunities here in the various bars, pubs, restaurants, hotels and clubs.

Palma Nova is quieter than Magaluf but still a busy, built-up resort.

job-spain-graphic It was created in the 1960’s so it does lack charm and character but it has three good beaches: Playa des Carregador is the quieter of the three beaches at the northern end, Playa de Palma Nova is in the middle and Son Maties at the southern end next to Magaluf. Head north to some lovely secluded coves, including Son Caliu.

Perhaps you might find work at the beaches helping with teaching windsurfing, pedal boat hire, banana and doughnut rides?

The three beaches are lined with hotels, fast food restaurants, cafes and bars so there are plenty of vacancies in summer.

There are other towns in Mallorca you can try such as Port de Soller if you want a beach resort or the capital Palma de Mallorca.
