The Placa d’Espana is also the bus terminal of the city and the old train taking you across the Tramuntana Mountains to Soller also departs here. On Spanish Square, the "Plaza España", you find the old Art Nouveau railway station. Since 1912, the so-called "Red Train" connects the route between Palma de Mallorca and Sóller. The ride leads past orange and lemon groves and the beautiful Tramuntana mountains. The train to Manacor and Sineu starts here too as well as many busses that take you into various towns and regions of the island.
Palma has a fairly long city beach, the Playa de Palma, located directly below the cathedral. This is moderately frequented in the summer months and reaches up to Arenal in the south. A walk along the beach promenade is always something special. Another and more popular beach is the small beach at Portixol, a suburb of Palma. This place has changed in recent years to a small hotspot. The numerous houses along the promenade have been extensively renovated and many nice bars and restaurants can be found there as well. A little further south is the beach of Molinar, also a very beautiful wide and popular beach with adjacent promenade. In southwestern direction you can bath at the Cala Major, a smaller beach bay wich is also very nice.
