First timer

Hi, As a frequent traveller to Lanzarote (Puerto del Carmen) am considering trying Majorca this year. Essentially somewhere where there is a bit of life but not too lively would suit. Nice bars and restaurants to chill in the evening would be nice with the option of going to music bars with good groups etc. Not really a night club type of person. Any tips re location would be appreciated.

Thanks

Palma Nova sounds like it would suit you fine, has a wide range of bars, eateries,entertainment and great beaches. Don't confuse it with Magalluf next door as it is quite different and more laid back.

No contest....Puerto Pollensa.

Lovely town to the North of Mallorca with excellent beach, restaurants and good for 'matures' travellers.

one hour straight run from Palma airport

Soller and Port Soller;

once there, you have a picturesque small hill town, with a tram down to the charming and quite (but not too) touristic port (or stay in the port and tram up to the town). A narrow gauge railway takes you through the mountains back to Palma; about an hour or more each way, so an ideal day trip for a sightseeing/cathedral/old town/lunch... You can even do a bit of hillwalking if not too hot

Use the search bar above to find more posts on Soller; most visitors love it!

Agree that Soller is beautiful.Also love Deya.

As OP says that they Iike Puerto del Carmen , they may prefer to be at the coast

Agree with trinet that Palma Nova would be more suitable for the OP . Also Cala Millor has a long stretch of coastline , like PDC but with better beaches .
