Ciutat Jardí is situated at five kilometres east from Palma, next to Fortí Torre d’en Pau, a construction which was finished in 1898 in order to defend the bay of Palma from a possible attack by the USA because of the Cuba’s war.

The name comes from one of the developers who wanted to construct a touristic resort of luxury style nearby Palma at the end of the 20th century, and in 1922 the Hotel Ciudad Jardín, in neoarab modernist style, which is still operating.

The beach is sandy, with little waves, gentle slope and it has on both sides some breakwaters with cylindrical position towers. At some hundred metres you will see in the water some sheltering breakwaters which reduce the swell.

Every day this sandy area has a massive influx of families and tourists. The most attractive is the easy accessibility and the very good bathing conditions for small children. You can park for free near the beach. The next bus stop is at half a kilometer and there is a cycling lane.
