Municipal Water Sports

The city of Palma de Mallorca is well equipped for water sports with swimming pools in the Palau Municipal d’Esports Son Moix, the Piscinas Municipales Son Hugo, the Polideportivo Municipal S’Estel, the Polideportivo Germans Escalas and the new Polideportivo Municipal Rudy Fernández. Or would be, if it wasn’t for the fact that in October 2007 a tornado took off the roof of the swimming hall of the Son Moix sports palace causing havoc to the sports and swimming facilities. Son Moix has been closed ever since but is said to be undergoing extensive repair work starting from this month and over the next two years. The restored Palau d’Esports Son Moix is scheduled to be inaugurated and re-opened in 2013, Insha’Allah.

In the meantime, you might want to have a dip in the 25 m lanes of the indoor Polideportivo S’Estel (shown above), round the corner from Palma’s Porta de Sant Antoni, bang in the centre of Palma’s inner city. Entrance fees are modest with 5 € per person per day or an annual subscription of 135 €. There are swimming classes on offer as well as pre- and post-natal classes, yoga, tai-chi and pilates courses and, what have you. Recommended during the pre-season, before the sea water has warmed up again, come June/July.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: March 15th, 2011. The time was 11:40:09.

    • Hi Caitlin,
      thanks for popping by. There are about 440,000 people living in Palma de Mallorca, and a total of 860,000 in all of Mallorca.
      Good luck on your forthcoming book.
      Greetings to Vancouver.
