cheap flights to Palma

On August 15th, over 3,000 people are expected to go to Can Picafort where a number of boats will pull up in front of the Hotel Sol y Mar.

Holidaymakers going on cheap flights to Palma over the coming days might arrive in time to enjoy an event known as “releasing of the ducks”.

The boatmen and women will then release around 350 rubber ducks onto the water for attendees to try and catch.

Until 2007, live birds were used and acted as a trophy for the lucky few who managed to grab one.

However, local authorities were persuaded to switch to yellow toy versions after protests from animal rights campaigners.

This free event could be fun for all the family and the location is situated about 60km outside of Palma.

People travelling to the city might also want to explore the Bellver Castle with their children.

This gothic style building was constructed from 1300 to 1310 and now attracts many tourists every year.
