Rent bikes on PalmaonBike, it's a 10min walk from the harbour, and the cheapest option is fine, 12 euro/day.

You can bike to Illetas beach (about 1h), swim at Illetas beach, have a paella(book it in advance) on 'Illetas playa' or 'es parral' if you want to try the majorcan typical food. When you have two/three hours left, bike to the Cathedral and walk a bit the center of the city for cute shops and stuff.

OR
Go for the Cathedral, Plaza de España/Plaza Mayor, Visit shops in Calle Sindicato and San Miguel, and then, follow the paseo marítimo direction Arenal. Stop by any place you like on the way for lunch, like 'il tano' or 'quina creu' in Palma City, 'marisqueria Can Jordi', or 'Don Caracol' in Ciutat Jardí, or 'Can Torrat' / 'Rancho el Picadero' in Arenal.

OR
Before renting the bike, walk directly to Mercat de Santa Catalina, they close around 14:30/15;00, and have some food. It will be crowded by tourists but you get to see a market in the city. Rent the bike after, Start on Cathedral (Bellver is way to high to bike there!), go to Baños Árabes, then visit the buildings 'Fundacio La Caixa' and 'Casasayas'. Bike all the way to Puro Beach/El peñon through the east shore and have a drink there. Enjoy the view.

OR
Cathedral, Paella at Safrà21 in Ciutat Jardin, and finish at Aquarium in Arenal or walking the city center Plaza España through San Miguel to Playa Mayor, and then to puerta de San Antonio through Sindicato.

Go to the Castell de Belver which offers the perfect view above Palma. Taxis are cheap, but you could also hike which would take max. 2 hours.
Afterwards walk back the Paseo de Maritimo (maybe take a short turn at the Molinaros = Windmills) and until the La Seu cathedral. From there, walk into the city centre to Plaza Mayor or a bit further to Plaza Espana and then take a turn left to the La Rambla and follow south until the Passeig de Born/Jaume III. From the rooftop of the El Corte Ingles you have another view of the La Seu and at the end you could take a drink in the Santa Catalina district.
