In the Mediterranean Sea, between Menorca and Ibiza island, and facing the Spanish mainland’s eastern coast, sits the Mallorca island. Being the largest island in the Balearic, it has excellent air and maritime connections to most Spanish and European cities. Check out all your below if you’re considering visiting Mallorca and want to know how to get there and around the island.
Getting to Mallorca
The best transportation to get to Mallorca is to fly there. As the third-most significant airport in Spain and one of the busiest in the Mediterranean, Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI) is likely the quickest and most practical route to reach Mallorca. The airport is open all year round, but the summer months see the highest travel volume between the island and the major Spanish and European towns.
Transportation from Palma International Airport (PMI)
The airport of Son Sant Joan, as it is commonly called, is only 8 km away from the island’s capital, Palma, and is conveniently close to popular tourist destinations like El Arenal and Playa de Palma. Therefore, if you want to visit these locations, you can do so through Marjoca airport transfers or public transportation.
Let’s explore other options for getting to your lodging from the airport:
From the “Arrivals” part of the airport, you can find the bus stop (blue buses) that connects for 5€ with both the city (line A1 of the EMT) and the El Arenal neighborhood. Lines A11, A32, A42, and A51 of the business Aerotib, which operates yellow buses, connect various island areas throughout the summer.
A tourist bus
Getting to know Mallorca without a car is convenient and reasonably priced due to the abundance of businesses offering airport transfers Majorca and excursions to the most well-known tourist attractions. The main disadvantage is that you’ll need to make reservations and follow schedules, but this isn’t typically a major deal when you’re on vacation.
The taxi rank is in the same “Arrivals” section. A taxi from the airport to Palma should cost about €20. Check the pricing with the taxi driver before departing because it will be significantly more expensive if you need to visit another island area.
Using private transfers Majorca is more convenient to get to your lodging. This solution picks you up at the airport and drives you to your hotel safely, quickly, and comfortably. It is a substitute for taxis, and we also suggest it if you don’t want to visit the entire island or if you’re considering using another type of transportation, such as a boat or bike, to get around Mallorca.
The trip from Palma to Soller is the most popular and delightful. The journey to Soller’s 17th-century station is a beautiful scenic narrow gauge train ride over the mountains. There are two other routes on the island, one leading to Inca and the other to Manacor. All trains depart from Placa Espana in Palma.
Private transfers are more convenient, so you can get to your accommodation and explore the island at your own pace without any restrictions.
