Majorca (or Mallorca) is a popular travel destination of Spain and is flooded with millions of tourists worldwide. Along with the sun, sand and sea, there are many other attractions to discover. Explore Gothic architecture, hilltop villages, olive groves, hidden coves and enjoy the crazy summer parties while in Majorca. Palma de Mallorca, the northwest coast in the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, and the north and east coast beaches are the most visited places.
There are many flights from European cities to Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI). The best part of it is, many of the discount airlines have daily flights to Palma. There are flights from Menorca and Ibiza, but the airfare is almost double the price of ferries from these islands, saving only about an hour. From Palma airport, one can hire a car or travel by public bus to reach the destination.
One can catch a ferry to Palma from several points of the Balearic Islands. Some ferries are from Barcelona, Denia Alicante and Velencia. There is also a ferry from Minorca to Alcudia.
Many areas of Mallorca are reachable by bus. Major holiday resorts are accessible by bus with a reasonable frequency. Weekly buses are available to some areas which are too far from the central bus station. Many bus routes are not served on Sundays and nights. Check out the bus schedules online.
Rail transport is limited to Puerto de Sóller, Manacor, Inca, Sa Pobla and Sineu. To reach the rural towns, one needs to opt for a private transfer like a rental car. At some places, bus shuttles are available too.
Book a rental car could be the best option, especially along the coast. During peak season, it is advisable to book a car well in advance and get a good discount. One can also rent a car after reaching the airport, but rental prices are far higher than booking in advance.
Renting a bicycle and roaming around the town, the coast is one of the cheapest options.
