How to Get Around Mallorca


How to Get Around Mallorca

If you are travelling to Mallorca and thinking about using public transport, be aware that it has serious deficiencies in terms of efficiency and coverage. Schedules are limited and routes are restricted, making access to many areas of the island difficult, especially the most remote and attractive destinations for visitors.

To get around Mallorca efficiently, we recommend travelling by car, which gives you the freedom to move at your own pace without relying on pre-set schedules. You can explore every corner of the island comfortably and personally.

With a rental car, you will have the opportunity to discover remote and little-visited places that are not easily accessible by public transport. You can reach hidden coves, charming villages, and impressive natural landscapes.

Can you imagine exploring all the secret places in Mallorca with complete freedom? At Autos Mallorca, we make it very easy for you. Read on and find out how to make it possible.

Advantages of Discovering Mallorca by Car

Getting to know Mallorca by car offers numerous advantages that can significantly enrich your travel experience. Here are some of them:

  • Freedom and flexibility: You can create your own itinerary and change plans at any time without depending on public transport schedules. The freedom to stop anywhere that catches your attention, allowing you to explore less touristy areas and discover hidden gems, is priceless.
  • Access to remote places: Visit some of the most beautiful and isolated beaches such as Cala Tuent or Cala Figuera, which are more accessible by car. You can also visit the charming mountain villages like Valldemossa and Deià, which can be more difficult to visit without a vehicle.
  • Greater comfort and time efficiency: You can enjoy a controlled climate and take breaks when you need to, which is ideal for family trips or with children. Additionally, reducing transfer or waiting times between destinations allows you to make the most of your stay on the island.
  • Panoramic views: You can stop at viewpoints and points of interest such as the Ma-10 road that runs through the Serra de Tramuntana, offering spectacular views and unique photo opportunities.
  • Cost savings for groups: If you travel in a group, renting a car can be cheaper than paying multiple public transport tickets, not to mention that fuel becomes more affordable.
  • Night outings: It allows you to explore the island at any time without worrying about the public transport schedule.

Other Transport Options in Mallorca

Public transport: Buses and trains

  • Bus network in Mallorca: It is extensive and connects the capital with different towns, providing an economical and practical option for getting around. However, you will need to plan each of your trips very well to catch the buses on time.
  • Trains: They offer the possibility of touring the island in a picturesque way, connecting Palma with various places of tourist interest.

Another interesting way to explore the island:

  • By Bicycle, especially on routes like the Cap de Formentor route or the coastal road of Tramuntana, which offer spectacular landscapes to enjoy. However, we recommend renting a car with a bike rack so you can practice your favourite sport anywhere without problems.


Final Tips for an Unforgettable Trip to Mallorca

Planning and preparation for your stay

  • Research the places you want to visit and create an itinerary.
  • Book your accommodation in advance to ensure availability.
  • Pack appropriately according to the season and planned activities.
  • Check the weather forecast to prepare for any eventuality.

Enjoy all the possibilities the island offers

Mallorca is an island full of charms and activities for all tastes. Make the most of your stay by following these tips:

  • Explore the crystal-clear waters and natural beauty of the island.
  • Visit charming villages and immerse yourself in the local culture.
  • Try the region’s typical cuisine in authentic restaurants.
  • Participate in tourist and leisure activities to have unique experiences.

The first recommendation to achieve all this is to choose the right rental car that suits the terrains you will explore. Another key aspect is to book your car in advance. The demand for car rentals in Mallorca can be high, especially during peak season, so booking in advance guarantees availability and better rates.

Last but not least, it is also essential to familiarise yourself with local traffic rules before starting your trip. If you are visiting from an American country, keep in mind that Mallorca may have specific driving and parking rules different from your country. Being aware of these regulations will help you avoid fines and setbacks during your stay on the island.
