How to Get to Mallorca

It's very easy to travel to Mallorca from the mainland by plane or ferry. Our 1-hour and 20-minute flight from Madrid's Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport (MAD) to Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI) was quick and simple. Another option is to take a scenic 5 to 7-hour ferry ride from Barcelona.

Getting Around Mallorca

If you are staying for more than a couple of days and plan to beach hop, renting a car is the best way to explore Mallorca. However, if you stay near Palma, you can easily get around by taxi or on foot. With more time in Mallorca, we would have opted for a rental car to explore more of the beaches.

Where to Stay in Mallorca


As the capital of the Balearic Islands, Palma is a perfect area for sightseeing, luxury resorts, and shopping. Just minutes from the airport, Palma is a great place to stay for a quick trip to Mallorca.

The luxury Nixe Palace is a 5-star hotel situated on Cala Major Beach and near the heart of Palma. Our 2-night stay was filled with poolside drinks, enjoying our private terrace with beachfront views, and savoring their amazing breakfast.

Nestled within Palma's old town, the 5-star Sant Francesc Hotel Singular is a renovated 19th-century mansion. Gardens, a rooftop terrace, and central location near restaurants and attractions make it an ideal spot.

Ses Saline

The charming town of Ses Saline offers local restaurants and shops. With a rental car you can explore nearby hiking and beaches.

This family-owned hotel is a great place for a relaxing getaway. Finca Hotel Rural Es Turn is an intimate resort with only 17 suites and offers a country club, restaurant, and spa.
