Mallorca


About Mallorca

Mallorca is the biggest Spanish island. With Ibiza and Menorca, they are the most well-known tourist paradise of the Balearic Islands. Tourists are welcome by the more kilometers long beaches, fancy observation points, mountain serpentines and centuries-old olive trees. More than 1500 restaurants were opened to serve the guests on the island, where they can try the specialties of Mallorquin cuisine beside the international dishes.

You can take walking tours in the inner part of the island among the untouched, bare rocks and tiny picturesque villages, while we can know more about the island's history from the centuries-old monuments. The capital city of the island is Palma, which provides several exciting attractions that we can reach on foot or by bicycle conveniently.

Transportation

Metro

Since 2007, the first metro line of the island connects the city center with the University of the Balearic Islands. Seven stations out of 9 are underground, the entire journey takes 12 minutes. M2, the second line is not a classical metro service as it operates on the same tracks as commuter railways.

Tram

Not only a mean of public transport but also a tourist attraction! The heritage tramway runs between Sóller railway station and the nearby village of Port de Sóller. Another heritage service runs with wooden carriages from Palma to Sóller, which is unofficially called as Orange Express, as the line was used in the previous century to carry orange and lemon from the fields to the city.

Bus

The most important transport method. From Palma, the capital, buses run to all areas of the island. Check the schedule in advance, as some remote places are served only twice a day (morning and evening)!

Taxi

Cabs are relatively cheap during daytime (except for the extra charge for luggage). In evening hours (approximately from 9 PM to 7 AM) and weekends, higher fares apply.

Useful Tips

In some zones of Mallorca, there is a ban on selling alcohol at night. In the areas, signs display the prohibition of buying alcohol or drinking in the streets from 12 AM to 8 AM. Breaking this rule can result in high fines.

From more than 300 caves of the island, the chill Dragon's cave (Cuevas del Drach) is the most popular. The biggest underground lake in the world is located here, where visitors can boat too. At the end of the tour, visitors can watch a light show escorted by a small concert performed from a boat.
