Getting to, from and around Majorca
Low cost and charter airlines like Ryanair, easyJet and Jet2 fly year round from the UK to Palma. Expect more flight options during the summer months as the holiday season ramps up. Between May and September, you can expect many regional airports like Bournemouth, Belfast, Newcastle and Norwich to offer direct flights too.
Bus services around the island are frequent, but be mindful of first and last buses, as well as Sunday services. From the airport, you can get to many of the popular areas like Palma city centre, Alcudia, Palmanova, Magaluf, Can Picafort, Cala Bona and S'Arenal. Buses depart from outside the arrivals hall at Palma Airport.
By far one of the easiest and cheapest ways to get from the airport to your hotel is with an airport coach transfer. These can be booked in advance when you book your holiday in Majorca. Companies like TUI and Jet2holidays are likely to include shared airport transfers within your package holiday, so that's one less thing to worry about.

A walk around Palma Old Town highlights some of the islands cultural history. The narrow streets with beautiful juliet balconies, lead to the impressive Sa Seu Cathedral, one of Majorca's most iconic buildings. If you want to get away from the pool or beach for a bit of culture, this gothic cathedral will leave you gawping at its sheer size.
If you're a fan of the outdoors, Majorca is home to the Serra de Tramuntana, a mountain range and UNESCO World Heritage Site in the west of the island, and about an hour and a half drive from Palma. The stunning scenery from some of the peaks and view points makes the hiking and biking trails well worth the effort.

The combination of great eateries, Old Town culture and nightlife make the main city of Palma an ideal location for a short holiday or city break. Hotels along the Avinguda de Gabriel Roca offer rooms with superb views over the marina.
If it's beach life you're after, venture further out to holiday hotspots like Alcudia in the north or S'illot in the east. Althought they may take a little longer from the airport the beaches in both are beautiful.
If you're after nightlife, try the popular holiday resort of Magaluf, south of Palma. Whilst having a reputation as a messy night out, there are still some great bars perfect for relaxing in with a beer or wine. For those who want to stay at a party hotel, check out somewhere like the BH Mallorca hotel which hosts regular pool parties and has it's own adults only water park.
