Within Palma, public transport is far preferable to a rental car due to heavy traffic and limited parking, though the number 1 bus from the airport is a fantastic service for those staying in the capital.
Running every 15 minutes, seven days a week, the number 1 bus stops throughout the city centre – including Plaça d’Espanya for access to the main train and bus station – and continues on along the seafront to Porto Pí.
The main train and bus station is the island’s public transport hub; buses head out from here and across the island regularly. It is worth noting that outside of Palma public buses are coaches.
There are also many private airport shuttle services, which are great options for groups or families, and work out quite cost effective when calculated per person.
A fleet of taxis waits outside of the arrivals terminal at Palma Airport (PMI). Airport taxis charge extra per suitcase so the cost can quickly add up.
Taxis can be hailed from the street or pre-booked through your hotel for travel during your holiday.
The train line is limited, running as far as the towns of Manacor and Sa Pobla via Inca. It stops in villages such as Santa Maria as well as the Festival Park outlet shopping mall but in general is of little interest to tourists.
Just outside of the main train and bus station in Palma is the antique Sóller train station. As one of Europe’s oldest continuously running locomotives (it has been chugging up into the mountains for over 100 years) it is a true tourist delight and a wonderful way to see the inland valleys, almond and orange blossom and spend a day in the beautiful little town of Sóller. During the peak summer months it sells out quickly so you’re best off buying tickets in advance.
