Getting around Mallorca

The best way to get around Mallorca is by car, especially if you want to explore the island's more remote beaches, nature parks, hill towns and mountain retreats at your own pace. Cars can be hired in every town or resort.

You can also get around much of the island by bus and train, especially in high season. Although some services are limited or non-existent during the low season.

Motorbikes, scooters and bicycles are also available for hire.

Mallorca's roads are generally good, although steep, narrow mountain routes can make it difficult for coaches and cars to pass other than at special points. Heavy traffic congestion is rare.

A few cliff-flanked coastal roads, including Sa Calobra and Formentor are ideal for motorbike touring, as are several narrow country roads that meander through the interior.
