A well-connected island
Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands, an archipelago located in the westernmost Mediterranean.
The most comfortable way to travel to the island is by air, since the international airport of Palma offers great connectivity with other Spanish and European cities.
On the other hand, the boat is a good option if you decide to come with your own vehicle. The two passenger ports (Palma and Alcúdia) are well connected with Barcelona, Valencia, Denia, Menorca and Ibiza. In addition, in high season, it is possible to reach the port of Alcudia by ferry from Toulon (France).
The island is one of the favorite stopovers for cruise ships on Mediterranean routes and, as Mallorca has more than forty ports and yacht clubs, it is also the ideal place to moor if you decide to come by your own boat.
