Palma Airport Transfers
Holidaymakers have long been drawn to Majorca’s Mediterranean climate and relaxed way of life. Majorca is the largest of the Spanish islands, but at approximately 100km long and 75km wide airport taxi transfer times are never very long and one of our drivers will have you on the beach and soaking up the sunshine in no time.

Magaluf and Palma Nova are perhaps the most well known resorts on the Spanish island of Majorca. Situated on the island’s southwest coast, at the western end of Palma Bay, they are also amongst the closest resorts to Palma Airport, being approximately 35-40 minutes by taxi transfer from Palma airport. During the peak season this is 18-30s heaven, with Palma Nova being the quieter of the two, if only by a narrow margin. Both Magaluf and Palma Nova have sandy beaches and plenty to keep you entertained day and night.
The closest resort to Palma airport is C’an Pastilla. Bearing in mind its proximity to the airport, it is no surprise that this was the first of Majorca’s resorts to be invaded by the British when mass tourism began in the 1960s. Whilst it does have the benefit of very short taxi transfer times from Palma airport, usually around 10-15 minutes, some of the hotels are so close to the airport that they suffer from aircraft noise so it’s worth checking before you book.
If the party resorts in the south of the island are not your cup of tea, then why not head north to the resorts of Alcudia, Pollensa and C’an Picafort? Although the furthest resorts from Palma airport, good road links mean that they are by no means the longest in terms of airport taxi transfer time, with airport transfers taking just under one hour. The crescent-shaped Bay of Alcudia spans more than 8km with Alcudia at one end and C’an Picafort at the other.
The beach at Alcudia is well serviced with beach bars and cafés, but the atmosphere is calm and relaxing and the evening entertainment extends mostly to that provided by the hotels. The original old town of Alcudia is 3km inland from the coastal resort and port, but is worth a visit with parts of the town dating back to around 1300.
At the other end of the bay C’an Picafort is a resort with a very German influence, and is thus extremely popular with German tourists. The resort has a traffic-free beachside promenade lined with restaurants and bars, but, similar to the other resorts on this coast, it has a calm and peaceful atmosphere making it particularly popular with families.
Travelling north from Alcudia you come to Pollensa. Pollensa is a charming resort that lies on the northwest coast of the island making it one of the furthest resorts from Palma airport. Still, thanks to good road links to this part of the island, taxi transfers from Palma airport only take around one hour. The hotels are centred around the port, which tends to be home to a multitude of luxury yachts. Again the old town of Pollensa is worth a visit and can be found 5km inland from the port and resort.
The east coast of Majorca also boasts some quieter resorts appealing to families and couples more interested in gazing into each other’s eyes than at a disco ball. Cala Millor (meaning the better bay) is probably the liveliest resort on the coast. It is a modern resort built along a 6km bay. Separated by a rocky headland is the smaller resort of Cala Bona (meaning the good bay). Originally a small fishing village it has expanded to cater amply for the tourist market, but Cala Bona still retains its charm with narrow streets and a lovely fishing harbour.
Other resorts on this stretch of coast include Sa Coma and S’Illot two peaceful, family-friendly resorts joined by a waterfront promenade. Taxi transfers to this side of the island take just over an hour from Palma airport.
Most resorts in Majorca offer everything you may need for your holiday. Without the need for a car during the week an airport taxi transfer becomes a very attractive option. With an airport taxi transfer you don’t have to worry about car security, parking or petrol and we will whisk you to your resort hassle-free.
Pre-booking your airport taxi transfer will save you time and money. Take the stress and worry out of landing in a foreign airport by arranging our personal meet-and-greet service at the airport. Don’t worry about taxis not being available, being ‘ripped off’, not speaking the language or not having the correct currency.
When arriving in Palma airport your private taxi, minibus or coach driver will be waiting holding a signboard displaying your party’s name at the exit of the arrivals hall. Please be aware this can be a busy area and you may need to take a good look at all the signboards before you find your name!
We strongly recommend booking your Palma transfer early as Palma is a busy airport and peak dates can become booked up, so take a wait off your mind and book your Spanish taxi transfer today.
