However, urban transport connections with the areas farther away from the capital are not the best, in terms of options and frequency, so our recommendation is to rent a car, so you can move to your hotel and enjoy, without limitations, the island at your own pace.
Mallorca has two ports for passenger traffic: the port of Palma, being the main one, and the port of Alcudia. These connect with Barcelona, Valencia, Alicante, Menorca and Ibiza and, in high season, with Formentera and Toulon (France).
The port of Palma connects with the cities of Barcelona, Valencia, Denia and Gandía. The ferry trip lasts between 6 and 8 hours, approximately, depending on the departure city and the type of vessel chosen.
If you are traveling to Mallorca from any of the other islands of the Balearic archipelago, the ferry is definitely the best option. Mahon is about 5 hours from the port of Palma, and Ciudadela is about 1 hour from the port of Alcudia.
If you prefer to take your own vehicle, either car or motorcycle, to move around the island, you will have to travel by boat. On the mainland, the main connections with the port of Palma de Mallorca are the cities of Barcelona, Denia and Valencia. However, the trip is much longer and more tiring, about 8 hours, but you have the possibility of arriving by Fast-Ferry, the journey in these high-speed boats usually lasts between 3 and 5 hours but, logically, the prices are higher. There are also available maritime lines to move and visit other Balearic Islands like Menorca or Ibiza, a good plan to take into account in your vacations.
