"Feedback on ferry trip with Balearia"
Reviewed 20 October 2014 by Sheila
The ferry is a great way to experience the crossing between Menorca and Malllorca. Balearia have thought about how to make the journey pleasurable and this is appreciated by passengers. It would be great if the movies were subtitled in English as Balearia makes all the announcements in Spanish and English but the movies are only in Spanish.

"Wonderful alternative to flying"
Reviewed 22 September 2014 by Paul Lavin
Myself and my wife go to Menorca every year and regularly fly direct to the island. This year, due to disagreeable flight times, we decided to try a different approach...and how glad we were. We flew to Palma on Majorca, took a bus transfer to Alcudia and then the Balearia ferry crossing to Ciutadella de Menorca. A long days travelling, yes, but a fantastic alternative to our usual approach, the highlight being the ferry crossing. Watching Majorca fade and Menorca appear was a fantastic experience, the weather was good, the crew were courteous and helpful and (according to my wife) they served the best coffee she'd had in a long time. We will definitely be doing this again some day soon. Highly recommended (and, in case you were wondering, the overall cost for our complete journey was just £40 more than flying direct).

We make the crossing Alcudia-ciutadella at least one time per year, but we had not done it before with ISCOMAR. The staff is very kind and friendly, facilities are confortable and boarding and disembarkation very fast. Next time we will look for at first option for Iscomar ferries.

The Spanish town of Alcudia is located on the island of Majorca in the Balearic Islands. It is a major centre for tourism on the island and is popular with families. The Old Town has many examples of houses that date back to the 13th century and is surrounded by a medieval wall. The Old Town is around 2 miles from the port. The Port d'Alcudia and Platja d'Alcudia parts of the town, along the 14 km long beach that runs all the way to Can Picafort, is where most of the hotels can be found.
For visitors planning to travel to Alcúdia by car or motorbike, then you will have to get a ferry which operate daily from Barcelona, Denia and Valencia to Mallorca. During the busy summer months there are additional direct services to Barcelona. The normal journey time is 7 hours but this can be reduced to 3 hours if a Fast-Ferry is taken. It is generally cheaper to travel to the island by ferry than it is to fly.
On the far western end of the Balearic Island of Minorca lays the city of Ciutadella, the old capital of the island. Its remote origins have left an important archaeological heritage in the area, in the form of megaliths such as the "taulas" (megalith), the Talaiot and the Navetas. This beautiful port city's historic quarter, called Es Born, is surrounded by medieval streets filled with palaces, churches and fortresses. Among the most significant buildings that face the old town's square, the City Hall stands out, built on top of the old Arab citadel. The present city hall dates back to the 19th century and still preserves some remains of its primitive construction. It is also possible to visit, during certain periods of the year, some of the rooms of the nearby Palace of Salort. Next to it is the Palace of Vivó, one of the most emblematic in the city, with its peculiar Neoclassic red façade, ornamented with traditional island motives. A beautiful panoramic view of the port, which is located in a cove at the foot of the city, can be seen from the "mirador" (viewing point), behind the City Hall. Not far from the city, visitors will discover excellent Minorcan coves and beaches, as well as remote fishing towns.
