Ferries to Mallorca

Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, just over 200 kilometres east of Valencia, Spain.

Renowned for its stunning coastline comprising gorgeous coves, dramatic cliffs and turquoise waters, Mallorca is one of Spain’s top holiday destinations.

As you would expect from a Mediterranean island, Mallorca boasts some excellent beaches. On the southeast coast, you’ll find one of the finest called Cala Llombards. The long, thin strip of white sand and shallow water make it ideal for families with young children.

Cala Torta in the northeast offers large stretches of pristine sand and clear, deep water. This idyllic beach is perfectly suited for snorkelers and windsurfers and has a small seafront bar serving exquisite grilled fish, too.

If you would rather spend your day soaking up the local culture and history, be sure to visit the fascinating Roman ruins of Pollentia in the north. The town was originally founded in 123 BC and quickly became an important city in the Balearics. Still visible today are the remnants of a theatre, a forum and residential areas.

The island’s capital, Palma is the gastronomic hub. It offers a mix of upmarket restaurants and authentic tapas bars to suit all budgets, all serving exceptional seafood paella and a local herbal liqueur called ‘Herbs de Mallorca’.

Palma’s most iconic feature is the beautiful yet imposing 14th Century namesake cathedral. It has a superbly decorated interior too, designed by Gaudi, which is well worth seeing.

In Pollensa to the north, the 365 Calvari Steps ascend from the main square to the tiny Calvario Chapel at the top. Although the climb is challenging, you are rewarded with sublime views across the island throughout.

There are frequent high-speed ferry crossings between Mallorca and the other Balearic Islands of Menorca to the northeast and Ibiza to the southwest.

You can also sail from mainland Spain, with frequent crossings from Barcelona, Valencia and Denia on the east coast.

Mallorca reviews

  • "Great way to travel to Palma"

    We traveled from Barcelona to Palma on 24 February overnight on Fortuny. We expected fairly basic accommodation and possibly a disturbed night. Our cabin was execellent - like a good class hotel room with all the facilities to make our night comfortable. We both slept well and felt confident in the hands of the crew.It was exciting to be able to look through the porthole to the sea ahead and to arrive at Palma as the day began. On the return journey the weather was bad and there was a storm as we came into Barcelona. Again our experience was comfortable although the ship was rolling. When we arrived we were unable to dock at the terminal because of high winds but the crew ensured we were safe by arranging bus transport for the foot passengers and illuminated traffic direction for the cars. One problem was that there was not sufficient information about what was going on and why we were delayed at the time. Also there was no information about where we would embark at the terminal in Palma. It all worked out well but we were anxious while waiting for transport. So some announcement and information would have been very helpful. All in all however it was a very enjoyable experience.

  • "Barcelona - Palma Mallorca ferry review"

    Was really hard to find the Balearia desk as there was no signage at all! Almost missed the ferry which was a bit of a stressful start to my trip. Once on the ship all was fine fortunately.

  • "Truly perfect"

    We travelled on the Trasmediterranea ferry between Barcelona and Palma. Ferry both ways was great, cabin great, food in restaurant also good. Departed on time, but the boarding in Palma wasn't at the same place coming back as was when we arrived. Fortunately we get there early so found the new port which is in the direction of the cathedral, and well sign posted. Overnight it is definitely worth having a cabin but no need for a daylight crossing. Parking the car on the ship could be a bit easier too!
