Palma Barcelona Ferry reviews

  • "A great deal."

    Got a fantastic deal with direct ferries. I was half expecting to pay more when I arrived, as I saw on line some customers seemed to have issues, but it was the real deal. All went great.  The boat itself was fine too, just a bit stinky outside from smokers, it seems to find its way to us, so we stayed inside, Inside was fine. Happily I marked the location when we disembarked in Palma, otherwise finding the Balearia port to leave is tricky as it is further down than the others & very poorly signposted. The link address was not the right port.

Palma Guide

The city of Palma is located on the south coast of the Spanish island of Majorca and is the capital city of the Balearic Islands. The city lies on the Bay of Palma and is surrounded to the north and west by a mountain range, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, called the Serra de Tramuntana. The city's history dates back to Roman times when the site of the present day city was an established Roman camp. Over the course of its history, the city has also come under the rule of the Byzantine Empire, the Moors and James I of Aragon.

The city is now very popular with tourists with attractions like La Seu, the city's cathedral. Built on the site of an earlier mosque, construction on the cathedral began in 1229 and was finally completed in 1601. Also in the city is the Parc de la Mer (the Park of the Sea) which is overlooked by the cathedral and is where visitors can relax under a large yellow and blue canopy which provides shade to a row of wooden benches.

Palma Ferry Port is located on the south western side of the city and provides excellent views of the cathedral as ferries depart. The busy port has good connections to major roads leading out of the city. Destinations available from the port include Ibiza, Mahon, Barcelona, Valencia and Denia.


Barcelona Guide

The Spanish city of Barcelona lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast, between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos and is also bordered to the west by the Serra Collserola mountain range. The city is the capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia and is the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid. The city's origins date back to when it was founded as a Roman city and then in the Middle Ages it became the capital of the County of Barcelona. Today, the city is a very popular tourist destination and cultural centre and is particularly well known for the architectural works of Antoni Gaudi and Lluis Domenech i Montaner, which have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the National Museum of Art of Catalonia which contains a collection of Romanesque art while the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art has a collection on post 1945 Catalan and Spanish art. Also in the city the Fundació Joan Miró, Picasso Museum and Fundació Antoni Tàpies hold important collections of these world famous artists, as well as Can Framis Museum, which focuses on post 1960 Catalan Art owned by Fundació Vila Casas.

From the city's port, whose piers are located close to the city centre, ferries depart to Mallorca, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med).
