Palma Ibiza 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.

  • "Algeciras to Ceuta crossing"

    For the past few months I've been having to travel to Ceuta and I only have praise for the ferry and the crew. It's always been a smooth sailing without any hiccups! The crew are always welcoming, polite and with a smile. You can't go wrong choosing Balearia, that's my view anyways

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.

Ibiza Guide

The Spanish island of Ibiza lies in the Mediterranean Sea and is located to the east of the Iberian Peninsular and is one of the Balearic Islands. The island's land area is just over 570 sq. km and along with the neighbouring island of Formentera was called the island of the pines by the Greeks. Ibiza Town, the largest town on the island, was first settled by the Phoenicians and still has walls surrounding it that were built in the 16th century to prevent attack by Turkish pirates.

Today, the town is characterized by narrow cobbled streets, medieval mansions and a cathedral which is located close to the castle. the island is popular with scuba divers who are attracted to the island's warm, clear waters. The sea bed in the Las Salinas National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, because of the ecological importance of the sea grass that grows there.

Which is better Palma or Ibiza?

The question of whether Palma or Ibiza is better ultimately depends on personal preferences. Palma, the capital city of Mallorca, offers a blend of history, culture, and beautiful beaches. Its stunning Gothic cathedral, Bellver Castle, and charming old town are major attractions. Palma's vibrant nightlife scene, with numerous bars and clubs, is also popular. Additionally, Mallorca offers various outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, and water sports.

On the other hand, Ibiza is renowned for its world-famous nightlife and vibrant party scene. The island attracts top DJs and hosts globally recognized clubs like Pacha and Amnesia. Ibiza's beautiful beaches and crystal-clear waters are ideal for relaxation during the day. Moreover, the island offers stunning sunsets, picturesque villages, and exquisite Mediterranean cuisine.

Both destinations have their charm, and the choice between them depends on individual preferences. Those seeking a combination of history, culture, and a lively nightlife might prefer Palma. In contrast, those looking for a party-centric destination with world-class DJs and spectacular beaches may choose Ibiza. It is essential to consider factors such as desired activities, atmosphere, and personal interests when deciding between Palma and Ibiza.

How many days in Ibiza is enough?

The number of days you should spend in Ibiza depends on your preferences and interests. If you are looking to experience the vibrant nightlife and party scene for which Ibiza is famous, a weekend or a few days could be enough. However, if you also want to explore the island's beautiful beaches, visit historical sites, and enjoy the natural beauty of Ibiza, you may want to spend at least a week. This will allow you to relax and take in the different aspects of the island without feeling rushed.

Additionally, if you are interested in attending one of the famous music festivals held in Ibiza, such as the International Music Summit or the Ibiza Rocks festival, you may want to plan your trip accordingly to ensure you have enough time to enjoy the festival and explore the island. Ultimately, the ideal duration of your stay in Ibiza will depend on your personal preferences and the activities you wish to partake in while on the island.
