San Salvador Monastery Mallorca

Mallorca Halal Explorer

Mallorca (3640 km2) is known as an easy-to-reach mecca for friends of sunny beaches, amazing landscapes, wonderful mountains and affordable mediterranean food. With a coastline of more than 550 km. In high season the island receives about 8 million tourists from around the world. This is both a blessing and a curse for the inhabitants, and they are well prepared for it and provide a very well-organized tourist infrastructure.

Nevertheless, Mallorca can show another face when you leave the coastline and take a look at the inner country. Prices fall with each kilometer you move away from the coast, and reach the usual Spanish standards in the center of the island or even some parts of the mountain area.

Geographically the island can be divided into three parts. The Serra de Tramuntana rocks extend from south-west to north-east, while the Serra de Llevant stretches along the eastern coast. Between them lies the central plain (Es pla).

Travel as a Muslim to Mallorca

Buy a Flight ticket to and from Mallorca

There are frequent flights from many European cities to Palma de Mallorca Airport (IATA Code: PMI). In particular, many of the discount airlines have daily flights.

There are also flights from Menorca and Ibiza, but these are about double the price of the ferries from these islands, and save only about an hour.

From the airport (Palma de Mallorca Airport) public buses run frequently to central Palma. Many car rental agencies have their offices at the airport.

Book a Halal Cruise or Boat Tour in Mallorca

You can catch a ferry to Palma de Mallorca from the other Balearic Islands or from several points on the Spanish coast, including Barcelona and Valencia and a super-fast ferry service from Denia Alicante. You can catch a ferry to Alcudia from Menorca.

How to get around in Mallorca

Train routes around Mallorca.

Many spots are reachable by bus; while transportation between the major holiday resorts is no problem, especially medium- and long-distance services may be as sparse as one bus per week; many bus routes are not served at all on Sundays, in the lower season and during the night.

There is inland train transportation, but mainly limited to Puerto de Sóller, Manacor, Inca, Saturday Pobla and Sineu. Rural halts tend to be far away from town centres, but there are usually bus shuttles available. If you would like a private direct transfer to your resort on the island you could also book a private transfer from one of the many online suppliers like mytransfers.com, mozio, or holidaytaxis.

Cars can be rented in many tourist towns, especially along the coast. Unless in high season, when you should book your rental in advance if you want to ensure getting one, hiring a car directly at the airport without reservation shouldn't be any problem at all. However, as "at desk" rental prices are often far higher than booking in advance it may be prudent to organise it from home before you arrive (and to avoid disappointment during peak periods).

What to see in Mallorca

  • Caves - several caves are open to the public, the Dragon Caves GPS 39.53337,3.3312(Coves del Drach in mallorquin) being the most visited

Mountain in Mallorca


This is what the most people come for. The main tourist areas are on the southern and eastern coast but places may be crowded in high season. Mallorca has beautiful white sand and crystal water beaches, so most are base for package tourists nowadays. In more remote areas you might find very rarely visited beaches. More secluded and quiet beaches can be found on the island but expect a difficult route (e.g. cliffs) and minimal parking. A must visit is Es Trenc, near the Colonia de Sant Jordi, but there are also many beaches not that popular worth a visit. Note - If you find yourself in Palma, looking for a quieter beach than the 5 km strand (Platja de Palma), take the line 3 of the town's public bus company "EMT" (blue and white buses) all the way to its Western terminus "Illetes", which is simply called Playa. It is a wonderful little cove set about by rocks, with a local restaurant right on the beach. There are other coves in either direction, but this is the most welcoming.

  • Cala Figuera Beach - Formentor peninsula 39.46270, 2.51921 - Located deep within a cove with high mountains on both sides of the water. Spectacular view.
  • Cala Murta Beach - Formentor peninsula - Small secluded beach with fine white sand. Transparent water.
  • Cala Sant Vicenc - Cala San Vincente Beach - Sant Vicenc city - Beautiful beach on the north west coast of Mallorca. Fine grained white sand and very clear water.
  • Magaluf Beach - in Megaluf city - A beautiful 900 meters long beach with fine sand and clear water. New and stylish promenade is close.
  • Es Trenc Beach - A large, not developed, beach with fine white sand and crystal clear water. Protected area now.
