Those who vacation in Mallorca and want to explore the island, usually take a rental car or scooter. However, self-driving on vacation is exhausting and also not entirely harmless. However, few vacationers remember that it is also possible to get there by cab. Mallorca is a prime example of how to experience the island by cab instead of rental car.

Let drive instead of driving yourself
Those who are looking for relaxation on vacation often don’t feel like getting behind the wheel themselves. Therefore, it is a good idea to leave the idea of renting a car to the left and explore the island by cab instead. In addition, there are now even specialized providers. Here’s how taxitourmallorca shows an overview of which travel options and destinations are common on its website. Also larger travel groups bring the company in minibuses favorably over the island.
It does not always have to be the transfer airport-hotel.
Destinations by cab in Mallorca
If you consider renting a cab (or a rental car) and leave the city limits of Palma de Mallorca behind you, you can explore the island off the beaten track. The reward is a completely different perspective on the beauty of Mallorcan nature.
In addition, traffic routing and signage is not always self-explanatory.

With its island diameter of about 88 km, Mallorca is the largest island of the Balearic group. Tourism is very important here. Over 10 million vacationers flock to the Mediterranean island every year. Especially the mild temperatures in spring and autumn are perfect for an active vacation off the beaten tourist track. There is something for every taste and level of difficulty. Whether climbing, hiking or biking, there are countless beautiful routes that lead past deserted coves and unspoiled patches of nature. Many long stretches of coastline invite you to take extensive swimming breaks on the hiking trails.
But even the efforts of an ascent in the Tramuntana mountains are often rewarded by magnificent views of the turquoise sea. To escape the tourist masses for several days, the long-distance hiking trail is particularly suitable. The Grand Recorregut leads once across the island from Port d’Andratx to Pollenca through sleepy mountain villages and old monasteries. Who wants to go higher, climbs the highest mountain of the island, the Puig Major with its 1445 meters in altitude. For those who prefer to breathe the mountain air slowly or who don’t want to miss out on a relaxing beach vacation, there are countless half-day hikes or day trips.
Also for water rats there are just as many possibilities. Divers, sailors, surfers, all can spend their dream vacation in Mallorca. But be careful: the wind forces along the coast can vary quite a lot. One must therefore know where. The bay of Pollenca, for example, guarantees calm sailing, while skilled surfers are more likely to find the biggest wave near Artà.
In Mallorca there is something for everyone. There are countless possibilities. A rental car or cab takes vacationers directly from the airport even away from the tourist centers. You should not only think about rental cars, but perhaps also treat yourself to the cab service and enjoy the view all the more relaxed during the ride.
