Car Rental in the Balearic Islands
Why rent a car in the Balearic Islands?
Renting a car in the Balearic Islands means being able to experience them fully. Palma, the biggest city in the Balearics, is a fascinating city to delve into. Its old town is a treasure trove of historical sites, mixed in with beautiful boutiques and trendy eateries. The rest of Mallorca is stunning and varied too, with mountainous peaks meeting tranquil coves, and authentic inland villages leading the way to rustic walking paths.
The smaller islands of Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera are full of pleasant surprises for those who dare to get out and explore them also. The coastlines are dotted with some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean, and their bucolic interiors host interesting museums, markets, caves, and remnants of Balearic history.
Top ways to enter Balearic Islands
- Palma de Mallorca Airport: By far the largest in the Balearic Islands, Palma Airport is the third busiest in the whole of Spain.
- Ibiza Airport: The main airport of Ibiza island is served by more than 30 airlines.
- Menorca Airport: Like the other two Balearic airports, Menorca is mainly active during summer, but does have regular service to and from mainland Spain all year.
- Ports. All of the Balearic Islands have ferry connections to the other islands and mainland Spain. Menorca and Mallorca also have ferry connections to mainland France.
Top cities and places to visit
Palma: Full of restaurants, beaches, and nightclubs, Palma also offers a lot in terms of interesting history and architecture.
The rest of Mallorca: From busy world-class beach resorts to little fishing villages and pristine inland nature areas, the largest of the Balearic Islands is exciting to explore, perhaps even more so outside its capital. Spot native birdlife in the S'Albufera Natural Park, visit the tranquil shores of Platja de Formentor, take the vintage train to Soller, or hike in the mighty Tramuntana Mountains.
Ibiza: One of Europe's most famous party destinations, Ibiza also tempts visitors with its beautiful and mysterious Es Vedra rock, secluded beaches, and fascinating historical sites. Get away from the capital, and you’ll discover the true flavor of this diverse island.
Menorca: Although sometimes overlooked for its larger neighbor Mallorca, Menorca is a great place to visit thanks to its prehistoric rock formations, beautiful harbors, relaxed beaches, and incredible walking trails. It’s also famous for its gin and Menorcan sandals — incidentally, two of the best things to shop for on the island!
Formentera: This small and picturesque island can be easily reached by a boat ride from Ibiza, making it a popular day-trip destination. But to truly experience the best of the island, stay a few days so you can watch the sunset at La Mola lighthouse, visit the markets at Es Pujols, and cycle through the Ses Salines Natural Park.

Palma - Alcudia (58 km / 36 mi) Located on the northern coast of the island, the beautiful town of Alcudia is just under an hour’s drive away from Palma and has a daily ferry service to nearby Menorca.
Mahon - Ciutadella (46 km / 28.5 mi). Driving between the current and the ex-capital cities of Menorca is easily done in around 45 minutes and allows you to take in the two largest cities on the island — each with its own unique charm.
Ibiza - Portinatx (30 km / 18.6 mi). Experience two very different sides to Ibiza with this drive from the party capital, to the quiet northern coast, which can be completed in just over half an hour. In Portinatx, you can settle in at a seaside bar or hit the hiking trails to discover old watchtowers, lighthouses, and hidden coves.
