The island’s public transport includes bus, train and taxi. There are buses in all towns, although not all buses run directly from Alcúdia. The hub station is Palma, something that you need to bare in mind when planning your trip. The road network is extensive and the distances of the island are not long, therefore it can be visited from one end to the other using a vehicle.
Mallorca has a constantly renewed road network. There aren’t many motorways, but an extensive road network connects the cities, villages and rural areas of the island. There are four important motorways: Palma’s ring road, the Palma-Andratx motorway, the one that links Palma with Santanyí and the motorway that connects Palma with Sa Pobla, only 15 km away from Alcúdia. The distances in Mallorca are not long, therefore journeys normally last less than an hour. Although the journey in kilometres is not very long, you should take into account that is mountain road and therefore the circulation slow.
One of the roads with best views is the one that crosses the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, valleys, reservoirs and cliffs. One of the most picturesque mountain roads is the one of Sa Calobra, a 10 kilometre road that leads to one of the most exceptional beaches of Mallorca.
Finally, it is important to know that the roads of access to certain coves tend to be tertiary routes that are not always paved.
