How quickly can you be on the beach in your swim wear after arriving at Palma airport? Ten minutes perhaps? Literally the time it takes to leave the airport as the coast is right there. But realistically you need to check into your hotel first!
Perhaps you just need to stopover a night to get your connection flight the next day. Or maybe you booked your flights at an unearthly hour to get the cheapest deal. However you could end up paying the money you’ve saved on a hotel and taxi.
During the early hours airports aren’t an especially favorite place to be, full of people reluctantly trapped on their way to somewhere or not as the case may be. If you decide to wait it out all night there are a few 24hour bars/cafeterias open at Palma airport. But it’s not very inviting during these nocturnal hours of continuous twilight.
You can usually forget all that if you opt for an airport hotel, however Palma airport has no on-site hotel. That being the case then the closest hotel to Palma airport could be the next best option.
Which are the most economical or the most practical, as you don’t want drunken holiday makers spoiling a much needed sleep.
