Getting to Santa Ponsa – Taxi transfers, Car hire & Bus

Getting to Santa Ponsa from Palma airport can be achieved in a number of ways. These could be; taking a taxi or pre-booked private transfer, catching a bus or hiring a car.

Santa Ponsa is on the east side of Mallorca and is 33km/20miles from Palma airport.  The roads are a little busy around Palma city but the journey isn’t too far.  It’s approximately a 30 minute car journey from Palma airport.

If deciding to take the bus, passengers will need to go by airport bus to Palma city bus station first and from there take the bus to Santa Ponsa.  Palma city bus station is 8km/5miles east of Palma Airport.

Taxi – Private Transfer

*Please note – prices are for a standard licensed saloon vehicle with Meet & Greet service at PMI

Taxi prices range in price depending on; the season/holidays, the amount of baggage, the company and the time of day.  A Taxi for 1-4 persons to Santa Ponsa is around €50.

Palma airport taxis do have a fixed price system but it is always best to get a quote before you start your journey. This is because there are variables which can increase the fare.

There are usually ample taxi waiting and available at the airport so this makes a taxi an easy option.  The Palma airport taxi area is also directly in front of the arrivals building.  However at busy times passengers may have to wait in the taxi queue.

Parking in the peak season can be tight around Santa Ponsa.  A taxi transfer is therefore a very good option as it is quick and avoids the problem of parking or driving stress.

It is good to bear in mind that most Palma airport taxis will only take 4 passengers per 1-4 pax taxi. So this means if you are a family of five, even if one is a baby, you will need to take an extra taxi.  This will cost more than you might have expected. 

A final point worth noting is that waiting taxis at Palma airport don’t always have child safety seats available.

Pre-Booked Private Transfer

If you decide to use a taxi service from Mallorca airport it may be best to use a pre-booked private transfer service.  This is because it can often work out to be more economic especially if you are a large party, and as a bonus the vehicle is often a luxury vehicle.

Therefore pre-booking a private taxi transfer, any time of the day or night, is probably the most comfortable way to get to Santa Ponsa from Palma airport.

When pre-booking a private transfer it’s possible to book child safety seats in advance.  This will give peace of mind to anxious parents as they will know that a driver will be prepared and waiting for them.

Drivers will meet passengers with a name placard in the airport’s public arrivals hall.  Drivers will often help with luggage.

Transfers can be pre-booked for various size groups.  Vehicles come in sizes of 1-4 cars, 1-7 minivans or 8-20 minibuses.   In most cases it’s possible to book a vehicle large enough for your party.  For those who require a coach, they are able to do so with some private transfer websites.

Getting to Santa Ponsa with a hire car

If you have decided to hire a car from Palma airport for your trip to Santa Ponsa you just need to plan the route, it’s fairly easy.

Once you have your car exit the airport following the signs for Palma city.  You will join the Ma-19 to Palma city. If your hire car was at the east of the airport then you will join the main highway by the gas station, which is only a few hundred metres and one junction further away.

Continue on the Ma-19 for approximately 4.3km, 3 minutes, until junction 3 and take the Ma-20 signposted Andratx/Alcudia.

Stay on the Ma-20 for just over 10km/6miles going around Palma city until junction 11A and merge onto the Ma-1 towards Palmanova/Andratx.

Stay on the Ma-1 for around 11km/7miles and at junction 17 take the exit for Santa Ponça.  At the roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto Avinguda del Rei Jaume I  and stay on this for around half a km until the next roundabout.

This is the big roundabout on the edge of Santa Ponsa.  From here it really depends where you want to go.

If it’s to the main urbanization of Santa Ponsa you will need to take the 3rd exit onto Av. de Santa Ponça and stay on this for approximately 2-3km before taking your desired exit for your accommodation.
