Getting to Cala Millor – Taxi transfers, Car hire & Bus

Getting to Cala Millor from Palma airport can be managed in a few different ways. These being; taking the train partway, hiring a car, catching a bus, taking a taxi or pre-booked private transfer.

Cala Millor is on the west coast of the island and is more or less 71km/44miles from Palma airport.  The roads are not too busy and the majority of the journey is on the Ma-15.  It is roughly a 60 minute car journey from the airport.

If you decide that you want to take the bus, you will have two options. One is to go via Can Pastilla which is directly next to the airport and then take the bus to Cala Millor.  Another is to go to Palma city to the main bus and train station and then take the bus or train from there.  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

A Taxi for 1-4 persons to Cala Millor is around €90-100.  Taxi fares range in price depending on; the company, the season/holidays, the amount of luggage and the time of day.

Parking in peak season can be tight around the center of Cala Millor.  Therefore a taxi transfer is a good option as it eliminates driving and parking stress.

There are normally plenty of waiting taxis available at the airport.   Palma airport taxi area is directly in front of the arrivals building on the ground floor.

However at busy times it may be that you will have to wait in the queue.  Palma airport taxis should charge a fixed price but it is always best to get a price before the start of your journey as there are variables.  This can mean they will charge you a higher than expected fare.

Also bear in mind that the airport taxis at Palma airport tend to only take a maximum of 4 persons per taxi.  Hence this means that if you are a group of five passengers, even if one is a baby, you will need to take two taxis.  This will increase the costs to your holiday considerably.  Another point worth noting is that taxis at Palma airport don’t always have child safety seats available.

Pre-Booked Private Transfer

Pre-booked taxi transfers are probably the most comfortable and convenient way to travel from Palma airport to Cala Millor.

If you choose to take a taxi transfer from Palma airport it might be a good idea for your party to pre-book a private transfer in advance.  This is because it can work out to be more economic especially if you are a larger group and can be a more comfortable vehicle.

With a pre-booked private transfer it is possible to book child safety seats in advance.  So you will have the assurance that they will be there for your children when you arrive.

Another bonus with pre-booked private transfers is that you will usually get a more comfortable vehicle with a higher standard than a regular taxi. Your driver will meet you in Palma airport’s public arrivals hall with a name placard. Drivers will often help with luggage.

With a pre-booked private transfers it is possible to reserve vehicles large enough for your family or group.  The larger vehicles to Cala Millor come in sizes of 1-7 minivans or 8-20 minibuses.  If you need to book a coach it is also possible on some private transfer websites.

Getting to Cala Millor with a hire car

If you choose to hire a car at Palma airport to get to Cala Millor, it will be about an hour to drive and isn’t too difficult.

Simply exit the airport taking the main highway in the direction Palma city.  This will be the Autovia Ma-19 to Palma city. 

Stay on the Ma-19 for 1.6km/1mile until the next exit at junction 6.  Exit the Ma-19 onto the slip road you will come to a roundabout, take the third exit towards Inca on the Ma-30

Your will approach a roundabout within the first 250metres, continue straight over this and stay on the Ma-30 for a further 1.5km/1mile until you come to a large roundabout. Take the first exit onto the Ma-15 heading towards Manacor.  Stay on the Ma-15 for approximately 54km/34miles until Sant Llorenç.

If your hire car was from one of the car hire companies next to the airport on the east side of the airport, it is however better not to join the main highway.  Rather from the car hire pick up place head north on the Ma-19a which is parallel to the car hire parking lots and to the airport.  On the Ma-19a after 2km/1.5miles you will come to a roundabout and will need to take the second exit towards Manacor on the Ma-5013, this is practically straight over the roundabout and still heading northwards.  Eventually after another 3km/2miles you will come to a large round about, take the first exit towards Manacor onto the Ma-15 and stay on this for approximately 48km/30miles until Sant Llorenç.

Exit Ma-15 at Sant Llorenç

When approaching the town of Sant Llorenç the road will start to bypass the town.  However midway around the town you will come to a large roundabout and will need to take the second exit heading towards Cala Millor, this is the Ma-4030.

Stay on the Ma-4030 for approximately 6km where you will come to a roundabout and will need to go straight over.  The road will change to the Ma-4040, stay on this for a further 1km until the next roundabout and take the first exit onto the Ma-4023 heading towards Cala Millor.

Follow the Ma-4023 for 2.3km until the next roundabout where you take the fourth exit for Cala Millor on the Ma-4046 and hence in approximately 1km you will have arrived at Cala Millor.
