Located in the southwest of Mallorca, 6km north of Santa Ponsa and near to Camp de Mar, Peguera is almost an entirely German family beach resort. Slightly more upmarket than the nearby party towns of Magaluf and Palma Nova, Peguera took advantage of the package holiday boom of the 1960’s and has since continued to be a popular seaside town that caters to holidaymakers looking for sea, sun and fun.
Accommodation in Peguera is plentiful and reasonably priced even for hotels located directly on the beach, with the town having plenty of activities to keep the entire family occupied for hours on end.
If you have had enough of the beach you can play a round of golf at one of the nearby courses or go hiking or biking in the Tramuntana Mountains. Also, being just 23 kilometres from Palma, a day out shopping and sightseeing in the island’s capital is a must.
Peguera has three main beaches Playa Palmira, Playa Tora and Playa La Romana all linked together by a palm-lined promenade and seafront hotels.
After 7pm at night, cars are banned from the Bulevar de Peguera in the centre of town, which is where you will find shops, bars and restaurants together with boutiques selling all the latest fashions and designer goods.
Taxis in Mallorca are easy to recognise thanks to their distinctive white paintwork and the red and yellow stripes found on the doors and hood. They also all have the universal taxi light on the roof that tells you if they are occupied or not. Taxis in Mallorca all use a metre to calculate the fare and for the most part, accept debit and credit cards for payment. All fares originating from the airport see the metre start at 2.90€ with additional charges levied after 10 o’clock at night and on weekends and national holidays. Taxis in Mallorca are only permitted to carry four people and that includes babies. If you are travelling in a group or have a lot of luggage you would be better off hiring a private airport transfer.
The taxi rank at Palma Airport is located opposite Gate C in the arrivals hall and will most likely have a queue if you arrive at the airport during the peak daytime hours. Ignore anyone who approaches you saying they are a taxi as they are operating illegally and will not have the required licence and insurance.
Unfortunately for those people who are used to ordering their UBER on their smartphone once they get off the plane, in Mallorca, they will be out of luck, as UBER is banned on the island. Not to worry though as you have plenty of efficient ways to get from the airport to Peguera.
Let’s be honest, no one likes having to wait around once they have just gotten off a flight and gone through all the hassle involved in flying these days. This is why a private airport transfer makes sense in so many ways. Firstly, there is no waiting around as your driver will be there in the arrivals hall to greet you and escort you to the car. Secondly, the vehicles used by private transport companies tend to be more glamorous, allowing you to travel in style. Thirdly, there is no guessing as to how much it is going to cost as you will have already been told the fare in advance. When selecting a private airport transfer have a look at the reviews on TripAdvisor, where you will see that our personal favourite Solhop has the highest score. The other thing we like about Solhop is that there is no problem should you need to cancel or change your pickup time.

With Palma de Mallorca International (PMI) being Spain’s third busiest airport it will be no surprise to hear that every major car hire company and a few local operators have offices at the airport. Renting a car on holiday can be a great way to explore the island. With Mallorca being such a popular tourist destination, we would advise you to book your car well in advance so as to avoid disappointment. Also, be sure to read your rental agreement closely so that you are not hit with any unexpected charges when you take the car back to the airport.

Getting to Peguera couldn’t be easier and should take less than 30 minutes. When leaving the airport, take the exit for Palma, merging onto the MA-19. Drive for about 5 km before taking the Ma-20 exit for Andratx. After passing through the tunnel, take highway Ma-1 directly to Peguera.
Previously, you would have had to take the airport bus into Palma and then change buses to get to Peguera. Starting in 2017, bus operator TIB began running a bus between the airport and Peguera stopping at Costa d’en Blanes, Son Caliu, Palmanova, Magaluf, Santa Ponça and Costa de la Calma. While the A11 Aeroport-Magaluf-Peguera service runs regularly during the summer, the service is infrequent during winter-time. Tickets can be bought on the bus, but make sure you have the correct change or nothing larger than a 20€ note.
