Taxi Transfer to Playa de Muro – Getting from Airport to Playa de Muro
Getting to Playa de Muro by Taxi Transfer, Car Hire and Bus
With its amazing long sandy shoreline, laid back beach front bars and restaurants as well as a National park right on your doorstep, Playa de Muro has all the ingredients for a fun-filled family holiday.
Located on Mallorca’s northeast coast near the well-preserved medieval town of Alcudia, Playa de Muro is a former fishing village that has retained its charm despite the arrival of tourists.
Roughly divided into two parts, the 5-kilometre long white sandy beach is comprised of the secluded Alcudia Pins in the south and the more lively Las Gaviotas to the north.
Geared up for families with young children, the gently sloping beach has all the water activities you would expect to find on a first-class Spanish beach, plus lifeguards, toilets and showers.
A palm-fringed promenade runs along the beach full of chill out bars and restaurants with many of the eateries offering a children’s menu with familiar items from back home.
Because of all the extra security procedures and new rules, air travel has us stressed out even before we get to our destination. Fortunately, Palma de Mallorca international airport (PMI) is only a two and a half hour flight from most European cities but can be quite daunting if you have never been there before.
Below is a list of your best options for getting from Mallorca’s airport to Playa de Muro in the northeast of the island.
Taxi from Palma Airport to Playa de Muro
You will have no trouble recognising a licensed taxi in Mallorca as they are all painted white with a red & yellow stripe across both front doors and on the bonnet. They also have the universal illuminated taxi light on the roof to let you know if they are available or occupied.
The taxi rank at Palma Airport is located directly outside the Gate C Exit from the arrivals hall. As soon as you clear customs look for a sign with a taxi on it and follow the arrows. If someone approaches you offering a ride to your resort ignore them as they are pirate taxis operating without a licence and insurance. Before getting into any taxi look for a metre as all taxi fares in Mallorca are calculated using a taximeter. All fares to and from the airport come with a 2.90€ surcharge and are higher during the night and on weekends and holidays. Taxis in Mallorca are only allowed to carry four passengers by law and that includes babies, no matter how small. Also, taxis do not have baby seats, which means if you are travelling with a young child they will have to sit on your lap. With PMI being such a busy airport during the summer you will most likely have to wait in a queue at the taxi rank until a car becomes available. If you are travelling as a family or in a group you would be better off arranging a private airport transfer to your hotel or rental accommodation.

In recent years there has been an increase in companies offering to pick you up at Palma International Airport and take you to and from your holiday destination. Competitive price-wise with taxis, a private airport transfer to Playa de Muro also has the advantage of being booked in advance with you already knowing exactly how much the trip will cost with no unexpected add-ons. There is also no waiting around at the airport with your driver waiting for your flight’s arrival in the arrivals hall holding a sign with your name on it. With a private airport transfer, you also have the opportunity to select a vehicle that best serves your needs, be it a large group, young children or passengers with reduced mobility. If you think that a private airport transfer might be best for you, we can recommend Solhop for transfers to Playa de Muro as their drivers usually speak English and there are no problems if you need to cancel or alter your trip. Solhop is also the number one recommended private airport transfer company on TripAdvisor.
