Want to go on a little adventure to visit Mallorca’s sister island of Menorca? Well, thanks to frequent flights and ferries between the Balearic Islands, it’s easy enough to get there. Whilst flights are certainly the quickest way to travel, I get on enough flights per month and wanted to explore the ferry option so we could create an adventure out of it.
Researching ferry options we found that Mallorca and Menorca each have two ferry routes operating between the islands. The Palma (Mallorca) to Mahón (Menorca) route seemed the obvious option at first because they were our departure and end destination points. However, it just wasn’t feasible because the travel time was 6 hours on the ferry. On closer inspection, the Alcúdia (Mallorca) to Ciutadella (Menorca) ferry route of just 2.5 hours looked like the better choice for a day trip even if we did have to do a little more driving.
