Starting point for a trip by car: experience Mallorca on the road
Mallorca is one of the most popular holiday destinations for holidaymakers from northern Europe. No wonder, because the Balearic Island is relatively close, offers the best holiday weather, magical beaches and an abundance of excursions as well as multiple leisure and sports options. Whether you are into pure party fun or a discovery trip across the island: the clever traveller hires a car from a TUI Cars rental partner on the island. Mallorca is best discovered with the flexibility only a hire car can offer. Book your hire car through TUI Cars in advance and pick it up from one of our partner car rental offices. Mallorca has car rental stations at the main resorts, so there is always a convenient car rental office close at hand on Mallorca.
Tank up on the sun: Mallorca and its beaches
Not all holidaymakers love the crowded party beaches on Mallorca. Luckily Mallorca is an island and therefore completely surrounded by water. So there are small, hidden bays, secret seaside haunts that most tourists are not aware of.
One of these lesser-known and therefore less busy beaches is Cala Sa Nau, located in the east of Mallorca. It is easy to get to this 35-metre-wide bay tucked in behind a pine forest. A small beach bar serves tasty snacks and cool drinks. So if you are traveling in the east of the island or just happen to be in the vicinity of a car rental office on Mallorca, hire a car and drive there so as not to miss this insider tip.
Wind around serpentines to Cap Formentor
The north-eastern tip of the island, the peninsula of Formentor, is predestined for excursions in a hire car. From Palma it takes about two hours to get to Formentor by car, and about the same time from car rental offices in resorts on the west coast.
Mallorca shows its rough and rugged side at Cap Formentor, where the steep coastline rises to an impressive 300 metres above sea level. The route by car from Palma is absolutely breath-taking along the last kilometres to the destination: serpentines wind ever higher upwards on the edge of steep precipices dropping down to the sea. It is not so much the destination but the route itself that is the main attraction, requiring good nerves and driving skills, and rewarded with spectacular views and the sight of the lighthouse perched on the highest point.
