If you are staying in Alaior itself, you won’t even need transport to get to know it. Distances are not great but be sure to have a map to wander up and down the steep streets that make the town so enchanting. If you are staying in one the nearby urbanizations, you can either rent a car or motorbike or use public transport to get around.
How to get around
The best ways of discovering the town
The most convenient and cheapest option
Alaior is connected with the rest of the towns thanks to the 01 Line bus service, with the stop by the sports centre. The L32 runs from Alaior to Son Bou and operates in the summer months. The L33 takes you to Cala en Porter. Check out the bus network on http://www.tmsa.es/ to see the links and routes that will get you around most of the island .
A fast quality service
The taxi rank is very close to the bus station, and there are generally one or two taxis waiting for passengers there. Using a taxi for short trips is ideal, or to take you to somewhere that you can’t reach with public transport.
Moving about at your own pace
Having a car is definitely the best way to enjoy your holiday with your family in Alaior. To get to most beaches, particularly the ones near the town, all you have to do is get on to the main road. Both Son Bou and Cala en Porter are well-marked. You can also take the road to the Alaior cemetery and discover a lovely inland rural landscape that links with the Camí den Kane road and gets you to the Maó-Fornells northern road to head east or west to Mercadal for other stunning beaches.
Motorcycle or scooter
For short trips
If you are a couple, that opt for a motorbike or scooter, a word of advice: be very careful when using the ME-1 main road. You can get to anywhere on a scooter, but we recommend using public transport to get to Ciudadela. Enjoy the breeze as you drive down to Son Bou!
