Today, we talk about the delightful train ride from Sa Pobla to Palma. For those of you who are here staying with us or planning to come later in the year, who may wish to enjoy.
Although all our guests have cars, staying at our Villas, sometimes its rather nice to leave ones car at home for a change, and instead, jump on a train to ones destination without the worry of where to park in the middle of a city, especially, if one is not familiar with parking zones available, going round and round in circles.
A tip you may like to hear, as we are lucky that just around the corner from Pollensa is Sa Pobla, where there is the facility to catch the train ride down to Palma, we thought you may be interested.
You drive to Sa Pobla less than 10 mins away from Pollensa or your Villas, parking is a breeze, at large car park directly adjacent to the ticket box and railway station, which proves very convenient. The railway station is easy to find once you arrive into Sa Pobla.
The train ride down to Palma, although takes longer to reach than the journey down by car, and even longer than the bus, however, it is worthwhile, as you can relax enjoying the countryside of Mallorca, that probably you would not have the opportunity to enjoy and absorb whilst driving, the train stops at various places en route, such as Inca, Alaro, Binissalem, Consell, Santa Maria and Marratxi before its final destination Palma Station which is located in the heart of the City at the Plaza Espana.
Plaza Espana could not be a more ideal location, as you have many of Palmas most appreciated stores and shops nearby the station, its an easy walk down the rambling and interesting streets bypassing many shops in the older quarter of the town, down to the Borne which offers wonderful shops as Zara Home, Boss and many other designer label stores, to name a few.
On your return to catch your train back to Sa Pobla, if you’re a little early, don’t worry, there is a super Café next door to the station, with its interior designed like an old fashioned train, which is rather unique, for you to enjoy the ambience before catching your train back home.
On arrival back to Sa Pobla, you have the convenience of your car awaiting right next to the station, all you have to do, is drive back a few mins into Pollensa in time before the sun goes down, to enjoy a quick swim in your villas private pool before dinner in the evening, what nicer way ending off your enjoyed train ride down to palma earlier in the day.
It’s an enjoyable ride down to Palma, relaxing and car parking “stress free”, we feel sure you will enjoy the trip. As the time table may change without our knowledge, we do recommend prior to making the Trip you enquire with the Tourist Office for the update of time tables for the train.
We hope you enjoy our tip for the day! whether your enjoying a holiday in Pollensa at the moment, or planning to arrive soon…..
Wishing you all a nice day.
