You can buy a Bonobus card which you top up when you need to and you'll save between 30% and 50% on tickets.
There's a two-route public tram system throughout the island and taking it means you can see Majorca's beautiful landscape whizz past your window.

Cycling is popular in Majorca, due to the island's kilometres of coastal paths and there are plenty of bikes routes to follow. Because of the number of cyclists around, there are lots of places to hire from, with pretty good deals. A standard city bike will set you back about €10-€15 per day, while a higher-range road bike costs around €20-€30.
Take an excursion with a guided tour group to see more of the island and learn about its history.
