Island hopping = not so easy unfortunately

The ferry times always favour travelling from Majorca to Menorca, the other way around means an overnight stay.

Palma Ferry if overnight to opposite end of island (mahon ) from where you are

fast ferries are all from Alcudia or Cala Rajada to Ciutadella with above overnight logistics and taxi from Magaluf to these ports will be easliy a few euros ( 100E? ) and min 1h 15mins

Well the locals do a fair bit of island hopping - But the majority fly between the two islands. I've done it myself a few times to get onward connections at PMI out of season.

Up to 10 flights a day. Return fares from 94 EUR. 35min flight with 1 hour check in. Plane is a twin turbo prop and seats approx 60. Added that Palma is the "right end" of Mallorca for Magaluf. Probably a lot easier than the ferry.

Just to add to Jons post, Span Air used to fly Mahon to Palma as well. Not sure if they still do, but worth looking at.

JTD you got those flights cheap? thought it's about 100 in season eur one way for non residents?- problem is you still end up at the wrong end of Menorca too, so its not all notmade easy. There is a big local campaign on from the locals to make this easier-you will see posters in all the bars/cafes

PS flight is definitely easier if your pocket can do it.

PS there is on sun/thurs also airberlin Mahon to Palma /and reverse which is often lower price IF they have seats left
