Santa Maria del Camí is exceptionally well-located. At the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, and just 14 kilometres from Palma, it has good communications with all points of Mallorca. The municipality occupies 38 square kilometres of the area called Es Raiguer. This region of Mallorca is situated in the centre-north of the island, and runs parallel to the Serra de Tramuntana, from Marratxí to Sa Pobla. In geography, a “raiguer” is a piedmont plain. It lies along the foot of the mountain range, between that and the central plain (Pla) of Mallorca.
Getting here by road
Santa Maria has very good communications with the neighbouring municipalities and with the island capital, via the Ma-13a (the old Inca road) and the MA-13 motorway (Junction 12) which connects Palma with Alcúdia. The transfer from Son Sant Joan airport takes about 20 minutes.
Getting here by train
The Palma-Manacor railway line has a stopping point at Santa Maria station, in Sant Antoni Street, which is fortunate for the village as it provides an additional mode of transport. The train that connects up Palma, Inca and Manacor stops at Santa Maria, the journey time between Palma and Santa Maria being just 15 minutes. A train passes through Santa Maria every 20 minutes in both directions (towards Palma and towards Sa Pobla/Manacor).
Getting here by bus
Santa Maria is on two bus routes, stopping in Plaça Hostals (square):
