Yes, flying is faster, or should we say flying used to be faster, however now you often spend 8-9 hours doing a 2-hours flight, when you count all the tiresome waiting in lines, security checkups and the transport to and from the airport, into the equation.
Flying is without doubt still faster than catching a ferry, but the service, the comfort, the space, the entertainment and the whole experience you get on a sea crossing, puts at least the cheap flights to shame.
The most popular destination is still Mallorca, one of the Balearic islands, which in spite of the recession and Spain’s financial bank disaster, have seen a 20% increase in visitors during the summer.
Especially Alcudia in the North of the island is a magnet, drawing in tourists in huge numbers. The Spanish ferry route from Barcelona to Alcudia departs 9 times a week and the sea crossing is 5 hours and 30 minutes on the beautiful, blue Mediterranean Sea.
Palma de Mallorca is however the biggest ferry port in Mallorca with 44 weekly sailings from mainland Spain, leaving from Barcelona, Denia and Valencia.
Tenerife in the Canary Islands is the second most popular island and if you want to combine a holiday in the Canaries with a sea-journey head down to Cadiz in southern Spain and catch the weekly ferry to Santa Cruz de Tenerife. From there you can enjoy a 2 and a half days mini cruise along the west coast of Africa, passing Casablanca on your way, down to the Canary Islands, which are blessed with summer all year round.
