Stay in Palma?

Hi all - my husband and I will be visiting Majorca for 6 nights (August 21-27) for the first time. Is it possible to just stay in Palma the whole time and just take buses to visit other parts of the island as day trips? Or is it recommended to hire a car and stay in other places for a few days at a time? Thanks!

I stay in Palma often, for a weekend, for a week and longer. I never hire a car and successfully use public transport to go all over the island eg Soller, Pollensa and Andratx and their respective ports.

In the past we’ve hired cars but as public transport routes and frequency have improved we don’t think it’s necessary any more.
