Why You Should Stay in Pollensa
A laid back resort town in northern Mallorca has attracted tourists and immigrants for a century. At one time this sleepy fishing port didn’t see much activity. Now a family friendly beach town with many things to discover! With its beautiful backdrop of mountains and sun soaked sea, Puerto Pollensa is the place to spend your holiday. Building regulations do not allow tall buildings on the beach, so the view is just golden sand that stretches as far as the eye can see. Cafes, restaurants and pine trees line the beach to offer a rest from the sun.
One of the best experiences
First thing when planning a trip to the beautiful port of Pollensa is to not waste the wonderful experience of the port on an average hotel. Holiday villas near Pollensa are a must do to get the full experience! Your own private home for all the friends and family to enjoy! Lounge by the private pool or have a bbq dinner party with your own private chef in the outdoor dining room. If you can dream it, you can do it, and the Villa manager will be more than happy to work with you to arrange it.
Highlights to visit
The most attractive thing to do here is to watch the sunset from the scenic mountain top vantage point of the old watchtower.
If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, then try a drive up the winding road to Cap d’Formentor. At the top you will discover serene stretching views of the entire bay.
Cycling here is a big part of the tourist market. Mallorca and Port de Pollensa are one of the main year-round cycling centres. Many professional cyclists train here, it’s that good.
Take a walk with Agatha Christie along the pine lined bay. In the nineteen thirties she did just that and was inspired to write Problems at Pollensa Bay.
If you fancy a hike then the Boquer Valley walk will lead you on a journey of breathtaking scenery and will terminate at a remote cove where local wildlife is plenty. Many birds here, like black vultures and Eleonora’s falcons are rare in the rest of Europe.
An hour and a half from Port de Pollensa is the monastery. It feels like a long route, but a rewarding one due to the incredible views of the iconic landscape and unspoiled nature.
Pollensa’s charming seafront shops are tailored for holiday makers offering the cutest of souvenirs and bobbles. However the smaller streets behind the beachfront boulevard are really special as well. Special Brazilian gems, rare German books and Spanish antiques make this a veritable portobello road. Anything and everything a chap can behold.
If one is into a little more challenge in their day then Golf Pollensa, a nine-hole course geared to the casual golfer is what you need. Or for alarming views and a more challenging, pro level, course the 18-hole Alcanada, near Alcúdia is ready and waiting for that hole in one.
