The most northerly town on the Balearic island of Majorca, Puerto Pollensa is a relatively small resort which has retained its traditional character, unlike some of the other resorts in the Balearics. Spending your holidays in Puerto Pollensa is an ideal choice if you want to enjoy both modern amenities and traditional charm. The hotels and apartments here are generally of good quality, so even when picking up package holiday deals there is no need to worry about the standard of the accommodation that awaits you.
The beach here is one of the finest on the island; a sheltered and wide horseshoe shaped bay with fine white sand and crystal clear emerald water. The impressive Tramuntana Mountains provide the backdrop to this attractive town, offering hiking opportunities for more experienced walkers. However, there are also plenty of gentler, yet equally scenic, walks to enjoy, such as the Pine Walk that runs around the town’s coastline. You should also try to explore the ruins of the city of Bocchoris, a pre-Roman settlement that is thought to be one of the oldest in Majorca. A leisurely morning can be spent at Puerto Pollensa’s weekly market, which is held in the main square. It is a great place to pick up a variety of souvenirs, with traders dealing in fruit, clothing, and local crafts to name just a few things.
There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from here, and trying the fresh seafood is an absolute must. The fish restaurants here are widely regarded as the best on the island. Package holidays in Puerto Pollensa are readily snapped up by families and couples looking for a quiet place to enjoy a week in the sun. The atmosphere here is perhaps not so well suited to singles looking for a Club 18-30 holidays, so do bear that in mind if nightlife is a priority.
