Port de Pollenca
Pollenca is a charming town located in the north of the island of Majorca, Spain. Known for its picturesque streets, historical monuments, and lively atmosphere, Pollenca is a popular destination for both tourists and locals alike.
One of the town’s main attractions is the picturesque port of Pollenca, which is located just a short walk from the town center. The port is a hub of activity, with a variety of boats and yachts coming and going, and plenty of restaurants and bars lining the waterfront. Visitors can enjoy a stroll along the promenade, take a boat tour of the surrounding coastline, or simply relax and soak up the Mediterranean atmosphere.
Located within a horseshoe shaped bay with great sea views and a mountain backdrop, this family-friendly tourist resort of Port de Pollenca was once a fishing village & still features a large marina.
Entrancing views over to the jagged formations of the Formentor peninsula, the display of traditional llaüts (Mallorcan fishing boats), prohibitive building regulations and long swathes of sandy beach make the port very attractive and faithful visitors return to the resort time and time again.
The marina, café-lined promenade and long arc of sand provides an appealing base for families and water-sports enthusiasts. Well protected from strong winds, it is an ideal location for a seaside holiday.
Just a few kilometres from Port de Pollenca is the enchanting Mallorcan town of Pollenca with attractive narrow streets and ancient blonde stone 17th and 18th century houses.
With an impressive main square lined with cafés, restaurants and bars, the town is a major draw for tasteful visitors and has always been very popular with artists, writers and musicians. An escape from the busy beach resorts, this tranquil town provides a laid-back & cultural experience.
The market, every Sunday, is within the main square and cannot be missed, with its best fruit and veg and handcrafted items available for purchase. The atmosphere here is also at its best!
The main square, Plaça Major is dominated by the Mare de Deu dels Angels church dating back to the 18th century and hosts one of Mallorca’s best Sunday markets. The market attracts people from all over the island and of different nationalities.
As you would expect from a main square, there are many cafés where you can join the locals for a café con leche and a bite to eat. Afterwards, take a walk through the town and discover the important sights such as Pont Romà (Roman bridge) on the edge of town or Calvari church with its ancient wooden cross and views of Puig de Maria by climbing the 365 steps (one for each day of the year). The walk up the steps is lined with cypress trees and the view at the top is stunning.
Things to do
Other attractions include the beautiful Convent and Cloister of Sant Domingo built between 1588 and 1616 and the Santuari del Puig de Maria, a 330m high hillock on which the oldest monastery in Mallorca sits.
Pollenca is the ideal base for hiking and cycling due to its proximity to the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, which forms the backbone of the north-west of Mallorca. It is also a very popular tourist destination for those who prefer a villa holiday with many exceptional villas available for rent.
Overall, Pollenca is a charming town with a rich history, a lively atmosphere and plenty of things to see and do. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing beach holiday, a cultural trip or an active adventure, Pollenca is a great destination to consider.
