Pollenca tourist information

Port de Pollenca

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, cafe-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.

This early morning boat tour from Port de Pollenca takes you to the waters off the north of Majorca in search of dolphins. And you'll do so in style aboard the stunning Robinson catamaran, which has a net for relaxing on and seeing the sea up close. There are also great coastal views to enjoy, too.

Pollenca

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!

Plaça Major

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.
