Puerto Pollensa Holidays

Show on Map

Family holidays by the beach have an old Majorca feel in Puerto Pollensa.

Beach escape

The sandy beach here is backed by mountains and sheltered in a horseshoe bay. That means the warm Mediterranean waters are calm and inviting, and you can watch the lapping waves from any one of dozens of waterfront bars and restaurants. Combined, they’re a big reason why lots of families come here every year looking for some peace and quiet by the sea.

Days spent strolling

Bring comfortable walking shoes and take full advantage of Puerto Pollensa’s location not far from the Formentor peninsula. If you want to take in the sights of the island, join other hikers on the 3km walk through the Boquer Valley to the ocean on the other side – look out for the blue rock thrushes that call this place home. Back in town, you can also take in the Pine Walk promenade that runs along the water and is – as the name suggests – lined by pine trees.

Local markets and medieval history

Get a feel for old Majorca by dropping into the weekly market. You can pick up a souvenir for those back home, or get some local ingredients for tea that night. If you’re after a bit of history, jump on the bus for the 15-minute ride to Alcudia and take a tour of this medieval old town, hemmed in by a still-standing 14th-century wall.

Insider Tip

While Puerto Pollensa is sheltered from the wind, it can get blustery around the coast making it the perfect spot to try your hand at windsurfing, or even kitesurfing.

Best beaches

On either side of the marina you’ll find beautiful sandy beaches. North of the marina is the quieter, family-friendly Albercutx Beach. To the south, you’ll find Pollensa Beach and the bars and restaurants that line the prom. Whether that counts as one big beach or two smaller ones, you’re bound to find a spot to take in the sun.

Top sights

One of the first things you’ll spot in this gorgeous, laid back town is the bustling marina filled with luxury yachts. It’s a classy spot that often attracts an A-list crowd, and it’s not far from the famous Pine Walk. There you can take a relaxed stroll down the tree-lined cobbled path, with the sea on one side and restaurants in old stone houses on the other.

Out and about

Rent a boat for the day at the marina, or just take a seat on one of the glass-bottomed boat tours. For cyclists, there’s an 8km bike path to Alcudia which runs along the sea, while the Serra de Tramuntana mountains are nearby for more serious rides – you might even spot riders from one of the pro cycling teams that train here. Head to the nearby Formentor peninsula for dramatic views across coastline, cliffs and valleys.

Eating and drinking

Head to the Pine Walk and take your pick from a line-up of restaurants either on the path or just off of it. You’ll find authentic Majorcan cuisine as well as offerings with an international spread. Mix it up with a trip to the Plaça Miguel Capllonch – on 3 sides of the square you’ll find restaurants and bars, all looking in on a wide-open square and the bust of composer Miguel Capllonch himself.

Shopping

The main square Plaça Miguel Capllonch is where you’ll do most of your shopping. There are souvenir shops here to pick up local handicrafts 7 days a week. Every Wednesday the square fills up with even more market sellers showing off trinkets, art and jewellery, alongside vendors offering up local food and drinks.

Nightlife

Puerto Pollensa is pretty laid back, so the nightlife centres on chilled out bars along Pine Walk, in the main square or around the marina. For something a little livelier, jump in a taxi and head to Alcudia – it’s about 15 minutes’ ride to the clubs and bars over there.
