The sands here are backed by mountains and sheltered in a horseshoe bay. Make your way to the warm and inviting Mediterranean waters, and you can watch the lapping waves from the many waterfront bars and restaurants. Combined, they’re a big reason why Puerto Pollensa’s so popular.
Bring comfortable walking shoes and take full advantage of Puerto Pollensa’s position not far from the Formentor peninsula. If you want to take in the sights of the island, join eager hikers on the 3km walk through the Boquer Valley to the ocean on the other side.
