Pollença is one of the most visited places in Mallorca and there are more than a few good reasons why. Located in the northern end of the island, the municipality features 4 different areas: the peaceful village of Pollença with its old town centre and cobbled streets, the small sea-side residence of Cala Sant Vicenç and its 4 beaches, the Puerto de Pollença harbour with its harbour promenade and its lively atmosphere, and finally the fantastic peninsula of Formentor with its crystal-clear waters and fine sandy beaches.
5 Plans when in Pollença:
No matter which of these areas you have decided to spend your holidays in, there is a list of to-do’s you really shouldn’t miss:
-Excursion to Cala Bóquer: you need only enjoy a simple walk (around 1 hour) and you’ll then reach a paradise-like inlet in which to disconnect and bask in the nature.
-Stopping at the Mirador de Formentor: you can reach Formentor by boat or by road. If you choose this second option, you should make a stop at the lookout point located at the highest point of the route.
-Boat outing: there are many businesses in Puerto de Pollença you can turn to before going on trips to the nicest inlets and beaches in the area, going diving, fishing, water-skiing…
-Discover Pollença: a stroll around the town’s old centre. A.S.A.T. – as simple as that! Venturing through the different squares and side-streets of the village, besides walking up to the Calvari, will all make up an experience you wouldn’t want to have let by.
-Sunset in the bay: the sunset simply must, be enjoyed in the harbour of Puerto Pollença. On its harbour walk, whether you’re enjoying a leisurely unhurried walk or sitting on one of its countless terraces, you will be revelling in this magical moment.
And all of these plans can be made regardless of what time of year you’re visiting Pollença: you can always come back during the celebration of la Patrona of Pollença, the village festivities of La Mare de Déu del Carme in Puerto de Pollença, or the fiestas in Cala Sant Vicenç.
