Mallorcan look: your outfit in the island

The endless amount of things we still have to learn from our grandparents! The recipe for perfect croquettes, how to choose a good watermelon, the secret to a happy marriage… There are many lessons to be learned from our elder and one of them is how we should dress to avoid suffocating in Mallorca’s summer heat: the traditional clothing and accessories of the Mediterranean are perfectly suited to the climate and lifestyle. Besides also being a style that never goes out of fashion and that comes back every summer!

5 pieces of clothing for dressing like a true Mallorcan:

  • Capell: You can opt for the traditional one from Mallorca or for hats from other places in the world, such as habanero hats, or even baseball caps but the important part is that you protect your head from the solar radiation.

                    • Baggy cotton shirt: Let yourself be inspired by Ibiza’s Aldib fashion or by the traditional Mallorcan style roba de llengos, and above all try to always wear wide, airy cotton clothing that breathes well and thereby protects you from the hot temperatures.

 

 

      • Aubarques or sabates de espart: Although the aubarques shoe is from Menorca, a real Mallorquín person will wear them as if they were from his own island, since, just like the sabates d’espart they’re cool, protect your foot in summer and are very comfortable.

 

 

  • Swimsuit/bikini always near and handy: If one thing is really essential when you’re in Mallorca, it’s to always have your bathing suit available to you can enjoy a splash or a dive into mallorcan waters whenever you feel like one.
  • Senalla: It’s the perfect accessory for carrying everything you need! They come in larger and in smaller sizes, with a zipper or without, with long or short handles… And the best of all is, they’re perfect for both men and women.

Plans in Puerto Pollensa you cannot miss! (II)

Don’t know what to do in Pollença to get even more fun and enjoyment out of your holidays? Here we recommend 5 plans in Puerto Pollensa to enjoy your holidays:

5 plans in Puerto Pollensa you cannot miss during your holidays:

1. Visit Pollensa old town:

Located just 7km from the Port of Pollença lies the town of Pollensa: an ideal place to stop off and see. Its old town centre is a historical quarter filled with cobbled side-streets, monuments, landmarks and famous buildings and places in which to let yourself be soothed by the relaxing atmosphere.

 

2. Enjoy a sunset with seaviews!

Although from the beach of Puerto de Pollensa you can’t see the sun setting on the horizon (hidden by the mountains), one can enjoy the different colours taken on by the sunlight over the bay of Pollensa.

The best way to enjoy these views is from a restaurant terrace, we recommend you try Casa Vila Di Mare.

 

3. Discover an unspoild cave!

The Puerto de Pollensa beach is perfect for enjoying your holidays: it has chiringuito beach bars, sunbeds and kids’ playgrounds. But sometimes it’s best to enjoy the peace and quiet of a virgin cala inlet…

Get your rucksack ready with a picnic, drink, sun cream and a towel, and head towards any of the unspoilt beaches awaiting in the area around the Port of Pollença.

Tricks to “resist” climate in Pollensa

In the summer time, the climate in Pollensa is warm, sunny, dry and with little variation between day and night-time temperatures. The average temperature in summer is 20.6ºC but the highest reach 30 degrees, and occasionally these are exceeded during those fearsome heat waves. While the minimums don’t drop below 14ºC.

With 279 sunny days per year and 14 hours of sun each day in the summer, our climate in Pollensa is especially sunny: allowing us to appreciate the long days and do some tanning on the beach.

Tricks to “resist” climate in Pollença

Here we bring you 5 easy tricks to resist the warm, sunny and dry climate in Pollensa:

Climate in Pollensa Mallorca tricks warm
Maybe one of the best tricks to “resist” climate in Pollensa is to dive into Puerto Pollensa shore

1. Hydration, hydration, hydration:

Just as the mantra in real estate is “location, location, location” during the summer in Mallorca, it’s all about hydration. Make sure to drink plenty of water, especially important for children and the elderly.

2. Use sun cream

One of the worst feelings in the world is having sunburn all over your body. You can ask a dermatologist or pharmacist to recommend the protection factor that is best for your own skin type, should you have any doubts.

3. Avoid the worst hours of sun

During the middle of the day (from around 11am to 3pm) are the hours with the greatest heat intensity and solar radiation: avoid being out in the sun so you don’t get burned or get a bout of heat stroke. If you can’t avoid it, remember point number 1.

4. “S’embat” a natural regulator of climate in Pollença

The sea breeze that blows in coastal areas is known in Mallorca as s’embat – it is the ideal temperature regulator: make the most of it and let it refresh you!

5. Local wisdom

Hand-held fans for when there’s no wind blowing, pitchers and flasks to keep the drinks cool, staying “a l’ombra” (in the shade), wearing baggy cotton clothing in the aldib style, white-washed houses… The people of Mallorca have been dealing with the drought and hot Mediterranean climate for a long time and have adapted to it marvellously.

Summer holidays in Puerto Pollensa

Celebrating the good weather, celebrating good company, celebrating life. If you’re in Puerto de Pollensa during the summertime, there’s something to celebrate each and every day. But although there’s always something to celebrate that doesn’t mean that every day is an official holiday in Port de Pollença. When are the town’s summer holidays held and how are they best enjoyed?

At JS Properties we explain everything, where and when the summer holidays take place in Port de Pollença, Pollença, Cala Sant Vicenç and Alcudia:

Summer holidays in Puerto Pollensa

In the Port of Pollença two festivites are held during the summer: Sant Pere and the Mare de Déu del Carme, both very much related to the seafaring tradition of the dock, “Eu Moll”.

Saint Peter is the patron saint of fishermen and in the past he even came to be that of Puerto Pollensa. Around the 29th of June, this summer festival takes place, which for several days fills the old dock, Moll Vell with market stalls, traditional dances, habanera contradanzas and tributes to the marine tradition of Port de Pollença.

The Mare de Déu del Carme (16th of July) is the patron saint of Port de Pollença and for an entire week the “molleros” dock men celebrate it with a broad variety of acts, to which tourists and the curious are always welcome. Over the course of a week, fairs and festivities, concerts, sporting events and a long string of others, fill the town’s calendar. The final hallmark event takes place on Sunday with a correfoc “fire-run” through the village and fireworks on the beach.

Alcudia: a modern city full of history

In Mallorca’s northern region, an in the bays of Pollença and Alcudia, we find a small city full of life, historical monuments and many things to discover. This is Alcudia, which along with its harbour stands as one of the most vibrant destinations in Mallorca, thanks to its Roman ruins, its historic walled town-centre, and its beach surrounded by hotels and attractions for tourists seeking a great time during their holidays.

·Pollentia: The Roman ruins of Pollentia embody the importance that the area had after the conquest of Mallorca by the romans in the year 123 bc.

·Walled quarter: The medieval city wall of Alcudia surrounds the city’s old town-centre, today yielding a marvellous ensemble of back-streets in which to stroll and shop in its numerous little shops, while also making the most of its weekly Sunday market.

·Playa de Alcudia: The area connecting Puerto de Alcudia and the Playas de Muro is the most modern of all: built in the 70s and 80s it is brimming with hotels, tourist attractions as well as pubs and discos in which to “really get your summer on”.

What to do in Alcudia?

The great appeal of Alcudia is that if you spend your summer holidays here, you’ll never have to ask yourself “so what do we I now?”, as you’ll always have something to do:

Playa de Alcudia is one of the largest in the región and is made up of an endless tract of sand with sunbeds, parasols, and a great amount of water sports companies.

The beach of Alcudia is shallow so it is perfect for families with children. Photo from platgesdebalears.com

In the area of Puerto de Alcudia you can find anything from minigolfs to a wakepark. Also, at night it becomes a party area.

Alcudia’s rich history means you have an enormous range of historical sites and monuments to visit. Besides also, a wide array of further cultural options.

It seems impossible that in a place so filled with things to do, one would have the option to relax, but that’s just how it is: in Alcudia there are many ideal places for switching off.

Visit Formentor: visit the paradise

The Formentor peninsula is one of the most beautiful places in Pollença and Mallorca, and visiting it is always a pleasure. To get to Formentor, you can take the road or one of the boats that leave the dock, locally called “Muelle Nuevo” or “Moll Nou”.

Snorkeling: swim with fishes!

Cala Sant Vicenç is also the ideal spot to enjoy some snorkelling: with a pair of goggles, a tube and some flipper fins you’ll be able to revel in watching the sea-life that hides beneath its crystal-clear waters.

Market day: buy local products

Visiting the local market stalls is a pleasure even when not out shopping for anything. This is why we recommend that you visit them: market day in Port de Pollença is every Wednesday, while in Alcudia and Pollença it is on Sundays.

Visiting the Pollença’s market is one of the best plans for a Sunday morning!
