Puerto Pollenca, Mallorca

Puerto Pollenca Villas

With fabulous white sand beaches stretching around a huge sweep of bay, sheltered by the wild and rugged headland of Cabo Formentor, Puerto Pollenca magically retains an unruffled, leisurely atmosphere reminiscent of bygone days, when it was just a small fishing port. A remarkable feature of the town and one that lingers long in the memory, is its elegant tree lined promenade fringed by shops, restaurants and open air cafes, where a lazy stroll in the evening soon becomes something of a ritual and pleasantly sharpens the appetite.

For the more active, there’s naturally a wide choice of water sports available as well as horse riding, tennis and golf and, if you take a trip across the headland to the nearby seaside village of Cala San Vicente, you’ll find a little rocky cove for snorkelling and two lovely sandy bays. Inland, the mediaeval town of Pollenca, with its narrow cobbled streets and tapas bars around the square is certainly worth a visit, whilst the utterly unspoilt countryside offers a wealth of magnificent scenery and in springtime plays host to many migratory birds from Africa.
