Although Majorca's well known for its vibrant nightlife and incredible club scene, Puerto Pollensa is one of the quieter resorts in the Balearics. With golden-sanded beaches, pine-fringed coves and a horseshoe-shaped bay, Puerto Pollensa holidays are ideal for families and couples alike. Take your holiday in February and you can enjoy all the sights, sounds and smells at the annual carnival. Expect floats, spectacular costumes, live music, and lip-smacking Spanish food!
Things to do
Although Puerto Pollensa is geared to a more relaxing kind of holiday, there’s still plenty to see and do. The jewel in the crown is the harbour, where you can take a trip on a glass-bottomed boat and see the stunning, submarine world below, while still catching some sunshine! Hop on a bus to Pollensa Old Town and you’ll find quirky shops and street stalls tucked away in twisting backstreets. With plenty of cafés, relaxing with a glass of local fino (a type of sherry) is almost mandatory or, for a change of scenery, take a local bus to nearby Palma. As the sun starts to set, take a stroll along the famous perfumed Pine Walk, and enjoy a quiet cocktail on the beach.
Puerto Pollensa’s warm, Mediterranean climate makes it a superb holiday destination at any time of year.
Approximately two hours to Palma de Mallorca airport.
