Holidays in Puerto Pollensa

Although Majorca is 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!

Temperature: 9-25 °C

Puerto Pollensa’s warm, Mediterranean climate makes it a superb holiday destination at any time of year.

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 is blessed with some of the best beaches in Majorca, perfect for lazing around or family holidays with the kids. You’ll find soft, golden sands, crystal-clear waters, and a stunning, mountainous backdrop. Puerto Pollensa beach is close to the marina and peppered with beachside bars and cafés. Nearby, you’ll find Playa de Llenaire, which has served as an inspiration for poets and painters for hundreds of years. The exclusive Cala Formentor beach offers a laid-back atmosphere and the chance to spot an off-duty celeb or two, while the secluded Cala Boquer beach is where you go for spectacular views and a glimpse of the Sierra de Cavall Bernat; a mountain that casts a shadow in the shape of a horse. 

If you’re looking for relaxing activities in Puerto Pollensa, why not top up your tan on an organised boat trip? There are several boat excursions that run throughout the day. Opt for a glass-bottomed boat trip for stunning views of Puerto Pollensa’s exotic underwater life, or choose a longer Pollensa Bay cruise for the chance to swim, fish and snorkel. Don't forget your cameras, because the stunning Mal Pas and La Victoria coves are well worth a picture or two!

Don’t leave Puerto Pollensa without enjoying an evening meal by the marina. From fresh seafood to grilled meat dishes, your holiday to Puerto Pollensa wouldn’t be complete without sampling some traditional Majorcan cuisine. Sopas mallorquinas, (thick vegetable broth) and arroz brut (Majorcan paella) are both popular Majorcan choices. Wash your food down with a glass of fino, a traditional, dry sherry. There’s an outstanding range of restaurant throughout the town, ranging from budget-friendly tavernas, to upmarket, fine-dining restaurants, serving food from almost every corner of the globe. However, it’s the local food that’s the star of the show. For a real treat, head into the Old Town for some of the best tapas on the island.
