Lying on the north coast of Majorca, Puerto Pollensa is quieter and more laidback than its neighbouring resorts. The town was originally a fishing village until the tourism boom but it still manages to maintain its old time tradition and charm today. Whether you’re travelling as a couple or as a family with younger children, if you’re looking for a relaxing escape with a chilled out atmosphere, sandy beaches and amazing scenery, Puerto Pollensa is a great choice.

Great for explorers
There are many walking tracks in Puerto Pollensa, varying in difficulty and terrain. If you’re up for a bit of a challenge, then head for the Boquer Valley. Although the walk isn’t too strenuous, there are some rocky parts to tackle. Make your way up steep inclines and stony trails, and you’ll be greeted with magnificent Mediterranean views of the surrounding area and the sea below. If you like to take things at a more leisurely pace, take a stroll along The Pine Walk. It connects the main areas of Puerto Pollensa together so it’s the best way to get around. Under the shade of the pine trees that line the walk, you’ll be able to enjoy the views of the beautiful beaches and mountains on this easier walk.

Pretty beaches
From small bays to long stretches, charming Puerto Pollensa has a good selection of beaches for you to relax on. One of the most popular beaches is the main Port de Pollensa Beach, it’s the biggest in the area. There are many sunloungers to hire and plenty of watersports on offer. D’Albercuix beach by The Pine Walk is another favourite amongst tourists, it’s a quiet beach where you can spend time taking in the scenery and making the most of the peaceful atmosphere. Little kids will be happy as the water is shallow enough for them to splash about in and the sand is ideal for building sandcastles.
