Hotels in Puerto Pollensa
In northern Majorca (or Mallorca), Spain, around six kilometres from the inland town of Pollensa, sits the small town of Puerto Pollensa (Port of Pollensa). Popular throughout the year with tourists, this wonderful old-style resort boasts a large marina which harbours leisure boats and traditional llaüts, boats used by the Mallorcans for fishing. Perfect for a quiet, relaxing break or a base to explore Mallorca, Puerto Pollensa has everything you could need, including some wonderful Puerto Pollensa hotels.
Things to do
Probably the biggest attraction of Puerto Pollensa is the beach, a beautiful golden sandy shoreline with safe, clear shallow waters. There is much to do besides lazing in the sun, and facilities for kayaking, snorkelling, sailing and other watersports are available, as well as a floating children's play area. If you are lucky, you may get a glimpse of a Canadair CL-215, a local firefighting plane, as it practises collecting and dispersing water across the bay. The beach front is paved and there are a number of shops and eateries along the length.
The main square, Plaza Miquel Capllonch, features a bronze bust of local pianist and composer Miquel Capllonch Rotger. Edged by restaurants, shops, bars and a church, it holds a market every Wednesday which fills the square with traders selling fruit, fish, clothing and local crafts.
Hikers will love the nearby Tramuntana Mountains, perfect for hiking or cycling through. Trails through the Tramuntana valleys lead to Cala Boquer and neighbouring Cala Sant Vicenc, and offer the perfect opportunity to sample the beautiful scenery that Mallorca has to offer.
While the shops in Puerto Pollensa itself are mostly tourist gift shops filled with the usual trinkets, the nearby town of Pollensa is a shopping haven. Full of little artisan craft shops and many traditional Mallorcan products, it has a beautiful ceramics shop and a market on Sundays.
Food and drink
Evening is when this sleepy little harbour town comes to life, as the restaurants in Plaza Miquel Capllonch reach their busy period. Whether you crave an exotic Indian dinner, a fresh seafood supper, traditional Mallorcan dish or a good juicy steak, there is something to suit everyone here.
Kashmir is one of two Indian restaurants in the town, and offers great value for money. Those looking to try some tasty tapas should visit La Cabana or, for a larger taste of Spanish cuisine, try Restaurant Siller. If you fancy a juicy burger and fries or fajitas, head to the family-friendly Nico's. La Llonja, on the harbour, offers fine fresh fish, seasonal dishes and lovely views of the marina from the terrace.
