The enchanting resort of Puerto Pollensa lies on the rugged coastline of Northern Majorca. Evoking a distinctly A-list vibe, the long horseshoe shaped stretches of sun-baked sand, lapped gently by shallow turquoise water, contrast beautifully against a backdrop of dramatic pine-covered mountain peaks.
Puerto Pollensa is unlike many of the top tourist destinations in Majorca, for the simple fact that it has retained its rustic Mediterranean charm. A pine-tree lined promenade skirts the edge of the beach overlooking the lavish marina, where quaint fishing boats belonging to the locals bob side by side with luxury yachts and catamarans. The cobbled streets are strewn with pavement cafes and bars, and the region is said to boast some of the islands top eateries.
There is a real emphasis on seclusion and relaxation in Puerto Pollensa, the resort being somewhat of a haven for couples and families looking to simply get away from it all. The stunning duo of beaches (Pollensa & Albercutx) amass to a staggering 3km of soft, practically white sand and are definitely one of the main reasons tourists return here year after year.
