Pollenca is located in the north of the island, in the middle of the Tramuntana mountains. The village is known for its Mallorcan flair and is probably one of the most beautiful places on Mallorca. An enchanting landscape where sea and mountains unite. Very well known is the Calvary Mountain, a popular excursion destination, accessible by climbing 365 steps. The beautiful old town with its narrow, winding streets is best explored on foot. The best day to do this is definitely Sunday, market day, when, in addition to the numerous cafés and bars, many beautiful market stalls invite you to stroll and wander.
The beautiful bay of Puerto Pollença with its sandy beaches and restaurants or tapas bars is only a few minutes away by car. The bay offers several kilometres of long fine sandy beaches and an excursion to the offshore peninsula of Formentor is particularly recommended. Due to the influx of tourists in recent years, access to the lighthouse at the end of the island is extremely regulated in summer, but even the view from the first vantage point on the way to the cape is worth the trip and one enjoys a spectacular view.
In Pollença you can find a variety of restaurants with local, Mediterranean and international cuisine. The gorgeous 5* Hotel Son Brull & Spa, a former monastery, is located just a few minutes from the village of Pollensa and offers an excellent restaurant 365 as well as an inviting spa and wellness area. For all barbecue fans, we recommend the restaurant La Braseria in Pollensa! Thanks to the Josper charcoal oven, the meat is cooked to perfection garnished with high-quality ingredients from the island. Fair prices and a very friendly service are also a given. For all friends of Italian-Mediterranean cuisine, the Q11 in the old town of Pollensa is convincing. But the popular Cantonet, with its beautiful, quiet courtyard, is also worth a visit and also offers classic Italian cuisine.
High up in the north of Mallorca, it is still relatively quiet. Visitors to the Golf Pollenca course in particular are thrilled by this tranquillity. You won’t find any large hotels, streams of tourists or aircraft noise here. The greens and fairways are very varied and many hundreds of old olive trees adorn the landscape of the 9-hole golf course. If you visit Pollenca, you should definitely walk up the 365 steps to the top of Calvary. Each step symbolises a day of the year. It is strenuous but the view of Alcudia and the Tramuntana mountains is worth every effort. There is a small hermitage on Calvary, built at the end of the 18th century. Another highlight is, of course, the water sports in Pollensa. Surfing at its best at one of the best spots in Europe with ideal wind conditions. Inside the sheltered bay, beginners enjoy safe, protected conditions, while further out, stronger winds and waves bring the challenge, suitable for advanced and experienced sailors and surfers.
Pollensa is located in the north of Mallorca and can be reached via the motorway in about 45 minutes. Port de Pollença is the harbour of the town of Pollença, which lies somewhat in the interior of the island, and has developed over the years into one of the tourist centres on Mallorca’s north coast. Port de Pollença is about seven kilometres from Pollença. There are many nice cafés and restaurants along the sea promenade and surfers and kite surfers in particular often come to this area because of the wind conditions. From there, the Formentor peninsula stretches far into the Mediterranean. Cap Formentor is the northernmost point of the island.
