And read here how to choose your accommodation in Puerto Pollensa.

Once you’ve dropped your bags off and freshened up, it’s time to do a bit of investigating: take a stroll along the seafront and enjoy the wonderful view of Pollensa Bay; enjoy the Pine Walk, stopping for a refreshing beer or ice cream at one of the many terrace cafes; or if you feel like it, hop on public bus line 2 and journey just 10 minutes to the old town of Alcudia where you can enjoy the medieval walls and old atmosphere of this ancient capital of Mallorca.

If you happen to arrive early on Friday morning or on Thursday night, don’t miss the Rural Mallorca day trip only on a Friday.

Start with a lazy breakfast just whenever you wake up.

And enjoy the breath-taking scenery of the dramatic northern coastline.
2 hours boat trip in the bay of Puerto Pollensa and of course the 30min boat trip to the beach of formentor.

Then relax under the stars to a wonderful meal at a local restaurant. We recommend you try Guru.
