Why to spend your holiday in Puerto Pollensa with kids?
Before I start giving you recommendations, I have to explain you why I think Puerto Pollensa is ideal for families with kids:
- The village is not huge and everything is easy to reach by feet. So all at one hand for the family!
- It is a nice and quiet resort, nothing to compare to other resorts like Cala d´Or, Magalluf and Palmanova.
- Most likely you will have a swimming pool at your hotel or villa. However, the beach and beautiful sea are never far away!
Things to do in Puerto Pollensa with kids: beach time!
Beaches in Puerto Pollensa are wide and provided with sunbeds and parasols which you can hire.
The beach along the pinewalk is a lot smaller, but if you pass the port you will find yourself much more space. As well as water sports like canoeing, rent-a-water-bike and paddle surfing. A day of sailing in the bay is also a good idea! Children meet children and different nationalities are mixed and a great experience for them.
The costs to hire two sunbeds and a parasol at the beach is € 12,50 for a whole day.
Things to do in Puerto Pollensa with kids: playgrounds!
The seafront in Puerto Pollensa knows two playgrounds; one is situated near hotel Uyal and the other one opposite hotel Daina in the center. You will find a small park in front of the Guardia Civil where is a playground as well, the good thing here is there are trees around so children will be able to play in the shade.

Things to do in Puerto Pollensa with kids: Flora and fauna
Beaches are popular in Puerto Pollensa, but Mallorca knows a beautiful flora and fauna too. Especially when you like birdwatching, it is worth to visit the Albufera and Formentor area. You can always combine this visit with a swim in the sea, as there is always a beach nearby. The Albufera is easy to reach by local bus, busses are driving there every 15 minutes during the summer. The Formentor area knows a couple of beautiful little bays which are possible to reach just by car, the beach of Formentor you can get to by local boat or ferry from Puerto Pollensa.
Things to do in Puerto Pollensa with kids: What to do by when there is an accident?
You can never be prepared enough for an accident. When something happens at the beach or in the sea, you will find lifeguards around you in between 09:00 and 18:00 o´clock. Are you staying in an hotel, you have the reception near you who are always willing to help when you are in need of medical specialties and when you have an emergency. In Puerto Pollensa you will find a few doctors and medical services, the Tourist Office will be able to help you with relevant information. The alarm telephone number for Spain is 112.
I would recommend to always having sun cream and water with you. The temperature can be high and the sunshine can be very strong, so we have to be careful. Many shops along the sea front and in the center sell sun creams and drinks as well.
