Pollensais a small town of 15,000 inhabitants located north of the island of Mallorca and is considered one of the most beautiful corners of the Balearic Islands. It is located 58 km from Palma de Mallorca and has an international airport. It borders the towns of Alcudia, Sa Pobla, Campanet and Escorca.
The friendliness of its people, the richness of its gastronomy, its stunning coastline with paradisiacal beaches and coves, combined with the beauty of a typical Majorcan town full of history and tradition, make Pollensa one of the main destinations of Mallorca.
A unique and natural place steeped in history. Here passed Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans and Muslims finally giving way to the Catalans who conquered this land to stay.
The town of Pollensa is located inland, 13 km from the coast; this is because the first inhabitants of the municipality built it far away from the constant danger of attacks by pirates and privateers. On the coast, we find Cala San Vicenç, Formentor and Port de Pollença,the latter being the tourist center of the area with a large tourist infrastructure, long sandy beaches, holding a lovely promenade, a variety of restaurants and a wide leisure and entertainment offering that attracts thousands of tourists every year.
In its municipality, we find up to 16 beautiful beaches very different from one another but with a common denominator: transparent and clear waters of the north of the island.
In the Port of Pollença we can find, for example, PlayaLlenaire, Port de Pollença or Playa Albercuix that are the typical urban beaches which are long with fine sand, of high occupancy and with good and modern facilities. Further north, near Cabo de Formentor we can enjoy CalaMurta, CalaenFeliu, CalaGossalba o CalaFiguera which are places of great natural beauty, recommended for lovers of peace as they are wilder beaches combining stones and sand. The waters are especially spectacular in this area, clear water, and crystal clear turquoise sea bottoms of great biological wealth. It is no wonder that through these lands passed illustrious names as Winston Churchill, Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly, attracted by the grandeur and beauty of this territory.
Also is noteworthy to mention the area of Cala San Vicençwhere there are five beautiful coves like CalaBarques, Cala Clara, El Maressar, CalaMolins and Cala Carbo.
But Pollensais much more than a sun and beach destination since this city breathes history on all four sides and it shows every corner of the region with many monuments, historic buildings and museums that the city offers. Capilla del Calvario, el Convento de Santo Domingo, el Puig Maria or Castillo del Rey are part of the historical heritage of the city.
Nature lovers will enjoy the Sierra de Tramuntana, a mountain range 90 km long, swooping abruptly to the sea at Cabo de Formentor creating cliffs, canyons, beaches and coves of great beauty. You can make different routes to enjoy this spectacular scenery through the Mirador de Mal Pas, the TalaiaAlbercuitx or the faro.
