Our Guide to Puerto Pollença

Pollença
Beach and Restaurant Guide
Mallorca was a favourite target for pirate attacks in the 15th and 16th centuries and Pollença suffered more than its fair share of sacking and pillaging. In 1550, however, local hero Joan Mas led fellow citizens armed with only sticks to repulse the scimitar-wielding Moorish invaders in what proved to be a decisive battle. There is a statue of Joan Mas in the gardens by Pollença’s Cloisters and every August 2nd the battle is re-enacted in the streets of the town. A sight worth seeing!
If your stay does not coincide with the battle there is still plenty to admire in Pollença. Most visitors attempt the 365 steps (one for each day of the year) up to the Calvario where the views are worth the effort. Actually there are more than 365 steps these days since the very steep street at the bottom of the original route has been turned into wide steps. The extension to the Calvario has also had the delightful side effect of creating a lovely little plaza at its base.
Pollença, is without any doubt one of the most attractive municipalities of the Island. It was one of the areas where tourism first started, being the preferred destination of painters and artists since the beginning of the century. Pollença is full of contrasts because a large part of the "Serra de Tramuntana” is situated within its municipality. With its steep mountains and its deep valleys, which in many cases end in most beautiful and lonely bays, where the blue of the sea merges with the grey of the limestone rocks and the brilliant green of the pine trees. Here the cultural and artistic life never stops. There are a lot of art galleries and beautiful handicraft shops. Throughout most of the year one can enjoy a variety of musical events, the most famous of which takes place in the Santo Domingo Cloister between July and September. Apart from the old town, the municipality of Pollença is also home to two coastal towns, the Port Of Pollença and Cala San Vicente.

Beach Guide

Formentor
A beautiful beach with golden sand and lovely views, however it can be very busy during the height of the summer. Drive into Puerto Pollença and follow the signs for Formentor (parking available at a charge). Alternatively you can take the ferry boat from Puerto Pollença to Formentor.

Cala San Vicente
Cala San Vicente has two lovely bays with beautiful clear blue waters, which is ideal for snorkelling when the sea is calm, Cala Carbo and Cala Molins. The first bay is a sandy bay with good facilities (restaurants and sun loungers) and is manned by a lifeguard. If you continue up the windy road you will come to the second bay that is usually a little quieter.

Puerto Pollença
A very long beach, stretching nearly all the way from Puerto Pollença to Port d’ Alcudia. It is a sheltered, gently sloping sandy beach with many excellent water sports
available. This beach is very popular and can become crowded, but it is possible to find a quieter spot if you head along the Puerto Pollença road towards Port d’ Alcudia.

Cala Mesquida
Situated in the North East coast, Cala Mesquida has beautiful crystal blue water. Take the road to Alcudia, and then follow Ca’n Picafort heading for Arta. At Arta take the road signposted for Capdepera – from here the beach is a short drive.
