It's the perfect place to chill out by enjoying quiet days in the sun and relaxing evenings in traditional restaurants...
The largest of Spain's Balearic Islands, Majorca is lapped by the Mediterranean Sea and bakes in sunshine for a good part of the year. Once you arrive there, your first view of sleepy Puerto Pollensa is likely to be dominated by the mountains that form a cradle for the resort, creating a beautiful frame for your beach escapades. It is this dramatic backdrop that makes it one of the prettiest resorts on the island.
Families in particular love the resort. Children are welcome everywhere, and the gently shelving sands and safe, shallow waters are perfect for little ones to play in. More active types, meanwhile, will appreciate the selection of water sports on offer in certain sections of the bay, while those keen to see more of Majorca's beauty spots can take boat trips to local treasures such as Caribbean-like Formentor.
Behind the palm trees of the seafront promenade, there are also plenty of restaurants, with many dishing up fresh fish, as well as a handful of bars. What's more, the hotels and self-catering accommodation in the resort are generally of a high standard, meaning that Puerto Pollensa holidays appeal to all kinds of holidaymakers, whether on a budget or not. Those seeking a greater range of nightlife options, however, may well prefer the livelier resort of Alcudia, which also draws visitors to the northern shores of Majorca.
Flights from the UK to Palma Airport (PMI) take about two and a half hours.
