ENJOY THE PEACE & TRANQUILITY OF PORT DE POLLENCA
Port De Pollenca is full of charm, character and Spanish authenticity. This former fishing village is simply timeless.
Located in the north of the island, Port De Pollenca nestles in the upper most corner of the Bay Of Pollenca (Bahia De Pollenca). Its geography provides a stunning backdrop. The Serra De Tramuntana Mountains (a UNESCO World Heritage site) stand tall and proud behind the resort. These mountains help to protect the resort from prevailing northern winds.
Lined with over one and a half kilometres of golden sand, an eclectic array of watercraft can be found moored in the calm waters . The ‘llaüts’ - traditional Mallorcan fishing boats, are still used by the locals to this day. The marina boasts a collection of power craft and super yachts.
In terms of gastronomy, there is a selection of food to suit every palate. Many of the restaurants and hotels have stood the test of time. They remain in - and run by the local families and have existed since the 1940’s when tourism started to creep in to the bay.
Unlike other Spanish resorts, that have suffered from over development the port looks and feels as authentic as it did 40 years ago. It remains a firm family favourite. This is due to its calm waters and distinct lack of nightclubs. It also attracts activity seekers, who can sail, paddle, swim cycle or walk to their hearts content.
It is a huge draw for the creatives as well. The Port can count writer Agatha Christie and artists such as Boveri and Camarasa amongst its more famous visitors and residents.
If you have a love for the ocean and water based activities, there are a multitude of options available to you. Whatever pace you like to take things, there will be something to suit. Take a leisurely boat trip with The Tudor Dawn. Alternatively, if you would like to flex your flippers, why not channel your inner mermaid or merman. The team at Tramuntana Diving can take you to some of the most amazing SCUBA diving spots on the island. Equally, if you want to feel the true wonderment of peace and inner calm Freedive Mallorca will be able to teach you the ancient art of free-diving.
