Located on the northwest coast of the island of Majorca, approximately 58 km from the capital Palma de Mallorca, Puerto Pollenca really isn't a bad journey. Enjoy the hour and a half drive across the island from the Son Sant Joan International airport to your hotel in Puerto Pollenca, and use the time to pick out all the sights you would like to visit during your stay. You can get around with freedom from public transport schedules with a Majorca car hire, scheduled to await your arrival at the airport.
Most of the tourist developments over the last 40 years have been centered around the port area, and this is most likely where you will find your hotel in Pureto Pollensa. Pollensa was an old roman town, and remnants of its roman history can still be found about 5 km inland from the port. You can walk the many narrow streets dating back to the 18th century and take in some of the interesting historical buildings there.
The bay of Pollensa is home to a multitude of luxury yachts, as well as plenty of colorful local fishing boats. On the nearby beaches you can find plenty of water sports and places to sit and have a drink or a meal. The warm shallow waters of the bay make this area especially popular with families with small children.
The main feature of Puerto Pollenca is the dramatic Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range that surrounds and shelters the town. If you are up for a serious hike on your vacation you can choose from numerous trails into these hills, where you can catch the best views back over the bay.
You will find the Puerto Pollenca area beaches quite tranquil compared to most of the other beaches on the island, but if you are looking for an afternoon of adventure the Hidropark and mini-golf course in Alcudia is only a 10 minute drive away in your car hire Majorca.
