Destination guide

Port de Pollenca: a major Majorca highlight

The most northerly town in Majorca, Port de Pollenca is set on a horseshoe-shaped bay, and if you ever get a chance to visit, you'll surely luck out with family-friendly beaches, waterfront restaurants, and the dramatic natural scenery of the Formentor peninsula. Perhaps you'll understand what drew a number of artists and writers to Port de Pollenca, including Agatha Christie, who even penned a story about this beach destination. A Port de Pollenca vacation rental is an ideal base for exploring this beach town in the Balearic Islands, whether you're going for the picturesque walks and hikes, the world-class scuba diving, or the wide array of watersports.

Things to do

Art and antiquated attractions in Port de Pollenca

Take a break from the watersports—Port de Pollenca has the ideal wind conditions for activities like kitesurfing, windsurfing, and sailing—and inject some culture into your holiday. Port de Pollenca vacation rentals will put you close to the town's art museums. See original works right where they were created at The Dionis Bennassar Museum, set in the residence of the late local artist it's named after, or head for the Museum of Pollenca, housed in the cloister of the 17th-century Convent de Sant Domingo. Save the sangria for after your stopover at the 18th-century Esglesia del Calvari, since you'll be climbing 365 steps to reach this hilltop chapel.

Activities

It's a "pine" day for a walk in Port de Pollenca

Port de Pollenca is the perfect vacation spot for walkers, and not the kind you see on The Walking Dead! If you're a fan of scenic walks, put the Pine Walk at the tippity top of your Port de Pollenca bucket list, but expect almost all your fellow travelers to be there, too. Strolling along this coastal pathway, which extends just over 2 miles, is such a popular activity in town that you're likely to meet lots of locals and visitors on your way to the bronze bust of Catalan painter Hermenegildo Anglada Camarasa, or to the old Military Base, where you can spot fire-fighting aircraft.

Weather

Keepin' it cool in Majorca's Port de Pollenca

Thanks to the Mediterranean climate in the Balearics, summer is hot and humid, with long stretches of sunshine accompanied by cool sea breezes. Average temps from June to August dance around 75 degrees, with highs in the mid 80s. Don't be fooled by the average temp of 49 degrees during the winter months of December to February. Winter lows can dip into the single digits, so bring layers to keep warm. If you're coming in October, pack an umbrella, as this is the wettest month of the year. Port de Pollenca vacation rentals tend to have lower price tags in the winter.

Natural features

But wait, there's more—more walking, that is

The Pine Walk and a serene stroll around the marina are both walks in the park, but you might want a longer, more strenuous workout to burn all the calories from sampling Majorcan fare like "panadas" and "pa amb olis." If so, grab your walking boots and a water bottle, and hike the trail from Port de Pollenca through the Boquer valley to Cala Boquer. You won't meet as many people on this hike, but you might make friends with some mountain goats. You'll also see the Sierra de Cavall Bernat, a mountain named for the horse-shaped shadow it casts ("cavall" translates to "horse"). The limestone ridge atop the Cavall Bernat poses an extra challenge for rock climbers.
