Pine Walk is an area just outside of the small town of Puerto Pollensa, in the north-east of Majorca. Majorca might have acquired a reputation of being a somewhat gaudy tourist trap, but the Pine Walk area is the exception that breaks the rule. Holidays in Pine Walk in a rental villa will enable you to feel right at home in what is one of the more laid back and charming towns that Majorca has to offer. The range of self catering accommodation in Pine Walk are all equipped and maintained to the highest standards, and some will even include private pools!
Holidays in Pine Walk are all about taking it easy. That said, with the sea so close by and wonderful beaches, there are many leisure activities to choose from. The usual beach and sea-based things to do such as swimming, snorkelling and kayaking can all be done here. In addition, for anyone interested in horseback riding, a trip to the port Alcudia could be just the thing, and for golfers, there are two courses nearby, with many more scattered throughout the island.
A day trip to Alcudia is highly recommended whilst on holidays in Pine Walk. Here, it is possible to see some Roman ruins which include an amphitheatre. Another day trip to Palma should also be thought about, where it is possible to walk around this modern, bustling city which co-exists with much older sections. Its Gothic style cathedral and narrow streets, which are remnants of the Moorish times, sit well with the more up-to-date buildings which comprise the biggest city on the island. There is also an aquarium in Palma which would be an ideal place to go if you have kids, and the shopping areas will appeal to anyone who enjoys browsing around different shops.
With an ideal Mediterranean climate, renting a villa in Pine Walk is possible at almost any time of year. During the Summer, the top temperatures average out at 25 degrees Celsius; whilst in the Winter, the temperature averages between 10 and 15 degrees. Of course, there are exceptions, but it is certainly warmer than in the UK at similar times of year! The average rainfall for this area is quite low at 16 inches per year.
Most people travel to Majorca by air, and land at Palma Airport (PMI). Dozens of airlines fly in and out of here, and in 2010 they carried between them an astonishing 20 million passengers.
