Palma de Mallorca
The attractive resort of Port de Pollença (called during the Middle Ages 'Boccoris') is located in the north of the island of Mallorca, at the foot of the majestic Tramuntana mountain range and is now well 6 000 inhabitants.
The original small fishing port has evolved over the years into an elegant marina. The largely pedestrianized beach promenade is dotted with shops, cafes and restaurants and is ideal for strolling and gluttons. On the busy marketplace is a pretty mixed crowd of locals and tourists meet.
The sheltered horseshoe shaped bay with its towards the water very gently sloping beach is ideal for children. Apart from that, Port de Pollença is a very popular destination for scuba divers, surfers and sailors. Excursions and tours by boat are also available from here. Walkers will be here, too: the coves of Cala Boquer and Cala San Vicente are for hikers in one to two hours to reach easily.
From Port de Pollença it goes on the military field by over a fairly impressive winding road with breathtaking views of the rock 'it Colomer' towards the luxury residential area of Formentor with its Romanesque nitschen bay and from there to'Cabo de Formentor '. The view from the lighthouse is spectacular and you can look across to the island of Menorca in good weather conditions.
The actual village of Pollença is located about 6 km from the coastal town and has about 10 000 inhabitants. The church'Nostra Senyora dels Àngels' on the central square, the 'Cloister de Santo Domingo' and the Calvary with its 365 steps from the 17th and 18th century are just a few of its many historical monuments. Museums, art galleries, boutiques and tasteful chic restaurants and cozy cafes characterize this charming village.
