This resort has everything - wonderful scenery, beautiful sandy beaches and a laid-back friendly atmosphere.
The sheltered horseshoe shaped bay is set against the stunning backdrop of the Tramuntana mountain range is why it remains a favourite destination for families and couples who return time and time again.
The old town of Pollensa is just a short walk away. It dates back to the 18th century and is made up of a series of narrow streets and emblematic buildings.
This wonderful old town has many cafe's and restaurants and also an amazing market on Sundays.
Nearby Puerto Pollensa, originally a fishing village, retains the time old tradition of the evening paseo or stroll.
On warm, balmy evenings everyone wanders up and down between the marina whre luxury yachts as well as a mixture of colourful local fishing boats yachts are moored, past the pavement cafes and along the celebrated Pine Walk as far as the elegant Illa D'Or hotel.
There a a number of sandy beaches in the área as well as articicial ones and offer the usual selection of facilities and wáter sports. Much appreciated is the beach for kite surfers, leaving the port towards Alcudia.
Golf: There are two fabulous public golf courses in the area:
Golf Pllensa is a beautiful setting with nine holes of golf perfectly integrated into the local environment. The course offers panoramic views over the Mountains, olive groves, the bays of Pollensa and Alcudia and s’Albufereta reserve. Golf Pollensa opened in 1986 and underwent a complete renovation programme in 2000 bringing it up to the excellent standard it boasts today. The greens are maintained in perfect condition and there are two lakes, beautiful vegetation as well as olive and pine trees.
Golf Club Alcanada designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr opened 2003. Typical Trent Jones features like 58 well placed green side and fairway bunkers, challenging greens with hidden breaks and difficult but fair tee shots make this course a must for golfers in Mallorca. At least as spectacular as the design is the location, views of the bay of Alcudia and beyond can be seen from nearly every hole. Club Alcanada is the only course in Mallorca that is right alongside the sea. You will find pure nature on this course with a variety of wild life and rare species of birds, especially in the early morning hours.
