The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca has long been a favoured European holiday destination. With its lush landscape, exemplified by the Sierra de Tramuntara – a registered UNESCO World Heritage Site, rugged coastline and striking clifftops, rich history and accessibility from European destinations, Mallorca has been a favoured holiday hotspot for generations.
Mallorca boasts 554KM of coastline and an average of 300 days of sunshine each year, making it the ideal destination for sun-seekers. Enchanting without being pretentious, the north of the island offers much for holiday-makers to enjoy, from inspiring scenery to elegant and rustic eateries, five-star beaches and towns steeped in traditional Catalan history.
Our Mallorca villas are situated on the north of the island. Stay in or around the lovely Pollensa and discover quintessentially Spanish vistas and a charming town which fully immerses you in Catalan culture. The perfect location to enjoy an idyllically private holiday with family and friends, you can stay in idyllic farmhouses, or if you prefer, modern luxury apartments a stone’s throw from the beautiful Catalan town.
With white sand stretching as far as the eye can see and invitingly warm water and memorable landscapes, Mallorca has some of the best beaches in Europe. Perfect for spending a week relaxing as the Atlantic Ocean laps at your feet and a cool breeze cascades across your face, Mallorcan beaches are one of the primary reasons why tens of thousands of tourists migrate to the island every year.
Take a ten-minute drive from the old town of Pollensa and you’ll happen across Playa de Port Pollensa. One and a half kilometres long, this Blue Flag beach is framed by the Tramuntana mountains and the craggy hills of Formentor. Visitors can enjoy boating and water sports, top up their tans or leisurely stroll through the splendid array of nearby shops and restaurants.
If you’re looking to take shelter from the sun or fancy picking up a gift or two, you’ll be pleased to discover that Mallorca offers a wealth of shopping opportunities. A visit to Pollensa is a great way to while away the hours – and it’s here that you’ll discover strikingly artistic trinkets, gaudy textiles and delectable Spanish cuisine.
Looking for crafts and clothes? Perhaps you’re hoping to pick up the ingredients to cook a sumptuous Spanish meal? If so, you simply must visit Pollensa Sunday Market. Buy bespoke jewellery at Shobha Diane Jewellery. Find a piece that complements both evening and casualwear, putting the final touch to any ensemble.
Mallorca has much to, not just pique the interest of holiday-makers but, hold it. Whether you’re someone likely to be awestruck by natural scenery or are a keen ornithologist, you’ll find much to keep you entertained when visiting Mallorca.
Visit the Coves de Campanet on the north side of the island and take in breath-taking rock formations. Sign-up for one of the 40-minute tours and enjoy a unique perspective on one of Mallorca’s signature areas of natural beauty. Explore the port town of Pollensa. Here you’ll be greeted by a hypnotic blue ocean and churches that embody the deep spiritualism of the island.
Once you’ve filled your day with beachfront frivolity, exploring the scenic landscape, or exploring the rustic market and shops, you’ll find that Mallorca still has much to offer when the evening draws in.
Both the Dollar Street and The Marina area are famed for their versatile and wholly enjoyable nightlife. Grab a bite to eat at one of the established eateries or unwind and relax at one of Mallorca’s bars and pubs. The Marina area is home to two Irish bars where strangers are always greeted warmly, whilst the Dollar Street area offers a range of pubs and bars, karaoke and quiz nights, sure to keep everyone smiling and laughing until the small hours of the morning.
Though it may be a small town situated on the Bay, Puerto Pollensa has long-proven highly attractive to holiday-makers. Each year people from across Europe and beyond congregate at the port to experience consummate Mallorcan culture. And with so much to see and experience, it’s not hard to see why.
- Mare de Due Angels Parish – this parish church has an assured place in the annals of Mallorcan – and European history. Founded in 1236, the church was handed to the Order of the Knights Templar and later the Order of Malta. Having undergone extensive renovations, today the church is a meeting point for the spiritual and historical connoisseurs alike.
- Pine Walk – named for the imposing pine trees that decorate either side, Pine Walk is one of the most popular places in Mallorca to walk, stand or sit and admire the mesmerising natural scenery of Mallorca. Discover cosy bars and restaurants and be inspired by the sculptures and artwork across the walkway.
- The Boquer Valley – venture to the outskirts of Pollensa and you’ll come across Boquer Valley. It’s here you’ll find a collection of indigenous animals, wild and birdlife native to Mallorca, wonderfully diverse zig-zagged pathway and rustic pathways that stretch for over three kilometres. It’s the perfect place for a relaxing later afternoon or evening stroll.
