    What’s the food like in Puerto Pollensa?

    Fans of Spanish flavours won’t be disappointed, as all the famous national dishes have made their way to the island.

    • Pescado a la Mallorquina - Seabass fried up with fresh tomatoes, pine nuts, and sultanas.
    • Caragols - A favourite seaside dish of snails cooked in a punchy garlic and herb broth.
    • Pa amb Oli - Bread and oil may sound a tad simple, but Mallorcans really kick it up a notch.
    • Sobrassada - The local cured sausage, packed with paprika and often served as a spread.

    Landscape

    Puerto Pollensa is dominated by the stunning Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range that surrounds and shelters the town. There are a number of walks into these hills where you get good views from over the bay, so make sure you pack your camera! There are regular bus and boat trips to the nearby Cap de Formentor where they say on a clear day from the very tip of the lighthouse, you can see the nearby island of Menorca.


    There are a number of small natural beaches in the area, as well as the extended artificial one. The warm shallow waters are extremely popular with families who have small children but also with adults who want to try watersports. If all you want to do is relax, why not hire a pedalo and take in the scenery from the sea?

    Things To Do on Puerto Pollensa Holidays

    One of the popular ways to take in the sights of Puerto Pollensa is to take an evening stroll along the Pine Walk. The pedestrian promenade is lined with palms and pine trees and runs for most of the length of the resort. Those wanting to find out more about the history of the resort and take in some local culture will want to visit the two museums on offer. The Pollensa Municipal Museum is home to a large collection of paintings of the area and also has a number of archaeological finds, a Buddhist mandala and Atilio Boveri collection. There is also the Monograph Museum of Pollensa which has a number of displays showing life in the town during the Roman occupation of the island.

    There are also plenty of small shops to interest those wanting to spend some money on holidays in Puerto Pollensa, but if you want designer shops or local markets, it would be best taking a trip to nearby Alcudia or head to Palma. For the children, there is an indoor play area called Fantasy World, which has a number of facilities for kids of all ages. But if you want something more lively there are also mini golf courses and a waterpark at Alcudia.

    Culture

    Puerto Pollensa's rich history is well preserved in the narrow streets and Roman bridges to give you an insight into its old history. Although it is now a top tourist resort it has still managed to keep its originality and offers an interesting insight into its history to enjoy if you fancy a break from relaxing on the beach.

    There are plenty of festivals throughout the year to enjoy on Puerto Pollensa holidays, and the first fiesta of the year takes place over the 16th and 17th of January. Small bonfires are lit on the first day and traditional songs sung in celebration of San Anton, the patron saint of animals. Each Good Friday, the 365 Calvari steps are the scene of a moving progression which is very popular with both locals and visitors alike. The figure of Christ is removed from a cross and carried down the steps by torchlight.

    July and August sees the annual Pollensa Music Festival which is an important part of the town's cultural calendar.
