Itinerary Overview

Myself and my family stayed in Pollenca, which is a beautiful old town 15 minutes from the beach of Puerto Pollenca. We stayed in a lovely town house with a pool in the back garden, but there are lots of more secluded places to stay around the town. We particularly loved staying in the town as we could walk in at night without having to worry about parking, and we loved the historic buildings compared to Puerto Pollenca which is slightly more modern. We explored the surrounding areas with a rented car, driving to different beaches and coves each day, hiring out mopeds to explore the well-known headland and cliffs of Cap de Formentor. We tried out many different restaurants in and around town, searching for our favourite food and atmosphere, and we indulged in the local festival named 'La Patrona' which is a fascinating tradition to see!
