Cycling and watersports of all kinds are popular in the area, in fact you will find a Wind Surf school directly on the beach as you approach the town from the Alcudia direction.

Originally a small fishing village, the town has grown slowly and steadily over time to cope with demand in tourism. In previous years visitors to this area were mainly from Britain however today you will find Germans, Skandinavians, French, Eastern Europeans and more recently Russian tourists.

A few kilometres inland is Pollensa Village where you will find the 'Ajuntament' local goverment offices (municipality). On the Ajuntament website you will find local events, links, and information on the local fiestas.

  • Cap de Formentor

    Regular bus and boat trips run from the resort north to the nearby Cap de Formentor, which is a little over 12 miles further up the coast. From the lighthouse at the very tip it is claimed that on a clear day you can see the nearby island of Menorca. The cheapest way is by the water taxi which runs on the hour from 10:00 to 15:00 each day at a cost of around 7.50 euro for adults and 3.75 euro for children for the return journey.

  • Albufereta Nature Reserve

    Although much smaller, and less well known than the S'Albufera wetlands between Alcudia and Playa de Muro, Pollensa's own Albufereta Nature Reserve covers a surface area of more than 150 hectares and includes canals, lakes and reed beds. Albufereta is of special interest for bird lovers, with almost two hundred species nesting or feeding in the area, and this is why it has been afforded special environmental protection.

  • Cycling - Pollensa - Alcudia

    Mallorca's mild winters, the intense light and colour that pervades the spring, and the pleasant temperatures all year round make it ideal for active visitors.
    Majorca offers some of the most impressive, demanding and leisurely rides that makes the island a popular destination right through from amateur to professional cyclist. The rises and falls of the Tramuntana mountains make the perfect cycle playground for those wanting to test their strength against Majorca’s mountain range.
