Mix gorgeous sunshine and Majorcan culture for an unforgettable holiday to Pollensa. The blissfully warm summers make the quaint resort of Pollensa an absolute haven in the Balearic Islands. Average temperatures can reach 30°C during the peak of the summer, so cooling down in the crystal-clear waters is an absolute must! Pollensa is also an ideal Balearic holiday if you want to embrace late-year sun and escape cold British weather. All that's left for you to do is pack your suitcase and head off in search of divine Majorca sunshine in Pollensa!
With such warm weather, a trip to the beach is certainly a good idea, particularly if you fancy topping up your tan. The Blue Flag beach, Port de Pollenca is outstanding and has the beautiful backdrop of the magnificent Tramuntana mountain range. Should you fancy a break from sunbathing, you can try your hand at a whole range of beach watersports, such as sailing and paddle-boarding.
Why not venture further out and explore what else Pollensa has to offer? Head to the resort's centre, stroll through the narrow medieval streets and admire the Gothic churches and Baroque chapels. Such beautiful architecture is just asking to be photographed, so don't forget your camera! If you're feeling adventurous, why not walk up to the top of Calvary Hill and admire the breath-taking panoramic view. With 365 steps to climb, you can definitely reward yourself with a refreshing drink afterwards. Exercise is very thirsty work, you know! We also recommend visiting Majorca's capital city of Palma for a cultured day trip. It's only an hour away from Pollensa, and it's a great day out for shopaholics and adventure lovers alike.
As the nightlife is very laid-back, a holiday to Pollensa is perfect if you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere to unwind. In the evening, allow yourself to be tempted by the fantastic selection of restaurants around the idyllic Plaza Major. Choose from traditional Majorcan cuisine or international dishes.
