Puerto Pollensa
The island of Majorca is one of the most privileged in the Mediterranean, boasting magnificent mountains and inland scenery, a superb coastline studded with caves and sandy beaches. Away from the tourist beaches around Palma, Majorca is a beautifully unspoilt island.
Windmills, rustic farms and charming little villages dot the wide fertile plains in the south. The rugged coastline is studded with tiny, deserted coves backed by pine-clad cliffs. The dramatic mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana dominate the north. Green valleys nestle amongst the pine-covered slopes to nurture lush orchards of orange, lemon and almond trees. Spectacular Cape Formentor (opposite) guards excellent beaches.

Situated on the North East side the island, Puerto Pollensa combines magnificent mountains, a horseshoe bay with safe sandy beaches, added to a micro climate you end up with a truly magnificent setting!

Puerto Pollensa is an attractive marina, with excellent water sports on the long safe beach and whose promenade, the famous ‘Pine Walk’ is fringed with lively bars and super fish restaurants – breakfast on an ‘ensaimada’ bun or dine on ‘Frito Mallorquin’.

Hide in with its narrow cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Buy local pottery, lace, shoes and fresh vegetables at the famous Sunday market or take an evening coffee and watch the world pass you by.  At the top of the highest mountain dominating Pollença - Puig de Santa María - is an ancient hermitage (the Santuari). The friars who ran the institution all died off long ago, with none arriving to replace them. Nuns then took their place, but history sadly repeated itself, and a married couple now professionally run the place. 
Visitors can spend the night in the spartan rooms if they so wish - it's a hard climb up though! (It can also be reached by car along a twisting road off the main Palma - Pollença road.) - In the town of Pollença itself, just behind the church, is El Calvario. This is a set of 365 steps - one for each day of the year - leading up to a hermitage and church with a life-sized image of the Virgin that supposedly dates from the 13th century. On each side of the steps are typical Mallorquin houses, many of them today occupied by foreign residents. Climbers are rewarded with a fine view of the town, bay, and surrounding countryside. 
On Good Friday an impressive religious spectacle takes place on the steps as Christ's body is (supposedly) carried down the 365 steps.
One of the most beautiful places on the island. Following the road to the lighthouse you discover small coves of matchless beauty - Cala Figuera, Cala Murta and Cala Engosauba and finally to the end which is the northern most point of Majorca.
Hotel Formentor is an emblematic 5 star hotel, one of the first establishments on the island. Since 1916 it has been giving both high quality and an excellent service.
It is located in a peninsula with the same name, right on the nice sandy beach and surrounded with a green gown of vegetation. Personalities like Helmut Kohl, Elisabeth Taylor, Plácido Domingo, Michael Douglas, Camilo José Cela, The Dalai Lama and others have chosen Hotel Formentor during their visits to the island.
