When it comes to considering where to stay in the north of Mallorca, there are plentiful charming seafront towns, mountainside settlements, and bustling cities that offer insight into this beautiful Mediterranean island’s enticing culture and enrapturing history.
And Puerto Pollensa, located nearby the northern tip of Mallorca, roughly 6km east of the well-known town of Pollensa, is no exception. A popular coastal location amongst tourists and locals alike, this settlement features stretching sandy shorelines and a hive of activity amidst the eateries and boutique shops of its centre.
The beauty of this destination has even caught the attention of some of the world’s most famous icons, including the likes of Agatha Christie, who wrote a novel based on the location called ‘Problems at Pollensa Bay”.
The town is, therefore, undoubtedly a wonderful destination to base yourself in for a holiday to explore the wealth of offerings in Puerto Pollensa. It also offers a prime location to explore the wider areas of northern Mallorca and its other picturesque settlements.
So, if you wish to take a chance on the charming town of Puerto Pollensa, we, here at Vida Villas, have taken the liberty of listing the best locations in the town, and therefore where to stay in Puerto Pollensa to make the most of your holiday here.
The busiest promenade in Puerto Pollensa town, the Pine Walk offers a beautiful seafront saunter for those looking for one of the best destinations to view the bay of Pollensa and the Mediterranean sea.
Lined by palm trees, you can seek shade beneath here or take a break at any one of its delectable restaurants, cafes, and bars, should you want to indulge in some light people spotting or to sample local Mediterranean and Mallorcan cuisine.
The D’Albercuix beach neighbouring the Pine Walk makes for a lovely day out with waves quietly lapping on its shorelines and pristine sandy stretches. And with a backdrop of the Tramuntana mountain range, you can’t get a much more picturesque seaside location than here.
The Pine Walk’s close vicinity to the town, but also to the lovely seafront locations of Puerto Pollensa, makes it one of the most ideal spots when considering where to stay in Puerto Pollensa.
Thus, we would recommend staying in Case Voramor during your holiday, located right in front of the Pine Walk. This 3-bedroom 6 person villa is set right beside the beachfront along the famed Pine Walk, therefore, offering a convenient location to the promenade’s range of shops, eateries, and other facilities.
And featuring two terraces as well as a rear patio, this light, open, and airy property makes for a lovely modern family stay in one of Puerto Pollensa’s most sought-after locations.
Located on the outskirts of Puerto Pollensa, the upmarket residential area of Siller hosts some of the town’s most modern apartment complexes, homes, and villas. You’ll find that the area, and its accommodations, offer much more space than those that you’d find in the centre of Puerto Pollensa. This is purely because the area has been built up over the years to offer visitors’ a preferred, and more spacious, 21st-century standard of living.
The area is located around 1.5km southwest of the centre of Puerto Pollensa itself, offering seclusion and sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town centre. Siller is, however, still within easy reach of all of the amenities and facilities that you could desire. To put it into perspective, the area is a mere 3-minute drive from the centre of Puerto Pollensa, and only a short 19-minute walk to the same location.
For those who seek peaceful and tranquil surroundings, but still a central location, Siller is one of the best areas to stay in Mallorca and Puerto Pollensa. Villa Ani, in particular, is a magnificent option for groups of friends or a larger family.
The 4-bedroom villa, which can host up to 8 guests, is built in a classical style with a lovely farmhouse twist. With an upper terrace, perfect for indulging in sunset cocktails, and a well-sized garden with an outdoor swimming pool, larger groups can savour a peaceful stay here during their next trip to Puerto Pollensa.
Puerto Pollensa’s seafront stretches are some of its most desirable local attractions, but its main beach, known as Port De Pollensa Beach, is one of the most popular and visited areas of the town.
Its curving length of golden sandy shoreline bordered by crystal blue waters is the idyllic seaside day out during your holidays. It’s the largest beach in Puerto Pollensa, offering plenty of space and opportunity for all beach lovers’ activities, including popular watersports such as sailing and windsurfing. The waters are also shallow, making them suitable for all ages, and are lovely and warm during the summer months.
For those who simply want to spend their time in Puerto Pollensa sunning themselves beneath the blissful sunshine of the Mediterranean, making sure that you’re situated as close to Puerto Pollensa Beach as possible will no doubt be a high priority on your holiday.
So, when considering where to stay near Puerto Pollensa Beach, the Apartment Can Sivella offers an unrivalled location that means you’re within easy reach of the beach’s shorelines.
Only a short walk from the beach itself, the apartment can host up to 2 people in 1 bedroom and boasts a balcony, covered terrace, and outdoor area where you can dine a la carte for a romantic night in.
The area of Llenaire is a lovely seafront location encompassing the area of Formentor. It is within close proximity to Puerto Pollensa’s much-loved seafront stretches, perfect if you’re wanting a day at the beach.
Equally, with this, there comes plenty of seaside eateries, bars, and restaurants, for a drink by the sea, which we’d recommend doing as the sun sets, or should you need to refuel after a busy day of beachfront activities.
And it’s not just the seafront that has great eateries, for the whole area is home to a host of exceptional dining experiences that offer everything from traditional Mallorcan cuisine to other European delicacies.
The area is also within easy reach of the centre of Puerto Pollensa, only a 5-minute drive or around a 20-minute walk from its confines. Therefore, if you’re in search of discovering a location on the outskirts of Puerto Pollensa town centre, but still want the opportunity to indulge in the fantastic beachfront locations the town has to offer, then the area of Llenaire is for you.
Located in the heart of the Llenaire area is Villa Nueve, which can host up to 10 guests sleeping across 5 bedrooms, making it ideal for larger groups of friends and loved ones, with the facilities to match.
Villa Nueve’s location is only enhanced by its proximity to the local beach, as it’s a mere 750 metres away. If you’re looking to spend your days in the comforts of this modern villa, however, it features a private and shared terrace, outdoor pool, barbeque, and a vast garden complete with a children’s sports area.
Also known as La Goya Nature Park, this verdant area of Puerto Pollensa right in the centre of the town itself is home to rich biodiversity and verdant wildlife.
So, despite Puerto Pollensa having its busy, vibrant centre lined with ochre-coloured buildings and cobbled streets, the town is also home to a pristine natural paradise that attracts visitors year after year.
The small wetland area is formed from where the two rivers, one from Gommar and another from Siller, meet, creating a mixture of fresh water and saltwater in its area. It is also home to over 60 species of birds, making it perfect for wildlife lovers and birdwatchers to catch a glimpse of some of Mallorca’s native species.
Should you be interested in staying nearby this lovely area of natural beauty in the heart of Puerto Pollensa, Apartment La Gola Marga is a splendid option to consider.
Able to host up to 6 guests across 3 bedrooms, this stylish and sleek home boasts a shared pool and close proximity, as it is next door, to La Gola Nature Park. It is also only a short stroll from the town centre of Puerto Pollensa, therefore making it more than ideal to access the best of the town’s offerings.
