Originally a fishing village Puerto Pollensa still retains the time old tradition of the evening “paseo” or stroll.
On warm, balmy evenings everyone wanders up and down between the marina where the yachts are moored, past the pavement cafes and restaurants and along the celebrated “Pine Walk”, as far as the elegant Illa D’or hotel. It is truly a romantic and magical place.

Puerto de Pollensa
Pollensa town was established a few miles inland to protect against any sudden pirate attacks; its harbour, Puerto Pollensa, was left as an unprotected outpost.
Today the port has grown into a popular family resort that retains the time old tradition of the evening paseo or stroll on the port’s celebrated Pine Walk promenade, stretching from the marina along the seafront to the elegant Illa D’Or Hotel at the far north.
This resort has everything – wonderful scenery, beautiful sandy beaches and a laid-back friendly atmosphere.
The main feature of the resort is the dramatic Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range that surrounds and shelters the town. There are numerous walks into these hills from where the views back over the bay are stunning.
One of the liveliest and biggest local markets takes place every Sunday in the church square in the Pollensa old town. Stalls extend down the side streets, filled with a variety of goods from fresh fruits and vegetables to local crafts and carvings, leather goods, ceramics and lace. Market day in Puerto Pollensa itself is Wednesdays, when stalls are set up in the Church Square.
Puerto Pollensa is renowned for hosting some of the best fish restaurants on Mallorca, but there is also a wide selection of restaurants catering to all tastes an pockets. Children are more than welcome in most establishments.
The long beach of white sand with warm shallow waters makes it especially popular for families with small children.

Majorca (Spanish and Catalan: Mallorca) is the largest island of Spain. It is located in the Mediterranean Sea and part of the Balearic Islands archipelago.
The name derives from Latin insula maior, “larger island”; later Maiorica.
The capital of the island, Palma, is also the capital of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands. The Cabrera archipelago is administratively grouped with Majorca (in the municipality of Palma). The anthem of Majorca is La Balanguera.

Wild flowers of Majorca Minorca and Ibiza
Visitors to these islands in search of sun and sea are often surprised by the glorious wild flowers, abundant particularly in the spring and late autumn.
Many are curious to know more about them.
This book offers a means of identification on three levels.
For the complete beginner there are illustrations of most of the more strikingwild plants (and of a few cultivated ones).
For those who wish to go further, there is help in the form of a botanical key (abasic skill for would-be botanists, and what better place, than a sunny holiday island to learn it in).
For those who already have this skill here is a key to all the wild floweringplants ( except those waiting to be discovered – what a challenge for an interesting holiday!).
