Pollensa, Puerto Pollensa, Cala san Vicenç and Formentor constitute one of our island´s most beautiful corners, an attractive place to visit at any time of the year.

Sea and sand are not the only things that attract residents and visitors. Pollensa has a wide bay, calm waters, lovely beaches and also tiny coves with transparent waters such as cala Boquer, cala Figuera or cala Murta. Pollensa has hills, such as Calvary, Santuiri, or Puig de Maria and mountains of considerable height such as Tomir, Puig gros de Ternelles or Puig de ca, where we find paradisiacal spots such as Cala san Vicenç or Formentor.

The municipality of Pollensa has a great diversity of coastal habitats with different geographical make-up (sandy, stony ,cliffs, coastal islets) wetlands (l`albufereta, la gola) agricultural systems /cereals,fruit orchads..) farm areas, garrigue, forest (pine and holme oak woods) or high mountain, offering a diversity of vegetation which encourage the presence of many bird species. When we add the fact that Pollensa is strategically located in the centre of the main migratory routes, we find here the best countryside in the Balearics to welcome ornithological fauna.

The so called Bio-diversity routes comprise ten walking excursions in Pollensa and five cycling routes which are an important part of the facilities available in the municipality.

Pollensa also has a special attraction for those who take a stroll around the town centre; tradition, history, architecture and culture are ingredients that will help visitors to get to know the town.

Emblematic places such as the Calvary, Roman Bridge, or the interesting Pollensa museum, the Pollensa festival, the numerous art exhibitions...all make Pollensa especially attractive.
