Out and About in Pollensa, Majorca

Majorca does have a reputation for being a very busy tourist island, and the reports of overflowing beaches and jam packed resorts are true, but Pollensa has remained one of Majorca’s best kept secrets.

The most dramatic attraction in Pollensa is just to one side of the Placa Major, the central town square.

Placa Major is a bustling town centre with a festive and friendly ambience, if you can tear yourself away from your stunning Pollensa holiday accommodation and the gorgeous views from your holiday villa, you may want to take a stroll through the square; just be prepared to be swept right back into time.

Enjoy a light lunch or a sun downer on a cobbled sidewalk and sit back and watch the sights and sounds of this vibrant town as they pass by all around you.
