Holidays in Pollensa offer a wealth of attractions – a beautiful town with restaurants, shops, bars, and pretty squares with a golden beach and emerald landscapes surrounding. Enveloped by mountains, the pretty bay area is protected from stronger winds, while out to sea there are plenty of opportunities to try windsurfing, sailing, and other wind sports. The town itself remains small and peaceful, with the excellent restaurants Majorca is known for, unencumbered by lively bars.
Choose from two beaches, Pollensa Beach and Albercutx Beach, and choose from lively sands with lots of watersports and family friendly shallow waters that are perfect for your little ones. When it comes to food there are some excellent seafood restaurants, as well as fine dining options, and a bustling market, which comes to town on Wednesdays. The shops in the town offer boutique designer items and souvenirs, while there are pretty churches and a little square for visitors to explore.

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
