Monday is currently, on average, the cheapest day to fly to Puerto Pollensa. Flying on Thursday will result in higher flight prices.
There are two things that make Puerto Pollensa, an old fishing village, an outstanding holiday destination. The first is its setting, the horseshoe-shaped bay with its wide, sandy beach, sits against the blue-black Tramuntana mountains. Its pine-tree shaded promenade, running along the northern stretch of the beach, is the second. Apart from its obvious attractions of shops, cafes and hotels, it is a wonderful spot to take part in the paseo, the evening stroll.
It is situated on the northwest coast of Mallorca on the peninsula of Formentor, a 90-minute or so drive from Palma at which travellers taking flights to Puerto Pollensa land.
A resort favoured mostly by families and couples, its calm waters are ideal for small children and the sands are soft and white. Much of the resort is pedestrianised too. Not the place for riotous nightlife, revellers would find Alcudia better for that than Puerto Pollensa.
The local eateries serve Majorcan specialities such as suckling pig, kid, fritos (fried offal) and snails, while the waterfront is the place to head for seafood.
