Puerto Pollensa- Majorca

If I’m honest I always was put off Majorca and I don’t know why. Maybe the travel snob in me remembering 18-30 type holidays in Magaluf. However after hearing positive stories from friends we tried it finally 5 years ago and absolutely fell for it! What a fool I had been! Totally missing out! We soon rebooked our return!

Puerto Pollensa is perfect for young families. Beautiful accessible beaches sloping into the warm sea.

We stayed at Hotel Villa Concha and it was wonderful and 5 mins from the beach. Lovely pools and children’s entertainment but not the in your face kind of thing, which suits us. They have pools, spa, toddler slides, an adult only pool, a little soft play for young children, arts and craft and on some days a water obstacle course. It’s not a huge sprawling hotel and we think it's perfect... well almost! It doesn't cater for families of 5 so once our 3rd child was out of a cot, we can't really visit within a reasonable budget.

The first time we went we booked independently B&B and the second time with Jet2-half board as it was cheaper that self catering 🤷‍♀️

Lovely food and staff, the children remember both very fondly!

A snippet of things we enjoyed to do on the island;

* Visit Pollensa old town, a short drive inland. Amazing market and shops in the most beautiful setting. It really comes alive in the evening too. We enjoyed a lovely dinner out there.

🚋 Take a day trip to Port de Soller. Get an old wooden tram from Soller to Port de Soller through a valley full of olive, lemon and orange groves. We had lunch at a beach restaurant while the children played in the sand. Once we took the old train from Palma to Soller and then the tram, the second time we drove and left the car at Soller before catching the tram.

🌅 Walk up to the view point at Formentor. An amazing lookout. We once took a boat trip round to Platja de Formentor, it was a wonderful idyllic beach.

🛶Visit one of the caves of Majorca we particularly loved Hams Caves, this included a big projection about the brief history of Majorca. Captivated the children. Another one we visited was Cuevas del Drach also near Porto Christo this one features little boats and live music and is one of the largest underground lakes in Europe. More importantly nice and cool for a break from the heat.

🌲The pine walk in Puerto Pollensa is a must. A nice stroll along the sea front, nice restaurants and market stalls. Some amazing restaurants where we swam in the sea until we saw our food coming. Blissful.

These are some of our highlights... but we spent most of our time in the sea or by the pool.
