Beaches > Pollenša

  The town of Pollensa was founded in 1229 with the Catalan conquest of Majorca, although the name goes back many years before this.
Under Moorish rule the town was known as Al-Bulansa and by the Romans as Pollentia, although the Roman city of Pollentia currently lies in the municipality of Alc˙dia.
Located in the valley enclosed by the Puig de Maria and the Calvari, Pollensa is the main municipal centre, with over 8,000 inhabitants.
Its old town, dating back to the 18 th century, is made up of a series of narrow streets and emblematic buildings such as the Calvari, the Parish Church, the Cloister of Sant Domingo and the Jesuit School, among others.

Beaches of Pollenša

Can Cullerassa

  Which is over 600 m long, has a pebbly beach and an old pine grove. To get here, follow the road PM-222 that goes along the coast Alc˙dia to Port de Pollenša and you will find the beach where the residential area begins.

Port de Pollenša beach

  Also known as Llenaire, is one of the main attractions in this tourist resort. This beach, which is 1000 m long and 35 m wide, has fine white sands and a promenade. There is an ample parking area near the port.

Cala Albercuix

  Includes several small beaches located along the Passeig Voramar, the promenade which has old villas running along it and which is shaded by ancient pine trees and tamarisks. There are sand banks and the seabed is almost flat, with the water only reaching a depth of half a metre at 300 m from the shoreline.

El Calˇ

  Is a small unspoilt beach with large pebbles and shingle; it is 55 m long and 20 m wide. The seabed is rocky and there is plenty of submarine vegetation, which makes it a perfect place for snorkelling. To get here is not easy, because the military facilities of the air-sea base do not allow free access from Punta de l┤Avanšada. Therefore, it is necessary to walk 4,000 m from the starting point at the bottom of the road that heads to the air-sea base from the PM-221, which is the road which runs along Formentor. Nearby there is a wall made of stones with a fence, which will guide you through the vegetation that covers this calcareous hillside, protected occasionally by some pine trees. Follow the wall to the peak and down to the sea, where you will find the beach nearby.

Cala Formentor

  Is a beach divided into two by a pier used by tourist boats. It is about 900 m long and 10 m wide and has fine white sands. In front of the beach is the little isle of Formentor, and a pine grove provides shade behind it. To get here, there is a bus from Port de Pollenša. By car, take the road PM-221 towards the Cap de Formentor, from where the beach is well signposted. There is an ample parking area for which there is a charge.

Cala Murta

  Is an unspoilt beach made up of sand and shingle which is 60 m long and 25 m wide. The depth of the water is 8 m at 200 m from the shore and 4 m at 100 m, and the seabed is sandy. There are some facilities, such as a few barbeques, areas for camping, and benches and tables for picnics. To get here, take the road PM-221 towards Formentor, go past the turning leading to the beach of Formentor, and take the turning to Cala Murta at the 13 km mark. Although the surface is good, the use of vehicles is restricted and the last 1,700 m have to be walked. Almost the entire path goes through a pine grove.

Cala en Gossalba

  Is made up of two small unspoilt beaches with a rocky seabed and a thick pine wood at the back; the beach is formed by pebbles and shingle and is 30 m long and 30 m wide. To get here, you have to walk 2,500 m north from Cala Murta along the cliffs.

Cala Figuera

  Is an unspoilt fifty-metre-long beach with sand and pebbles which are usually covered by seaweed. It┤s not difficult to find, because it can be seen from the road PM-221, which leads to the Formentor lighthouse; some kilometres after passing the turning to the beach of Formentor, you will see the beach on the left hand side. There is a parking area, from where there is a path that goes down to the beach.

Es Morer Vermell

  Is a quiet beach which is 210 m long and 10 m wide; it is located in the residential area of the same name in Alcudia and has a rocky seabed. There are some buildings around the beach, but the right-hand end, where there is a pine grove, remains unspoilt.

Cala Boquer

  This unspoilt and isolated beach is a good refuge for sailors; it is about 45 m long and 10 m wide, with pebbles and shingle at the shore. To get here, from Port de Pollenša follow the road towards Formentor; go straight over the roundabout, leaving the residential area behind you, and you will see a hill with houses, which stands over the valley entrance and is where cars have to be left. Cross the fence and walk along the path surrounded by pine trees, passing by the front of the house without any difficulties. The path goes between two big rocks, before reaching the beach, which is about 1,500 m away.

Cala Carbˇ

  Which is 50 m long and 30 m wide, is covered by pebbles and shingle. It is located at the end of Cala Sant Vicenš, from where you have to head right along the only road by the sea.

Cala Clara

  Is a small beach which is 30 m long and 25 m wide. It is 100 m away from Cala Barques in Cala Sant Vicenš, and it is usually very crowded due to the proximity of a large hotel.

Cala Barques

  Which is 80 m long and 25 m wide and which has fine sand, is the biggest beach in Cala Sant Vicenš.
