The apartment block is predominantly occupied by residents who live there throughout the year, many of whom have become close friends over the past 10 years and would be more than willing to point you in the right direction should you need to know anything about the local area.
For over 50 years, 4 generations of my family have been visiting Puerto Pollenca and we have spent some of the best times of our lives there. I believe it offers something for everyone, from families, to young and old couples as well as those who like a bit of nightlife (town centre - 10 min walk). It is perfect for those who enjoy being active with numerous walking routes as well as offering scuba diving, water skiing, kite surfing, tennis and golf amongst other activities. Alternatively if you just want to lie back and relax in the sun, the numerous beaches offer plenty of opportunity to unwind.... and maybe a cheeky sun downer cocktail or G&T on the Illa D'or terrace at the end of a hard days tanning!!
I will do my best to accommodate any flexibility required in terms of dates. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions whatsoever, pre or post booking.

Puerto de Pollenca was originally a fishing village now it attracts the visitor that appreciates it's charming bay and sandy beaches. The dramatic mountain scenery and the abundance of greenery, with lots of pine and palm trees, creates such beautiful scenery. The seafront walk past the yacht club and marina and along the elegant pine walk is wonderful. Pollenca and Puerto de Pollenca have great quality restaurants and there are many to choose from (personal favourites are Can Cuarassa, The Ivy Garden, Little Italy, Stay).
There is a Wednesday market in the main square where you can buy local produce. There are also numerous boutique style shops in the port offering things such as home furnishings, paintings, clothes etc. The old town of Pollenca has a Sunday market which is full of atmosphere and an ideal opportunity to sit at a cafe bar and watch the passers by. For those that like to explore there are the Calvario steps and the Puig Marie to climb. Pollenca has a classical music festival July and August were acclaimed musicians appear. The neighbouring beaches of Cala St Vicente and Formentor are well worth visiting and are easily reached by taxi (Cala St Vicente - 15 mins) or ferry (Formentor - 30 mins ferry or taxi).
Whilst the area is ideally suited for couples and families, it also offers some enjoyable nightlife concentrated around the main square with lots of bars and a small nightclub (Chivas).
