|Port de Pollença is a resort rather high end where you can not see the huge hotels of mass tourism, as in Port d'Alcúdia, Platja d'Alcudia and Playa de Muro. The village was "discovered" by British tourists who are still ubiquitous, the English novelist Agatha Christie contributed to this popularity with a story "Problem at Pollensa Bay", written during a stay at the Hotel Illa d'Or in Port de Pollença in 1932.|
With the mountains as a backdrop, this resort oriented families extends across the coastal plain behind the Bay of Pollença (Badia de Pollenca), a deeply indented bay whose waters sheltered from the winds are ideal for swimming. The beach is the center of attention, a narrow strip of sand that is largely long enough to accommodate the crowds, but, in general, there is more room when we go to the south, towards Alcúdia.
An outbreak of apartment buildings and hotels spoiled the outskirts of the city, and the noisy main road to Alcúdia cut the village in the middle, but there are no skyscrapers in itself, and station is dotted with beautiful villas in stone, whitewashed. Overall the resort is quite nice, especially north of the marina, where part of the old road to the sea - along Passeig Anglada Camarasa - was made pedestrian.
