North of Mallorca
North of Mallorca:
The north of Mallorca has a completely different feel to the South. Its amazing bays, mountains and medieval fortifications are interesting and unique on the island. Pollensa bay is the entrance to one of the most distant (from Palma center) beautiful beaches. People compare it to the caribbean. Formentor and Cap Formentor are a must see. Pollensa Port is very family orientated, very friendly and easy. Full of restaurants and sandy beaches. Pollensa city is a fortified town. Within its wall the famous Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Roser Vell with its 365 steps is found. Charming and traditional. Its cosyness is only supplemented by its 9 Hole Golf course and fisherman’s villages like Cala Sant Vicente.
A little bit further south Alcudia By with Playas de Muro offer visitors long white sandy beaches. It is a area full of contrast for those who know where to look, beautiful coves, natural parks and secret beaches can be found. Otherwise all you see is a mass conglomeration of monster hotels and mass tourism. From Alcudia you reach the area of Son Serra de Marina, Colonia San Pedro, Arta, Canyamel, Capdepera, Cala Ratjada. Also called North East.
