MALLORCA – NORTH COAST
A genuinely stunning stretch of coastline the Northern region of Mallorca is where the Traumantana Mountain Range reaches its highest peaks and falls towards the sea to Cap Formentor on the north shore of Bay of Pollensa. This stunning blend of breathtaking mountain scenery and beautiful coastline is virtually untouched. As you round the northern tip of the Island you arrive at some of the region’s best known holiday destinations such as Puerto Pollensa and Puerto Alcudia both of which are favourites amongst the international yachting and pleasure boating fraternity.
The North Coast is the ideal destination for a combination sailing, outdoor pursuits and conventional beach holiday. There is also plenty to satisfy culture vultures as the area boasts some of Mallorca’s most famous ‘Old Towns’. Pollensa ‘village’ nestles at the foot of the Traumantanas and simply oozes history offering a fascinating insight into the Mallorca of bygone days. Alcucia ‘Old Town’ is set back from the port and offers a fantastic choice of good food and entertainment.
Other places worth checking out include the dramatically rocky peninsula of Cap Formentor; the picturesque ‘Old Towns’ of Campanet and Buger with their wonderful views of the mountains and surrounding countryside and Cala de Sant Vincenc with its trio of lovely little beaches, excellent restaurants and bars.
The North Coast has much to offer the adventurous visitor. History, culture, countryside, fine food, entertainment, wonderful sailing and stunning beaches. Don’t expect to get bored.
The Formentor Hotel, a Royal Hideaway Hotel ***** (hotel belonging to Barceló Hotel Group and before Barceló Formentor) is part of the history of Mallorca. Located in one of the most important enclaves of the island, facing the idyllic beach of Formentor, is the perfect place to enjoy a few days of relaxation. Refuge of novelists, poets and musicians in search of inspiration for their works, this boutique hotel has been tightening ties with the culture over the years.
Its rooms and villas dominate the elegance, luminosity and comfort, as well as exclusive views of the sea or the mountains. Without renouncing the traditional Mallorcan essence, they stand out for their classic and select design.
