Its on the right along the one way street leading to the Pollenca road.

It is however a bit of a walk.

 

 

 

Shops

 

 

The Formentor Store

This is the closest small supermarket.

Limited but useful. Usual groceries, bread water, wine, Croissons, Ensaimadas, cheese, etc,  

Expanding into cafe and takeaway food.

About 50 yards away, over the road behind the building leading to the port.

 

 

 

Voramar

Medium size store with a good range of food etc.

Continue along the road to the rear of the building towards the port. Its on the left. You can also get to it along the Pine Walk.

 

 

 

Newspapers

English papers are available in a number of places.

Most supermarkets have them after from about 10am .

Otherwise you will see them on display outside other shops.

 

 

 

 

MARKET DAY

 

 

Puerto Pollenca

Market day is Wednesday in the morning up to 12 noon .

Well worth going to. Lots of Spanish foods, clothes, shoes, flowers, wine, kitchen utensils, etc.

There is always an Indian/Gypsy group performing in the centre. A must to visit.

 

 

 

 

Sea Sports

 

 

Wind surfing, etc

There is an area on the beach where instruction on wind surfing is available.

This is a bit of a walk at the other side of the port.

It is self evident.

 

 

 

Scuba Diving

There are a couple of Scuba Diving Schools who arrange visits to interesting dives. You need to book at their shop. They operate from one of the quays.

If this is of interest I will give you detailed directions to the shop.

Pedalos

These are pedalled floats. Good fun and cheap.

Available along the beach walking along the front.

 

 

 

Rambles

 

 

Boquer Valley

This is great for a small ramble. Take you swimming costume as it leads to a small bay.

En route you will see wild goats and if you are lucky amazing birds.

 

In Pollenca, take any turn off the Pinewalk and then walk along the Calle de Formentor until you come to the Oro Playa apartments. Turn left up the Av de los Bocchoris to the roundabout. The path to Val de Boquer is on the opposite side .
The walk is clearly sign posted. However, at the first gate just before Finca Boquer, there is a large "Privado" sign, telling people to keep out. This is misleading, as it is the main track. As you hike uphill, you go through a pass between two very large rocks. An excellent place to take a breath in the shade. The path then flattens out for 150m. You will pass through two walls and come to a fork in the path. The left side takes you directly down to the cove - very picturesque and superb for swimming. The right fork takes you to the headland with sweeping views of the bay - be `careful as there is a sheer cliff face ahead of you.

 

 

 

Excursions

 

 

Pollenca

This is the nearest small town with a huge history.

The central church was built by the Knights Templar when they owned most of the area. The central square has a number of eating places.

If you continue walking up you will find more smaller eating places, good for coffees and light drinks.

Leading from there are the 365 steps which have a religious significance.

Has a market on Sunday.

You can catch the local bus from the Bus station in the port.

 

 

 

Alcudia

A little further away. More cosmopolitan. Worth a visit if on a longer stay

By bus from the bus station.

Ferrys

The ‘Glass Bottom’ boats provide trips to a number of places.

Basically a day out

In the port.
