Pollenca Boat Rentals
Pollença, Illes Balears
Pollenca (or Pollensa) is a charming town in the northeast corner of Mallorca, an island that is part of Spain. It's near the sea and is close to the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain ranges. This gorgeous contrast makes it an attractive tourist destination. It’s an ancient town that will transport you back in time when you spend a day wandering its stone streets. There are gorgeous beaches nearby in the Port, and lots of delicious restaurants to try.
The best time of year to visit Pollenca is between April and June, or September and October. During these months, the weather will be warm and sunny with a minimal chance of rainfall. During July and August, the weather is fantastic but the tourist crowds swarm the beaches and drive up the price of accommodation. The winters are mild, but the island is quiet and it’s too cold to enjoy a swim in the sea. The winter is also the rainy season on Mallorca.
To get to Pollenca, the easiest way is to fly to Palma de Mallorca and driving, or taking a bus which takes about one hour. If you come by ferry to Palma, you can take the same bus from the Estació Intermodal.
