With its beautiful white-sand beaches framed in picturesque rocky points, Puerto Pollensa (Pollença) has become a magnet for holiday-goers with a taste for the finer things in life. Art museums, galleries, and fine restaurants all offer their pleasures, or simply enjoy the scenery from the seaside pedestrian path, called the "Pine Walk" for the shady evergreens above. Of course the carved sapphire inlets, revealed with a trip in a glass-bottomed boat, and soft sands offer all sorts of maritime fun.
For instance, book a boat or bus to majestic Cap de Formentor, a long and narrow point topped with a truly spectacular rocky peak. Fringed in forest and fine white beaches, it is one of the most impressive sites in the Caribbean. Adventurous types can climb to the top, or just enjoy the splendid views from the fine bay.
