Get a waterside perspective on the island during a boat trip to the Port of Pollensa, where you can enjoy leisure time to explore the marina and charming port town.
I would like to have a stop for the lighthouse at the tip of Cap de Formentor rather than the market. The cafe, orange juice, nuts and other local stuffs were nice but I don't like those counterfeits from China or those seriously homogenous souvenirs.
Very good tour. Was a full day - picked up at hotel on time then had several other pick ups en route to joining main bus in Palma. Took about an hour to do this. Guide Sebastian was excellent - described in 4 languages - Spanish, French, German and English. We stopped for 1.5 hrs at Sineu market - very large. Recommend you purchase picnic here as when you get to Formentor for the lunch stop there is only one cafe and was very busy on our day. We stopped at a viewpoint by Alcudia - stunning views. Then dropped down into Formentor and spent 1.5 hrs on beach. Then took boat for 30 mins to Porto Pollenca- would have liked some time here but did not stop. Then direct back to Palma. If you are staying in tbe South this trip gives you a good overview of the centre, the Tramuntana and the north coast. Would recommend - good value for money.
Great day out, picked up at hotel on time. Picked up more passengers from other hotels locally then off to the market for 2 hours, great experience. Best tip for the day is to buy fruit, ham and cheeses for lunch later in the day lunch not included in trip. Scenic drive to next stop at Cap de Formentor --spectacular views check out photos. Then to the beach at Formentor for lunch. Lovely beach but only one beach bar for food which is expensive see earlier tip. Boat trip for 25 minutes across the bay to Port de Pollenca to be picked up by bus for return trip. Really great value tour lasting around 8 hours. Only slight negative was most people were German speaking so most of the commentary was in German, though some was in English and french.
Great, you see most of the north of Mallorca, I would recommend this trip because you see beautiful Formentor. Only thing is that we didn't have opportunity to take photo from the Colomer viewpoint there was a lot of parked cars and bus couldn't park. Also, when you arrive to Port of Pollensa, trip is over and you go directly to bus and back to Mallorca, so no free time in Pollensa.
I went on the Tuesday trip, stopping in Alcudia market along the way to Formentor. The roman city ruins were visible from the bus, upon entering the city. The market location was great, between old walls, there was plenty of time there to enjoy a fresh orange juice really good, sweet oranges.
Originally, I thought that being seated at the back of the bus is the worst, but... when the bus climbed towards the viewpoint of Colomer, from the back seat there were amazing views of the bay, so I changed my mind and appreciated the seat. The viewpoint is located among spectacular, breathtaking cliffs, surrounded by surreal dark blue water.
The beach of Formentor was crowded, since it is sought after by tourists. The water was really clear and if you're looking for the shade at noon, there are pine woods all around.
The boat trip to the port of Pollenca was refreshing, although there were quite a few waves, right after departure. The coastline was nice, we were able to admire interesting buildings from the sea.
The guide provided information about the cities we saw from the bus, and also about the island in general.
If you enjoy history and nature, I recommend this trip.
Although this trip was a good value for the most part, I would have preferred to spend less time at the beach portion In Formentor. . The Sinua market visit was very enjoyable and held a wide variety of offerings from lace blouses to olive wood utensils! There was also entertainment in the market adding to the festive ambiance and the pricing on most items was very good. I only wish I'd had more room in my suitcase to bring things back home. Our guide was very thorough in his knowledge and did an excellent job organizing while in the field and narrating on the bus. We went by many points of interests on our journey and made a stop at a stunning cliff side vantage point. In the trip description, it states lunch in the Port of Pollensa but as it turned out we took a ferry from Pollensa to Formentor and stayed there for beach and lunch. The problem with having lunch in Formentor is there are only a couple of restaurants so the one restaurant with table service and a water view was wickedly overpriced for what we got - a 21 E tasteless pizza which we split because the prices on everything were crazy. Its unfortunate we did not make our lunch stop in Pollensa which was a cute port side town with a variety of dining establishments. I only wish this portion of the day had been shorter - like 30 minutes max in Formentor. Overall I would say the price of this tour is inexpensive for all that you see and do.
