Spectacular scenery hits the visitor when travelling north where the island’s famous Tramuntana mountain range extends through to the northern most tip of the island and the Formentor peninsula. Here you will find a beautiful bay and the location of one of the island’s most famous hotels, The Hotel Formentor, which has hosted politicians, celebrities and royalties since 1929 when it first opened.
The ancient Roman Town of Pollensa remains an authentic town with a traditional town square (plaza) where a buzzing Sunday market is held further along, Puerto Pollensa remains popular with tourists who love to stroll along the promenade and its famous Pine Walk. Just beyond this coastline the Albuferia Nature Reserve protects a wonderful range of wildlife and birds, some only found here on the Balearics. A variety of sailing vessels are located in the marina with a year round competitive schedule for smaller racing vessels.
Further along the coast the Roman Town of Alcudia has been restored to retain many original features and create an attractive pedestrian area. The Port of Alcudia has an excellent marina and is also has a regular ferry service to the neighboring islands of Formentor, Menorca and Ibiza. The north has always been a popular spot for holiday homes either in apartments or in large fincas. Families find plenty to do in the summer months and enjoy the well kept, traditional seaside resorts.
