Built into the Bay of Pollença on Mallorca's north coast, most of Puerto Pollenca’s port installations are situated on an artificial island on the seaward breakwater. As this is also where large yachts berth, some form of shore transport is essential. Across the bay lies the Alcudia peninsula, and beyond it the huge Bay of Alcudia, with its many excellent beaches. The area is relatively quiet and peaceful in comparison to the busy urban surroundings of the capital city. There are plenty of leisure opportunities to be had in the area, including diving, canoeing, fishing and regatta sailing.
