Mallorca - North Coast
Stretching from the approach to Cape Formentor to Alcudia bay, the northern coastline of Mallorca offers a rich and varied landscape. Between Soller and Cape Formentor, the coast is rugged and wild, with steep hillsides dropping straight to the sea and a few “Calas” where yachts will find shelter in settled weather. Further to the east, the large bays of Pollensa and Alcudia open up on to lower grounds, with a choice of anchorages and marinas. Port de Pollensa and Port d’Alcudia are good bases to visit the inland villages of the same names, with their mazes of narrow streets and alleys, Roman ruins and early fortifications. The bay of Alcudia is lined with a long and narrow sandy beach, popular with tourists during the season. It’s harbour boasts the largest and best equipped marina along this stretch of coastline.
