Peurto Pollenca Swimming

Peurto Pollenca Snorkelling

a snorkelling icon
 

It is obvious from the moment you get there that this is a very save place for a swim with very easy access along the whole 2 miles of beach. On the pine walk side of Puerto Pollenca there are many little sandy bays, which are particularly suitable for very young children as it is easy to keep an eye on them and the water is usually very calm.

On the other side of the bay there are two artificial rock breaks in the sea also making for very calm safe areas to swim. Around these breaks there are large shoals of fish, big and small so these are good for a quick snorkel.

There is more than you might think on in the in the water on the Pine Walk side of the Peurto Pollenca bay. Everywhere you swim you will come across large Sea Bass and Sea Bream as well as other smaller shoals of fish. Also in this area I have found two sunken boats, they are hard to find, but once you do they are worth looking around as they are colonised with all manner of life. Just before the Illa d’or hotel you can swim out and you will find some sand and weed banks and in these banks you will find these very large upright shells, I’m not sure what they are called but they remind me of a scene from Alien. There is a picture of two below.

It is not a brilliant place to snorkel but is certainly worth getting in the water.

The Scuba dive shops in Peurto Pollnca, near the harbour also offer snorkel trips, but I have to say I was nor greatly impressed, you would do better getting the boat to Formentor beach or a bus to Cala San Vincente.

We got a bit bored so wandered over the hill to Cala San Vincente for a swim instead. It is wonderful. Deep clear blue water.

Walking Peurto Pollenca To Cala San Vincente

We did it again got the timing all wrong and ended up walking there and back to Cala San Vincente. Still we had a good swim.

Peurto Pollenca

Back in Peurto Pollenca. I feel like I have come home when I get here, love this place. Now, swim first or food?

Peurto Pollenca Snorkelling

Not a bad place for a spot of swimming and snorkelling, had a great time, big fish and these large clam shell things! Great fun.

Puig De Maria Monastery Walk

Now for a nice hot walk up a steep hill in the midday sun :)

Ses Illetes Snorkelling

Got the number 3 bus whilst the rest of the gang went shopping, I went swimming. It's 40 degrees, Swimming! This is a fabulous spot to Snorkel. Had to wander round an army check point to get to the best spot.

Palma

In Palma, the capital of Majorca a vibrant interesting and beautiful city with ports, beaches and great shopping apparently, but I want to go swimming.

Palma Snorkelling

Fantastic city, lots to see and do, OK swimming and snorkelling

Alcudia

Always a good spot to visit, an interesting old walled town, with good shops and restaurants. Having said that we just had a butty.

Alcudia Snorkelling

Bus to Alcudia, 20 minute walk to bays to the the North. Good snorkelling. Walked back to Puerto Pollenca. Cold Lager required.

Boquer Valley Snorkelling

Calm as it gets here in the Boquer today, perfect for a dip. Few jellies around and lots of fish, water is crystal clear. German lady got a leg sting, big screams.

Boquer Valley Walking

Longish hot walk along the Boquer valley today. The ridge to the left is amazing. Greeted by old goats at the end and into the water to cool off.

Formentor Snorkelling

We took a vastly overpriced boat to Formentor beach today, I'm still shaking at having to part with so much for so little. Still the snorkelling is good. Got the bus back!

Colonia Sant Jordi

Colonia Sant Jordi! This place feels more Spanish than most resorts in Majorca, NO CHIP shops. Great beaches, very relaxed.

Colonia Sant Jordi Snorkelling

Some great snorkelling here, but the best spots take a bit of finding. Swimming ia great all over, with lots of sandy beaches and quite shallow for in most places.
