Lucas Fox guide to…North Mallorca

For many the area of North Mallorca is the most beautiful and untouched area of all the Balearic islands. The aged olive groves, citrus orchards, green pine trees, grey limestone rock and almond blossoms have been captured by numerous artists and photographers over the years. Full of contrasts, the region boasts a dramatic coastline, mountains, secluded coves and pretty towns. The magnificent Tramuntana mountain range sets an enviable backdrop against the towns and villages steeped in history.
The wild shoreline is probably best typified by the Formentor Peninsula, which juts out into the Mediterranean from the northern tip of the island. Just inland from the Formentor is the chic town of Pollensa, with its historic centre and fashionable cafes and shops.  Heading west along the winding mountain road you’ll come to the attractive old town of Soller with its upmarket port and charming narrow streets. The town is also one of the key stops along the North Coast’s scenic hiking routes. With 14km of beaches, Alcudia is the main tourist resort of North Mallorca and is particular popular with families. The picturesque old streets and bustling main square of Alcudia old town is also worth a visit.

It is not just the geography that makes this area of Mallorca so special. The attraction comes from its many music festivals, bustling markets, sailing, shopping, hiking and cosmopolitan mix of people.
Just approximately 35 minutes from the airport, the area is served by a sound infrastructure of good roads, public transport, many amenities,  several marinas and sporting facilities from horse riding, nautical sports, kite surfing, diving, tennis, hiking and swimming. The area of North Mallorca is also renowned as a golfers paradise with seven courses within easy driving distance. Golf Pollensa is a nine hole course integrated into the beautiful local environment with panoramic views over the Tramuntana mountains.  Golf Alcanada is the only 18 hole course that is right by the sea. It has 58 well placed green side fairway bunkers with challenging greens and tee shots.
