Vacation rentals in the north of Mallorca
The north of the large Balearic island is generally regarded as a natural paradise that is particularly popular with hikers, nature lovers and cyclists. No wonder you'll also find a wide range of holiday accommodation, from small apartments for spontaneous racing or mountain bike training camps to huge fincas with swimming pools and gardens. The cultural centre with the highest density of holiday accommodations is Alcudia with the nearby seaside resort Puerto Alcudia. But also in Pollenca with its modern seaside resort Puerto Pollenca as well as in Can Picafort and Arta you will find what you are looking for. But those who like it a little more quiet can settle in a finca in Cala Sant Vicenc in the northwest or alternatively in Son Serra de Marina.
Holidays in the North of Mallorca
Travelers and Activities
Do you not only have an eye for breathtaking nature, but also a heart for history? Then the north of Mallorca is made for extensive explorations to historical sights like the hermitage Ermita de La Victòria or the neo-Gothic church Església de Sant Jaume in Alcudia. Also worth a visit are the Castell del Rei, the centuries-old olive tree "Na Flamarades" and the prehistoric necropolis of Cala Sant Vicenc. Apart from the town centres, which often date from the Middle Ages and the Moorish period, you will often come across remains from the Roman period in the vicinity of Pollenca, Arta and Alcudia. Among the highlights here, in addition to the excellently preserved Roman bridge Pont Romà, is the excavation site of the ancient city of Pollentia, which still impresses today with colonnades and monumental buildings such as the theater.An Eldorado for cyclists
Do you know where many professional cyclists like the multiple Tour de France winner Christopher Froome get their shape for the highlights of the season? They already suspect it, in the north of Mallorca. No wonder that even ambitious mountain bikers and racing cyclists feel at home here. While the Tramuntana mountain range attracts visitors with numerous challenging mountain routes such as the legendary Sa Calobra serpentine tracks and breathtaking views, the plain to the south also invites you to enjoy a leisurely ride among almond, orange and olive groves. The restaurant "Tolo's" in Puerto Pollensa is a very hot tip for all those who would like to meet some of the great cyclists.
Things to know
Since in the north of the island much revolves around hiking, nature experiences and cycling, the main travel season extends to the period between the end of February and the beginning of June as well as the months of October and November. Then not only numerous hours of sunshine attract, but also mild temperatures, which make both sightseeing and outdoor sports a particularly pleasant experience. If you don't mind the big summer heat or if you want to spend your beach holiday in the north, you can book your vacation rental for the summer months June to September.Regular events
The north of Mallorca also has a lot to offer in terms of events. The festival "Sant Antoni" starts in mid-January in Arta. The celebrations on Good Friday and Easter, which are particularly pompous in the larger cities of Alcudia and Pollensa and framed by interesting processions and passion plays, are also particularly well known. Other highlights include the festivities in honour of the patron saint of fishermen during the Sant Pere Festival in Alcudia on 29 June, the Sa Fira Fair in September and the Sant Jaume Festival, also held in Alcudia in July.
