The Perfect Sunday in Pollensa

Apologies that this post is a little late, but moving house has been a little distracting over the last few weeks! As regular readers will know, I spend quite a lot of time in Pollensa on the north of Mallorca.

A few years ago P and I lived there together and we still visit regularly as my parents have a house  there. Over the years I have shared various posts about the beautiful town, but I haven’t yet blogged though about our favourite day there; Sunday. It’s when the town really comes to life, whatever the time of year – there is a wonderful food market in the main square and everyone goes – catching up with friends for a coffee and a croissant is one of the highlights of the morning!

This year we decided to add another element to our perfect Sunday…we rose just before dawn to drive out to the lighthouse at Formentor to watch the sun rise. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world and the drive there is as magical as the destination itself. When we arrived at the Lighthouse we found that we weren’t the only early birds – some keen cyclists as well as a little family of goats were waiting there to greet us!

After a quick walk around the lighthouse, we took lots of photos of the views and then jumped back in the car to head back to Pollensa in time for the market. It really is a feast of the eyes as well as your tummy – the size and colour of the of the produce is amazing – particularly the lettuce and tomatoes – so much tastier than a lot of what we have in the UK, so we stocked up for the week.

After buying all our food and stopping for a coffee at Club Pollensa, our usual Sunday routine would be to head to our favourite restaurant in town, Trencadora, for Sunday lunch. This year it was just too hot to sit in the middle of the day and eat a full lunch (35+ degrees!), so we missed this out, though we did make up for it with some extra evenings there during the week! The food is Italian and delicious, very reasonably priced and the restaurant is set in a lovely walled garden – you really shouldn’t miss a visit there if you find yourself in Pollensa and hungry.

Instead of our Trencadora home we just headed home to relax by the pool with some magazines and a chilled glass of Ros̩ Рutter bliss.

If only we were still there!
