Local poet Costa i Llobera masterfully transmitted the beauty and classical resonance of “The Pine Tree of Formentor”, which is still revered at the Literary Conversations held since 1959 at the present-day Hotel Barceló Formentor. In a similar vein, the town’s commitment to the world of culture remains firm to this very day. Tales that are within your reach to listen to, feel, experience or share with whoever you may wish.

Pollença, a place with stories to tell
Picture a place where verdant pine-clad mountains descend to meet an intensely turquoise sea. A town where stunning backdrops, a fascinating past and friendly locals are part of everything you do.
Imagine for a moment the authentic character of a dynamic town, with lively and creative people making Pollença a place with a full of content.
The town, with its old quarter, is the hub of social activities. Outlying resorts round off the destination: the Port, with excellent accommodation and tourist amenities, and Cala Sant Vicenç, with some of the best hotels on the island.
And, of course, the Formentor peninsula. Its famous hotel, its viewing point or its lighthouse have been sources of inspiration for politicians, artists and thinkers alike. Now you can discover them too.
Welcome to Pollença, a place with stories to tell.

Can Cullerassa is situated at 1,5 kilometres from Port de Pollença, on its coast there is the mouth of the Torrent de Sant Jordi and in Puig de Santuiri you will find Can Daniel Gran, the biggest talaiotic village of Majorca.
This quiet beach is a stony area which is very long, but narrow at the same time, the pebbles are mixed to a fine-grained sand and seaweed due to the sea currents, as a result of a strong wind blowing from the east that reaches this unsheltered coast. At a few metres from this coastal stretch of Pollença there are some enormous pine trees.
The straight coastline of this beach finishes at an artificial breakwater that separates it from Platja de Llenaire. This public and free breakwater is used as landing stage for small boats with trailer.
The marine and underwater conditions are not very good for anchoring boats because it is open to the sea and unsheltered from the air blowing from the east. This is positive for the windsurfers who have found here their favourite place on the majorcan coast to do this sport. These ideal conditions for windsurfing explain that there have been Spanish and European championships here. At 0,9 nautical miles there is Port de Pollença.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The private car can be left on a free parking area. You can also reach this beach with the public transport.
These characteristics explain that the beach is not very crowded, there are mostly local visitors and at night some fishers.
