Summary of the Beach Inspectors
The roughly two kilometre long beach of Bahia de Pollensa is first and foremost one of the best spots on the Balearic Islands for learning to kitesurf or improving your skills. The shallow water in the Bay of Alcúdia makes it easy to climb onto the board again and again and invites you to discover the art of allowing yourself to be pulled across the sea by a kite, or to try out new tricks. You can park easily at the side of the road that runs directly alongside the beach and if you bring your own equipment you'll only have to carry it a few metres. A number of schools and instructors offer materials and courses. The beach is not ideal for bathers thanks to the noisy road, the large amount of seaweed on shore and the high volume of traffic in the water. Having said that, there's nothing to stop you taking a refreshing dip in the water.

Bahia de Pollensa - Long, narrow, natural beach in the Bay of Alcúdia

In the Bay of Alcúdia in north Majorca, Bahia de Pollensa beach stretches around two kilometres along the road that links Alcúdia and Port de Pollença. The beach here is narrow and lies close to the road. Large areas of the sand are covered with dried seaweed which, under recently introduced regulations, can no longer be cleared away. This is because Bahia de Pollensa is protected and the seaweed of the Posidonia Oceanica species has a purifying effect on the water and helps to prevent the sand from being carried away by wind and the current. In addition, the charadrius, a little bird that has been declared a protected species by UNESCO, nests on the ground here.

Only a few bathers choose to lie in the sun and bathe on Bahia de Pollensa beach thanks to its proximity to the road and the large amount of seaweed. But one group who certainly don't let these things put them off are the kitesurfers and windsurfers. The conditions are good here and it's an ideal spot for beginners to have their first go with a board and kite or sail because the Bay of Alcudía is very shallow. The waves are very moderate and you can stand up a long way into the water, which saves energy and frustration when you keep falling off the board and having to climb back on.

As a result there are a few surf schools along the beach, which is divided into three sections - Se Marina, Can Cap de Bou and Can Cullerassa. Here you can book everything from a taster course or a training course lasting several days through to a surfing holiday. Of course, you can also just hire equipment if you already know "which way the wind's blowing" - and the wind blows superbly here at what is arguably the best surfing spot in the north of Majorca.
