Pollensa properties tend to command a higher price than the Port of Alcudia. The area is highly sought-after and as such any purchase in the area is an excellent investment prospect. However Alcudia is stones throw from the Port of Pollensa and properties there tend to offer many of the advantages which make Pollensa so popular, while at the same time representing excellent value for money.
