Default Google Street View now includes PP!

I've not seen this mentioned on here before but while researching my next trip to PP I have noticed that Google Street View now includes PP. I have just spent a very pleasurable 30 minutes "walking" around PP using Street View.

For those of you who have never used Street View before click here to go to PP on Google Maps. Click on the pink "A" and then click on Street View. You should now be "standing" on the roundabout next to the Marina and bus stop. You can explore by clicking the arrows on the screen. Enjoy!

Great fun.

I wonder when they shot that - there's hardly a soul around

Oh no! That is just terrible!!! Have just wandered down the roads and looked out to the sea by the apartment too! How on earth will we all survive now with virtual walks available to tease us!

Love it! Thanks Simon!

I think I remember someone talking about the googlevan wandering about back in Feb - see http://www.forum.puertopollensa.com/...-pollensa.html. We thought it would look pretty gloomy but I have found our apt with a nice blue sky!

Many thanks, Simon. Had a good peek around yesterday evening.

Even harder to wait another 6 weeks. Had a look at Bellavista too, so I know where to go.

OMG, this is so addictive!!! Just been over the hill to Formentor Beach. Checked our Hotel Villa Singala - Josep won't be happy - shows the builders hard at work with scaffolding up Their work has made great improvement to the hotel, but prospective new customers will jump on Street View and just see the builders - not really the impression you would want to give.

Lovely way to remember holidays and plan the next trip

You can also link directly to a camera view, click the ' chain' logo at top right to get the link.

This is just how I remember my February Birthday holidays, clear blue skies and no people

A screen capture that shows how to get the direct link:



1. Click the chain logo
2. Copy the code from the top link.

Paste it into a forum post

Excuse my very basic photoshop skills...

Fantastic!!

They even went up our Calle. I can't quite see our balconies, but it's close enough.

Walked down to the beach on it at the weekend, and then all fell about laughing at a local builder stood on step ladders on his van roof fixing a sign above a shop
