Default Tabac

Hi

Does anyone know where I can find a shop selling a range of tabacco products in or near Pollensa.

I have been before and have ended up buying cigarettes in bars because I couldn't find any in supermarkets or garages.

Regards
Niki

Welcome to the forum Nikita

If you are staying in the port there are 3 or 4 tobacconists - I usually use the one on the front near the roundabout about 50 yards along the front.

In the old town there is a toacconist just of the Font de Gall square.

As GG says there are a number in the Port but from experience prices for 200 can be different - the one by the Irish bars/square always seems to have the best deals plus they often throw in a couple of lighters for free.

Hi Nikita

You can't buy cigarettes anywhere else but the official 'Tabac' shops, by law the supermarkets and garages are not allowed to sell tobacco products.
I think you will also find that all the tabac shops have to sell cigarettes at the same price, the exception being the airport which is slightly more expensive.

There are quite a few tobacconists in PP and can be easily recognised by their distinctive brown and yellow signs.

Yes Whaley you are correct, some bars have cigarette machines and as in the UK they are more expensive but only about 15 or 20 cents and at least here you get a "Full" packet not 16 like in the UK.
