HomeAway offers a large number of beautiful seaside holiday apartments in Portixol with some that are just a few steps away from sandy beaches and a few minutes walk from majorca’s top cultural attractions. Apartments range from 1 to 4 bedrooms and are all luxuriously furnished. Many rentals are located within complexes with swimming pools, fitness centres and other amenities.

Things to do in Portixol

Portixol was a sleepy fishing village before majorca was transformed into a holiday destination. It is situated on a small harbour and is a scenic extension of Palma de majorca full of waterside restaurants, hotels, apartment stays and resorts. Portixol is within walking distance from fabulous beaches and all the historic sights and popular nightlife spots in Palma de majorca.

-Passeig des Born is just inland from Portixol’s harbour. Passeig des Born is a beautiful pedestrian street that has been compared to Las Ramblas in Barcelona. The tree-lined pathway is home to numerous trendy cafes and restaurants that are great for a late morning breakfast or late night tapas, or lunch/dinner in preference of making use of the kitchen facilities in Portixol holiday apartments.

-Banys Arabs or The Arab Baths to give them their English name in Palma de majorca act as a reminder of the island’s rich history. Dating from the 10th century, these baths are the only remaining structural evidence of the Arab reign over the sunny island. Tucked away in Palma’s Gothic Quarter, the baths still retain distinctive archways and exposed bricks show off the craftsmanship of a 1000 year old civilisation.

-Palma Cathedral is Palma de majorca’s most prominent historic building with stunning Roman Gothic architectural features. The origins of the monumental structure date back all the way to the 1200s, but construction was not completed until the 1600s. Famed Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi had a hand in helping restore the cathedral in the 1900s and contributed to its aesthetic detailing. Today visitors are welcome to step inside the cathedral and view its beautiful nave.

-Playa de Palma is a pretty white sand beach just a few minutes from most Portixol holiday apartments, and is an extremely popular spot for those staying in and around Palma de majorca. The sunny spot is perfect for sunbathing and its warm shallow blue waters are also ideal for swimming. The beach is backed by a paved promenade and is close to shopping, cafes and restaurants.

-At Palma Aquarium over 8000 animals and 700 species call this amazing place home. As one of the top family-friendly destinations for visitors in Portixol holiday homes, this marine park and education centre features a slew of activities and exhibits that the whole family can enjoy. Visitors can learn all about life in the Mediterranean Sea in addition to exhibits focused on tropical sea life, sharks and jellyfish.

The weather in Portixol
