Make a holiday apartment in Porto Petro your home away from home

Among the small, picturesque fishing villages that pepper the Majorcan coastline, Porto Petro is one of the best kept secrets. On the south eastern corner of the island, Porto Petro is home to only about 500 permanent residents, and the small-town atmosphere and authentic island life is still very much evident despite its proximity to the cosmopolitan and sophisticated resort of Cala D’or. During the summer, the population is swelled by visitors who take holiday apartments in Porto Petro overlooking the pretty harbour or large sprawling villas with private pools on the edge of the village with wonderful sea or rural views. Holiday homes in Porto Petro offer a wide range of accommodations for all size of travelling parties, are well maintained, well furnished and with all mod cons.

Porto Petro is peaceful and attractive and perfect for a relaxing holiday. It may have succumbed to tourism but it hasn’t allowed it to take over. The pace of life remains gentle and enjoys a lovely natural setting. The harbour and marina may now see fancy yachts and motor boats next to the fishing boats, but this all adds to the charm. Holiday apartments in Porto Petro have the advantage of the setting and the close proximity of the beach. as well as to the lovely surrounding rugged countryside.

Things to do in Porto Petro

-Days at the beach can be enjoyed at either of the two small beaches in Porto Petro. Thanks to the anonymity of the village and the existence of the large neighbouring resort, the beaches are not well known and the lovely sands are rarely crowded and the water is safe for swimming.

-Water sports are plentiful in Porto Petro with booking offices on the harbourside. The Scuba centre in the village calls divers for repeat visits to holiday villas in Porto Petro as well as newbies looking to learn to dive. Pool and open water tuition is available. For visitors who want to see marine life without getting kitted out in snorkelling or dive gear can enjoy a trip on the glass bottom boat which operates from the marina to Cala Figuera.

-Outdoor activities are also plentiful, with the surrounding countryside presenting excellent opportunities for hiking and horse riding. There is also a golf course at Vall d’Or, about a 15 minute drive from most Porto Petro holiday homes.

-Cala Mandrango Natural Park is a must visit. Situated on two large bays divided by a rocky promontory, the beaches are superb with golden sands and borders of pine trees. It is a great area for bird watching, especially for water fowl. Cala Mandrago is about a 5 minute drive from Porto Petro or a 30 minute walk. A charming alternative to driving or walking however, is the mini train that runs between Cala d’Or and Cala Mandrago.

-Eating out is a delight in Porto Petro. The harbour’s edge is lined with bars and restaurants with menus dishing up local and Mediterranean cuisine. At lunchtime or evening, enjoy an authentic Majorcan meal of freshly caught seafood while drinking in the views of the pine covered hills in the background or overlooking the harbour out to sea.

The weather in Porto Petro

With long summer days where temperatures can reach in excess of 30°C and mild winters where temperatures rarely drop below 10°C, Porto Petro is an all-year-round destination.

Getting to Porto Petro

Porto Petro is around 60 kms from Palma de Majorca, the island’s capital and location of the island’s only airport.

Transfers are easy enough but a hire car is a good idea for maximising a stay in a lovely Porto Petro holiday home.

The house had so much space and was well equipped, 11 of us never got on top of each other! The pool was great and cracking views, then down the steps to jump into the sea with a short swim to the beach. The Accomodation was really good with the main bedroom having a hot tub, there were ensuites in all the rooms bar one (it was next door in that room). Kitchen was well equipped and nicely laid out and the BBQ area had a beer fridge to make life that little bit easier. I would certainly recommend it and would happily go back again!

There was 15 of us, - 9 adults and 6 children. We were greeted by Thomas who was very helpful, and said any problems at all to ring him- we didn't need to as everything was fine. The villa was very clean, the location great and the layout of the villa was perfect, it was so spacious we never felt to get in each other's way. We made full use of the pool, hot tub, table tennis, and the children loved going on the trampoline. At night we sat outside, having a bar b q, it was really private with the trees around it, We would all definitely recommend this villa,
