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.

                                                                                                      Spent a wonderful October break in this apartment, which is in a fabulous location, literally a stones-throw from the beautiful cove, just beyond the private pool, immediately below the spacious balcony. Was wonder to eat breakfast and the occasional lunch, dinner and BBQ on the balcony listening to the waves gently lap onto the beach below. Being so secluded the beach was also great for swimming. Our young daughter, a slightly nervous swimmer at the start of the holiday, was full of confidence by the end. The apartment was well-equipped, comfortable and is also well located for access to numerous other beaches around the Cala D'Or area, a short walk to a number of excellent restaurants and I'd thoroughly recommend a trip on the Starfish - a glass-bottom boat which pulls up, again virtually a stones-throw from the apartment. Peter was easy to deal with throughout the booking, and the couple who managed the property for him locally were equally helpful. The weather was great while we were there, despite being late in the season, a pleasant 21C-26C during the day, but cooled down nicely at night and just to add that we had no problems picking up the wifi from the nearby Inturotel. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to a friend or relative and indeed we plan to return ourselves in the not too distant future. Robert S
