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

Thanks to a warm Mediterranean climate, visitors can consider taking a holiday home in Porto Petro to enjoy some terrific summer sunshine or to escape the cold North European winters. 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. There’s a busy flight schedule into the airport from all over Europe and also, ferries from Barcelona dock in Palma or Alcudia. Transfers are easy enough but a hire car is a good idea for maximising a stay in a lovely Porto Petro holiday home.

Really lovely apartment and location

5 of 5
The apartment was lovely with fantastic views, and great outside space. Internally it was very comfortable with all we needed. Mercedes was a very nice host and left us to ourselves, whilst at same time made sure we knew how to contact her should we need to. The fridge was stocked with some milk, water and beers which were greatly appreciated on our arrival. Everything walking distance so all in all a great find.

Lovely place to stay

5 of 5
We've been to Cala D'or (and more specifically Cala Gran where this apartment is) 3 times now and this is certainly the nicest place we have stayed in. The location is perfect - it really couldn't be better. You can sit on the balcony and look over the large and impressive pool, with the gorgeous sandy beach right behind and accessible through the locked gate at the bottom of the path. Superb! The sun shines all day long on the balcony too! The apartment itself is great for a family - our two kids loved the large bedroom with its ensuite bathroom, while my wife and I slept in the double room off the living room, also with its ensuite shower room. The centre of Cala D'Or is only a couple of minutes walk away, where there are a multitude of lovely restaurants and shops. When we return to Cala D'Or in the future, there's no doubt that this is the place we will want to stay in!
