Make a holiday rental home or villa in Porto Colom, Spain your home away from home

Porto Colom, Majorca is a small, traditional fishing village, with a beautiful natural harbour that is usually packed with luxury yachts. Having resisted much of the commercialisation which has overtaken many of the surrounding areas, Porto Colom offers visitors a refreshingly laid-back experience of life on Mallorca, while at the same time never being more than a short drive from the busier resorts of the Balearic Islands, Spain.

Things to do in Porto Colom, Spain

The Cala Mercal beach is the main beachfront area in Porto Colom, the perfect place for a spot of sunbathing or to relax with a book. The warm water temperatures along the east coast also make it the ideal spot for a dip in the ocean, with calm waters ideal for swimming.

Near to the beach there are also plenty of cafes and restaurants, where visitors can sample local seafood dishes as well as international fare. Although not as lively as some of the other resorts along the coast, Porto Colom nightlife is still good during the summer, with many of featuring family-friendly entertainment.

A small but unique collection of shops along the promenade are also worth a browse, and can be a great place to pick up a few holiday souvenirs.

The fact that Porto Colom is a fishing village means that it is the ideal destination for any keen fishermen, with several operators offering fishing charters. Other leisurely activities including golf and tennis can also be found close to the resort.

The scenery around the east coast of Mallorca is quite picturesque and there are several pleasant walking and cycling tracks around the town which can be easily reached from self-catering accommodation in and around Porto Colom.

Places to visit on holiday in Porto Colom, Spain

The capital of Mallorca, Palma, is only just over a half hour drive from Porto Colom and is well worth a day trip. The Gothic cathedral is one of the highlights for many visitors, along with the Palau de Almudaina, a Moorish palace which now serves as the Majorcan residence of the Spanish royal family.

Weather in Porto Colom, Spain

One of the main reasons Mallorca is so popular as a summer holiday destination is thanks to the predictable summer weather, which sees temperatures in the mid twenties and very little rain. Porto Colom therefore makes an ideal summertime destination, but can also be a pleasant winter escape, with temperatures usually staying above 10C even in January and February.

Flights to Porto Colom, Spain

Palma International Airport (PMI) serves the island of Mallorca, and is located around 60km west of Porto Colom. Most of the major British airlines fly to this airport direct from the UK, including British Airways, easyJet and Ryanair, many on a daily basis over the summer months.

A Villa that offers a relaxing holiday

5 of 5
The villa was everything it stated and some in terms of the location and facilities if offered. Within a 5-minute walk you could be on the seafront or at the local shops. The restaurants in the immediate area were fantastic and offered a wide choice of freshly cooked food and all within minutes from the villa. We were a party of 10 and the villa offered a very relaxing place to sit by the pool, swim or one relax in one of the many well shaded areas in the garden. The villa was well stocked with plenty of cooking, crockery facilities. We also had access to the many fridges, even one at poolside, to keep food and refreshments cool. The bedrooms were very nicely decorated and furnished. All, bar one poolside bedroom had a/c, which offered a great way to keep cool and sleep at night, as weather was hot during our stay. Tony and his brother-in-law Toni were very helpful in keeping us updated and on arrival. One slight problem we had was fixed with minutes of reporting it. I would not hesitate in using this villa again, as we loved the area of Portocolom and what is has to offer. Thank you once again Tony and family.

Calm and peaceful villa

5 of 5
We stayed here with our two children aged 6 and 9 in June/July and absolutely loved it. It is completely self contained but the owners are on site in case of any problems, but we always felt like we had privacy. The villa itself was very comfortable, clean and tidy with everything you need. It is situated down a country lane so it is extremely peaceful but within walking distance of the town, Portocolom. We walked there on the last night with our children and it took less then 10 minutes. The pool at the villa was clean with lovely loungers with cushions and big umbrellas for some shade. The grounds of the villa are beautiful, the owners have created a little paradise with lots of mature trees and plants. I have to mention Jamie's mission to keep the villa and the grounds bug free! He has put a lot of effort into keeping all the mosquitos and other bugs away, and for the first time on an overseas holiday, bites and stings were never an issue for us. It was great! We were really pleased with this little find, lots of lovely restaurants nearby and gorgeous beaches. Close to the main road and a very easy 45 minute drive from Palma. Highly recommended!!
