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. Even for those staying in a villa, Porto Colom can then be reached easily by shuttle bus, although car hire is also available from the airport.

Superb location, large villa perfect for big family groups, fantastic outdoors terrace area

5 of 5
We were four ladies looking for a short break in the sun. We wanted a large villa with individual bedrooms and bathrooms, a pool and nearby facilities (bars, restaurants) we could walk to. This fitted the bill perfectly. The villa itself is maybe a little old-fashioned in décor (although the living room is fab, particularly comfortable) but the space available and the outdoors pool area and other additional balconies were wonderful. Everywhere was very clean and extremely well-supplied with everything you could ever need. You can walk to the beach and restaurants in 5 mins and they really are excellent restaurants. Great area, very Spanish and local (we went early June) and not too busy, but not too quiet either! Tony, the host, was very friendly and helpful and even transported us to and from the airport, for a small fee. We're already planning on going back there.

Wonderful Villa in an amazing location with everything you need to make your stay fabulous

5 of 5
We spent 8 nights in this amazing Villa the first week in June with the family, 9 of us in all. It is so spacious with loads of storage/cupboard/wardrobe space for everyone in all of the bedrooms with very comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms to each bedroom, again with loads of storage. The Villa is well equipped with everything you could wish for during your stay, spacious and comfortable seating in so many different areas all of which had the most impeccable views which were to die for!! Something we will all miss the most I think. You just could not wish for a better spot, watching all the boats coming in and out of the harbour is something you would never get tired of!! The pool was wonderful too (pitty it wasn't heated though as it was a little chilly to get in at first) but still wonderful views whilst swimming, splashing around or lazing on an inflatable Lilo!! The Hot tub on top floor was great in the evening too watching the stars and those wonderful views all around. The Pool table/Air hockey in the basement was great for the kids, though this was one table which switched (very easily) from one to the other rather than separate tables as we thought there would be. There are lots of lovely places to eat not too far away, maybe 15mins walk around the gorgeous harbour so again some lovely sights to see, or just a few minutes in the car. The BBQ was great at the Villa too though if you couldn't bear to tear yourselves away from those wonderful views! Fabulous market too in Portocolom town on the Tuesday, not sure if it is there every week, but worth going if it is. Beautiful Beach at Cala Marcal is worth visiting too. Only a few minutes by car or a nice stroll via the shops takes about 15minutes. The whole holiday was perfect and we would love to return again very soon, in the meantime we have 100's of photographs to look back on to remember our 8 nights in paradise! Julie Evans.
