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.

Family summer Holiday

4 of 5
We stayed at this lovely villa in late August 2017. We were a family of 6 including my husband and I, our two children aged 3 and 7 and their 2 grandparents. It suited us perfectly! It is not a massively touristy area, but still has everything in the town that you could possibly need and has a nice relaxed atmosphere and feels very safe. Transfer from the airport was an easy 45-50 mins by taxi and we didn't need a car when we were there as all the shops, restaurants and lovely beach were in easy walking distance for both the young and old alike. The villa itself is lovely, but the real gem is the pool area. We literally lived outside by the pool as all the equipment and facilities you really need are right out by the pool. We only used the villa to sleep and the upper terrace for an evening drink and the rest of the time were out down by the pool. It was a fantastic week of outdoor living which the whole family embraced. The owners Cati and Toni were also really lovely both during the booking process, answering numbers questions, and recommending reliable airport taxi right through the very warm welcome on our arrival. Toni's mum also kindly checked on us in the week to ensure we had everything we needed. The whole family agreed it was a fabulous relaxing and special holiday. Its not often you go somewhere on holiday and it exceeds your expectations, but this really did! Thank you for having us to stay Cati and Toni!

Excellent villa for a family holiday

5 of 5
We have just returned from 10 day stay at the villa. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by Tony and the chilled water in the outside fridge was much appreciated. This is the best villa we have stayed in, it was well equipped with large quantities of crockery, cutlery, cookware and glasses. There was plenty of space both inside and outside for our family of 8 to spread out in and not be on top of each other, the good wifi connection an added bonus for the teenagers. The pool area was excellent and provided both sun and shade. The BBQ was put to good use cooking the fresh meat and fish purchased at the local supermarket. We also enjoyed evening drinks on the lounge balcony. The villa is situated in an ideal location and within easy walking distance of the port area and the nearby beach of Cala Marcal. There are a wide range of restaurants however we did find that some of these had reserved tables so it is advisable to book in advance for the popular ones. There are lots of surrounding beaches to visit if you have a car. We had a relaxing and enjoyable break in perfect surrounding. Tony and Marie are excellent hosts and provided a friendly but professional service. We can’t wait to return !
