Located just a short distance from Palma city centre, Portitxol is a charming spot, full of character and guaranteed to surprise and delight visitors. A world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this former small fishing harbour retains all its original character, which has given it the picturesque appearance it boasts today.
Nestling between Can Pere Antoni and El Molinar, the Portitxol quarter boasts a special charm that can be instantly seen and felt on the promenade that runs along the seafront, welcoming visitors to this magical place. Spectacular scenery, the sea breeze and an amazing sense of calm are the hallmarks of Portitxol.
On the seafront, dotted between the traditional low-rise fishing cottages and other more modern constructions that blend in perfectly, you’ll discover numerous bars and restaurants where you can enjoy wines, cocktails and delicious Mediterranean dishes – ranging from shellfish and freshly caught fish to mouthwatering rice dishes, tapas or tasty filed llonguet bread rolls and pa amb oli – bread with grated tomato and olive oil. And after a scrumptious meal or snack, we recommend you enjoy a relaxing stroll around the cobbled streets and take the time to explore the tree-lined Es Born d’Es Molinar walk.
If your wish-list includes admiring a stunning sunrise or sunset, Portitxol offers you the chance to do just that from any of its café terraces, the many benches dotted along the promenade or the fabulous beaches, such as the small El Portitxolet cove, where the sound of the waves gently lapping on the shore is an invitation to relax in this seaside paradise. You’ll often see the locals on the rocky areas, their favourite place for sports fishing, and you’ll also be able to spot fans of surfing or paddle surfing trying to keep their balance on their boards.
Are you a sports lover or fancy staying active during your holiday? Portitxol is ideal for taking long walks along the seashore or to go jogging against a breathtaking natural backdrop. You can also hire a bicycle and enjoy a ride to Molinar, or, if you’re feeling energetic, as far as Can Pastilla.
Inspiration, beauty and leisure come together in Portitxol, where you’ll enjoy a unique experience characterised by all the elegance and charm of the Mediterranean.
