Situated just a short distance along the coast from La Seu, Palma’s beautiful Gothic cathedral, Portixol’s quaint little terraced houses have been totally renovated and you will also find a lovely marina and a small beach resort.
Portixol was a decaying fishing port just a few decades ago. It has now been totally transformed into one of the most sought-after areas to own a property in Majorca.
The old fishing village of Portixol has become a trendy location packed with family friendly restaurants, cafes and bars overlooking the harbour, attracting an international crowd. The chic yet delightfully cosy Rocamar Restaurant (971 274 644) specialises in fresh fish, seafood and rice dishes. It also enjoys nice views over Portixol harbour and is a great place to watch the sun go down while enjoying a cocktail.
Many visitors and residents of Portixol gravitate to the upmarket Nassau Beach Club to enjoy fine dining and spectacular views over the bay. If you come to Portixol there is really only one place to stay. The Hotel Portixol is justifiably famous. A cool, urbane location overlooking the Bay of Palma, it offers some lovely arty touches.
Portixol has frequent, regular buses into Palma to the west. Or why not walk into Palma along the delightful promenade hugging Palma Bay? If you’re feeling particularly active, Portixol has several shops that hire out bikes and roller skates. What’s more, Palma International Airport is just a few minutes away from Portixol by car! Little wonder so many come to this lovely spot to look for a house for sale in Portixol.
A great time to see charming Portixol at its best is to visit the festival Nit de Foc every June. The beach around Portixol is lit up with candles and tea lights as this charming, former fishing village parties.
