Portixol just a few decades ago was a decaying fishing port. It has now been totally transformed into one of the most sought after areas to own an apartment in Majorca.

You’ll now find a lovely marina and a rather quaint beach resort.

The chic yet delightfully cosy Rocamar Restaurant (971 274 644) specialises in fresh fish, seafood and rice dishes. Nice views of Portixol harbour too, and 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.
However, if you come to Portixol there is really only one place to stay. The Hotel Portixol is justifiably famous.
