Now you can enjoy the last paradise in Mallorca

Quiet,  sunny holidays enjoying the peace and tranquillity offered by Porto Colom. Enjoy the tranquil fishing port, one of the largest natural harbours on the island, a haven for many boats during the summer seeking calm waters. Great place for those looking for the fishing village charm of yesteryear.

Highlights include the classic lighthouse on the bay and the sanctuary of San Salvador seen close by in the surrounding hills. The walks through the port are a wonder that thousands of tourists discover every year. The strong growth experienced by Mallorca, following the massive influx of tourists and hotel construction have failed to destroy the picture of Porto Colom.

Brash modernity has passed it by preserving the charming fishing port of a bygone era.

Beach

Also required is a visit to the port “old” and the church that has the most genuine charm of a fishing port. Purchases from the port area are divided in a fair selection of shops for essential purchases every day, but on Tuesday a market is mounted in the center of town
