Sights in Portocolom
1) The old town
Just go for a walk in the old town, take a nice photo at the “Riueto” with its colorful houses or eat a cafe con leche or a small tapa with squid and meatballs at the famous “Cova des ases” bar (this is the regular bar of most Mallorquins in Portocolom).
2) Sa Cova Foradada (translated the pierced cave)
Here is the hotspot for photos in Portocolom, a photo through the cave made of waves with the Portocolom lighthouse in the background, that will make every influencer’s heart beat faster!
Things to do in Portocolom
1) Beaches in Portocolom
Portocolom has some of the most beautiful natural beaches on the island. Here is a short list because we already have another article in our blog for this topic. The beaches are; Arenal, Arenal Petit, Cala Marsal, Cala Brafi, S’Algar (with or without sand depending on the weather this year). If we forgot a beach please let us know in the comments!
2) Shopping tour at the port
On the harbor promenade from Club Náutico to Cala Marsal beach (and its side streets), there are many shops, art galleries, corner shops and clothing stores. One or the other shop also sells locally designed products, or Britta Hurther’s art gallery, with always new locally designed products apart from the stunningly beautiful pictures..
3) Water sports and activities
Rent a boat, paddle across the sea with jet skis or simply be sporty with a kayak/stand-up paddle surf excursion. There are several places and services where you can do surfing or diving courses in addition to the activities mentioned above.
4) Sports activities outside of the water
Whether you want to do a little bike tour, or just like to walk or hike along the cliffs. There is enough time to pass the time in the fresh air, even outside of the water. You can order bicycles from several rental services or pick them up directly.
5) Golf (yes, we’ll take that as a separate point to go into more detail)
The Golf Club Vall d’Or is just heaven for every golf player. With 18 holes and most of them, a great view of the sea and Portocolom, no golfer can complain (except maybe about the sun, but that’s probably complaining at a high level .. 🙂 ). After the game simply enjoy a sundowner in the Maxime Restaurant, or at the same place at lunchtime recharge your batteries with a club sandwich or the delicious lunch menu (price-performance ratio unbeatable!).
6) Fitness & Training in the fitness center
Yes, you can also find a fitness center in Portocolom if you like to work out. The fitness center is called “Ben Gym” and also offers other activities such as playing paddle.
7) Weekly market in Portocolom
On Tuesdays and Saturdays there is a weekly market in Portocolom, where you can buy fresh vegetables and fruit, but also one or two small gifts or souvenirs for friends and family!
8) Go out to eat (yummy yummy!)
In Portocolom you will find a wide range of restaurants, cafeterias and bars. Each restaurant has its own concept and it is worth trying them all (although we all have our own favourites, we recommend them all). Here is our personal Top Restaurant List in Portocolom (Click Here).
