The Delightful Resort of Porto Colom Mallorca

Founded in the 13th century, the small fishing village of Porto Colom on the south-east coast of Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands, Spain, is now a popular but generally unspoilt holiday resort, which retains much of its traditional charm. The picturesque natural harbour is one of the best on the island, and is dotted with local fishing craft, which still ply their trade along this coast. The fine beach at Cala Marcal is safe and clean and great for families, offering the usual facilities. Porto Colom has a reasonable choice of facilities and is renowned for its seafood restaurants, supplying meals of freshly caught fish. The town has a regular bus service with the capital Palma de Mallorca an ancient city which is well worth a visit. Porto Colom Map.
