Portixol, Palma de MallorcaCharming beach resort right next to Palma de Majorca
The former fishing village of Portixol lies at the end of the promenade running along Playa de Palma. The charming little village has recently moved from "up-and-coming" to cool in it's own right and the sea front properties, former fisherman's cottages, have become highly sought after. Contemporary bars and restaurants line the sea front.
The ring road behind Portixol and one way system in the village itself has kept motorised traffic to a minimum and most people tend to cycle, skate or run along the seafront where a number of cafes and bars offer an ideal place for those who prefer to take it easy. The small beach in the bay is far calmer and more sheltered than the huge, neighbouring Palma beach and although the sand is not as light or fine it is often cleaner. Visit the beach during the Nit de Foc (23rd June) and see it lit by candles and tea lights.
