Porto Petro Holidays

Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View enjoy a relaxed way of life with very quiet days and nights

The quiet resort of Porto Petro is situated on the south east coast of Majorca and is centred around a sleepy harbour. There is a small beach tucked away and can be very hard to find but certainly worth it when you do.

There are a few bars and restaurants around the harbour but that is about all. There is a road train that links Porto Petro with Cala d'Or and Cala Mondrago, the ideal way to get about and see a little of the area.

The airport is about 60km away so transfer times are not too bad.

Holidays in Porto Petro enjoy a relaxed way of life with very quiet days and nights so if you are looking for a livelier pace of life you could venture into one of the neighbouring resorts.

Once upon a time Porto Petro in the South East was a small and tranquil fishing village and although its harbour now has a marina and the white washed cottages lining the seafront are now home to restaurants and a few trinket and clothes shops, it still retains its charm. The village itself rests on a piece of rugged headland with mesmeric views out to sea. There has been little development here and the area is peaceful and unspoilt partly because there is no beach. Having said that a short drive to Cala Mondrago- or indeed a quick hop on the mini train to the bay- offers visitors two golden sunny beaches which are extremely popular at the height of the summer season. Many families come here because of the safe waters and snorkelling is popular. A pleasant excursion is to take the glass bottomed cruise to the charming harbour of Cala Figuera, or to take a boat trip along the south east coast of the island.

I like to come to Porto Petro for a stroll and to enjoy a hearty paella or tapas on the waterfront at Ca'n Martina restaurant. The views to the wooded hills which are dotted with white villas are delightful and there are plenty of cafés and restaurants around the harbour to satisfy all tastes. Venturing south from the village you reach Mondrago Natural Park which covers 2000 acres of wetland and forests to the east of the island. It is a walker's paradise and there are some fairly effortless walking trails to be found. One tip, if you're coming by car, aim for the N'Alis car park near Cala Mondrago which offers walking maps of the area. For gifts, it 's worth popping into nearby Felanitx for its Sunday market or Santanyi which holds its market every Wednesday.
