Portixol is an old fishing harbour which has become one of the most trendy and sought after areas around Palma. The name itself means ”port and sun” in the Mallorquin language. Here you will find some superb fish restaurants, great tapas places, and modern style cafés one after the other.
Many of these places are along the water front and have spectacular views over the small beach and the Club Nautic in Portixol. There is always plenty of activity happening; you will see people practising SUP or enjoying an early morning canoe trip in the calm waters. On the board walk you will see people fishing, running, riding a bike, skateboarding or rollerblading. It is also perfect for a long walk in the sunshine or to enjoy a coffee and people watch at one of the many cafés.
Other than restaurants and cafes, Portixol has the conveniences of a great gym, pharmacy and food stores. In Portixol you can live by the sea with just a 30 minute walk to Palma. There are also great bus connections into the centre.
