Luxury Porto Petro Holidays

Live like a local

Porto Petro

On the outskirts of holiday hotspot Cala d’Or is Porto Petro, an easy-going seaside village that lets you live like a local. This undiscovered gem is a glimpse into traditional Majorca, with a lovely natural harbour filled with fishing boats and a handful of yachts.

There’s a picturesque cove, but no beach to call its own; if you’re after a dose of the sandy stuff there are several to choose from nearby – try S’Amarador or Cala Mondrago for the best swimming and sunbathing. Porto Petro’s pick of restaurants and bars is clustered around the waterfront, with predictably popular seafood menus and a few low-key bars for relaxing with a cold beer.

Something of a star for nature lovers, Porto Petro is wrapped in wooded hills and olive groves threaded with hiking paths, while the Mondrago National Park is south of the resort – 2,000 acres of wetlands, forest and walking trails.

I love a quieter side to Majorca, so this quaint fishing village is my favourite place. I love spending the day on one of the secluded beaches nearby, before going for a drink at one of the bars around the lovely harbour.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Majorca is around 2 hours 15 minutes.

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Palma airport to Porto Perto is approximately 1 hour.

When to go

Majorca starts warming up for summer around April, when the mercury climbs into the 20s and doesn’t stop until around July, which can top 30°C. You’re looking at around 11 hours of sunshine a day in midsummer, with bath-like sea temperatures. Things won’t cool off until October, which still hovers in the low to mid 20s. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.

Tipping

Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
