Portixol is a small town near the Mallorcan capital Palma that is particularly popular with locals. In fact, Portixol has become one of the most popular addresses from all over Palma de Mallorca, contributing to the lively lifestyle in the area. Several chic bars, cycle paths and the popular beach club “Assaona” are positioned along the coastal area and the fashionable harbour. It has long been no secret among gourmets that some of the best fish restaurants on Mallorca welcome their guests in Portixol. The surrounding bays and the centre of Portixol are the perfect places to enjoy Mallorca’s Mediterranean flair or to engage in sporting activities. The sandy beach is right on the doorstep. The international airport of Palma de Mallorca is also closer than expected, with a maximum driving time of ten minutes. Many people who enjoy the turbulent city life and yet occasionally seek peace and quiet will find Portixol a place to relax. Particularly fascinating is the sight of the colourful houses that decorate the first sea line of the small village.
The former small fishing village has long since developed into an exclusive trendy district that has increasingly gained in class and style. Today, Portixol is one of the most expensive residential areas in Palma de Mallorca - for good reason! In addition to minimalist cocktail bars and renowned beach clubs, first-class real estate and the stylish Hotel Portixol are the secret stars of this area - a region that has nevertheless retained its idiosyncratic character to this day. We recommend Izizi Nunnak, Cocco, Piadina e Vino, Can Punta or Ola del Mar as further addresses for good restaurants - all directly in front of the sea or the promenade.
LEISURE & SPORT
Portixol / Molinar is one of the most beautiful and popular areas of Palma, both as a holiday destination and for property buyers. The Paseo Maritimo is lined with a wide variety of sunny bars, cafés and restaurants that are full of life all year round and leave nothing to be desired in terms of gastronomy. Beach fans also get their money’s worth, both with Palma’s city beach Portixol, which shines with clean water, and with the almost innumerable smaller beach sections from Molinar to Palma.
The still original small fishing port of Portixol is particularly romantic. Sports enthusiasts, such as cyclists, inline skaters and walkers, particularly appreciate the continuous Paseo Maritimo, which provides easy access to Palma. This zone is completed by its variety of shops, supermarkets and a large and modern sports centre.
Portixol is on the outskirts of Palma, but is actually only 2 km from the cathedral and easy to reach on foot or by bike along the traffic-free promenade. The airport is only about a 5-minute drive away and many people make a quick cafe stop at the Assaona Beach Club on their way to or from the airport. Especially on weekends and holidays, the promenade fills up with numerous walkers, cyclists and inline skaters and it is hard to get a table in the restaurants.
