Portixol in Palma, the joy of living by the sea


Sunrise accompanied by the whisper of the sea, enjoying a lovely walk along the shore of the beach or having a great tasting appetiser on one of Portixol’s restaurant terraces; these are just some of the things you can do if you live in Portixol, Mallorca.

The old fishermen’s quarter in Portixol is currently one of the most desirable places in Mallorca to live, and in the last few years it has become truly charming and one of the most popular areas in the city of Palma.

Thanks to its perfect location by the sea and how close it is to the centre of the city, many people are looking for their flat in Portixol there to live in, whether year round or as a second residence in the summer season.

This truly special area is only a few kilometres from the Palma Cathedral, which you can get to on foot or by bike. However, the walk or ride is not the only thing that makes it a special place; its buildings, culture and ambiance make Portixol one of the city’s representative quarters.

Among the various buildings on the edge of the sea, you can have a look at the old fishermen’s houses as well as other buildings in a contemporary style that strike a balance between old and new, with reformed architecture that draws you into a truly Mediterranean environment.

However, if there’s something we need to point out about the Portixol area, it’s the great food it offers, with a large variety of restaurants and cocktail bars where you can enjoy the great Palma atmosphere. There’s nothing like leaving home on a sunny day in Portixol and savouring genuine Mediterranean flavours in restaurants like the Club Náutico de Portixol, Ola del Mar and Sa Roqueta. You can also enjoy the traditional and delicious llonguets in Es Vaixell and top the day off with a drink in Cocca Portixol or Nassau Beach Club.
