Porto Colom is a small town on Mallorca's east coast, belonging to the municipality of Felanitx, which is one of the most attractive on this coast. It is a traditional fishing village where the main beach of Cala Marsal is located. Porto Colom - Cala Marsal has all the facilities of a tourist resort with a large presence of hotels, restaurants, shops, beaches ... and offers many things to do and places to visit, together with an interesting number of excursions to different tourist attractions.
The town is located around a large bay, in which the lighthouse and the anchored boats add a beauty to the nature of the place. We find a long pier where leisure boats mix with local fishing boats, and that brings us to our first recommendation for those on holiday: a boat trip from Porto Colom to see the beauty of the Mallorcan coast and the conservation of one of the prettiest harbour towns.
Other interesting things to visit in Porto Colom are the lighthouse, the church, the area of La Riueto and the old town. Everything is close by and easy to get to. There are nice bars and cafes around the town which can make a convenient pause when exploring the sights.
Every Tuesday and Saturday is market day, which is held in the Plaza del Comerç.
