Porto Colom is a town on Mallorca┤s east coast, within the municipality of Felanitx. The arrival of tourism in the 1960s brought large-scale development, with hotels and apartments being built. However, the town hasn┤t reached the heights of saturation seen at other resorts on Mallorca. The beauty of the surroundings, with beaches that have calm waters due to the protection afforded by the port, and a wide selection of hotels and restaurants, make Porto Colom the perfect spot for family holidays.
Over the years the port┤s commercial activities have disappeared, and fishing now has a token presence. However, the sailing club of Club NÓutic de Porto Colom is one of the most important and best-equipped on Mallorca, with many pleasure craft.

Services: restaurants; sun loungers, pedal boats and parasols for hire.
