If you are planning your holiday in Porto Colom, Mallorca, the following information may help by giving you an overview on the resort.
Porto Colom is a fishing village and once the port for Felanitx. It was named in honour of Christopher Columbus who is said [without much evidence] to have been born here. Until the late 19th century, Porto Colom was busy supplying wine to France; but when the vines were killed by a disease, its role as a port diminished and it has only recently discovered a new life as a tourist resort.
Popular with Mallorcan and Spanish visitors and set inside a deep natural harbour, it still has the feel of a small fishing port with boats around the quay and pastel-coloured houses lining the waterfront, each with its own landing stage. Cala Marcal [2km south] has a wide sandy beach leading to a narrow rocky cove.
