Relax and unwind in Porto Pietro
Holidays to Porto Pietro will take you to the stunning south east coast of Majorca. Originally a fishing village it is now a small resort just south of the more well known Cala D'Or. Though far removed from the mass tourism it is gaining popularity because of its lovely marina, gorgeous beaches, secluded coves and its proximity to the Mondrago Natural Park. The nearest town of Santanyi, a typically laid back Mallorcan village, is six kilometres away and a forty minute drive will take you to the capital city of Palma. Hotels in Porto Pietro are located near the beaches and there are some hotels just outside the resort towards Mondrago around Cala Barca.

Things to do in Porto Pietro
This small fishing village is the ideal spot for relaxation and one of Majorca’s best kept secrets. Surrounded by beautiful scenery instead of hordes of tourists, Porto Pietro is a haven of glorious sunshine, whitewashed beaches and picturesque harbours. Despite being a secluded destination, there are plenty of things to do in Porto Pietro – whether you’re looking for a romantic break away or a family adventure. Of course, one of Porto Pietro’s attractions is its serene beaches. Marked by a large pine tree, Calo des Homos Morts is the busiest beach while Calo de sa Torre boasts some delightful rocky coves and a set of small steps to reach the water.
Wine and Dine
As the home to a thriving fishing port, it comes as no surprise that Porto Pietro’s harbour is abundant with seafood restaurants. From freshly caught fish to mussels and clams, these eateries will open you up to their unique take on traditional Spanish fish dishes. Check out La Caracola on the harbour front for understated charm and Mallorcan fare, while nearby Es Bergant serves up local delicacies – including fried squid – in a beautiful setting.
Action and Adventure
While quiet times are guaranteed in this sleepy village, there are still plenty of things to do in Porto Pietro for those in search of holiday action. Diving and fishing are popular activities to be found on these shores, while jumping on the mini-train to nearby Cala Mondrago will provide you with more opportunities. Here, not only will you find a vast nature park to explore, but a wealth of stunning landscape ideal for hiking or biking – while down on the beachfront, you’ll be able to take part in a range of exciting water sports.
There are some great family-friendly Porto Pietro attractions if you can bear to tear yourself away from the beach. As a distinctly family-orientated resort, there are plenty of designated kids’ clubs in many of the hotels as well as the obligatory beaches for children to play in. For more fun in the sunshine, take the short journey to the vibrant city of Palma. Here, you’ll find some great places to keep kids quiet and teenagers from rolling their eyes – from the thrill-seeking rides of the Aqualand waterpark to meeting friendly dolphins at Marineland.
Porto Pietro beach holidays
The resort has two small intimate beaches Calo des Homos Morts and Calo de sa Torre. Relax on the gleaming white sand or cool off in the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Why not learn to scuba dive on your holiday to Porto Pietro. Snorkeling is a popular pursuit for a more laid back way to check out the underwater world in the pristine waters around the resort. There are two larger beaches in Cala Mondrago five minutes away by car or by mini land train from the centre of the village.
Explore Porto Pietro
The Cala Mondrago nature park just is a short distance from the resort by car or the Porto Pietro mini land train. It is a beautiful and intriguing place to explore in the cool of the evening in summer or at any time of the day in spring and autumn. Why not take a boat trip along the stunning south east coast of Majorca. A glass bottom boat cruises to the idyllic harbour of Cala Figuera. If you have a car why not drive further up the east coast and enjoy the changing landscape or stop off a one of the many tranquil coves along the road. There are many excellent small restaurants dotted around the harbour serving fresh locally caught fish and other Mallorcan specialities. The nightlife in the resort is mainly hotel based or spent relaxing over a meal and drinks at the pretty harbour side restaurants watching the yachts and fishing boats drifting back into the marina. The shops in the town will provide everything you need during your stay but visitors will enjoy a trip to the Wednesday or Saturday markets in the nearby town of Santanyi. A holiday to Majorca would not be complete without a visit to the capital city of Palma. With history and culture in every street, square and corner of the old quarter. Designer shops and chic boutiques as well as trendy tapas bars, excellent restaurants and pavement cafes line its avenues and the city entices visitors to return for a longer visit.
