Porto Colom is a picturesque resort and was originally a small fishing village. The fishing industry remains an integral part of the town. There is no beach in the town, but its promenade offers lovely views across the bay, as well as a host of fine restaurants offering a varety of dishes, and at a variety of prices. The main beach is at Cala Marsal, which is a bit of slog by foot uphill from Porto Colom, but it is nice part of the town with its own bars and restaurants. There is a small beach to the west of the town at s'Arenal and is very popular with locals. Porto Colom is a natural harbour and residents claim it to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus ... he must have been the only person born in a dozen different places!

Like most Mallorcan resorts, the season runs from May to October and while the hotels are closed in winter, the restaurants remain open and it is a popular location for day trippers.
