The many coves were formerly fishing villages, but today are locations for hotels and apartments.

Hop on Hop off ferries stop in many of the coves, allowing visitors pick and choose where to spend their afternoons without bothering about hiring a car.

Porto Colom Majorca Island

Porto Colom still retains the charm of a small fishing village - though mass tourism is beginning to creep into the surrounds.

The harbour is well protected, affording a safe berth for numerous small craft and the local fishermen.

The local fishermen moor their small craft alongside the pier and can be often seen mending their nets or unloading their catch of fish, crab or lobster.

Along the waterfront there are some restaurants which serve freshly caught fish.

The small fishermen style houses in the older part of the town make this an attractive place to spend some time.
