Portinatx is one of the best-kept secrets in Ibiza. This small, family-friendly resort is much quieter than the larger resorts at San Antonio and Ibiza Town, and as a result it is much easier to get away from the crowds while on a holiday to Portinatx.
Discover Portinatx Holidays
There are three main beaches at Portinatx. The first one you’ll come to is at S'Arenal Gros, located right in the centre of the bay. This is Portinatx’s main spot for swimming and sunbathing, and also hosts a wide variety of water sports. You’ll find banana boats, jet skis and scuba gear available to hire in this area. If you’re after a little more peace and quiet however, you might prefer to head across to S'Arenal Petit. This is a secluded cove, set apart from the main beach by a rocky headland. It’s a great place to go for a little privacy, and the shallow waters make it a safe spot for young children. The third beach at Portinatx is known as Playa Porto, and is perhaps the most beautiful of the three. Located in small cove just off the main road, the golden sands at Playa Porto are nestled in a landscape of pine-clad hills.
You’ll be able to enjoy some fine cuisine during your holiday to Portinatx. The many restaurants here serve a good range of international and local dishes, with a particular emphasis on seafood; Portinatx has a history as a fishing village, and many restaurants proudly serve the catch of the day. Some of the more popular venues include the Cas Mallorqui Restaurant with its fantastic views and Mediterranean cuisine, or the family-friendly Es Puet Blanc Restaurant.
The waters around Portinatx are remarkably clear, and as a result scuba diving is a particularly popular pastime in the area. Diving isn’t the only way to explore beneath the surface, however. While on holiday in Portinatx you’ll have the chance to take a tour in a glass-bottomed boat, a great way to witness some of the bizarre and colourful marine life of the area! Another popular attraction is the large market held in the town every Sunday. Featuring stalls laden with jewellery, leather items, pottery and other local handicrafts, it’s the perfect place to grab an unusual souvenir
