Holidays to Portinatx offer a softer centre to Ibiza’s hard-core vibe. Bringing you sandy beaches and a rugged backdrop, they’re all about laid-back living, not having it large...
Ibiza’s most northern point, Portinatx couldn’t be further from the high-voltage dance nights and foam parties of the south. It’s the sort of place you go to get away from it all – a laid-back little resort which deals in pine-forested countryside, sea-view restaurants and cosy bars rather than superclubs.
A trio of beaches
Portinatx’s 3 beaches will do it for both families and musical buffs. The waters are shallow and calm, the bars never run out of ice-cream, and the sandy coves round here stood in for the shores of Hawaii in the 1958 movie South Pacific.
Portinatx isn’t a stay-up-all-night kind of place, but there are plenty of bars and restaurants to explore once the sun goes down. The resort has a family-friendly vibe, so kids will be welcome more or less anywhere you go.
The countryside is a big pull in Portinatx, with lots of lovely leisurely coastal trails to tackle. If you’re up for a challenge, pull on your hiking boots and take on the 10-kilometre cliff walk from Portinatx to Punta de Xarraca. It’s one of the trickiest on the island but worth it for the views.
