Porto Colom Felanitx - A small, pleasant resort in the Felanitx district, on the south-eastern coast of Mallorca, in the Spanish Balearic Islands, Porto Colom is largely unspoilt and well worth a visit if you are in the area. The old part of town still has charming old fishermen's houses and the ancient church of Sant Jaume I, the harbour is also attractive and a pleasant place to while away a hour or two.
