Nowadays it is difficult to define the exact point where Portixol becomes Molinar. Some say before the Rambla. Others see the point just before the newly renovated port of Molinar.
El Molinar owes its name to the numerous windmills that are so typical of Mallorca. Our colleague has written a good article about the history of this fashionable area.
Molinar is perhaps even more uninspired and a bit more "normal" than Portixol. The small street that runs between the houses on the seafront and the sea is quieter than in Portixol with its one-way system. And the parking strip is not there. This means there is less traffic and more peace and quiet than in Portixol. However, the range of restaurants and bars is also somewhat smaller and also somewhat simpler.
All of Palma strolls between Portixol and Molinar at the weekend. The nearest town is Ciudad Jardín. There is a large sandy beach and a large number of restaurants. As a residential area, it is less popular compared to Portixol and Molinar because, on the one hand, the planes are much more audible. On the other hand, the distance to Palma is simply greater.
Sport is also possible...
The seafront promenade invites you to take a pleasant stroll, while the coastal cycle path connects the port of Palma de Mallorca with El Arenal over a distance of 20 kilometres. The entire stretch of coast is frequented by sportsmen and connoisseurs, countless cafés and restaurants invite you to linger, or buy a fishing rod and see what you can catch?
Old town on foot
The old town of Palma is a 20-30 minute walk away, past the beautiful cathedral. Just around the corner you will find supermarkets, small grocery shops, a well-known local butcher, bicycle rental, gyms and everything your heart desires. A car is more of a hindrance in Portixol and parking spaces are scarce in summer.

Please also note our new projects that we are developing for sale. elMar, a brilliant large townhouse in Molinar in the first sea line, is particularly exciting in my opinion.
