Portinatx is a remote part of Ibiza, making it difficult to get to other parts of the island. There is a bus service to Ibiza Town (bus number 20 1) and Santa Eulària des Riu (bus number 21 2), however they only run every few hours. There is also a boat service to Es Canar and Port de Sant Miguel, but again the service is infrequent.
Nonetheless, Portinatx has been praised for its picturesque scenery and many believe it to be the most beautiful resort on the island. Landmarks include the Punta Moscarter Lighthouse. Like most of Ibiza, the surrounding countryside is heavily forested, as opposed to the more bare neighboring islands of Mallorca and Menorca. The town is shadowed over by sa Descoberta, a large wooded hill rising up to roughly 250 metres above sea level.
Portinatx is a small family resort rather than a party place with warm seas off of its small beaches that remain shallow for some distance, and with several shops, bars and places to eat of various national cuisines and price brackets. It has two cash points.
