Where is Puerto Portals and how to get there?

Puerto Portals is located on the southwest coast of Mallorca and belongs to the town of Portals Nous in the municipality of Calvià. The luxurious port is only 10 kilometers away from Palma’s city center. From Palma de Mallorca Airport you can reach Puerto Portals in about 20 minutes by car. The best place to park is one of the paid parking lots around the harbor (quite expensive, but less stressful). If you are not traveling by rental car, you can also easily reach Puerto Portals by public transport or by cab.

Gastronomy in Puerto Portals

Puerto Portals is known for its high-end gastronomic offer – prices are in line with the ambience. However, please don’t let that stop you! You can eat well while enjoying the view of the yachts glittering in the sunlight at the popular restaurants Flanigan, Wellies or Ritzi.

I especially like Cappuccino. Actually, I avoid coffee house chains, but the Cappuccino branches, which can be found several times in Palma and the rest of the island, are all so individual that a coffee or a drink here is always worthwhile! The Puerto Portals branch is centrally located in the middle of the promenade and from here you have a good view of all the action.

Events in Puerto Portals

It’s best to keep an eye out for events taking place in Puerto Portals: Then a visit is particularly worthwhile. One of the highlights of the year is the“Puerto Portals Sailing Week“, a regatta where sailors from all over the world gather in Puerto Portals. But the annual Christmas market, which transforms the marina into a magical winter wonderland, is also a must-see.

I can especially recommend the Sunset Market, which takes place in the summer months. Then the harbor promenade is transformed into an elegant hippie market with many stalls of small handmade labels, food trucks with delicious snacks and chilling live music.

Beaches near Portals Nous

Just a short walk from the marina, you’ll find Platja de Portals Nous, an idyllic beach with fine, golden sand and calm, crystal-clear waters. The small bay is somewhat hidden at the end of the harbor promenade and is really very pretty. You will also find some small beach bars for a drink or the hunger in between. Of particular note is Tabgha, a newly opened chiringuito with a social approach.

On the other side is the Platja de Punta Portals, which is less crowded, but in my opinion also a little less beautiful.
