A small town on the south west coast of Mallorca, Portals Nous is a short drive from Palma Airport. There are a number of tennis clubs and one of the top golf clubs in Spain, Bendinat Golf Course, is close by.
Whilst the white sand beaches are small, they’re surrounded by playgrounds, tapas bars, and cafés.
In the Town
One of the most striking features of Portals Nous is the stunning marina at Puerto Portals. Filled with superyachts, it’s a popular spot with the rich and famous but comes with surprisingly low prices.
Wander down to the beach and relax on the brilliant white sand before taking a swim in the clear water. There are also some spectacular views over the ocean from the cliffs. Additionally, there is a fantastic range of restaurants and bars here, with Roxy’s considered one of the best on the island.
A day trip to Palma is a must during your stay in Portals Nous as it is only a short drive away. The change of scenery brings with it a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Hit the shops and enjoy a coffee in one of the trendy cafés. Allow some time to enjoy the historic architecture, such as the fantastic Cathedral of Santa Maria.
For a family day out, head to Palma Aquarium, home to around 700 species including sharks and rays. Alternatively, make your way to Marineland, a marine park which hosts spectacular dolphin shows.
Afterwards make your way to Pirates Adventure. This dinner entertainment show is exciting and packed with fun for all the family.
For a change of pace, you can visit Bellver Castle. This spectacular gothic fort sits high up against the surrounding landscape and offers fantastic views from the top.
