Destination guide

Portals Nous – a Mallorcan medley

Portals Nous is the hilly top of the chic marina called Puerto Portals. Awash with stylish villas and Portals Nous holiday rentals with pools and gardens, it's a favourite base for travellers looking to fuse relaxation and Balearic pizzazz into one trip. The former comes courtesy of the curvaceous beachfront that squiggles beneath the cliffs right next to the harbour. The latter comes in the harbour itself, where see-and-be-seen cocktail bars mingle with edgy Mediterranean bistros. A mix of other draws – from Marineland Mallorca to the rides of Katmandu Park – make it suitable for families, too.

Things to do

Days away from the pool in Portals Nous

Somersaulting bottlenoses and barrel-rolling sea lions mingle with tanks of Mediterranean corals and blacktip sharks from the Indo-Pacific at the family-ready Marineland Mallorca. Shows take place daily in the main travel season and the attraction is just a short drive from the door of most Portals Nous holiday rentals. A little further around the bay is Katmandu Park. Pick from the 2 unique miniature golf courses there, see magic houses come to life and experience the Wild West, as it is recreated by the entertaining Desperados – it's an all-in-one day out for the whole troop.


Dolphin pods and shimmering yachts in Portals Nous

Whether it's cruising on a private 40-footer with the sun in your face or spotting dolphins in the Balearic Sea on an organised marine safari, you're bound to love all the opportunities that come with the proximity of Portals Nous holiday rentals and the marina at Puerto Portals. Of course, a tamer version of the waters comes with a jaunt to pretty Portals Nous Beach, and there are plenty of little seaside shops and bars to get stuck in to, if you prefer to keep the sand and sea even further at bay.


Waiting for what May brings in Portals Nous

Portals Nous, and the adjoining marina of Puerto Portals, tend to go into hibernation for the winter months. That's when the jet-setters pull their yachts from the water and the sands of the local beach go quiet – it's often just a tad too cold to swim. That said, the main season starts nice and early this far south in Spain. Spring kicks things off, with May seeing mercury levels rising. Then comes the summer, with temperatures regularly over 30 degrees and more sun than you can shake a designer swimsuit at.

Natural features

Star-studded marinas to wild peaks in Portals Nous

Sitting atop the marinas of the Calvia region, some 10 miles away from the heart of Palma de Mallorca, Portals Nous has one of the best locations for seeking out that typically Balearic medley of sun, sand and sea – most villas will be just a stroll from the beach. The boats in the marina offer trips out to see dolphins in the surrounding Med, while jaunts northwards open up the more rustic, untrodden Serra de Tramuntana. That's a natural UNESCO site, clad in blankets of pine trees and spiked with soaring limestone mountain peaks that look almost like human sculptures.
