Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Playa Oratorio will captivate you, not only by its idyllic setting, but also by its sophisticated restaurants, which add plenty of charm and atmosphere to the whole bay. Nestling against a backdrop of the rocky hills typical of the Majorcan south-west you'll find a wide beach with light sand and a glorious view over crystal clear water, from which a nearby rocky green island protrudes. Water sports on offer include flyboarding, stand up paddle boarding and an aquarena, and these make the beach ideal for families.

Playa Oratorio - The perfect setting for your family outing

In the small holiday resort of Portals Nous in the south-west of Majorca you will find a gem of a beach - Playa Oratorio. Nestling amongst gently rolling hills, the beach is bordered on one side by the jetty and on the other by a steep, partially overgrown rock face. One section of the beach has been developed, at a slightly higher level, with multi-storey hotels. However, these are not particularly noticeable to bathers, so they have little negative effect on the appearance of the beach. Above the rocks there is a platform from which you can enjoy a fantastic view out over the neighbouring bays. About 300 metres from the beach a nameless rocky green island protrudes from the water.

The crystal clear water sparkles in the sun. The sandy white beach is a corner of paradise, as it slopes very gradually down to the sea. This, together with a wide range of water sports activities, such as stand up paddle boarding, flyboarding, a sailing school and pedal boats make Playa Oratorio a very popular destination for Spanish, German and British families alike. Despite this it is never too full, even in peak season. There are lifeguards, but you should still look out for sea urchins and jellyfish. You shouldn't stray outside the swimming area marked off by buoys, as the area beyond these is heavily used for motorised water sports.

Three excellent restaurants give Playa Oratorio a good deal of flair and even add a bit of an exclusive touch. The music from the restaurants echoes across the whole bay and makes for a lively atmosphere. You can choose from a selection of drinks, cocktails, snacks and lots of delicious dishes that are certain to sweeten your day.

Every beach is unique. Apart from how the beach looks and its surroundings it is mainly the people and the amenities here which give the beach its character.

There is nothing going on at this beach and no party in sight for miles.
