Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Because of its natural location, Playa Portals Vells attracts visitors from the nearby holiday resorts who are looking for an alternative to the town beaches and would like to sample Majorca's natural island beauty. This little bay is well equipped, with sun loungers and a chiringuito, and is particularly suitable for families. But it has to be said that in the summer months it tends to be overcrowded. There are three other sandy bays to explore quite close by; these are even smaller and have a more intimate setting.

Playa Portals Vells - Natural, unspoiled bay with good snorkelling

At the shore end of this little bay a narrow strip of soft sand holds its own between the crystal clear sea water and the forest, which stretches almost all the way down to the shoreline here. Playa Portals Vells is one of four adjacent beaches to be found within a few metres of each other along an arm of the sea which branches as it stretches inland.

Portals Vells itself, which is situated in the south-west of Majorca, consists of just a handful of buildings and is surrounded by forest to a large extent. It is about 20 kilometres from Palma, the capital of the island. From here you can reach the large tourist centres of Santa Ponsa and Magaluf by car in around quarter of an hour. You can choose between two parking areas, both close to the beach.

In the summer months people come in their droves to this little beach. At that time of year numerous boats, including excursion boats, anchor in the bay, bringing even more visitors with them. You can rent sun loungers and umbrellas here, or just make yourself comfortable on your own towel. There is a large chiringuito with fish dishes and other dishes typical of the region on the menu.

By traversing the flat rocks edging the sandy bay you can reach the smaller bays nearby, where there are several caves to be explored. When snorkelling underwater you may stumble upon one or more of several small mussel reefs.
