Portals Nous

A small cosmopolitan village close to the glamorous Puerto Portals hotspot


About Portals Nous

Portals Nous is a small, relaxed town west of Palma. Thanks to its location, just 12km from the capital and only a short walk from the glitzy marina of Puerto Portals, it’s a popular choice with both holidaymakers and residents. British second homeowners are particularly taken with the town, which retains a sense of community even in winter. The main high street is focused along Carretera d’Andratx. Here you’ll find a selection of shops including fashion boutiques, newsagents, hardware stores, a supermarket, an independent book shop and a variety of restaurants. From Portals Nous, you can access two beaches, a small bay called Cala Portals Nous or Cala Bendinat, and the larger, more well-known Platja de S’Oratori, more commonly known as Cala Portals Nous. This bigger beach is connected to the port, where you’ll find a marina full of beautiful yachts and fine dining options.


History and Culture of Portals Nous

Portals Nous dates back to the 1930s, though there is little sign of those early beginnings since there has been plenty of investment in the area over the years. Wealthy second homeowners and permanent residents have refurbished traditional Mallorcan villas or constructed luxury apartments in the surrounding areas. The neighbourhood of Costa d’en Blanes, on the hills overlooking the town, is the setting for some of the most exclusive homes and enjoys stunning views of the southwest coast.


Shopping in Portals Nous

Portals Nous has all the essential shops catering for your every day needs as well as a few delightful independent boutiques. The Universal Bookshop, run by Kay Halley, has a great range of international books, knitting and sewing accessories and a wonderful community feel. Next door, there’s a charming gift shop called eStudio 3 and some small fashion boutiques. If you’re after luxury designer labels, then continue  to nearby Puerto Portals.


Major Attractions in Portals Nous

Rather than museums and historic buildings, Portals Nous is predominantly a residential area with a beach side focus. That said, there are attractions not far away. Golfers will enjoy the proximity of Real Golf de Bendinat and Lindner Golf & Wellness Resort; while Marineland is a popular day out for families.
