What: The beach in Portals Nous, with its correct name Platja de s´Oratori, is well hidden from the main road. In able to find it you need to know where and how to go. The beach is approximately 200 meters wide, where half is covered with sand and the other half in stones and sand. There is space for both towels, rental sunbeds with umbrellas as well as water activities such as pedalo and stand up paddling.
Where: This beach is located approximately 11 kilometers southwest of Palma, in Portals. The easiest way to go there is by car, but even better with vespa. If you decide to take the bus, you need to take the red/yellow (TIB) bus from the central station, Placa España, since Portals is located in Calvia municipality and not Palma municipality. You need to walk a bit from the bus station down towards the harbor and further to the beach. You can also walk thru the cemetery from above the beach, but it´s a bit more tricky, but worth the magnificent view. Find it on a map here.
Fun to know: Next to the beach, you will find the super luxurious harbor, Puerto Portals, with boats/yachts worth millions of euros. You will find many restaurants, cafées and exclusive boutiques. It´s perfectly fine to bring small children, since there is an area in the center without cars.
We recommend: Bring your snorkeling gear so you can swim to the small island not far from the beach. At the far end of the beach, you will find Roxy Beach club, which is a very relaxed beach club with good food and drinks. On the middle of the beach there is a small kiosk with a little bit of everything. Just a few steps from the beach, you will also find restaurant Lila. This place has an amazing view.
