Portals Vells beach. | G. ALOMAR

Often referred to as simply ‘Portals Vells’, this three-fingered bay is arguably the most popular spot to drop your anchor in the southwest. A short cruise from Puerto Portals and Port Adriano, it’s boat soup in high season, with tenders shuttling guests to and from a duo of seafront restaurants. With calm water and fine sand, Cala Portals Vells is by far the most popular of the trio, and it’s advisable to arrive early to find a hole for your car, and your towel. Make sure you explore the large man-made caves at the end of the bay where stone was once extracted to build Palma’s cathedral.
