Puerto Portals is widely known as the most glamorous marina on the island. It has become an attractive destination for the rich and famous to moor their yachts and now caters for more than 600 yachts up to 60 metres in length. Unlike many other ports in Mallorca, there is a year-round buzz here. It’s the place to visit for designer shopping, people watching and first-class restaurants and bars.
Located in the south-west of the island, just a 10-minute drive from Palma, Puerto Portals is connected to the more modest town of Portal Nous. There's a real cosmopolitan feel to the place, think of something between Monte Carlo and Puerto Banus and you're nearly there.
Puerto Portals is not actually that big - you could walk from one end to the other in five minutes - but the point of being here is to sit and enjoy the world as it goes by. There are designer boutiques selling jewellery, watches, swimwear, clothing, accessories and gifts. In between, you'll also find swanky estate agents and yacht charter and brokerages. A wide range of portside restaurants offer a good selection of cuisine. You can come here for breakfast, lunch and dinner and admire luxury yachts, Ferraris and Porsches (and of course, their owners!) parading up and down the front. It’s more than likely you will also spot a familiar face amongst the crowds as it has become quite the celebrity hotspot. The likes of Paris Hilton, Brad Pitt, Jamie and Louise Redknapp or Jenson Button have all been spotted in the port. A lovely beach adjoins the port too, so you can easily make a day of it.
