Nestled on the southwest tip of Mallorca is the stunning cove beach of Portals Vells. If you want to experience Mallorca like a local then a holiday here will not disappoint! This remote beach can be accessed via the coastal road heading south from nearby Portals Nous, or east from Santa Ponsa and Port Adriano. Backed by a small village amongst the beautiful pine forests, Portals Vells beach is the ultimate place to unwind. Whether its lazing in the sun and gazing out to the many yachts and boats bobbing along the stunning clear water, or partaking in the diving and snorkelling opportunities on offer, the secluded, calm ambience here feels like pure paradise. Heading out to the buzz of nearby resorts is easy though, and you're spoiled for choice all the way along the coastline. Head to the glitzy Puerto Portals marina in nearby Portals Nous for an upmarket and vibrant vibe, or head west to Santa Ponsa for plenty of family-friendly options and a bigger, more commercialised sandy beach. If shopping is your thing, you're only 30 minutes from the island's capital Palma with its abundance of boutique shops and historic buildings.
