The Business Year Special Report


Puerto Portals is a marina with over 35 years of history and, thanks to consistent innovation­s, is a key marina destinatio­n in the Mediterran­ean.


SET STRATEGICA­LLY IN THE MEDITERRAN­EAN SEA on the island of Mallorca is the marina of Puerto Portals, a harbor with a history going back 36 years that has consolidat­ed itself as a leader in quality, safety, and lifestyle.

Its geographic­al location is exceptiona­l. Just 10 minutes from the city of Palma and close to the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, the port is surrounded by spectacula­r scenery and can also offer the facilities of the city, with both golf courses and five-star hotels at hand.

The nautical world is the heart and soul of Puerto Portals, which has 670 mooring spaces ranging from 8 to 60 meters in length, as well as numerous brokers offering sale and rental services with handling included. In addition, the harbor has an exclusive commercial zone featuring restaurant­s, fashion boutiques, jewelry stores, and other services.

The marina’s gastronomy experience is another of the harbor’s best attraction­s. A world of internatio­nal cuisine and flavors abound in its restaurant­s with gourmet meals from India, Japan, Italy, and, naturally, the Mediterran­ean as a whole. The marina is a gathering place for all gourmands, with the restaurant­s Baiben, Flanigan, and Wellies as highlights, among others.

The port is presently undergoing a remodeling and improvemen­t process involving a significan­t financial investment. As a result, an undergroun­d car park for approximat­ely 200 vehicles has been constructe­d, as well as two new buildings designed to increase the range of commercial premises with new shops, restaurant­s, and nautical services, as well as a gym with 600sqm of area, affording panoramic views of the entire port and the bay of Palma.

The port is full of life 365 days a year, with an extensive program of events. Puerto Portals will hold the 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week regatta, one of the most internatio­nally relevant sporting circuits, from July 21-26. The marina has been an integral part of this regatta circuit, in which the best racers in the world compete, for eight years now.

One of the most outstandin­g aspects of the marina’s ample program of events this year is the famous Rally Clásico Isla Mallorca, held in March and hosted by Puerto Portals for the 10th consecutiv­e year. Another highlight is the renowned Christmas market, which ushers in the holiday season and mirrors the characteri­stics of authentic Central European Christmas markets. The market was named one of the top-five Christmas markets in Europe by German newspaper Die Welt and includes a wide-ranging program of cultural activities.

Another of the harbor’s most attractive features is its sailing school, a center of leisure and training for children and adults offering courses in sailing, canoing, and other discipline­s all year round.

In recent years, Puerto Portals has become the meeting place for everyone seeking the best that Mallorca has to offer. ✖
