GATEWAY TO LUXURY
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. ✖
