Cala Portals Vells

Aug. 22, 2019

 

Majorca has more than 80 anchorages (calas) and harbours on a coastline of 200 nm - ideal for sailing! One of them is the three-finger bay Cala de Portals Vells, for us one of the best bays to anchor in Majorca, because it offers everything you could wish for when sailing on the Balearic island. The three small picturesque sandy beaches are located in Calvia, in the southwest of Majorca, just a few kilometres south of Magaluf. They are protected by nature and enchant with their scenic setting of rugged rockfalls, washed-out sandstone formations and pine forests.

The first beach to the south is Sa Caleta, which is also the largest of the three consecutive beaches. A special attraction is the artificial quarry cave over Sa Caleta, which hides a legendary place of worship. Nearby is a charming restaurant with good food and a wonderful view.
 

This beach also offers various water sports such as water skiing, jet skiing, windsurfing and parasailing. There is also excellent snorkeling, the water is crystal clear and the underwater world is varied.
 

Second and smallest beach is the Platja del Mago. The 20 m long sandy beach was already in 1967 the backdrop for the film "El Mago" (The Magician) with 3 world famous actors (Anthony Quinn, Michael Caine, Candice Bergen). There is also a nice little restaurant here that invites you to have lunch.  The Platja de Mago is very popular among nudists.
 

If one follows the path further south via a small staircase, one reaches the small beach Platja del Rei. The adjacent restaurant is especially popular among yacht owners.

The marine and underwater conditions are excellent for anchoring. Attention: Since summer 2018 anchoring on Poseidon grass is forbidden by law.
