Cala Portals - Portals Vells - Mallorca
A very beautiful bay and extremely popular all year round. There is a small marina here, but only for boats up to about 12 metres and it is usually full. There is good holding over sand. It is a very sheltered except from an easterly wind and the inevitable wake from the other boats. With an easterly swell it can be very rough and taking a line ashore maybe necessary.   

There are three main beaches here, the middle one is Mallorca's official nudist beach El Mago and the largest has a great restaurant. 

Sa Caleta Beach
Serves excellent fish and seafood and has Bitbuger on tap, gets very busy in the summer so avoid the weekends.

Historical and Cultural Information
There are man made caves with lots of stories as to how they came about, scenes from the film "The Guns of Navarone" were filmed there.
