The spectacular Portals Vells Beach – Mallorca, or “Sa Caleta” is a natural environment of incredible beauty and scenic interest.
This natural wonder is nine kilometres from the Magaluf area. It is a sea inlet, between the points of “Xisclet” and “s’Estaca,” which is divided into several “veins” that end in this sandy area in which there are three beaches, “Portals Vells,” “Playa del Mago” and “Playa del Rey.”
A leafy pine forest surrounds this beautiful beach which is created between caves, cliffs & sea inlets. The woodland stretches between “Cap de Cala Figuera” and “Refaubetx,” which together with “Islote de El Toro,” form part of the catalogue of Natural Areas of Special Interest approved by the Parliament of the Balearic Islands and the European Union’s Special Protection Areas for Birds.
