Platja Oratori de Portals Nous
Platja Oratori de Portals Nous or Cala Portals Nous is situated at 11 kilometres from Palma, between the eastern breakwater of Puerto Portals and Bendinat. This sandy area which is not too big is characterized by its fine-grained greyish sand and in front of the coast there is Illa d'en Sales, where you are not recommended to anchor because of the sandbanks and rocks toward south and west. The best option for anchoring boats is between the small island and the beach. In this area there is a sandy ground with seaweed and a depth of three metres. On the eastern side of Platja Oratori de Portals Nous there are some rocks which emerge from the water and which you have to avoid. The navigators consider that Puerto Portals is one of the best infrastructures of the Balearic archipelago and Europe, where you can find some of the most beautiful and expensive boats of the Mediterranean basin, some of the best restaurants of the Balearic Islands and some popular night clubs ideal for young people who live here or visit Majorca. The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The private car can be left on a free parking area next to the beach. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located next to the beach. These characteristics explain that the beach is very crowded by local visitors and tourists.
Platja del Port de Pollença
Platja del Port de Pollença or de Levante is situated at six kilometres from Pollença, between Platja de Can Cullerassa and Port de Pollença. Although there is a high development, touristic aswell as residential, it has still the quiet atmosphere it used to have in the past, which explains that this coastal stretch has been an artistic inspiration.
Agatha Christie set her short story Problem in Pollença in this place and the catalan painter Anglada Camarassa lived in the port. This extremely long sandy area which is very narrow at the same time has suffered a regeneration and an artificial expansion with the introduction of coarse-grained sand. Some years ago there was no beach and no sand. The creation has been possible thanks to the breakwater that was built. At a few metres from the coastal stretch of the bay of Pollença there are some pine trees.
The marine and underwater conditions in this bay are not the best ones for anchoring boats, because there is a maximum depth of two metres at a small distance from the coast on a sandy ground, and the strong wind blows from the east- southeast-south. Nevertheless during the summer there are lots of sailing boats anchoring in this area.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The private car can be left on a free parking area. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located at a few metres from this beach.
These characteristics explain that the beach is very crowded by local visitors and tourists.
