History of Puerto Portals
The harbour belonging to Portals Nous is not a historically grown coastal village. The construction planning for the harbour began in the early 1980s. At first, there were great doubts about the success of this harbour project. Critics complained about the long and remote distance to the island's capital Palma de Mallorca.
Despite all the sceptics, there were enough investors who believed in the project and raised the necessary funds. In 1986, the Puerto Portal marina was opened. The intended economic success was uncertain at the time, but over the decades the marina on Mallorca's southwest coast has developed into an attractive hotspot.
In 2016, the luxury port of Puerto Portals celebrated its 30th anniversary. Present were the founding Graf family. Today, the daughter is the managing director of the renowned marina. Many celebrities from the entertainment world, local politics and business also made appearances.
