Portals Vells beach
According to legend, in the fifteenth century some Genoese sailors were caught in a wild storm. Chance led them to Portals Vells, and they entered into the cove to seek shelter. As a sign of their gratitude they left a statue of the Virgin Mary in one of the caves that had been excavated by the quarry workers to extract stone. During the same century the statue was moved from the Mare de Déu de Portals to a chapel in Calvià Vila and, again according to legend, every time the virgin was placed in a spot it would somehow mysteriously return to the cave where it had been left by the sailors.
The beach at Palmanova has been awarded the Q for Quality in recognition of the services which it offers tourists. It is the only beach on the Balearic coast which has received said distinction.
