Golf Son Termens

Today, we would like to introduce you the golf course Son Termens that was opened to the public on May, 1998 and is located in a wonderful valley that belongs to Bunyola. Son Termens is situated at 10 kilometres of Palma.

The course offers a beautiful view of Palma from its location at the foothills of the Sierra de Tramuntana – the Tramontana Mountains –, although it is important to highlight that this is one of the places of the Balearic Islands which is more blended into the natural environment.

Son Termens is surrounded by wooded mountains and slopes, without any buildings around with the exception of the club that was built following the Majorcan style.

The 18 holes of the course are distributed all over the mountainous spot. The round, extended along the hillocks and hollows, has a medium difficulty.

Son Termens is a place with a privileged location, a balanced ecosystem and a nice calmness during summer months; just for professionals and amateurs to enjoy training their strokes. Its restaurant is also an attractive place thanks to the views, but it is known not only among the golfers, but also for its good cooking. In general terms, this golf course will offer a warm welcome to the visitors.

Puerto Portals, the VIP Port

Puerto Portals was born in 1932 on the table of an artist. The difference it has with natural ports is that it is not used for the loading and unloading of merchandise and therefore for that reason not considered a doorway to other continents, it is rather a gateway to another world: the world of the rich and beautiful, of splendor and pomp.

The yachts that lie at anchor here have above all one thing in common, they are expensive jewels that state that here in this famous place one can step onto the ladder of high society.

You do not have to be the King to eat in the port, though its possible to see one! King Juan Carlos and his family often visit here during the summer just like Claudia Schiffer or Antonio Banderas.

This place is very exclusive just like its visitors and ships berths are highly coveted. It’s quite likely that your boat neighbour could be famous…

“That is the neighbourly back door to Tristan. Many people were afraid of entering the restaurant as they thought they would not know how to comport themselves, so we built the bistro here on the corner where we could cook at another level with equally fresh products in a relaxed atmosphere where the guests can accustom themselves to the tastes and atmosphere of the place”

After drinking in the exquisiteness of the port you start to feel hot under the sun its also possible to take a swim in Portals.  The sandy beach of the same name is only two steps away. Whoever gets the perspiration when listing and connecting consuming of the exquisiteness, can take a bath also in postage of portal. The sandy beach is distant for only one cat-jump.  La Dolçe Vita is really here.

On the docks and on the boats things are not so casual. Here everybody that can, proudly show that they are at their leisure. Though the builders of the harbour work hard the place still seems to have the appearance of a Disney movie set, perfection wherever you look.

In a place of High Society there is no lack of quality boutiques.  Exclusive shopping is available at numerous stores.  The garments are designer wear and nothing is factory made.

While people prepare for the nightlife there is silence over the Port and it is now, with the falling dusk that Puerto  Portals shows its most beautiful face.
