Port Adriano’s marina designed by Philippe Starck. This new marina has been designed with mega-yachts in mind. Boats from 20m to 60m long moor alongside this most modern magnificent development that is home to various high class bars, restaurants and designer shops. Only 30 minutes from Palma, it’s a must see! www.portadriano.com
Prince Rainier and Princess Grace honeymooned here, Michael Douglas courted Catherine Zeta-Jones on the island. For holidays and second homes, it’s a celebrity favourite. Mallorca’s glamour, lifestyle, natural beauty and culture appeal to Hollywood’s elite, like Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, and Jennifer Aniston. The growing list of high-profile stars coming here includes Goldie Hawn, Eva Longoria, Sting, Joan Collins, Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffiths. Many of the glamorous visitors opt for privacy, but you might spot a star soaking up the sun on the fine white sands of Es Trenc.
The best place to spot a star’s holiday home (afloat!) is the luxury marina Puerto Portals, where Paris Hilton goes to party and big names like Jim Carrey, Jenson Button and Bill Gates moor their gin-palaces alongside trendy VIP bars, prestigious restaurants and designer shops. Rod Stewart rocks up on his yacht here and designer Valentino once hosted Gwyneth Paltrow on his yacht ‘The Big Blue’. The chic Moorish-style Karma bar has been graced by Brad Pitt, and a host of famous regulars. Michelin-starred restaurant Tristán and luxurious St. Regis Mardavall hotel, favoured by The Rolling Stones and Jim Kerr from Simple Minds, are hotspots, while Wellies is the place to be seen sipping a cappuccino next to the King of Spain. Marivent Palace, the royal summer residence overlooking the bay of Palma, is the scene of many society parties. King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sophia welcomed US First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughter Sasha there last summer. Sea-loving Juan Carlos is often spied setting sail from the capital’s yacht club aboard his vessel, ‘Fortuna’.
Everyone from Boris Becker to David Beckham to Jack Nicholson has been spotted teeing-off on the island’s championship courses. Even Llucmajor could soon attract celebs: Plans are afoot for an exciting development for Formula 1 fans: a brand new racing circuit called Circuit Illes Balears. Speculation is rife following Bernie Ecclestone’s recent visit and meeting with the town’s mayor. There are questions over the financing but, if it takes off, we’ll be seeing Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso.
