Andratx is a municipality located in the Balearic Islands, particularly in the region of the Sierra de Tramontana, southwest of the island of Mallorca. The territory is flanked by Calviá in the east, Estellencs in the northwest and the Mediterranean Sea in the north, west and south, just twenty kilometers from Palma de Mallorca. The municipality is distributed in six towns: Port d'Andratx, Sant Elm and Camp de Mar, which are the coastal communities and Andratx, s'Arracó and Sa Coma, which are located in the center. More than one celebrity has spent their holidays here.
In Andratx you can find perfectly equipped urban beaches, as the beach of Camp de Mar, which feature fine sand and crystalline waters, with the addition of being in front of a small island that can be visited on foot through a wooden bridge.
Although urban beaches are the perfect choice if you want to stay close to your rental apartment, you can also move away from the urban bustle by visiting some of the unspoiled beaches of the municipality such as Cala d'Egos, a rocky beach of turquoise waters which can only be accessed by boat or after a hike that takes one and two hours, which will take you away from mass tourism and allow you to enjoy the beauty of the landscape in an atmosphere of peace, where you can find several caves or take a dive and observe the sea bed.
In addition, you will be in a population with an important religious heritage, among which we highlight Iglesia de Santa María de Andratx and Nuestra Señora del Carmen del Port d'Andratx.
As a seaside town, the Andragense gastronomy include dishes made with fresh fish and seafood, among which deserve to be named the Mero a la Mallorquina or the Cabracho Hervido, but don’t forget to start with a plate of shrimps.
To accompany your food, you can drink fine and homegrown wines from the Santa Caterina wineries. In Son Bosc, one of their estates in Andratx, you can even visit the winery for wine tasting.
And to end with a typical pastry of the place, you can sweeten your palate with the Gató (almond sponge cake) or freshen up with a toasted almond ice cream on the way to your rental apartment.
This small town of just over 11,000 inhabitants is characterized by holding coastal and mountain beautiful landscapes, thanks to its proximity to the Sierra de Tramontana, the most popular saw of the islands. In addition, seven hundred meters from the coast is Isla sa Dragonera, declared a Natural Park in 1995, featuring landscapes that range from small coves to imposing cliffs. Although formerly Andratx was a fishing town, its wonderful beaches and the amazing craggy landscape surrounding it have made tourism the major source of income of the population.
When you get to your rental accommodation, surely your children will be willing to go to the beach, so you can take them to Raco de Camp de Mar, also known as Platja de ses Dones, ideal for children since it is a shallow beach where they can enjoy themselves without fear of drowning. On this beach, which is a hundred and fifty meters long and five wide, your children will have all the space they need to make sandcastles, play football or fly kites.
Moreover, you can awaken their adventurous spirit by leading them to do one of the many walking tours both on the Isla Dragonera and the nearby Sierra de Tramontana.
But Andratx is more than just beaches. Isla Sa Dragonera, with a length of 4'2 kilometers, also offers great attractions. The view of the cliffs of the island on its west side will remain in your mind forever, and you can also do a walking tour of the two lighthouses of the island or the Torre de Llebeig, built in 1585 to prevent the entry of pirates to the island.
Whether traveling to the Balearic Islands by plane or boat, for example, to bring your vehicle and get to your rental apartment without having to use public transport, your first stop is Palma de Mallorca, twenty kilometers from your coveted holiday destination.
If you are using public transportation, once you get to the city, go to the Intermodal Station, get on the bus 107 and wait to get to your destination, about an hour later.
If instead you have your own car or rented one once you got to the island, your tour will be much simpler: just take the Ma-1 and drive for about half an hour.
Once in Andratx, just unpack, settle in your rental accommodation and enjoy your holiday.
