Port D Andrax postcard
Want to enjoy the sunny summer weather of Mallorca with a little less hustle and bustle than the capital of Palma? We know just the place – say hello to Port d’Andratx on the Southwest tip of Mallorca.
Not to be confused with the small town of Andratx about 5 kilometres down the road, Port d’Andratx blossomed in the twentieth century from a tiny fishing village to one of the Mediterranean’s best harbours. Today, you’ll find it teaming with an eclectic mix of inhabitants ranging from jetsetters and celebrities to local fisherman.
Villas are the most popular form of accommodation in Port d’Andratx, mostly located on the hillside or the port itself, which makes this is great place to get away for families or larger groups. There are also a handful of hotels ranging in style and quality within close proximity to the resort for those looking for a different kind of stay.
Aside from spending lazy days enjoying a drink looking out over the dreamy harbour area, the town’s major attraction is its beautiful mountain setting. Golf enthusiasts who want to work on their handicap are also in luck; there’s a great course just down the road in Camp de Mar.
As well as having its own charms, Port d’Andratx is also a great base from which to enjoy more of what the island of Mallorca has to offer. Those with a greater sense of adventure can enjoy hiking to Sant Elm or cycling along the coastal roads which are touted as some of the best routes in the world. If a slower pace is your thing, the resort itself has shops ranging from the laid-back to the luxurious or a boat trip to the island of Sa Dragonera to enjoy the views from a different angle.
This place really does give new meaning to the phrase ‘Mallorca uncovered’.
