Puerto Andratx Has Remained Undiscovered

Aug 17, 2007
The resort of Puerto Andratx is part of the municipal district of Andratx, which covers an area of some 82km in the extreme south west corner of Majorca. Geographically the area is approximately 32km west of the capital Palma and encompasses the towns of Saracen, Sant Elm and the resort of Camp de Mar.

Puerto Andratx has so far remained almost completely undiscovered by many of the major tour operators and as far as we are aware doesnt as yet feature as a recognised destination in any of their summer or winter sun brochures. As a result most visitors here will be independent travellers who either own holiday homes in the area, or prefer to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements to the resort.

Andratx is still a very desirable place to live, and many of the impressive villas in and around the resort are either Spanish or German owned holiday homes.

If you are very lucky, you may even catch sight of either Claudia Schiffer, Tom Cruise or Michael Schumacher who all own property in the area. Andratx is certainly no stranger to the rich and famous. Over the years the town has also had a reputation for attracting celebrities.

The latest census carried out on Majorca shows that that district of Andratx has a resident population of around 8,000 people, however, statistics from the Govern de les Illes Baleares Conselleria de Turisme also shows that during the summer months this figure can increase to around 24,000 illustrating the importance of the area to the islands tourist industry.

Many years ago now Puerto Andratx was the site of a small traditional Majorcan fishing harbour and it is around here where most of the tourist development has taken place over the last few years. However, despite the recent residential development of the rugged headlands that are a feature of the coastline in the south west of Majorca, Puerto Andratx has still somehow managed to retain an authentic Majorcan feel.

On the negative side, something this resort does really lack is a beach, although if you are prepared to travel out of the town, you will find an excellent beach 3 miles down the coast at the nearby resort of Camp de Mar.

For most visitors to Puerto Andratx the lack of a beach isnt really a great problem, as instead they prefer to use the resort as a convenient base from which to explore some of the more remote areas of the west coast of the island and beyond.
