Camp de Mar Not a Traditional Package Holiday

Aug 18, 2007
The holiday resort of Camp de Mar, along with the towns of Andratx, Port d Andratx, S Arraco, and Sant Elm, are the principal developments of the municipal district of Andratx on the extreme south west corner of Majorca.

As far as the distance is concerned, the 32km or 20 mile journey west from the Son Sant Joan International airport on the outskirts of Palma, to the centre of Camp de Mar is a fairly short one.

Overall the municipal district of Andratx covers an area of 82km and is home to a resident population of around 8,000 people. However, during the summer months this figure can grow to around 24,000, illustrating the importance of the area to the islands tourist industry.

Most of the visitors to Camp de Mar dont as a rule tend to be on a traditional package holiday and many of the major tour operators in the UK dont as yet even include the resort in their summer sun offerings. Instead, most if not all, of the visitors here are independent travellers who either prefer to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements, or own holiday homes in the area.

Many of the impressive villas in and around the resort, are either Spanish or German owned holiday homes and 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. Camp de Mar is certainly no stranger to the rich and famous. Over the years the town has had a reputation for attracting celebrities of the era, one of which being the wife of Rudolf Valentino who lived in the area during the 1930s.

Camp de Mar has somehow managed to maintain the image of a small and exclusive beach resort that has remained somewhat isolated from most of the other tourist areas on the island. The half dozen or so hotels to be found here are predominantly of 4 or 5 star standards and, in the main, cater for both German and British guests looking for a peaceful beach holiday.

Other than the restaurants and bars to be found in these hotels, the range of amenities in the resort is however surprisingly limited. Evening entertainment here is also generally hotel based, but to be honest, the prospect of dancing in clubs until the early hours is not what would attract you to Camp de Mar.
