If the town of Andratx is a fair size then its harbour is equally impressive and is one of the largest on the west coast of Mallorca. What do we find here? Many restaurants where you can eat fresh fish enjoying a gentle breeze, souvenirs shops, along with luxury accessories, beachwear shops with branded products, many big names and particularly in the summer months you will see familiar faces. The port is especially popular with many German tourists and residents. There are beautiful views, with In the mountains of La Mola behind the port, and since a recent building boom it has the second largest concentration of luxury homes of the island, just beaten by Son Vida.
The winter here is quieter than the summer, and you find traditional fishermen with their Llaüts taking the place of Luxury Yachts.
At least once during your stay on Mallorca should you visit the Port of Andratx. So you can say next time you see it on a television program on Mallorca “I was right there, that is the Puerto de Andratx!”
News (12.07.2011): The mallorcan summer is full of feasts and events. The Harbour of Andratx celebrates every 16th of July a boat Mass in honour of the Virgin Carmen, the patron saint of the fishermen – a colourfull popular feast for everyone..
