Home to holidaying celebrities, traditional fishermen and opulent architecture, the picturesque port of Andratx effortlessly combines culture, class and charisma. Occupying a coastal cove and the rolling hillsides of Mallorca, the impeccably chic resort allures thousands of affluent travellers desiring the style, sophistication and sun this resort offers. Fiestas, carnivals and parties decorate the streets every week and the cultural centre of the town hums with history and heritage while the port propels gently with the tranquil activity of fishing.
A gentle morning in the picturesque port will suitably relax and refresh visitors seeking refuge: wander the bespoke boutiques of Port Andratx before gazing enviously at the 300 yachts docked in the marvellous marina. The crystal clear waters and silken sand of the port’s beaches will inevitably beckon, so enjoy a fresh juice or cold beer on the sublime shores before venturing into the cultural centre of the town to enjoy architectural marvels such as the Son Mas, a former 15th century Arabian now used as the town hall.
If being surrounding by breath-taking coastal and mountain beauty isn’t sufficient, the town of Andratx will also satisfy those seeking cultural pursuits. The CCA Andratx Art Centre houses captivating collections of contemporary art while the Sa Taronja Cultural Centre hosts concerts, exhibitions and workshops on an incredibly regular basis. Every Wednesday, the town bursts into kaleidoscopic colour when the market breathes life into the streets.
Absorb the atmospheric and alluring ambience of Rocamar Restaurant, an exquisite eatery that overlooks the languid harbour and glittering hilltop town. Specialities, as imagined, are fish and seafood dishes that use freshly caught ingredients; regional delicacies such as paella and shrimp are given refined and contemporary transformations and presented in a magnificent manner. It’s a truly delicious and dynamic dining experience.(Restaurante Rocamar, Av. Almirante Riera Alemany, 27, 07157 Port d’Andratx, Illes Balears, Spain)
