Andratx is a coastal municipality with small coves, big cliffs and four islets, among which it is important to highlight the island of Sa Dragonera, since it was declared as Natural Park in 1995. In this municipality there are the population centres of Andratx, S’Arracó and Sa Coma, while Port d’Andratx, Sant Elm and Camp de Mar are located on the coast.
Camp de Mar is a small tourist area that has the privilege of having one of the most beautiful beaches in Mallorca thanks to its transparent waters and its white sand. History has also left its footsteps in this small area. The Torre des Cap Andritxol is a good example of the fortifications that used to defend the island against pirate and corsair attacks.
The Andratx Golf Club, inaugurated in 1999, is located here. It has 18 holes. In this area you can also find different establishment, such as bars, restaurants, pharmacies, banks, shops and a medical centre, amongst others.
3 km away there are the population centres of Andratx and Peguera. The port of Andratx is one of the best and more spectacular natural ports in the Balearic Islands. It is surrounded by the beautiful coves of Cala Llamp, Cala Moragues and Cala d’Egos. In the past, this harbour locality was an old fishermen refuge, but today it has become one of the main and most visited tourist areas in Mallorca due to its nautical activity. All this favours a very exclusive residential tourism.
Port d’Andratx includes some of the most well-known restaurants on the island. At night, this place becomes one of the liveliest zones in this municipality.
Sant Elm is an old fishermen village that has become a small, quiet and welcoming tourist resort. It consists of summer residential homes, although you can also find a wide variety of restaurants, bars and a small commercial area.
In the past, the small coastal area of Sant Elm was known as Sa Palomera. It was where King James I’s troops anchored before they disembarked in Sant Ponça in 1229. At the beginning of the 20th century, people from Sant Elm lived from fishing and salting fish. Today, this small locality with a population of 300 inhabitants lives from tourism.
The biggest beach in Sant Elm is known as Es Geperut. This beach is the most extensive in the whole municipality. It has fine sand and is sheltered by the islet of Es Pantaleu.
In Sant Elm, there is another beach known as Es Carregador. It is a small beach located in a residential area.
The beach or cove of Sant Elm, known as En Basset, is a virgin gravel beach with a beautiful seabed. It is located in the natural spot of Cala en Basset, in front of the island of Sa Dragonera and at the foot of the spectacular cliffs of La Trapa. This place is without a doubt the perfect spot to practice scuba diving. Sant Elm has a diving school.
The famous cove of Es Conills is a small gravel beach situated in Sant Elm. It is 15 metres long and 5 metres wide, and is surrounded by sandstone on which you can lie down.
The cove of Cala Egos is a virgin stone beach with turquoise waters and is surrounded by an extensive pine tree forest. On the coast nearby there are many coves. Cala Egos is located between Sant Elm and Port d’Andratx and is a beautiful place of great landscape value. It is far from the tourist overcrowding and difficult to access, since you can only get there by sea of after a one-hour long walk if you depart from Port d’Andratx, and after a two-hour long walk if you depart from Sant Elm.
