On a beautiful long, natural bay, Port d'Andratx is the kind of place to come if you like to dress up on your holidays. Popular with the yachting crowd, this is one of Mallorca's classiest resorts, its surrounding hillsides dotted with villas owned, or rented, by film stars. So as you can imagine, the best places to stay in Port d'Antratx are not the cheapest to be found on the island.
The small village has a charming promenade, lined with fine restaurants and bars, and these are some of the best spots on the whole island from which to watch the sunset.
Port d'Andratx started life as a fishing village, and there's still a strong fishing industry here, with around 500 boats, which help create the local colour with your sunset view.
There are a couple of lovely beaches nearby, known for their clear waters, but if you're looking for sand it's a short drive to Camp de Mar or Sant Elm.
Port d'Andratx also has a couple of cultural centres and an art gallery and it's surrounded by some picturesque scenery, so it's a great spot for walkers or cyclists too.
