Home of Solaris Sailing
Port Andratx is a charming, picturesque port in the southwest of the island with a stylish, affluent and International atmosphere built from the mid-20th century around the existing fishing port and separate from the much older Andratx town. It is also the home of Solaris Sailing. Considered by many to be the loveliest harbour in Spain, the port with its long natural bay attracts the yachting fraternity from far afield and the rich and famous own villas that you can see taking up prominent positions on the hillsides.
What attracts many visitors to Port Andratx is the fact that it is still a fishing port with a working fishing industry that provides freshly-caught fish to many of the port’s restaurants. The port is still a really great place to visit during the winter because when the restaurants are closed and there are less tourists, it reverts back to its roots as a small fishing village. Although the yacht club provides over 450 berths, you will see many yachts on anchor out in the bay adding even more character & charm to this picture postcard-perfect setting.
Port Andratx has a pleasant promenade where you will find a good assortment of art galleries, estate agents, restaurants & bars. Waterfront meals in the port are highly recommended, the bustle of daily life in a working fishing port and the stunning views just add to the whole restaurant experience. Within the port there are a couple of very small coves with bathing areas which can quickly become crowded during the summer months. If you want a beach experience, we recommend the nearby resorts of Sant Elm and Camp de Mar; which both have larger sandy beaches.
Local attractions include the remains of the watchtowers of Sant Francesc & Sant Carles and the remains of La Trapa monastery close to Sant Elm with jaw-dropping views of Sa Dragonera island. Also worth visiting is the ancient town of Andratx.
