Mallorca enjoys a unique status in the Mediterranean region. The southwest of the island especially, has offered a perfect symbiosis of multifaceted sports, recreation and leisure activities for many years.
In only 25 minutes via the motorway you can reach all the famous places on the southwest coast. Whether you are a fan of yachting in the glamorous harbour of Puerto Portals, or whether you want to be active on the beautiful golf courses of Son Vida, Santa Ponsa or Camp de Mar – the southwest of the island offers you a mild climate throughout the year, as well as an excellent infrastructure especially for permanent residents.
The region around Puerto de Andratx with one of the most beautiful natural harbours of Mallorca, features a very attractive landscape. Here, in the wonderful foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains, you will find untouched nature with stunning panorama hiking trails, unique flora and fauna and interesting wine-growing regions.
Through the ages, the harbour has kept its traditional Mallorcan culture to this day. Here you will find old Mallorcan fishing boats along with prestigious sailing yachts and leisure boats in the Club de Vela, embedded in the beautiful scenery of mountains and soft hills.
The fact that Puerto de Andratx has mostly escaped mass tourism has attracted many international holidaymakers, residents and property owners for many years and Mallorca has never lost its attractiveness through the years. People mix in village life which takes place throughout the year; they know each other, meet in one of the romantic fish restaurants at the harbour boulevard or in the popular wine bodega next door.
In the last years, Puerto de Andratx has developed from the former glamorous holiday resort which used to be dominated by Germans only to a very popular international location. Today, an interesting cosmopolitan mix of German, English, Scandinavian and other international guests reflects the daily appearance of the harbour. Generous mansions and finca estates of well-known celebrities or men of independent means from TV, sports or industry, who have created a secondary or holiday residence in these unique surroundings, are situated on the hills around the harbour and in the hinterland.
