About Port Andratx

Tramuntana mountain range

With a modest population of approximately 2000, this port is indeed a private paradise. The port is shaped like a pointing finger and juts into the Balearic Sea off the synonymous Andratx shore. It faces the protected Tramuntana mountain range, which is a UNESCO Heritage Site and the ancient historic town of Andratx is about 5km away on the south side of the port. The port is flanked by Torrent des Salvel at the northern border, Avinguda de Gabriel Roca Garcias in the west, Carrer Saulet to the east and Carrer D’Isaac Peral in the south. Due to its geographical location and client demand, Port Andratx has a thriving fishing industry.

A luxury townscape

The central area is a shopping complex with boutiques, restaurants, bars, delis; all surrounded by residential properties In addition to housing in the centre of town, areas like Las Brisas and Mon Port to the eastern side of the port, offers a wide selection of properties, from contemporary and traditional Spanish villas to apartment complexes. Most residential locations are just a short walk away from the yacht club where you can dock your vessel.

The neighbourhood is picturesque and great for walking and cycling, which is a wonderful way to enjoy the Spanish riviera. The locals are warm and friendly, and for those who require a respite from its sedate style, civilization awaits in the Mallorca capital city of Palma, just half an hour away.
