S’Arracó and Sant Elm, jewels in Andratx

Port d’Andratx enjoys a picturesque setting located around 5km from Andratx town. It’s consider the loveliest harbour in the Mediterranean. This is an exclusive corner of the island that offers a cosmopolitan lifestyle in what has remained a picturesque fishing village. Close to Puerto Andratx we can find two incredible locations.

S’Arracó is small village, a quiet place to live with good access to nearby towns and resorts. It consists mainly of traditional, stone properties and retains the rustic charm of old Mallorca. The village was once part of a larger area stretching from the small beach resort of St Elm to the monastery of ‘Sa Trapa’ and included the island of sa Dragonera. S’Arraco has a strong French influence because many of its citizens left the area for France and later returned. Today S’Arraco is home to a quiet, international community in search of rural tranquility. There are many things to do in the surrounding areas which are particularly popular for hiking, biking and scuba. The Tramuntana mountain range and Galatzo Reserve Nature Park are also within striking distance. With less than 1,000 inhabitants, this quiet town has remained strong outside the existing tourism development in other villages in the municipality of Andratx. Many foreigners residing in the village throughout the year, especially British and Germans. Its small school of fifty students allows active participation of parents in their education. S'Arracó architecture features traditional Majorcan houses, with a small orchard or garden; also it allows us to see some examples of modernist architecture. In August is celebrated the annual festival of the village and its streets are filled with music and celebrations. The town of Andratx and Puerto de Andratx are within a 10 minute drive and the picturesque fishing village of San Telmo can be reached in 4 minutes by car.

San Telmo is just 10 minutes west of Puerto de Andratx and approximately 30 minutes from Palma, in a place protected by the islet of Pantaleu and very close to the island Sa Dragonera. The charm of this pleasantly simple village lies in the fishermen's houses built directly on the shore and the beautiful Mediterranean waters invite you to swim in them. Its beautiful beach is well equipped with a small playground, coves and restaurants and cafes relaxed atmosphere among which restaurants and seafood paella; also has the best natural itineraries and viewpoints of the island. The largest of the beaches of Sant Elm is known as Es Geperut beach. This beach is the largest in the municipality, with 125 m long and 30 m wide. We also found another beach in Sant Elm known as Es Carregador. It is a small beach that is located in a residential area of summer homes, with the shore and the rocky bottom, where you can sunbathe and enjoy a leisurely bath with Dragonera on the horizon.
