The town of Andratx lies on the South Western side of the Island, and is a separate town to Port D’Andratx.

The town is easily reachable by road as the motorway from Palma goes right to it. It is not so much of a tourist resort, more a town where Mallorcans live. There isn’t a beach as it’s inland.

Like many Mediterranean towns, flowers seem to grow all year round, and walkways are decorated with them.

There are large street markets (held twice a week I believe), the stalls are plentiful enough that the whole town becomes dominated on market days as roads are given over to house the stalls. Whilst traditional market fare is for sale, there is also a large fresh fish and vegetables section, the sights and sounds and smells need to be seen to be appreciated.

The town is also home to a rather spectacular cactus garden, which doesn’t appear to be advertised anywhere. Entry is free, and the gardens are apparently maintained municipally. Well worth a quiet hour away from the crowds.

We spent a half day in Andratx this year and thought it was wonderful. It was a Saturday morning and was pretty quiet.
We bought a couple of papers and spent the morning sipping coffee and reading them. We sat outside the Bar Cuban and observed the local life for a while. There was a really old guy in the bar drinking coffees with a good shot of brandy after a few he appeared outside the bar to head off home we thought but he got in a tiny little battered 3 wheeler van and disappeared only to arrive back 5 minutes later and reclaim his seat at the bar and have a few more brandies. Shocked They must have a more relaxed attitude to drink driving over there. We had a wander round the town and stopped off in the square for a beer and some more people watching before heading to Sant Elm for lunch.

Beleive it or not I didn't take any pictures in Andratx affraid

Port Andratx is one of my favorite places in Mallorca definitely. Such a calm and sophisticated port while sitting in cappuccino on a summers afternoon.
