Port d’Andratx, which you see on our live camera, is located in the western part of Mallorca. There are almost no beaches, instead there are tiny bays, the coastal zones of which are covered with stones and gravel. But if you still want to go to the sea, then it’s better to visit the Gran Foley beach club, located in the Cala Llamp bay. There is also a very small sandy beach near the pier, right in the center of the port – Ses Bassetes and Bismar. Near the coast lies a small island of Sa Dragonera (nature park), which can be reached by boat or as part of an excursion group.

Port d’Andratx – a dynamic and cosmopolitan place, incredibly similar to the Italian Portofino. Rich foreigners, who bought a large part of the estate here, also own luxury yachts, which are located in one of the most modern in Mallorca Yachting centres. The port, you see on the web camera, is known for its restaurants with the freshest seafood coming directly from the fish market. Fish farming is well developed here and the sailors profession is very much in demand. But recently in this region people started to grow almonds, cabbage, dates and citrus fruits and that gradually displaced fishing.
The very ancient town of d’Andratx on our live stream camera, where the port is located, is very small – only 8,000 people live permanently here. To this day, here remained clay products and coins dated to the 2nd century BC – this is the legacy of the ancient Romans who lived on these lands. In 13th century, d’Andratx was an important cultural center and in 16th century was built a system of observation towers (14 towers), but to this day only 12 of them have been remained. The city is widely known for its market with souvenirs and products of local artisans.
In the old part of the city you can find an interesting St. Mary’s church (Santa Maria de Andratx), with a partially remained interior in the Baroque style, a temple S’Arraco, locks Castel de Son Mas (occupied by the city administration), Castel Andraitj and the building of the former Cistercian monastery (now it’s ruins). In the city is opened a contemporary art gallery – CCA Andrax Art Center, Ledtke Museum in port and cultural center in SA Taronha, where concerts, exhibitions and workshops for children and adults are held.
Today d’Andratx is a resort town where are settled such a celebrities as supermodel Claudia Schiffer, film star Tom Cruise, film directors like Guy Hamilton and Fernando Trujebaj, opera singer Regina Krespin, as well as the European political figures.
All year round in Palma de Mallorca is comfortable temperature. The island of Mallorca is situated in the zone of dominance of the Mediterranean, forming a warm winter and hot summer. In the height of summer season there remain high temperature, but the heat is not exhausting due to the rather mild climate. Winter is moderately wet and quite warm. The unique climate of Mallorca allows you to perfectly relax on the island during the year. However, the main tourist season falls between April and October. At this time the beach vacation is at the highest level. The number of sunny hours a day is pretty high and the water temperature rises to 24-25 C, so it is not surprising that Mallorca is an ideal choice for a summer holiday. The winds on the island are blowing mainly in the winter and spring periods.
