Like many towns around the coast, the village is small, and was set 5km inland from the port to deter pirate raids. The harbour is one of the prettiest in Mallorca.
If you do not wish to feel out of place, it is recommended that you dress up both in the port and the town as Andratx is one of Mallorca's classiest resorts!
There is easy access to great cycling routes. You are close to Palma and to the airport for any easy transfer. Lots of excellent restaurants and bars in the town as well as the port.
