Andratx is one of Mallorca’s oldest resorts and sits on the south west tip of the island. It is known for its extremely picturesque nature and romantic vibes due its modern art galleries, narrow streets and very rustic design. Add on the fact that it has a stunning backdrop against the Tramuntana Mountains and you have all of the ingredients for a truly unique and memorable holiday destination.
Low-cost holidays to Mallorca are really popular with us Brits and the island can be reached from most regional airports.

Andratx tends to be at its busiest during the summer period - from Spring until Autumn, but doesn’t really experience huge amounts of tourists at any point in the year. Temperatures tend to reach the lower 30s on most days throughout the summer months. Prices are usually a little bit cheaper outside of these months from Autumn to Spring while temperatures still remain very mild. This is perhaps the ideal time to visit if you plan on doing some hiking or other activities that may be too hot to do during the summer!
The town has a deep history and culture. Some of the best sights to see in the area include a selection of grand, ancient churches as well as the ruins of a former Trappist monastery. There are many local markets to pick from which provide a selection of fresh, local produce to get stuck into. The nature aspect of this place is perhaps its most attractive feature though, with the valleys, mountains, forests and coastal scenery all ripe for exploring or just simply enjoying.
Hotels and accommodation in the area tend to be on the smaller end of the scale but the town does actually have a 5-star hotel right in the centre. In the outskirts, there are many holiday homes, private villas and more budget-friendly hotels to choose from. Restaurants in the region are also extremely popular due to their mix of local and international cuisine - many of which also use local products.
