Sant Elm Mallorca

On our last day, we explored the West of Mallorca, between Sant Elm and Palma. This is the beautiful village of Sant Elm, at the very end of PM-103. White yachts are moored on crystal clear blue-green water, the sky is blue, and the bench is waiting for someone to enjoy the scenery. How much better can it possibly get?


Sant Elm Mallorca

Sant Elm could preserve its charme just because the village can be reached only through some curvy, narrow roads. While there are a few bigger hotels, these do not disturbe the overall impression of a peaceful place for a vacation. The village was first mentioned in the 13th century, and the Castell de Sant Elm can still be seen today.


San Telmo Mallorca

Another photo of Sant Elm (or, as it is called in Castellan -Madrid Spanish-, San Telmo). You have access to the beach and to the rocky coastline from almost anywhere in the village - stairs lead from the main street down to the water. But we actually prefer their beach... :-)


San Telmo Mallorca

This is the central beach of Sant Elm (San Telmo), and you can see one of the very few bigger hotels on the left side. The view must be fantastic. Just imagine sitting on the patio in the evening, watching the sun go down, and having a nice red wine!


Beach Sant Elm Mallorca

Another photo of the central beach in Sant Elm. The beach is clean, wide enough for everyone, and has all the facilities, restaurants and shops nearby.


Beach Sant Elm Mallorca

The final photo of Sant Elm. The village is a good starting point for hikes into the surrounding hills. Or take a boat trip to the Parc Natural de Dragonera, an island right in front of the bay. The island is fully dedicated to the Natural Park, and is a paradise for nature lovers!


Port d'Andratx Mallorca

Now let's hop over to Port d'Antratx, a stylish and chic yacht harbour. I bet the two girls on the photo enjoy the view as much as I do. :-)

Harbour Restaurant Port d'Andratx

Port d'Andratx may not be best known for its beaches, but for its excellent restaurants at the harbour. They will be happy to cater you almost any time of the day, and the awesome views will be included (and yes, they have tables in the shadow as well).


Port d'Andratx Harbour

There not just yachts in the harbour of Port d'Antratx, but also traditional fisher boats like this one. A walk along the piers is quite enjoyable.
