Mercado de Andratx

Andratx market, all the flavor of the island

Crafts, clothing, footwear, flowers, fresh fruit and vegetables, pickles, fresh bread, cold cuts, etc. All this and much more offers the weekly Andratx market, which is held every Wednesday, except holidays, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Passeig de Son Mas.

In the food stalls, it is common to find typical products of the island depending on the season. If you visit the Andratx market in summer, we recommend you get some fleshy and juicy tomatoes, medium green peppers and sweet white onions from the Mallorcan garden with which to prepare the Mallorcan salad par excellence: the trempó (comes from the verb ‘trempar ‘which means ‘dress’). You just have to cut these ingredients and add a little oil and salt to make the magic work. The secret to the success of the dish is to use a lot of tomato, pepper to a lesser extent and little onion. Besides being a fresh and light meal, trempó is a source of fiber and contains antioxidants with which to take care of our health.

Another of the traditional Mallorcan dishes that can be made with exactly the same base (tomato, peppers and onions, preferably of autochthonous varieties) and that is desired in summer is the coca de trempó. Very simple to prepare and a delight for most palates. As in the previous recipe, it is necessary to cut the vegetables into squares, which are placed on a dough of flour, butter and baker’s yeast to which oil and water are added to knead it. Then it is put in the oven at about 200 degrees and ready to serve!

If you are one of those who is used to accompanying meals with bread, we also advise you to stop at the stops set up by some ovens in the municipality, where the classic and delicious country bread is sold (an essential) and other specialties such as panades, cocarrois, robiols or ensaïmades.

At Can Pep we cook for you with first-class ingredients

Because we know that pleasure grows exponentially when they give us cooked food, at Can Pep we take care to gather the best products from the Mallorcan countryside to delight you with simple but no less tasty recipes such as seasonal gazpacho or Mallorcan tomato salad with Buffalo mozzarella. Typical summer dishes that can be complemented with fresh fish and meat. Ask us without obligation for the recommendations of the day.

Sunset in Andratx: The top 3 places

The municipality of Andratx occupies the westernmost part of the island of Mallorca. And as the west is synonymous with beautiful sunsets, watching the sunset in Andratx is one of the magical plans that this area of ​​the island offers.

Some of the most beautiful sunsets in Andratx and even in all of Mallorca take place here. You can also continue to the area in cove en Basset or even to the tower of the same name, further away. Throughout the area, the sun sets under the imposing silhouette of the island of sa Dragonera, something that makes it day magical.

Located 128 meters above sea level, the sa Mola lighthouse, one of the municipality’s lighthouses, offers a good panoramic view to enjoy a good sunset in Andratx. It can be reached by car, although space in the vicinity of the lighthouse is limited. The place acts as a balcony over the Mediterranean, where the view is lost on the horizon.

Andratx lighthouses: route to visit them

The Port d’Andratx is the westernmost port in Mallorca. In its surroundings, the lighthouses could not be missing, those lookouts of the sea that arouse so much interest in visitors. Andratx’s lighthouses bear witness to the passage of time and have evolved with it. From those years in which the figure of the lighthouse keeper was something totally essential until today, when its surveillance and lighting system has been automated. Do you know all the lighthouses in Andratx and its surroundings? Here is a complete list to organize a route through these guardians of the sea.

Port d’Andratx lighthouse

It is the most visible of all, since it is located on the outer dock of the port that was inaugurated in 1902. This lighthouse has starred in impressive images in each storm that has affected the port. In addition, there are many who have enjoyed their figure during the sunset. A few minutes away is Cala en Fonoll, one of the beaches of Andratx that you can discover in this other article.

Sa Mola lighthouse

The Sa Mola Lighthouse was inaugurated in 1974. In those years, they began to build lighthouses without housing for lighthouse keepers. The one in Sa Mola is 10 meters high, but its figure stands imposing on a cliff 128 meters above sea level. With these figures, it is not surprising that the lighthouse itself is an ideal viewpoint over the Mediterranean. To visit it from Port d’Andratx it only takes 8 minutes by car.

The lighthouses of sa Dragonera

The island of sa Dragonera, whose natural park can be visited with the corresponding permit, is home to the rest of Andratx’s lighthouses. Despite its size, the island has three lighthouses, although the Na Pòpia lighthouse, inaugurated in 1852 at the highest point of sa Dragonera, fell into disuse in 1910. It was then that the other two that remain active today were built: the Llebeig Lighthouse and the Tramuntana Lighthouse.

The one in Llebeig, 130 meters above sea level, has a 15-meter masonry tower on a stone building with a red roof, like the Tramuntana Lighthouse. Both replaced their predecessor, Na Pòpia. For decades, these two Andratx lighthouses were maintained by their respective lighthouse keepers and their families until their shutdown in the 1960s.

Golf en Andratx, Camp de Mar

The course has 18 holes and is popular with golfers as one of the most challenging. Simply perfect for challenge-loving golfers. From the starting hole, a challenging par 4 that forces you to start with a good right shot, until the last of its holes. It is a short par 5 in which to sharpen the dexterity due to the water hazard on your left side.

The longest hole in Spain

Hole number 6 of the Andratx golf course presents 609 meters from the tee. This makes it the longest hole in Spain, attracting hundreds of golfers each year. In addition, on their route, athletes find unevenness between vegetation and water obstacles. To all this we must add its incredible views, since from the field you can see the Bay of Camp de Mar, nestled between mountains.

Faced with such a challenge, the Andratx Golf course staff make golfers feel at home in this area of ​​Camp de Mar. With a warm welcome and attention to match the most demanding clients.

Golf de Andratx is less than five kilometers from the Can Pep Restaurant.

The finishing touch to relax while enjoying the best views of Port de Andratx.

Qué ver en Andratx - Vista del Puerto

Andratx: what to see

A must for those who want to explore the Serra de Tramuntana and home to artists and writers throughout history, Andratx, also known as “la Vila”, is a quiet municipality in the southeast of the island that preserves its traditional character, especially in its fishing port: Port d’Andratx.

Both from the historical-patrimonial point of view, as well as the landscape and nature, Andratx offers visitors multiple experiences in any of its urban centers.

Camp de Mar

It is home to some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Another of its attractions, such as the tower des cap Andritxol, built to defend the island from pirate attacks, contrasts with other more modern elements, such as the Andratx Golf course facilities, ideal for practicing this sport.

Puerto de Andratx

It is an excellent claim for lovers of the sea and nautical. While in the past it was a refuge for fishermen and has managed to preserve its picturesque appearance, today it largely lives off exclusive residential tourism.

Walking along the promenade and the pier, where the Lonja is located is one of the most pleasant activities to do in this pleasant cosmopolitan and cheerful corner in equal measure, where there is also a place for shopping, sun and bathing and leisure night.

You cannot leave Puerto de Andratx without stopping at one of the terraces overlooking the sea along the promenade, such as Can Pep, or at the emblematic Club de Vela Puerto de Andratx , a perfectly equipped marina.


It is a small town of less than 1,000 inhabitants that enlightens the sight of any visitor with its charming low houses with orchards or gardens, typical of inland towns.

You can always make a stop on the way in one of the three cafes where visitors usually congregate, before contemplating the church of “Sant Crist”, the building of “ca Ses Monges” or daring with an excursion to the monastery of La Trap.

Sa Coma

Home to old estates such as Son Lluís and beautiful possessions, Sa Coma is nestled in the Coma Calenta valley and is home to the CCA Andratx, a cultural center dedicated to contemporary art on the island with several exhibition spaces, a café and a gift shop .

Sant Elm

The troops of Jaime I anchored in this coastal nucleus before landing in Santa Ponça. Until the beginning of the s. XX fishing and salting were its main economic activities. At present, it is a small tourist center that does not lack anything: bars, restaurants, shops, etc.

The tower of Sant Elm, the monastery of La Trapa or the defense towers of creeks in Basset and Llebeig are some of the examples of its vast historical heritage. To cool off and sunbathe, the beaches “sa Gran” and “sa Petita”, with fine sand, and those of Cala Conills and Basset stand out.

Sant Elm also has the honor of having two natural areas of great interest: the Dragonera Island Natural Park and the Trapa Natural Reserve, perfect for family tourism.
