The municipality of Andratx occupies the westernmost part of the island of Mallorca.

From any point of Sant Elm you can see an incredible sunset. But those who are looking for the perfect corner, will have to cross the town to get closer to the Punta Blanca area. 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.

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.

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.
