This resort in yacht charter Mallorca is located on the southwestern shore of the island, and together with Andratx and Sant Elm, constitute the main touristic developments in the region. The main attraction here would have to be the lack of commercial development in town, which is uncharacteristic for the other resorts on Mallorca’s south shore.
The distance from Palma’s Son Sant Joan International Airport is 32km which is relatively small when compared to the distances one has to travel to reach the resorts on the eastern shore. The good news is that once in Camp de Mar, the trip back to Palma for sightseeing and shopping is pretty easy to make since there is a permanent public transportation system which operates buses on a daily basis.
As a measure of the area’s importance, the 8000 permanent residents of the Andratx district swell up to 24,000 during tourist season. Also, you’ll find that many international stars the likes of Claudia Schiffer, Tom Cruise or Michael Schumacher have summer homes built here making Camp de Mar no stranger to the rich and famous scene.
Among the local attractions are the Dragonera National Park and the Dragonera Island, a 6km long rock which was named after its likeness to a dragon’s back. Nearby, in the resort of Paguera, you’ll find the best tennis courts in all yacht charter Mallorca. Also in the region, you’ll find no less than 6 championship standard golf course.
On Wednesdays, a trip to neighboring Andratx will reveal a market which can provide you with the best fresh produce as well as local crafts, but be warned: haggling is a must if you want to get the best price.
The main events in Camp de Mar are on the 29th of June when Sant Pere is celebrated in Andratx, the 16th of July in Port Andratx for the Verge del Carme, the August Fiesta de Mores y Christians at Sant Elm and the Verge de la Trapa on September 8th at S’Arracó.
