In addition to its cultural charm, Andratx offers travellers the opportunity to enjoy the local cuisine in its cosy restaurants and bars. Mallorcan gastronomy combines Mediterranean flavours with fresh ingredients from the land and sea, creating delicious dishes to suit all tastes.


Cala Blanca: A Hidden Coastal Paradise


Just a few minutes' drive from Andratx, lies one of Mallorca's hidden gems, Cala Blanca. One of the most popular options to visit this type of corners on the island, or to follow a route with full autonomy, is to move around Palma with car hire in Mallorca airport or, if you want even more flexibility: with motorbike hire in Palma.  

As for Cala Blanca, this picturesque beach is a perfect getaway if you are looking for relaxation and rest, without the crowds typical of the more popular beaches.

Cala Blanca is known for its fine sand and crystal clear waters. Surrounded by high cliffs and lush vegetation, this bay offers a serene atmosphere and breathtaking scenery. Here, visitors can dive into the turquoise waters, sunbathe on the beach or simply enjoy a quiet picnic with the soothing sound of the waves as background music. 

Unlike some of Mallorca's busier beaches, Cala Blanca does not have a large number of tourist facilities, which contributes to its unspoilt charm. However, this is not a problem, as the nearby town of Andratx offers all the amenities needed for a pleasant getaway.

Andratx and Cala Blanca are destinations worth exploring for those looking to experience an authentic and less crowded Mallorca. Here, travellers can enjoy the beauty of the Mallorcan landscape, soak up the rich local culture and discover a quieter, more relaxed side to the island.

So, if you fancy an adventure away from the crowds and like to discover hidden corners, head to Andratx and Cala Blanca on your next visit to Mallorca.
