One larger beach that is popular with the tourists in Port Andratx is Cala Llamp Bay, which is a small bay and beach club that is situated right around the corner from the town of Port Andratx. Since the beach is not a very large one, it is not quite as ideal for sunbathing as many other beaches in Majorca, but instead is great for swimming in the beautiful and clear turquoise waters. While there isnt much sand for sunbathing or relaxing, there are plenty of flat rocks that work well for a short break if you bring yourself a lounge chair or towel, and since the beach is so close to the marina, it is a great place for boating and water sports. The beach, which has a stunning view of the Tramuntana Mountains, is one of the most beautiful in the area.

We could not have had a better service. The driver was waiting for us with a very clearly displayed name sign. He was very polite, friendly and helpful. We had the same driver on our return journey and again he was on time and very helpful.
