Andraxt Market – Wednesday
With over 200 stalls selling local produce and arts and crafts unique to the region, Andraxt market is the ideal place to get lost. Due to its long isles and large display of ‘just about everything’, you could spend a full afternoon here, easily.
Referred to as an ‘ancient’ town along the Mediterranean, Andraxt is known for its classic pottery making, with locals producing some of the most stunning, high-quality plates, bowls and decorative tapas dishes in the region.
Located at one of the stalls in the market, is a pottery-seller who not only offers a selection of hand-made products, but also gives visitors a chance to sit at the wheel. Why not give it a try; you might discover a hidden talent?
The market also has an expansive food canteen boasting over 20 different world cuisines. While away your afternoon by ogling at the traditional food being prepared right in front of your eyes; watch as delicate squid are fried, sardines are plunged into fragrant marinades and coal-fire ovens are stoked to prepare for the arrival of a soft tortilla.
If these dishes sound appealing, but not quite the right location for a romantic dinner, then check out Miramar de Giuliano Restaurant. Situated at Port d’Andratx, this Mediterranean-themed restaurant was founded way back in 1927 and continues to be a favourite amongst the locals. Sit underneath the outdoor cabana, lit only by candles and feel the sea breeze on your face.
If you prefer a more luxury shopping experience, head to Port Andratx, where you’ll find a range of fashion, fine art and gift shops.
