Estellencs Mountain Village

Estellencs beach

Estellencs Mountain village is located between Andratx and Banyalbufar. Traveling to this mountain hamlet is quite an experience. This picturesque town is located in Tramontana Mountains. So, you will travel under mountains through a tunnel that is about 2 kilometers in length. Once you are through the mountains, the road continues along the side of the mountains with great views of the sea.

Estellencs Harbour

Estellencs Mountain Village has a small harbor. The harbor is just a kilometer or so down from the village. Cala Estellencs is a fishing village. Because rocks tumble down from the mountain tops, the seashore and coastline are full of rocks. The water is amazingly clear. Local fishing boats are stored in cabins cut into the side of the mountain.
