San Telmo: romantic fishing village
San Telmo or Sant Elm - on the western point of Mallorca, not far from Andratx - is a small and quiet place that still conveys the impression of a traditional fishing village. The pedestrian street offer small stores, souvenir shops, bars and various sea view restaurants. The breathtaking underwater world offers many diving and snorkelling possibilities or just a few minutes boat trip to the Dragon island (Illa de Sa Dragonera), a nature reserve and bird sanctuary. In the surrounding area there are numerous hiking opportunities such as a hiking trail to the former monastery "Sa Trapa" at an altitude of 380 m above sea level. With breathtaking views of the surroundings and the sea is worth the strenuous hike. Other sports like horsebacks, golf and tennis-courses can be found in the near neighborhood. There were discussions in the last few years about to start a marina, but the nature conservancy organisations have blocked until today.
