South West Property Mallorca

The entire Mallorca southwest area has long been popular with international property buyers and the real estate market remains buoyant in spite of Spain’s recession. While there is a wealth of property in this prime location, development was curtailed before reaching levels that sadly blight much of the mainland coast. Due to strict governmental building laws, residents and buyers can be assured this desirable location will never be ruined by over-development with a great range of modern villas for sale with ultimative sea views.

The Southwest - Most popular for property investments

Arranged around the huge bay of Palma de Mallorca , the South West coast incorporates the popular resorts of Palma Nova and Magaluf which, while being close on the map, are a world away from the elegant, exclusive boating marinas of Puerto Portals, Port Adriano, and Puerto Andratx.

The coastline is relatively short, punctuated by rocky coves, beaches and harbours, lapped by turquoise waters. This side of the island is famous for its brilliant sunsets, just one of the many pleasures of owning property here.

The majority of international schools are located in the South West, offering educational choice and serving as an indicator of the expanse of international residents choosing to make this their home.

Not surprisingly, this corner of the island draws affluence with its charms and the many outstanding properties on offer reflect this, from traditional renovated villas to luxury penthouses.

The beautiful natural harbours of St Elm and Puerto Andratx offer some of the most enticing property to be found in all of Mallorca. Both have a luxurious, elegant quality, set in a ravishing natural setting with views across the clear water and the rugged mountains. Cosmopolitan Puerto Andratx, with its vibrant international and Mallorcan community, thrives year-round and is widely considered to be the nicest village in Mallorca.

Nestled inland, at the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains, the town of Andratx and the village of S’Arraco are authentically Mallorcan and surrounded by a gorgeous rural landscape. Renovation properties are limited, with investors having long ago realised the potential of the area, but they can be found.

The beautiful white sandy beach at the resort of Santa Ponsa is a draw for many day trippers from Palma, which is just 20km away. Mallorca property buyers who are looking to invest in apartments to rent to holidaymakers should note that demand is high here, as in most of the South West.

Inside Mallorca Southwest

With the sea on one side and the Tramuntana mountains on the other, the interior of the South West presents some wonderful living locations. The residential areas of Bendidat and Costa D‘en Blanes, 9km and 7km west of Palma respectively, enjoy a national park environment to the north and are just minutes drive away from chic Puerto Portals and many picturesque beaches. Conversely, both areas are exclusive and in high demand. Indeed, Costa D’en Blanes, which overlooks the village of Portals Nous and the Portals marina, is likened to the Beverley Hills of Mallorca.

The South West boasts several excellent golf courses, Bendidat itself being home to the Royal Bendidat Golf Course, whose honorary president is King Juan Carlos.

The property market

When buying a property in the southwest of Mallorca, tranquillity can also be found in the town of Calvia, a charming, traditional town set away from the hustle and bustle of busy resorts, with plenty of amenities and its own lovely beaches.

Not without reason is the South West eternally popular with foreign property investors. If your requirements include a year-round community, natural beauty, sandy beaches and outdoor activities married with superb infrastructure and a dose of glamour just a short hop from Palma and the airport, then this area may be top of your list.
