Platja de ses Dones also known as S'Arco de Camp de Mar

Platja de ses Dones or s‘Arco de Camp de Mar is situated at four kilometres from Andratx. A rocky headland separates this quiet beach from the crowded Camp de Mar.

This coastline is quite long and very narrow. It has a greyish fine-grained sand which is the entrance to a crystal clear water, with a gentle slope, at half a hectometre the depth is only one and a half metres, so that the beach is very safe for children.

The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are not good because it is exposed to the winds from south-southwest-west and has a very gentle slope. This is why the navigator is recommended to anchor in Camp de Mar nearby. In the surroundings of the small island in the centre of the bay of Platja de Camp de Mar there is a sandy ground with seaweed at a depth that ranges between four and five metres. You have only to avoid the entrance channel for the passenger launches. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic Santa Ponça, at 3,8 nautical miles.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs until Platja de Camp de Mar. from here you have to follow paseo de la Platja de ses Dones that takes to s‘Arc de Camp de Mar. You can park your car for free in the surroundings of this beach. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located next to the beach.

Municipality information Andratx

The municipality of Andratx is situated at the western end of Majorca, where the Serra de Tramuntana has the lowest mountains (Moleta de s'Esclop, 928 metres) and the coast is characterized by the small coves and high cliffs (up to 300 metres high), with valleys in the interior. The origin of the name is uncertain (four possibilities, celtic, arab, latin or catalan).

The big ecologic richness of this territory explains that 95 percent of the extension is protected by law, with sa Dragonera, the small island with the biggest extension of the Balearic Islands (2,88 hectares, 3,7 kilometres long, na Pòpia, a hill of 353 metres and natural reserve since 1995), la Trapa (Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves) and the agricultural valleys of Andratx, s'Arracó and Camp de Mar (Áreas Naturales de Interés Paisajístico).

King Jaume I d'Aragó and his troop anchored between sa Dragonera and Sant Elm on the 7th of December 1229, three days before conquering Majorca. Between the 15th and the 17th centuries it suffered pirate attacks. Port d'Andratx was the most important Spanish port infrastructure in the 19th century, for the transport of soap toward the mainland and America.
