Platja de Sant Elm or es Geperut is situated at eight kilometres from Andratx, and it is named by the oratory of 1279 by the king Jaume II, dedicated to the saint of the navigators. This sandy area is the biggest in Andratx and one of the most important touristic areas which are not massive.
Es Geperut is divided into two beaches, the bigger one has white sand and the smaller one has gravel. In front of its coast you can see the small island of es Pantaleu, where the conquist of Majorca by Catalonia and Aragon began with king Jaume I in 1229, and Illa de sa Dragonera.
This bay is the last safe anchorage between Andratx and Sóller. It is open to the winds from the southwest-west-northwest, although it is protected by es Pantaleu, with a calm water, except when the wind is blowing from the west-southwest. There are two areas for anchoring: between the small island and the coast, on the northwest of the wharf, with a depth of two metres, lots of small boats tied to the buoys and the access area for passenger launches, aswell as between es Pantaleu and the beach, toward southeast, on a sandy ground, with a depth between four and seven metres. The nearest port facilities are located at Port d‘Andratx, at 3,6 nautical miles.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. You can park your car in the surroundings of this beach on a pay-parking area. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located at ten metres from the beach.
These characteristics explain that the beach is very crowded by by local visitors and tourists.
