Real estate in Camp de Mar: everything you need to know
The picturesque village of Camp de Mar has a dream beach of fine sand flanked by two rocky headlands and surrounded by turquoise waters. Playa de Camp de Mar measures about 180 metres long and 60 metres wide. Part of the seabed is rocky. On a small island opposite the beach is the Illeta restaurant, which is connected to the beach by a wooden plank bridge. From the mainland, the restaurant seems to float on the sea.
Real Estate in Camp de Mar - Villas & Apartments with sea view
The small coastal town is characterised by properties, residential complexes, terraced houses to villas in the middle and upper price segments. Situated between Port de Andratx and Paguera, Camp de Mar has become a popular alternative to these two towns for property buyers. Golf course properties, villas with sea views, Mediterranean apartment complexes with pools and beautifully landscaped gardens characterise the townscape of Camp de Mar.
With only about 230 inhabitants, Camp de Mar is one of the smaller residential areas on Mallorca and is a typical holiday resort that is mainly well frequented during the summer months. Property buyers here are often families, golfers or people who value proximity to the beach.
Camp de Mar became famous because of the Steigenberger Hotel, the golf course and the fact that top model Claudia Schiffer owned an absolutely luxurious villa in a top location until 2005 and that some filmmakers also used Camp de Mar as a film location. For example, the village served as a backdrop for the film "Long Way Down" with Pierce Brosnan. The Spanish Netflix production "Mentiras (Lies)" was also filmed there.
In addition to properties in the medium price segment, Camp de Mar also offers a wide range of properties in the luxury or premium segment. Properties with a sea view usually cost more than 1.5 million euros, new buildings are usually only available from 3 million euros.
In Camp de Mar, properties, flats, penthouses, terraced houses, flats and houses directly on the golf course are always in demand. For this reason, project developers such as Taylor Wimpey and Zinnia have built very attractive residential complexes near the sea in Camp de Mar in recent years. Some of these properties have a breathtaking sea view. One property project in the first line of the sea deserves special mention. Several luxury properties with particularly low energy consumption were built here.
As in the rest of Mallorca, only a few building plots are still available here. Despite all this, there are still plots available for building in the second and third sea lines, and even some plots in the first sea line with panoramic views.
Architecture and architecture in Camp de Mar
Due to the tourist character of Camp de Mars, the properties available here are rather recent and of a corresponding standard. Flats, terraced houses and villas dominate the townscape alongside holiday hotels and the golf course. Community or apartment complexes and flats characterise the centre of Camp der Mar. Houses and villas are located to the east and west of the village centre. In addition to the "Mediterranean" architectural style, there are also villas with a more minimalist design.
Particularly noteworthy architecturally are the buildings by Alberto Rubio, who has built a unique property in Camp de Mar. This is a property reminiscent of a seagull: "White roofs and curved lines in harmony with nature, the sea, the sky and the coast" are Rubio's artistic trademarks.
The star architect was inspired by the breathtaking landscape of Mallorca when designing his "seagull villas". Flowing, undulating lines from the centre to the wings create sweeping curves. These form spacious, open interiors and an intricate weave of vaulted beamed ceilings.
The exteriors of these unique estates feature arched terraces, large infinity pools and outdoor dining and kitchen areas. Buyers of such luxury properties are not only proud owners of fantastic Mallorca real estate, but also of unique architectural masterpieces.
Golfing in Camp de Mar
Golf de Andratx is one of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses in the southwest of Mallorca. The course is beautifully landscaped with old olive groves, almond trees, traditional Mallorcan stone walls, seven ponds and lakes. In addition to narrow fairways, there are a total of 60 bunkers. Situated directly by the sea, the golf course blends seamlessly into the surrounding landscape between the mountains and the bay of Camp de Mar.
Some very high tees offer great views of the sea and the coast. Its notable honorary members include Claudia Schiffer, Otto Waalkes and Franz Beckenbauer. You might even see Hollywood stars Michael Douglas and his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones teeing off.
The partly steep and rocky nature of the golf course was already a challenge for the team of architects during the planning stage. With its narrow fairways, the golf course is one of the most difficult courses on the entire island. This course demands absolute precision from the players; beginners with a high handicap often have their difficulties. A special challenge is the "Green Monster - Green Monster", common to hole 6, which at 609 metres is the longest par 5 in Spain.
The golf course also features: a high-quality pro shop with the latest golf fashion and equipment, a 300-metre driving range with pitching, chipping and putting greens, as well as 3 practice bunkers.
The golf club's "Campino" Clubhouse spoils its guests with high-quality Italian cuisine. From the terrace, visitors not only enjoy the culinary dishes, but also an excellent view of the 18th hole, the sea of Camp de Mar and a spectacular sunset in the evening.

The history of Camp de Mar
Camp de Mar has a relatively short history. The entire coast between Port d'Andratx and Paguera was the target of numerous pirate raids in the Middle Ages. The rugged coastline offered these North African buccaneers sufficient protection to hide. Consequently, numerous forts and watchtowers were built in the 16th century to protect the coast. The municipalities of Andratx and Calvia alone built 12 watchtowers that have survived for centuries.
Camp de Mar established itself as a holiday resort in 1932 with the construction of the first hotel. The British secret agent Thomas Harris was one of the most famous residents after the Second World War. In 1949, he bought a property there and has since devoted himself to painting. The spy died under mysterious circumstances in a car accident.
Camp de Mar later developed into a luxury tourist destination. Small, exclusive hotels were built near the beach, attracting mainly wealthy holidaymakers.
The many properties such as villas, penthouses and flats in exclusive residential complexes, some of which are home to renowned businessmen, celebrities and film stars, also speak for Camp de Mar's upscale lifestyle.
Camp de Mar is a classic holiday resort on Mallorca that is particularly well suited for families and golf. Properties on the golf course, villas with sea views, Mediterranean apartment complexes characterise the townscape of Camp de Mar.
Activities in Camp de Mar
Camp de Mar is located at the foot of the Tramuntana mountains, making it an ideal starting point for hikes and a hotspot for explorers. On the outskirts of the village are the remains of a 16th century watchtower, once built to protect the coast from pirates. The historic rampart can be reached by a short hike.
There are boat trips from the beach to Sa Dragonera, for example - an enchanting place for nature fans. The uninhabited dragon-shaped island is a nature reserve, home to the endemic Balearic lizard, Balearic shearwater and Eleonora's falcon. Several species of gulls also choose the island as a breeding ground.
The village of Sant Elm is very close to Camp de Mar and offers numerous hiking trails, such as the famous "La Trapa", which is the name of the ruins of a former Trappist monastery. The former monastery is located in the remote "Val de Sant Joseph" between Sant Elm and Estellencs on the south-western edge of the Serra de Tramuntana.
The location to the island's capital Palma and the airport is almost ideal, as the village is about 25-30 minutes by car from the lively metropolis.

Camp de Mar itself also has some shops, good restaurants and a small, picturesque bay surrounded by rocks for relaxing. The village has small supermarkets, some nice boutiques and shops. The nearby towns of Paguera, Andratx and Puerto de Andratx have various shopping facilities such as:
