The small village of Estellencs, situated facing the sea in a valley of deep mountain slopes on the western part of the Tramuntana mountain range, between Andratx and Banyalbufar, preserves with its 384 inhabitants all the charm of the real Mallorca. The peace of its stone streets, the spectacular terraces dedicated to agriculture, the cove with its small port, the fountain-springs and the singular system of water distribution, together with many other attractions, such as the welcoming spirit of the inhabitants, the great number of excursions that can be carried out in the area or the old church of Saint John the Baptist, make Estellencs one of the most attractive villages on the Island.

A compulsory visit for those who wish to get to know the North coast and the Tramuntana mountain ramge, Estellencs has a small, but select, offer for accommodation and restaurants. As far as hotels go, the most well known is the Hotel Maristel with four stars. There are two more small hotels: the Hotel Nord with eight rooms, set in a reformed house in the Plaça des Triquet, facing the old defence tower; and Sa Plana Petit Hotel with five rooms, in a house on the outskirts of the village towards Andratx.

With respect to the restaurants and bars, in the higher part of the urban centre are the Restaurant Montimar, the Restaurant Son Llarg and the Restaurant Maristel. Leaving the village towards Banyalbufar, is the Pizzeria Giardini; and further away, on the Andratx road, opposite the petrol station, is the Restaurant Es Grau. Meanwhile, also in the upper part there are the Cafeteria Estellencs and the Cafeteria Vall Hermós; and in the Cala Estellencs, the bar Sa Punteta, places where food is also served. Finally, we mention Sa Tanca, a bar in the lower part of the village, and the meeting point for the people from the village.

The municipality, that celebrates its patron saint's day for Saint John the Baptist around August 29, has a public primary school and the majority of its inhabitants are members of the Cultural Association. Finally, Estellencs houses the S'Olivar Foundation.
