Do you know where to watch the best sunset in Mallorca? It is undoubtedly one of the most magical experiences in the Balearic Islands, especially in the summer, when the warm afternoons and nights are filled with smiles and the subtle clinking of gin & tonic glasses. Keep reading to discover our list of the best locations to watch the sunset on the Mallorcan island.
Key spots to watch a magical sunset in Mallorca
Its spectacular Mediterranean climate, charming landscapes and the infinite number of viewpoints, bars or beach clubs with terrace in Mallorca, make the island an ideal destination to enjoy unique sunsets. It’s true, the island is already a paradise in itself, but when it comes to witnessing the most beautiful sunset, some places are more special than others.
Check out some of those key locations to enjoy the experience:
Faro Cap Gros lighthouse
Have you ever watched the sunset from a lighthouse? The Far Cap Gros is located 120 metres above sea levels, perched right on the cliff of the same name, Cap Gros, in Sóller.
This lighthouse is one of the best places to enjoy the sunset in Mallorca and, at the same time, take in the unmatched views to the entire Bay of Sóller and the port. If you plan on visiting this location, you can generally do so peacefully without any hassle since the parking lot there isn’t usually too crowded. Additionally, on your way to or from the lighthouse, you can stop at the popular Es Mirall bar and restaurant, where you can indulge in a refreshing drink while admiring the views.
Sa Foradada viewpoint
This spot is a classic when it comes to enjoying the Mallorca sunset right in the Serra de Tramuntana, declared World Heritage by UNESCO. Found along the road that goes from the town of Valldemossa to Deià, the Foradada viewpoint is one of the favourite places to enjoy the sunset for most local residents and now for many tourists too. It is quite common to go there on Sundays when one can enjoy the natural environment and the sunset accompanied by great music and a drink from the bar there.
The Mirador de Sa Foradada is a unique and special place with spectacular views that you cannot miss out on while on the island. We suggest you go there with sufficient time since it might be able to park there if you’re not early. Also, it could be a great idea to visit Valldemossa and try the town’s traditional potato buns (“Coca de patata”) and a Mallorcan almond iced drink. This way you’ll be just minutes from the viewpoint by car.
If you are wondering where to watch the best sunset in Mallorca, the Purobeach Palma beach club must be included amongst your favourite places. In fact, it is the most authentic proof that you don’t need to stray too far from the capital of Palma to witness an unforgettable sunset on the island.
Purobeach Palma is located along the Bay of Palma, in its very own peninsula with incredible 180º sea views. It is one of the most popular beach clubs in Mallorca and has a large terrace, pool, restaurant, and a spa centre that offers yoga and meditation classes too. Sunsets are so spectacular there, that the beach club has created a “Sunset Experience”.
From Monday to Thursday, the #purosunsetexperience is available from 7 PM approximately. With this experience, you can witness how the sun goes down right in Palma Bay while enjoying a delicious signature cocktail and some tasty tapas with your loved ones. All of that, with the best Puro Music in the background, so you can dance amidst a show of colours and beauty.
