Sunset is the most magical time of day wherever you find yourself in the world. Being an island, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to locating a place to watch the sun go down in Mallorca. 

Imagine soaking up the evening glow of the sunlight over a dreamy dinner or a cocktail alfresco style. Perhaps you’re a hopeless romantic and want to escape the crowds for a sunset cruise along the coastline.

Here’s a guide to how we think you should spend your sunsets in Mallorca.

1. Sa Foradada (Deià)
2. Roxy’s Beach Bar (Puerto Portals)
3. 49 Steps (Palma)
4. Assaona (Palma)
5. Mini Bar  (Port de Sóller)
6. Hotel Illa d’Or (Port de Pollença)
7. Mhares Sea Club (near Palma)
8. Sunset boat trip
9. Serra de Tramuntana (west of Mallorca)

1. Sa Foradada - Deia

Sa Foradada claims to have not only one of the best sunsets in Mallorca but of the world. This restaurant and bar is located on a cliff edge in the west of the island, near Deià. Its secluded, rustic setting just adds to the atmosphere as the sky and sea light up with an explosion of golden light. Book to avoid disappointment, then kick back and relax with a traditional Spanish paella and watch one of the best sunsets in the world.

2. Roxy's Beach Bar - Puerto Portals

On the eastern side of Portals beach is where you will find the intimate Roxy’s Beach Bar. There is a relaxed, yet fun, feel to the place thanks to its cool crowd and rustic setting on the rocks. In recent years, it has become the place to be and a renowned haunt for the rich and famous who tend to anchor their yachts just in front of it. Its mojitos, strawberry daiquiris and rosé wine appear to be the drinks of choice here. Roxy’s sunsets are always lively in the summertime and you will want to come back and do it all over again.

3. 49 Steps - Palma

For an upbeat atmosphere and some of the best views over Palma's port and cathedral at sunset, head over to 49 Steps, located along Palma’s Moll Vell marina. From here, the sun sets behind the mountains creating an enchanting light over the city. You will find many people gathered for a good photo opportunity in front of some impressive superyachts. It’s great for a spot of people watching too.

4. Assaona - Palma

In Palma, there is nothing quite like putting your feet up and unwinding with a cocktail in your hand after a hard day exploring the city centre. Assaona, the hottest beachside setting in the city right now, can be found on the seafront promenade to the east of the cathedral on the cusp of Portixol. It is one of the top locations to watch the sun go down over the west of the city. This hybrid restaurant-come-beach club boasts quality furnishings and a cool Ibiza-esque boho vibe.  Here you can indulge in some top quality food, a range of cocktails (be sure to check out their signature cocktail menu) or just a thirst-quenching beer. You can even jump in the sea for a spot of swimming before or after the main event as it sits on Palma’s urban beach.

5. Mini Bar - Port de Soller

A stroll along the promenade when Port de Sóller is drenched in the magical light of golden hour before sunset is an absolute must. To savour the moment, we recommend a trip to Mini Bar and its elevated terrace along the seafront. It has the best seats in the house for sunset with its views over the port and has become a prime spot to catch the last rays of light before twilight comes and the sky is painted with grey and pink. Add a cocktail or a gin and tonic with some local olives to the mix and we have all the ingredients for the perfect sunset.

6. Hotel Illa d’Or - Port de Pollença

Even if you can’t see the sun go down from here, as the sun casts the last of its golden rays down on this beautiful island it sets the sky ablaze making the scenery in Port de Pollença extremely beautiful. From the terrace at Hotel Illa d’Or you can watch the silhouette of the yachts anchored in the bay as the water shimmers in the light. There is a wide range of cocktails and other delicious treats available here and we guarantee it will be an all-around heavenly experience.

7. Mhares Sea Club - near Palma

If a beach club setting is more to your taste, then Mhares Sea Club might tempt you. Sunsets here are not only a magical sight that will mesmerise you but you also have the opportunity to relish them from the comfort of a massage table. The perfect ending to the day if you ask me. Or finish the week in style at their Sunday DJ sunset sessions with a cocktail in hand at their new Bauxa space.

8. Sunset boat trip

If you fancy pushing the boat out (pun intended) to make your sunset a truly unforgettable experience, then why not book a boat trip. There are a number of companies offering sunset cruises around the island but there isn’t anything quite as romantic as a sailing yacht at sunset. Prices usually include a glass of champagne and other drinks as well as snorkelling equipment and life jackets. Enjoy the sunset in style!

Book a Boat Trip

9. Serra de Tramuntana

The rugged mountain range on the west of the island, the Serra de Tramuntana, offers many vantage points so you could always take your own picnic and enjoy the jaw-dropping views in privacy. If you want to create a romantic atmosphere, why not order a special meal from one of our handpicked caterers on the island?
