Nightlife in the North of Mallorca

Ponderosa Beach Club Review, Alcudia - Playa de Muro

Places to aim for:

  • Port de Pollenca

  • Port d’Alcudia 

  • Can Picafort

  • Playa de Muro

Offering a refreshing change of scenery from the popular lair of Palma, Port d'Alcudia in the north of Mallorca is a bustling town bursting with life. Being one of the liveliest places in this part of the island to play at night in the summer months, this resort is home to a multitude of music bars and nightclubs. Alcudia has a varied selection of nightlife on offer, with several quiet bars and cosy restaurants. The marina or beachfront would be the ideal place to start your evening, moving on for late night action to ‘Avenida Pedro Mas y Reus’ (also known as ‘Dollar Street’) offers a huge line up of Irish pubs playing live music. Just 1km away in the town centre of Alcudia, along the coastline, there is an assortment of dual-floored discotheques for the 18-30 crowd, offering terraces, pool areas, international DJs, and themed/foam/neon parties. All the ingredients one could want for late night celebrations, stag parties and hen dos. 

Puerto Pollenca whilst not commonly renowned for its clubbing scene, is still a great place to enjoy drinks after dark with several bars radiating a fun atmosphere. Busy with both holiday makers and locals, Puerto Pollenca is never overcrowded and is consistently social in the summer months. The main square and ‘Pinewalk’ is where you’ll find several busy terraces with good music including pop, rock, and karaoke. As well as relaxing lounge bars on the beachfront, there is one club just off the main square open until late. For those wanting to continue their evening, Alcudia is just a short taxi ride away. 

Majorca’s seaside resort of C’an Picafort, lies in the northern bay of Alcudia, it’s atmosphere is lower key, in keeping with the peaceful resort.

More entertainment venues can be found within the larger hotels, as well as several pubs ringing out karaoke, German-style beer gardens and two early hours nightclubs. The only thing they are perhaps lacking in, is a beach club.

Nightlife in the East and Southeast of Mallorca

La Havana Nightclub, Cala Millor interior

Places to aim for:

  • Cala Millor

  • Cala Bona

  • Cala d’Or

  • Colonia Sant Jordi

  • Santanyi

  • Manacor

  • Llucmajor

Late-night partying isn’t the main attraction along the east coastline of Mallorca, that said, the touristy resorts of Cala Millor, Cala Bona, Cala d’Or and Colonia de Sant Jordi all have their fair share of no-frills taverna’s, chiringuito style bars, wineries  and the odd discotheque obliging the more exuberant holidaymakers. So fear not, there will be the chanceto sit with your feet in the sand and a cocktail in hand within most beach resorts on this side of the coastline. It is important to note that many of these resorts tend to accommodate seasonal bars and clubs, open only between the months of April and October. 

In the off-season, some action can still be found away from the touristy trail of the coastline, as a few of the larger traditional Mallorquin towns feature year-round bars and late-night venues within their infrastructure. We would recommend heading to Llucmajor, Santanyi or Manacor if you are staying close-by and are looking for some busy nightlife scenes.
