As one of the world’s most subscribed islands, Majorca certainly isn’t short of coastline from which to enjoy some pretty spectacular sunsets. Palma itself, with its sun-drenched balconies and sandstone buildings, gives a new meaning to golden hour as the sun dips into the ocean. But it’s not just the city. The whole island knows how to welcome the evening in the right way. From the sandy spires of Palma to balmy beaches across the island, make the most of Majorca’s sunsets in these sought-after spots.

5illes BEACH&SUNSET

With three distinct locations, it’s not hard to see why aptly named 5illes Beach & Sunset would be on this list. So, slip on your shades and head to the beautiful strip of sand that is Platja dels Estanys. You may be forgiven for coming here to lounge about all day, but those in the know come here for the sunsets. From 5illes beachside terrace, you can enjoy an Aperol Spritz and aperitivo-friendly bites while watching the sky turn multiple shades of orange.

Sky Mar de Nudos

Chic restaurant, Mar de Nudos, offers the perfect bookend to a day exploring Palma. Plus, it’s home to a cracking rooftop terrace, Nudos Sky, that overlooks the swish new marina of Puerto de Palma. No wonder seats are hard to come by, the panoramic Mediterranean and Japanese fusion dining experience attracts a beautiful crowd of sunset seekers to snack on sushi and watch the sun go down over the harbour. Enjoy a late afternoon aperitivo while gazing out at the sky over the bay.

Anima Beach

The ace up Palma’s vibrant sleeve is that it’s both a beach resort and a city of culture, all rolled into one pretty package. Anima Beach is evidence of this, with its prime beachfront location just minutes away from the iconic Palma Cathedral. Whatever your vibe – from sunbeds to a chic restaurant, a trendy cocktail bar to a swanky VIP lounge – you’ll find a prime spot for 360-degree sunset viewing. What better place to share some top-notch tapas and enjoy an Aperol Spritz while the sun goes down over the sea.

Cassai Beach House

You’ll rarely enjoy a more glorious sunset than the one you’ll take in over Cassai Beach House, enjoying an Aperol Spritz on the sunny beachside terrace of this renovated fisherman’s house turned popular hangout. Views of the silhouette of the neighbouring island of Cabrera add to the whole experience, but the main event is watching the light slip away into the sea. Of course, don’t forget to savour an unbeatable meal from the onsite restaurant after your aperitivo.

Cap De Formentor

Affectionately named the Land’s End of Majorca, Cap de Formentor is located on the jagged northernmost tip of the island. It’s a truly magical place made even more magical when the sun dips into the ocean, illuminating the waves as far as the eye can see. The surrounding scenery is equally jaw dropping, with pine clad beaches and striking mountain ranges giving plenty of opportunities for a photo. So don’t forget to bring the camera!

Siso Beach Majorca

It’s set on a beach – hence the name – and the avant-garde space, great cocktail list and expertly crafted menu make it well worth a trip. Perched right on the waterfront, their terrace is an incredible place to watch the sun go down while enjoying an Aperol Spritz. And did we mention the beach setting and the waterside views? Because they’re both so dreamy that they deserve to be mentioned twice.
