Mallorca is the largest island of the Balearic archipelago, a Mediterranean jewel full of cities, beaches, coves and nature that offers dream sunsets. Discover in this article the best places to watch the sunset and enjoy the magic of that moment at the end of the day.
The five best sunsets in Mallorca
Sa Foradada viewpoint
The Sa Foradada viewpoint is located in the Tramuntana mountain range, in the Mallorcan municipality of Deià, a setting where the mountains meet the sea through rocky cliffs, resulting in an idyllic place to watch the sunset.
Due to its fame, it is a very busy place, so we advise you to go well in advance to find parking.
The surrounding area has a terrace bar from which you can also watch the sunset, but if you really want to enjoy its magic and the best views, the best thing to do is to follow a simple path that takes you close to the coast.
On the edge of the cliff and 300 metres above sea level you will find the lighthouse of Formentor, where the surroundings will leave you speechless.
The road that takes you to the lighthouse and runs along the Formentor peninsula is full of curves until you reach the highest point, where you will find the imposing lighthouse.
Watching the sunset from the lighthouse of Formentor is an unforgettable spectacle. From the top of the lighthouse, you can see how the sun slowly sinks into the horizon, painting the sky with golden, pink and orange tones. The sea becomes calmer and the landscape is transformed into a mixture of colours and shadows. It is a perfect moment to enjoy the tranquillity and natural beauty of the island.
Es Trenc Beach
Es Trenc beach is located in the south and is one of the most famous beaches on the island, an unspoilt natural spot that stretches for more than 3 km of white sand and crystal clear water.
Sunset on Es Trenc beach is a spectacular experience. As the sun goes down the surroundings fill with colours creating an unforgettable atmosphere. The view of the sunset over the sea is breathtaking and it is a perfect moment to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the island.
Having a Car hire in Mallorca makes access to the beach even easier. The parking is large, has a capacity of 300 vehicles and is chargeable. You can also reach the beach by bus, the nearest bus stop is 200 metres away. Undoubtedly an essential visit if you are in Mallorca.
To the west of the island, in a quieter area, we find Sant Elm, a charming little Mallorcan village. From here you can watch the sunset with views of the islet of Sa Dragonera, where you will see the sun set behind it.
To get there you must leave your car parked in a parking at the entrance to the village. From there, you will find a path along the coast that leads to Punta Blanca, where all you have to do is wait and enjoy the sunset.
Don’t forget to take your camera or your phone to capture the moment and keep an unforgettable memory of this beautiful sunset in Sant Elm.
Cap Blanc lighthouse
The Cap Blanc lighthouse is one of the oldest lighthouses on the island and offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean from where you can see one of the best sunsets on the island.
If you have a rental car, you can easily reach the lighthouse from the Ma-19 motorway in the direction of Llucmajor and then follow the signs to Cap Blanc. The lighthouse is located at the end of a dirt road.
It is a magical place to watch the sunset, as when the light completely disappears, Cap Blanc transforms into a very pleasant place where people dine outdoors during the summer and make music on full moon nights. Also, during the festival of the Tears of San Lorenzo, tourists and locals alike flock here to watch the star shower.
