Cap de Formentor Lighthouse
This stunning lighthouse is perched 384m above the sea, located in the east of Mallorca’s Formentor peninsula. One of the prettiest lighthouses this island has to offer, the Sa Creueta viewpoint will make you feel like you are on top of the world, providing incredible panoramas of Sierra de Tramuntana and even over to Menorca on a clear day. Watch the sun gradually melt into the sea below you and experience one of the most picture-perfect Mallorca sunset experiences possible. Cars are banned to keep the peace, but the site is easily accessible by foot, bike or shuttle bus.
Es Trenc Beach
With a wild and natural aesthetic, this beautiful and remote beach – Es Trenc is not attached to any resort – is the perfect place for a romantic sunset stroll. With white sands and gin-clear sands, it is often referred to as Spain’s answer to the Caribbean. It’s an unofficial nudist beach, so don’t be shocked if you encounter those who have decided to forgo swimsuits – you’ll likely too dazzled by the exquisite sunset to notice.
Easily accessible by yacht, Sa Dragonera is tiny uninhabited island and nature reserve just off Mallorca’s southwest coast. Here you can watch dusk fall surrounded by the friendly lizards that are native to this dragon-shaped island – you will be awed by the sheer number of so-called dragonets you see here. This is an especially great spot for families with young kids; you can even head to the island’s small-but-perfectly-formed beach to watch with the sand between your toes.
Mirador Ses Barques
Another stunning hilltop viewpoint, Mirador Ses Barques is in north-west Mallorca and comes with a cafe/restaurant where revellers can grab a drink or a bite to eat. Offering one of the best sunsets of Mallorca, this is a popular proposal spot and sees everyone, from couples dressed to the nines to exhausted hikers stopping for a well-earned rest, pass through. If you do decide to eat here, try to get a table on the edge-of-deck, offering front row seats to nature’s most beautiful show.
Port de Soller
Until recently a best-kept secret thanks to its location at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana, Port de Soller was only made more accessible in the 90s with the opening of the Soller Tunnel, and has maintained all of its laid-back coastal charm. It offers incredible mountain scenery and views of the sparkling Mediterranean, while its position in the west allows for a magnificent Mallorca sunset every night. Why not spend a full day on this golden-sand beach – Port de Soller is full of cute seafront restaurants and bars to explore.
