A sunset in Mallorca can be spectacular, if you know where to find the best places to see how the sun sets, and enjoy its colors. If you live in Mallorca, surely you already have your favorite place to watch the sunset in Mallorca. But if you’re coming to Mallorca for the first time, take note of the following list of recommendations where to enjoy your sunset.
Sunset in Mallorca
The first thing we need to plan it is to know the exact time of sunset. For this there are many apps that inform you of the time, determine the position of the sun and even simulate how the sunset will be. Among some recommendations of apps: sun seeker, photopills, suncal org … Although if we do not want to install any app, it will be enough to write in google “sunset time in Mallorca” to know the time.
Second, some tips to capture the ideal photo:
- Take care of the focus: try to focus manually, and if you do it with the mobile, focus to infinity.
- Decide if you want the sun to rise in the photo, and look at the shadows.
- Try to have some clouds, because the sunset photos without any cloud, they are usually boring.
- Mixing sunlight with artificial light: mixing the sunset light with artificial lights such as luminous signs gives you an interesting aesthetic.
- Edit the photo just and without exceeding if not necessary.
The third thing we need is to look for a good place to watch the sunset.
Places to watch the sunset in Mallorca
The list of places in Mallorca could be very extensive, because there are great places to watch the sunset. The sites listed below are simply our suggestions, nor are they the only ones or necessarily the best, just suggestions:
Sa Foradada Viewpoint
It is the most popular and emblematic place in Mallorca to watch a sunset. It is a place that has something magical, in the Sierra de Tramuntana and with the rock of the Foradada. We recommend you arrive with enough time, since it is a very popular place, and the parking area is not excessively wide. Once there, you can go to the bar and take a seat on the terrace to enjoy the sunset.
Es Trenc Beach
The sunset + beach + chill out combination is a winning combination, and at the beach of Es Trenc they know it. Every evening their beach bars organize parties and events, play chill out music and offer delicious cocktails.
Lighthouse of Formentor
Another emblematic place in Mallorca and ideal to see both sunrise and sunset. At the north end of the island, and located at the end of a winding road, we reach this lighthouse.
Sailboat ride with sunset
An option to watch the sunset with style. Get on a classic sailboat in the bay of Pollensa, with a maximum of 12 passengers, and sail while enjoying the last rays of sun disappearing on the horizon. Combine it with a swim in the high seas, dinner and drinks and you can enjoy a unique experience.
Cap Blanc Lighthouse
Another lighthouse to add to the list of places to watch the sunset. This one is located in the southern part of the island. From the lighthouse you can see the entire bay of Palma, the cliffs of Cap Blanc and the sun as it disappears on the horizon.
One of those magic places of Mallorca, and of the most touristic. It is an excellent proposal to see the light show at the last minute of the day, when there are a few people, and with a gin and tonic in hand taking advantage of the last bath of the day. In addition, at that time of day, in La Calobra you can breathe a magical atmosphere, nothing to do with the hustle and bustle during the day.
Tower of Ses Animes
No doubt on the coast of the Sierra de Tramuntana there are many places to enjoy the sunset. In this case we go to a defensive watchtower of the year 1579 located on a cliff, with an incredible view that combines the blue of the sea and the orange of the last rays of sun. And after sunset, we can take the opportunity to dine in the village, another place that is well worth a visit.
Sa Torre de Llucmajor
Sa Torre is a possession of Llucmajor, located in the marina area, where we find a natural balcony where you can witness the sunset with the imposing cliffs and the bay of Palma. The viewpoint of Sa Torre offers excellent panoramic views with the bay of Palma, Bellver Castle, the port of Palma, and at the bottom the old Marés quarries used to build the Cathedral.
Beach bars to watch the sunset
In Mallorca there are many beach bars that provide a great experience to spend the last hours of the day, and watch the “sunset”. We have already mentioned some previously, such as Sa Foradada or Es Trenc. Some others to add are those found in Port Andratx, Camp de Mar, Illetes, Cala Blava … the options are many and varied.
