First part of our selection
Today we want to show you a small selection of the most beautiful sunsets on the island. It has not been easy to choose, but we will start with the first part and in future posts we will show you many other equally surprising places.
Before showing you our choice, it must be said that Mallorca is an island that hides magical corners, and its sunsets could not be less magical... The sea, the mountains and the sun, certainly a Mediterranean dream! Here goes our first part of the best sunset spots on the island:
For our team, the first place that came to mind when we mentioned the phrase “best sunsets in Mallorca” has been Sa Foradada. We do not know if it is a coincidence or it really is the gem of the island in terms of beautiful sunsets.
We all agree that there is nothing more Mediterranean than a sunset in Sa Foradada, where the sun disappears beyond the horizon of the sea melting into orange and pink, next to a large rock, all very characteristic for the island. A true spectacle!
You will find this cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, located between the road from Valldemossa to Deià. You can also find a restaurant and bar located in this place.
Faro de Formentor (Formentor’s lighthouse)
This magical place located in the north of Mallorca, was built in the mid-19th century and due to its great beauty combining sea and mountains, it has become one of the most visited places on the island.
Although it is true that in order to see the sunset you have to travel about 20km from Port of Pollença, and it is a winding road. Also, if you go in summer with your own car, it has a restricted area that closes down all traffic from 10am to 7pm, but it can always be accessed by bus. We assure you it is definitely worth the trip!
Located close to Cap de Formentor, about halfway to the end of the road, you can find the Talaia d'Albercutx. It was originally a small defense tower built around the end of the 16th century located 380 meters above sea level.
This particular spot, though, is not your typical sunset viewpoint, since it is surrounded by mountains and can go rather unnoticed depending on the time of year (we recommend it in autumn), although throughout the year you enjoy incredible views and colors.
A mandatory stop to make before reaching the Talaia (or if you decide to go to the lighthouse), is to stop at the Es Colomer viewpoint.
A recommendation for these two places in the northern area is to arrive with plenty of time as the road is very narrow and there can be a lot of traffic.
This place is on our secret list, since it is not a very famous place. The tranquility here is assured. We are now at the western end of the island, in a charming Mallorcan village with privileged views of the islet of Sa Dragonera.
To access, we recommend that you leave the car parked in one of the parking lots offered at the entrance of Sant Elm (or you can access by bus) and walk through the town until the end. You will find a path along the coast leading you to an area known as Punta Blanca (in google maps you will find it perfectly), and when you arrive, the only thing we recommend is that you relax and enjoy the views that nature gives you.
For the more active explorer, there is also the possibility to continue along the same path until reaching the Torre de Cala en Basset. The views from this point of Sa Dragonera are even more spectacular.
Now you just need to go and tell us which is your favorite place! We love reading your opinions.
